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 …

Japan Trip '16: Sushi Bar Yasuda

I had to save my best dining experience in Japan for last at Sushi Bar Yasuda!  When my husband and I entered the small, intimate restaurant, we saw Chef Yasuda standing alone at the bar.  He had no facial expression (maybe he was getting into the zone?).  As everyone sat down, he was preparing our foods and began talking to us in a calm, friendly manner.  
As the night progressed, we all were having interesting conversations with Chef Yasuda from his life back in New York (he was the former owner of Sushi Yasuda), sushi making techniques (and secrets!), him getting to know a bit about his patrons, and so on. I had told him that we were from Las Vegas, NV and he made fun of how it was impossible to get great sushi to the desert.  Well, after eating my omakase meal, I would have to agree with him!

Now onto the food, if you haven't recognized him yet, Chef Naomichi Yasuda is featured in CNN's Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown episode in Tokyo, Japan.  If you've seen this epis…

Elixir

When I heard that my friends wanted to meet up at the new local lounge, Elixir to watch a football game, I assumed this place would be like some neighborhood bars - a lot of drinks, but with subpar food... I was completely wrong!  Elixir had modern decor:


Interesting drinks:

And foods that are made in-house including the breads, and their meats are never frozen:

If you're looking for a different bar to watch a sports game, I recommend going to Elixir!  This lounge has a nice, chill atmosphere.  Also, their Happy Hour Specials have a lot to offer (there are new items that aren't in their site yet).
