Trip Report - Country Club, Joe's, Guy Savoy, Bouchon, E, and Tableau

Country Club - We got to the Wynn and went and shared the French Dip that was recommended by a member of this board. It was very good served over a brioche bread with onions, cheese and au jus. The flavor profile is very similar to french onion soup. It was served with some fresh made tasty parmesan truffle potato chips. Went down well with a Guinness. Nice atmosphere overlooking the golf course. Grade - B+

Joe's - Later in the afternoon we stopped a Joe's and split a stone crab appetizer with a Blue Moon. They also gave us a nice bread basket with a dynamite pretzel roll. Grade B

Guy Savoy - For dinner we went to Guy Savoy and sat in the bar area and ordered off of their Bubbles and Bites menu. This has to be one of the best fine dining bargains in Vegas. They let you choose 4 small versions of their menu items for $45. My wife and I got 4 each and shared most of our dishes. The only dish we didn't share was the black truffle artichoke soup which we both ordered. This is one Guy Savoy's signature dishes and it was wonderful. In addition they serve you fantastic bread and amuse bouches. Other dishes we tried were Oysters in Ice Gelee (great), Iberico Ham (good), Mosaic of Poularde (great), Lobster (great), Salmon (good), Veal Sweetbreads (good). We also ordered a desert, two small pots of chocolate mousse and rice pudding(great) for $10. We also had two really good glasses of champagne each. All in all it was a great experience. I got to try some of Guy Savoy's signature dishes and didn't break the bank. Grade - A

Bouchon - We loved Bouchon last time we went to Vegas. We had the salmon rilletes and some waffles with strawberries. This time was not as good. We tried a chocolate almond croissant that was hard as a rock and we returned for an average regular croissant. My wife had the corned beef hash and I had a salmon baguette. The salmon baguette was actually very good but the corned beef hash was just ok. Grade - B-

E - Words cannot explain how much I enjoyed this meal and experience. After the meal I felt the same adrenalin rush and euphoria that I felt after I went skydiving. The service was impeccable. We were greeted with some cava at the bar while we waited for the other guests to arrive. We ate with 5 other people. All were wonderful people that we enjoyed the experience with. There were many laughs and conversations going on at the table. There were 24 courses so I will not go into all of the courses, but I will say that they were sized and paced beautifully. The head chef, Edwin, was engaging and interesting. The food was creative and delicious. Best meal of my life by a large margin. Grade - A++

Tableau - We finished our trip by sitting out on the patio and having the braised duck and eggs over a puff pasty with tomato hollandaise, white chocolate/orange french toast, and some pastries. The duck dish was one of the best breakfast dishes I've ever had. The french toast was very good. My wife loved it. The pastries were top notch as well. Grade - A

Overall, I was very happy with the dining choices I came up with based on my research.
