A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

IMG_3257It feels like Steve Wynn didn’t spare any expense with his luxury hotel. Their lobby is another one of my favorites.

IMG_3258The Wynn tapped famed event planner Preston Bailey to create this hot air balloon that is 20 feet tall and weights 4,000 pounds.

IMG_3274There is also a working carousel that is 13 feet tall, 16 feet wide and weighs 6,000 pounds. Every three weeks the property replaces more than 5,000 seasonal flowering plants. Amazing!

IMG_3260Travel down the escalator to the lower floor to SW Steakhouse.

IMG_3261The lighting!

IMG_3262If you can, try and sit out on the patio, it overlooks their lake of dreams – giving you prime seating for their shows. The have 8 in total that run on the half hour.

IMG_3263We arrive and get an inside table.

IMG_3264I would say that the dress for SW is business casual, although I did see some people wearing jeans.

IMG_3265You’ve heard me say many times before that you can judge how good your dinner will be by the breadbasket you receive. This one was exceptional. A French baguette, pretzel rolls and my favorite, the bacon and cheese rolls cooked in muffin tins. I could have eaten these for days!

IMG_3266We start with the King Crab Soup ($16). It was hard to taste the old bay that was supposed to be there, and to be honest, I thought that this was going to be a creamy soup. Either way, it was delicious and the “puff pastry crouton” on top was lovely.

IMG_3267The Ribeye ($58) was exceptional. The meat was a little fattier with great marbling and flavor. It comes bone in and was 20 oz.

IMG_3268I had the Scallops ($38) English pea risotto, pea vines, black truffle sauce. I almost had no room after the bread, but this dish was delicious – the scallops were perfectly cooked, a well executed dish. An excellent choice if you are not in the mood for steak.

IMG_3271Lemon tart ($12). As delicious as it was pleasing to look at. We licked the plate clean!

SW does offer a vegan menu for those in your party that may not eat meat. The food was delicious, but the service was excellent – some of the best that I’ve had. Mark was our server and I feel like I just had to think that I needed something and he was right there at the table. He was knowledgeable about the menu, confident in his recommendations, personable, and on top of everything that we needed. It was the service that really put SW over the top for us. Next time we are in Vegas, we will certainly be back!
