Any VMBers eat at Bazaar Meat at SLS yet?

    I know that there's a review, but that was a professional food critic.

    I was wondering if one of "us" had eaten there and had a review to share.

    There were lots of "match" promotions going around, but the size of the casino and the location isn't attractive to me.

    If I hit a hand pay, I might go over there.

    I'm not sure I would trust a restaurant named 'Bazaar Meat'

    I did back around Halloween. I got there just around opening for dinner. I had the Tortilla Sacromone and live sea urchin for appetizers I enjoyed the tortilla; I have never had a kidney omelette before, and think they should have something like that for breakfast. Not a lot of kidney in the end, a similar small amount of marrow, and a good amount of sweetbread. There was some sort of lemon foam in the sea urchin body, which seemed to overpower the roe itself.

    After this I had the skirt steak, which they undercooked to my delight (they promote cooking the beef to medium rare or something), asparagus, and potatoes au gratin. They had some issues bringing these three out at the same time, which was odd, because there weren't many customers when I was there. At some point in the meal I had that feeling of buyer's remorse that comes with spending $300+ on steak and taters, but, Vegas.

    Wine list was extensive, and while I know little about Spanish wines, there was one with a grape I was familiar with, and so I took it. Checking the retail on line afterwards, it looked like it was about 3.5 times the California retail.

    Service was OK, but I dress like the blue collar sort I am, so your mileage may vary.

    I guess this would be a good place for a large group that was noshing from small plates, and not very heartily, at that. Some of the things I didn't like, were that they filled the tables around me as people came in, and I thought the tables beside me were rather close. No bread. If you order a full sized steak, it takes something like 45 minutes. Food seemed to come out at random times.

    Bottom line, I'm not their target client. As a solo diner, I do better at tasting menus, and really, for the price, you aren't far from the likes of Guy Savoy, for an extra $100 or so. I won't go back.

    I have been to SLS five times now and have had the opportunity to sample all their restaurants. My LV condo is having a mixer there this coming week and I'll be back. Bazaar Meat is as good as the reviewers say it is. It's expensive - but the quality and service level fit. I used my Seasonal Nevada I.D. to get a locals "Code Card" and get substantial discounts.

    The Code Card offered no discounts for me. I think the restaurant receives a lot of hype. I enjoyed my meal which had a few hits and a couple misses. The tartare and suckling pig Panini were my favorite. I did not try any of the steak. Service was unpolished. Full details and pics can be found here.
