Rosemary Restaurant Las Vegas

My wife and I had dinner tonight at Rosemary Restaurant out on West Sahara Boulevard, about 8 miles west of the strip. Although a little out there, the trip was definitely worth while as the meal and service were outstanding. Shortly after we ordered we were each brought an amuse bouche of a crispy won ton with whipped goat cheese on a carmelized onion reduction sauce I believe. That was followed by a second amuse bouche of grits with a creamy garlic mushroom ragout. For starters, we had a sweet corn soup with a dollop of chive cream and a parmesan cheese souffle with the same or similar creamy garlic mushroom ragout. For mains, we had halibut over sauteed spinach and a muscadet butter sauce and perfectly cooked veal tenderloin over roasted potatoes and red wine reduction sauce. There was a little crispy bacon with the potatoes which gave a jolt of salt to the bites of veal that included some of the bacon. I think the dish would have been better for me without the bacon. For desserts we had rhubarb strawberry cobbler with ice cream and here was the only less than stellar note a coconut bread pudding with coconut ice cream and dark chocolate sauce. Neither one of us were wild about the bread pudding. To finish off the meal, we were brought a little plates of sweets to enjoy with our coffee. Sunday night, the restaurant's wines are 50% off. We enjoyed a 2004 Gigondas. Unfortunately, I don't recall the producer. The wine had nice fruit, nice nose and great mouth, but the finish on the wine was a little short and tended to fall off. We recommend highly for a great meal and the big bonus is the restaurant is not located in a casino or on the strip as far as we are concerned. We would definitely return.
