    Here's the idea, play along if you like:

    Post pics of Vegas restaurant food. 1 restaurant per post. This way, anyone curious about a specific restaurant should be able to search this thread and see some pics of food from that restaurant. Feel free to add comments or reviews.

    I'll start:

    Momofuku at Cosmo:

    Pork Bun

    Pork Ramen

    Sat at the bar mid-day, so the place was almost empty. Both excellent: the pork bun was amazingly good, could have eaten a ton of those and been happy. Ramen was also good, heavy on the umami (which I loved).

    Lago at Bellagio:

    Fusilli with a lamb ragu

    IMG_0154.JPG

    Braised duck on Polenta

    IMG_0155.JPG

    The fusilli was excellent, perfectly al dente, and very well sauced (over sauced pasta is a pet peeve of mine) with a bolognese-like consistency. Duck was great at first bite, but the more I ate, the less I liked it.

    Good experience overall: sat at the bar and asked for recommendations. Bartender asked me a few questions about likes before making suggestions which I appreciate. Very comfortable solo dining, although I missed the view (I hadn't done my research, didn't realize there was an area with a fountain view).

    This will be a fun thread to follow! (Sadly, I do not have any pics of yummy food that I have had- maybe I should change that!)

    Yardbird at the Venetian

    Old Fashioned
    IMG_0046.JPG

    Skillet cornbread

    IMG_0047.JPG

    Fried Chicken

    IMG_0048.JPG

    First the old fashioned: no idea why it's so good but it is. It really is. I think the best I've had in Vegas.

    And the cornbread and chicken were amazing. Highly recommended.

    Edit to add: Finally found the other pics I was looking for. Liked the place so much, ended up back here a month later when I brought the team for a work conference.

    Did I mention I like the old fashioned?

    Deviled eggs: I don't like deviled eggs, but these were fantastic
    IMG_0241.JPG

    And fried chicken biscuits
    IMG_0245.JPG

    Liked the biscuits, but overall I'd get the full fried chicken instead

    Ahh..

    An open faced sandwich, from hand-tossed artisan dough, with tomato relish, aged milk and rennet compound, with thin-sliced dry-cured pork and beef sausage

    And served with a fine bubbly no less.

    NYNY: Nine Fine Irishmen

    A well poured Guinness

    And Fish and Chips

    Liked this place. Food was solid pub offering. Sat at the bar, and liked the vibe: it was lunchtime so pretty quiet, but thanks to a soccer game going on, there was a bit of a crowd. Enough to get a hint of what it could be when it's busy.
