CARNEVINO - Excellent! (Las Vegas)

I had the pleasure of dining at Carnevino this past weekend in Vegas and it was delightful! The service was attentive and the food was even better. It was a party of 6 and everyone left feeling like it was one of the best meals they've had.

Started off with the Affettati Misti (which we were told was made in-house) and the Big Eye Tuna Crudo. Both dishes were full of flavour and the tuna had a very fresh and light taste. The entire table ended up having the Bone In New York Strip and it was by far the best decision yet! Tender, flavourful, juicy and cooked perfectly. The table shared 4 sides - Greens with the house smoked pork, roasted beets, potato & parmigiano zeppole and the roasted sweet potatoes. Perfect sides that complemented the meal. The majority of us were too full for dessert but couldn't resist one that sounded tempting - a Toasted Honey Panna Cotta with crumbled gingersnaps and a Pear Sorbetti. Fantastic! Creamy with the right amount of sweetness and crunch and the pear sorbetti complemented it perfectly!

The service was some of the best that I've had - friendly, attentive and knowledgable. And at the end, we were rewarded with limoncello gratis that was made in-house. Beautiful.

Boulud vs. Bouchon in Vegas

I've got a quick question - travelling to Vegas and I need to figure out which place I should go to - Daniel Boulud Brasserie or Bouchon Bistro? I've read through the various posts and opinions seem split.

Or just bypass both of these and go to L'Atelier?

Thoughts? Please?

Thanks so much!
