March 6, 2014 Mesa Grill in Caesar’s Palace
We spent what seemed to be a lot of time at Caesar’s Palace.
Mesa Grill is Bobby Flay’s restaurant, and is located near the sports book in the casino. We had been to Mesa in the Bahamas and it was one of the best meals we have had, quite memorable. Needless to say we were excited to be able to have another meal here. I was a bit hesitant, could this meal live up to the high pedestal that we put Mesa on? I had built it up in my head, and how could another meal come close? It did, the meal was delicious and was indeed consistent with the meal we had in the Bahamas.
We ordered a bunch of appetizers as opposed to a full meal. Lobster tacos ($20) Tomatillo, Avocado + Pickled Red Onion, Habanero and Fennel Relish. Another great presentation. The colors and flavors were bright and fresh. A really well rounded dish.
Tiger Shrimp Roasted Garlic Corn Tamale ($18) with corn and cilantro sauce. You’re either in camp cilantro or not. I’m not, it tastes like soap to me, but I could barely tell it was in this dish. When I got to the end, I was wishing there was more, and again, the presentation of the dish was outstanding.
The service here was excellent, our server was experienced, knowledgeable and friendly. Our food came out promptly and everything was really delicious. We would highly recommend Mesa to anyone heading out to Vegas!
