Rose. Rabbit. Lie.

Rose. Rabbit. Lie at The Cosmopolitan is one of the most interesting places I've been to on The Strip.  I feel like I've fallen down the rabbit hole like Alice and somehow landed at this restaurant!  Rose. Rabbit. Lie. has multiple rooms that has a bar, speakeasy (separate drink menu from the bar), and has a show called Vegas Nocturne that plays at three different times throughout the night w/ different prices per time slot.  We opted to just dine in and will watch the show at another time.  Just eating at the dining room was great experience for me and my group!

The lovely dining room- I love how detailed everything was from the silverware, menu, and to the art:


Rose. Rabbit. Lie. has a creative drink menu.  The drinks on the top are Chrysanthemum and Mark Twain.  At the bottom is Floradora Imperial and Vivante Water- Earth friendly water:


This restaurant serves tapa style dishes, I was impressed with each of them :)
The dishes in this photo collage are:
Sauteed Calamari- flavored with lime, oil, garlic, and its own ink.
Oysters On The Half Shell- with Cognac cocktail sauce, mignonette, and horseradish sorbet.  Even if you don't like horseradish, you must try it, its unbelievably tasty!
Uni Perciatelli- with Alaskan king crab, shiso, and umami butter.  This pasta was al dente and the umami butter had a unique type of creaminess to it.
Brussel Sprouts- This popular dish comes with crispy chicken skin, manchego, and Spanish smoked paprika.  Loup De Mer en Croute- Branzino fish on creamed spinach, raisins, and verjus.
Ajo Blanco Gazpacho- This chilled appetizer comes in a bear (?) paw-shot glass with marcona almonds and green grapes.  Since it comes in a shot glass, just down this appetizer, its refreshing!


For dessert I got the Cookie Jar-  This was a fancy presentation for an assortment of cookies, which were freshly made.  There were cookies on the crown (lid) and inside the bear.  My favorite ones were the two oatmeal raisin (?) cookies with cream cheese-filling in between them:


Other things I liked about my dining experience was the top notch service- very attentive, yet not overbearing, and how part of the show spilled into the dining room for a bit.  I would say more, but you'd just have to see it for yourself.  Lastly, it costs $$$ to dine at Rose. Rabbit. Lie., but totally worth every penny!

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:
