First off, the vegan bread basket with Earth Balance. Yes, really. At this point, I was already saying quiet "Thank you, Steve Wynn"s under my breath.
I started off with the Caesar salad. Crunchy romaine and garlic-laced dressing come together beautifully in this swoon-worthy starter. A sprinkling of chives and black pepper round out the powerful flavors, making for the best damn Caesar I ever did have.
Next up? Gardein Marsala aka heaven on Earth. This dish of "chicken" with mushrooms in a savory marsala sauce served atop pillowy gnocchi was as good or better than anything I've ordered at high end vegan restaurants. In fact, it makes me kind of mad that other omni restaurants, especially those in which you're paying a premium, can't offer vegans something as high caliber as this. Come on other establishments, get you're vegan act together! And, while you're at it, make your dessert amazing too! Like this:
Beautiful, right? And this Cioccolato was as tasty as it was pretty. Deep, rich chocolate with the bright hint of raspberries was the perfect way to end our meal. Amazing.
The fact that these fabulous dishes came out of an omnivorous kitchen makes me feel so happy, and also like I can't wait to get back to Vegas to try out all the other restaurants in Steve Wynn's empire. I mean, the seafood place even does a vegan clam chowder, y'all. What? Yes.
