A Bohme Cooked Meal

Eating my way through Vegas!

So I recently took a girls weekend with some lovely ladies to Las Vegas.  I have to say that this was one of my favorite trips to Las Vegas as our only intention was to sit by the pool, go to 3 different Cirque shows (O, Michael Jackson and Zoomanity) and EAT.  This was the first time I had ever seen one of their shows and to see 3 shows in a 4 day span was amazing!  However, I was also able to visit 4 different celebrity chef restaurants while out in Las Vegas and this made me VERY happy.  The only other time I have been to a celebrity chef restaurant is when I was in Las Vegas last year for a roller derby convention and I snuck away to go to Gordon Ramsay's Burgr.  It was more than I could have imagined!

So for this trip, the best thing about eating with this group of ladies is that we all liked to eat.  And not like a bird!  We ordered multiple things and shared them all! I was so happy we did this as it allowed me to get a real sense of the each menu.

So let's get you to the food porn.  First Stop was Guy Fieri's Kitchen & Bar at the Quad.  We had just arrived in Vegas after a series of flights and a hotel mishap.  We were starving.

For appetizers we ordered buffalo fries!  (The sauce was the same that I used to make at Franks!!! YUMM) We also ordered crispy wanton tacos!

 Our waiter was pretty amazing and recommended we have the turkey burger off the menu!  I am so glad we did!  It was my favorite thing on their menu.

Next thing we ordered was a bacon cheeseburger that had macaroni and cheese on it!  Yum!

Lastly, we finished off with the ultimate cheesecake which had chocolate, pretzels and potato chips on it.  This was a pretty spectacular work of art but in the end this was the only thing that we had that I would not order again.  It was just regular old cheesecake at the end of the day!

 The next night we went to Gordon Ramay's Pub and Grill at Caesars Palace.  The waitress we had there was not nearly as amazing as the one we had the night before but that did not effect the taste of the food.

My drink for the night (a bit fuzzy...the room was super dark)

Pan-seared diver scallops with steamed clams with leaks, potato bacon chowder and confit tomatoes.  We were so hungry that we already started dishing out the food...so this plate is a bit messy!

Trip of pot pies- Chicken Pot Pie, Steak and Ale, and Shepherd's Pie (My favorite was the chicken)

I am not a curry fan but this was called Madras Butter Curry Chicken- Tomato with Butter, Yogurt, Aromatic Spices and Basmati Rice.  I LOVED IT!  First time I have ever had one I liked!

Lobster Mac and Cheese with Gruyere, English cheddar and Parmesan cheese!


Night 3 we went to Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill!  I am not sure what I was thinking but when the food came out to the table I was so excited to stuff it all into my face that I missed out on the majority of the pictures.  However we tried the following: Blue Corn Lobster Tacos, Tiger Shrimp and Roasted Garlic Corn Tamale, Rough Cut Tuna "Nachos and Yucatan Chicken Skewers!

We were still hungry after all of that so we ordered the grilled chicken  that had a cilantro pesto mashed potato.  I will be recreating these mashed lovelies at some point!

Our last stop was to Fleur by Hubert Keller!  We only had time for dessert and drinks and here is what was ordered!

Needless to say I ate my way through Vegas and would not have changed a single thing!
