I thought I would take more pictures of the food we ate while in Vegas. Neither my husband, or I, had ever been there before: a gazillion and one options for food. But then we we went on a date night, and everything else failed horribly in comparison.
The place we ate was the Stratosphere. A revolving restaurant with a bird's eye view of the strip and parts of the city. It takes about an hour and a half to go all the way around. The food is expensive, compared to what we are used to paying, but worth every last cent!
The first restaurant I've been to that warned that skyjumpers may pass by during dinner. We saw several as we dined.
My handsome date for the night :)
What this post is really about.. the food. I ordered an astralian wagyu steak with a compound butter on top. Absolutely amazing. One of the best steaks I've ever had (and I live in prime beef country.) The scalloped potatoes were hands down the best I've ever had. I kind of wrote them off (I think it's because my husband, when we were dating, would eat the boxed kind all the time, and fix them for me during date night. No comparison. In the background, you can see my husband's twice-baked potato. They say that the sides are worth sharing and they weren't kidding!
Dessert was amazing too. Layer upon layer of chocolate. Is there any other way? Our waitress was so much fun. We told her it was our first trip to Vegas and she chatted with us throughout the evening, and even added a candle to our dessert to make it just that much more special.
It was great to watch the city change from evening into night. The views were fabulous!
I even ran into Amanda, from Collaboration Cuties. She's just as sweet (if not sweeter) in real life as she is online!
The Stratosphere was worth the extra little bit. One of our favorite memories from the trip, and an experience we truly enjoyed. A place I would definitely recommend if you go to Las Vegas!
