You know you’re in Vegas when Mario Batali is more powerful than Caesar himself. Seriously, look at this! You turn a corner and there he is, waiting for you, with a pair of his orange Crocs!
Good thing that all his restaurants are pretty legit; otherwise Maya and I would be picking up an overpriced Chinese food at a food court at some sorry mall. And this place lived up to the reputation of Babbo of the West.
Appetizers: Complimentary chickpeas on toast, Warm Lamb’s Tongue, and Grilled Octopus.
Main Course: Seafood pasta and roasted Brussel sprouts
Dessert: Spiced Almond “Tronchetto”and I forgot the name of the other one 😛
