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!
