I coaxed my Dad into going on our first night in Vegas and I am so glad I did. The décor is minimal yet homey. We were seated in booth that was almost like a separate room from the rest of the dining area. The menu is very simple. It is broken down into veggies, meats, preparation styles, etc. Truly Italian but in Tom’s unique way. We ordered the beet salad and an assortment of oysters. We then decided to share the roasted gras-fed NY strip which is also basted with butter and thyme while roasting. We then had the braised veal breast which I swear had been braised in milk. Both were divine! We had French fries and the sautéed morels. The French fries were fresh and just the perfect crispness and thickness. The morels were fresh but drenched in a salty sauce that was not very good. The took them back and replaced them with a sauce-less version that we just loved. We were too stuffed for dessert but the choices kept with the theme of the dinner menu. Simple choices like seasonal fruit and lovely desserts. Such a great meal . This guy totally gets it.
