Restaurant @ The Palms Casino Resort
Let me start off by saying that I do not write many reviews, but I had to write one about this gem of a restaurant. We chose this restaurant based on a review by Sally Bernstein whom is a well known food critic. She mentioned that the restaurant served sweetbreads which is one of my favorite dishes. I am a gourmet cook, but sweetbreads are one dish I will not prepare at home, because of the days of preparation needed to perfect the dish. I called the restaurant, because I did not see that particular item on the menu. I was told that it was not a standard menu item, but that they would be glad to order it for me. I was then asked how I would like them prepared, or if I wanted to leave it up to the chef. I of course said leave it up to the chef! I was not disappointed! In fact, it was one the best meals I have had in a long time. I had the foie gras as an appetizer, and it too was prepared beautifully. My husband and friends (who live in Vegas, on the strip) ordered a 3 course meal which started with carpaccio or a salad, followed by fillet mignon or fish, and finished with chocolate soufflé or creme brûlée. The Fillet literally melted in your mouth, and the desserts were sinful. The staff was wonderful and treated us like royalty. I will definitely be returning to this restaurant, not for its magnificent views, but for its decadent food, and incredible service.
