January 2015 - Las Vegas NV

We are in Las Vegas since mid December, but we are in a timeshare so we have done most of our cooking ourselves.
We usually only splurge on a fancy meal once a trip, the last two times it has been Gordon Ramsey's Steak in Paris Casino.


Last night we went to Emeril's Table Ten in the Venetian. They have a four course set menu for $45 and you can pair the wine for $28. We selected to do do both.

This is the menu as we selected. Photos taken by cell phone.

Taste of Table 10 Menu

FIRST COURSE 
CHICKEN + ANDOUILLE SAUSAGE GUMBO steamed rice - John really enjoyed this! But then if Emeril can't make gumbo who can?



BOSTON LETTUCE SALAD - I thought the dressing was too thin
windrose farms head lettuce-bacon- chive buttermilk dressing- heirloom tomatoes


CAPE MENTELLE SAUVIGNON BLANC ~ MARGARET RIVER, AUSTRALIA
or BANFI CHIANTI CLASSICO ~ TOSCANO, ITALY


SECOND COURSE
EMERIL'S NEW ORLEANS BBQ SHRIMP
gulf shrimp- New Orleans BBQ glaze rosemary biscuit - John didn't love the shrimp, I thought the gravy was amazing.



CANDIED NORTH COUNTRY FARM BACON Noble Tonic #1 - Don't judge me, I got this to share.



TALBOTT “LOGAN” SLEEPY HOLLOW VINEYARD
PINOT NOIR ~ SANTA LUCIA HIGHLANDS, CA


THIRD COURSE
WAYGU SKIRT STEAK roasted carrot - pearl onion - herb de provence - wine sauce We both enjoyed this. The carrots were a little hard. Loved the onions.

  2. I am not a huge Emeril fan-I went to his restaurant in Florida and must say I was not overtly impressed.

  3. I've never eaten in an Emeril restaurant, but several of those courses looked good to me. I'm not a big gumbo fan, though. The desserts look amazing.

  4. The food looks amazing! Especially the lemon bar. Vegas has never been high on my list because I'm not much of a gambler but I keep seeing mentioned relating to foods and I'm changing my mind quickly! Thanks for sharing!
