Visit Las Vegas: Giada at the Cromwell

I'm a longtime fan of Giada De Laurentiis, falling in love with her on the Food Network way back in 2002.  She has such a charming personality and it's such a pleasure to watch her work her magic in the kitchen.  It was great news to me that Giada would open her very first restaurant at The Cromwell, a boutique resort on the Las Vegas Strip, a destination I visit every year.  

It was difficult to get a dinner reservation for a party of ten even at a month in advance so I suggest you book as early as you can.  When we arrived for dinner, we took advantage of the complimentary photo booth in the waiting area.  We were already off to a super fun start!
The restaurant is stunning and exudes a warmth that is comforting.  It's classy, but you feel encouraged to relax with a drink (or two). 

I started off with Giada's signature cocktail, a delicious concoction that included egg whites and was marked with a G.  The bread basket was filled with home-made focaccia, lemon thyme flatbread and parmesan breadsticks.  We were presented with a dinner menu and a multi-course tasting menu that comprised portions of all her specialties.  

Because the tasting menu was served family style, our group decided to order off the dinner menu.  I had the lobster ravioli and the lemon potatoes.  The lobster ravioli was excellent.  The pasta was perfect and the lobster was delicious and succulent.  I would order it every time.  

For dessert, I had a latte and the cookie plate.  All three cookies were tasty, but the lemon ricotta was my very favorite.

Our group had the best time and the service was beyond our expectations.  Our server brought each of us a bit of sparkling wine so that we could cheers to 20 years out of high school.  His gesture was so awesome and made our fabulous experience unforgettable.  Love Giada's!
