The Barrymore

I got the opportunity to enjoy a complimentary dinner at The Barrymore inside the Royal Resort before it's grand opening.  I loved every aspect of this restaurant during my dining experience!  The friendly staff and their service, interior decoration, the display of wine, selection of jazz music, food quality, and reasonable prices pleased me!  I hope my pictures can give the reader an idea of what I mean:

The beautiful dining room for dinner.  I don't want to spoil the surprise of what the entire place looks like.  You can look it up at another site if you're that curious... 
Freshly baked bread
Lobster Mac & Cheese - with mascarpone-tallegio cream sauce.  It definitely did NOT taste like it came from a box.
Lobster "Deviled Eggs" 
The Crispy Fried Outer Banks Calamari - with romesco sauce (our waiter raved about it!), herbs, and lemon
Pan Seared Foie Gras - Specially fattened duck or goose liver with vanilla bean French toast, fig and cherry chutney.  The liver had a slightly sweet taste.  If no one told me this was a liver, I'd assume it was some dessert!  
Diver Scallops - ox-tail stew, potato galette on the bottom and mushroom emulsion.  I've never seen scallops this thick and meaty looking before!
Pan-Seared Salmon - with roasted fennel, bouillabaisse broth, and saffron rouille
I had the Vadouvan Squash Curry - squash and root vegetables in curry, topped with cous cous.  It came in an interesting genie bottle-like cover to preserve the smell and heat (?) of the dish.

Kabuto

Eating at Kabuto was a wonderful dining and learning experience for my fiance and I.  If you are truly a sushi/Japanese food enthusiast and am willing to pay $$$ for what you get, you must come to Kabuto!

We each ordered some à la carte items and the Nigiri Omakase, which includes an appetizer, ten pieces of sushi nigiri, hand roll, and dessert.  Our chef was the general manager, he's such a knowledgeable man!  He told us about the distinctive features of each fish, what his job entails, and funny stories.  I'm so glad he was our chef!

Since we sat at the bar, we were up close to see how our sushi chef worked.  He wasn't in a rush and we got to see the artistic side of how sushi is made. This made me appreciate my experience at Kabuto much more:


















Last note: Finding this place was also a learning experience for us, you may get aggravated looking for it in the strip mall... Kabuto is there! AND it's important to make a reservation before coming in because Kabuto is a very …

Herbs & Rye

After driving pass by Herbs & Rye for many years I finally went in to see what all the hype was about this place.  They serve classic cocktails that were popular during the Prohibition Era and before that time like the Gothic Age (unknown-1865) and Golden Age (1865-1900):

Here's an example of of some of the drinks:

I loved all the drinks they made, wasn't disappointed with any of them:


Herbs & Rye also serves Italian food like flatbreads, pasta, and  they're known for the steaks they cook, I'll try some next time!  I only had the appetite to drink:

I really enjoyed my time here especially the atmosphere of a "speakeasy feel".  They get busy during the weekends so if you plan to dine in, make a reservation!

Dirt Dog

If you are a hot dog fiend, I highly suggest checking out Dirt Dog! They specialize in gourmet bacon-wrapped hot dogs.  They're originally from LA, recently opened shop here in Las Vegas and planning to open another location on The Strip:
