All I can think about is food. I really spend most days wondering what my next meal will be. The other part of the day I wonder just how much effort it will take for me to find those stomach muscles I lost long ago. Fortunately, pool season is not for a few months so instead I'm going to dream about a few good meals at ARIA Las Vegas.
I stopped in to Tetsu recently and was blown away by the largest oyster I have ever had. I made a few new friends at the Teppan table and I motivated myself to learn way more than I know about Sake. I also fell in love with the Toro Caviar so much so that I'm putting it on my Christmas list. I hope someone reads this and is kind enough to get me a few servings. (Hint: You know who you are) Tetsu is located inside of Bar Masa at Aria and I might go so far as to say that I like Tetsu better. However, that is like saying I like a Maui sunset better than a Santa Monica Sunset. Both still bring me great joy.
Javier's Mexican food just opened right off the casino floor and it's worth a visit. I might be inclined to say that it is on the expensive side but I found that the portions are generous so you might want to share an entree and have a few extra margaritas. The Tablita platter is perfect for at least 3, (they suggest it's for 2) and you can make your own tacos right at the table while sipping on a Jalapeno Margarita.
Am I making you hungry yet? I could mention the beef and the wine at Jean Georges Steakhouse or the Paella at Julian Serrano. Both spots have a casual upscale feel that is perfect for a pre-theater meal. Julian Serrano is a bit more casual while Jean Georges can be a date night spot. Of course there is always American Fish to help take you over the culinary edge.
