Echo & Rig

One of the new Las Vegas restaurants to eat at is Echo & Rig, located in Tivoli Village:


One unique thing about this steakhouse is that they have butchers!  So if you really enjoyed their meats, you can learn more from a professional and bring some meat home:


Echo & Rig specializes in assortment of steaks:


We had heard that people raved over their Portobello Fries with Herb Aioli.  These thick slices of portobello fries were absolutely delicious!  This appetizer is worth trying:


My friends got the Bone Marrow Carne Asada:


I wanted to try a vegetable appetizer, so I ordered the Pumpkin Squash, Rosemary & Brown Sugar.  It was nicely cooked by it not being soggy, and light in sweetness:


Entree time!  These all cost $17.70, not bad for paying for fine quality meats.  I got to sample each of my friends' dishes and I could taste the freshness and juiciness in each of them, especially the lamb:

I had the Mary’s Chicken- ½ roasted chicken with white grits, herbs de Provence, and au jus.  The chicken paired quite well with the grits and the chicken was moist!:


My friend got the Sea Bass ala Plancha: with crispy skin and olive oil dipping sauce:


My husband got the Wood Roasted Salmon with Béarnaise.  This usually comes with meat juice, but since my spouse is a pescetarian, they didn't mind not including the meat juices:


My other friend got Colorado Lamb Porterhouse Chops with Peewee potatoes, dried apricots, and violet mustard:


We just had to get another appetizer.  This is the Grilled Octopus, Gigante Beans, Garlic & Green Olive Vinaigrette- this unique dish was surprisingly light to me!  I would've never pictured octopus with these beans, garlic, and vinaigrette:


Lovely view from the patio:


It was such a nice dining experience at Echo & Rig.  I look forward to eating their other dishes!
