Gordon Ramsey Steak
When it was time to order our main entree, our server brought out the meat wheel. It gives a visual representation of every steak they offer! This is our server Dennis doing his best Vanna White impression :)
Ivan ended up getting the Bone-in New York Strip 18oz. I was lucky enough to get a bite and I can honestly say this was the best steak I have ever eaten. It is so tender that it melts in your mouth, and that was even with it cooked medium well!
Of course I had to get the Beef Wellington. It was served with glazed root vegetables, potato purée, red wine demi-glace....and it was everything I had hoped it would be, and more!! The meat was a little on the rare side, but that made it extremely tender and flavorful. The dough casing was thick enough to give it texture and the potato purée was a nice addition to the plate. I know this sounds crazy, but one of the best things on my plate were the glazed root vegetables! You can't really see them in the picture (in the back), but they were phenomenal.
We also ordered sides to go with our meal. Ivan got the Loaded Baked Potato (smoked Gouda béchamel,
sour cream, bacon, chives) and I got the Mac & Cheese (blue, cheddar, parmesan, truffle). By the time we got to the sides, we were really full...but they were so good that we kept on eating! The potato was unlike any other potato Ivan has had. The cheese is what made it really stand out. Same with my mac and cheese. The different types of cheeses complimented each other and set this dish apart from all others.
Even though it was pretty pricey, we both thought that it was worth the money. You can tell it's a Gordon Ramsey restaurant because of the really high standards. All of the servers and workers are extremely friendly, and the atmosphere is great. I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a great food experience in Vegas.
Ivan ended up going back for another slice and found a winner, the white pizza! OMG it was delicious! I totally forgot to take a picture first, so here it is with a bite out of the bottom :)
After going to Gordon Ramsey Steak on the first day, we were pretty excited to find out that he opened 2 other restaurants recently. We were already looking for a burger place, so we decided to check out BURGR by Gordon Ramsey. While we were there, there was a bit of a commotion going on. We looked over and saw that the Miss America contestants were there! They were very gracious and posed for pictures with people. I thought it was pretty funny that they were there one day before the big competition. you would think that they would be eating nothing but salads before the swimsuit competition...I know I would!
We got the Truffle parmesan fries for our appetizer. This was a big pile of cheesy goodness. They were served with homemade ketchup and aioli.
I got Uber Cheese Burger (fontina cheese, racllette cheese, and goat cheese). I think what makes these burgers great is the blend of beef shortrib, brisket, and chuck. This was a great burger!!
Ivan got the Farm Burger (duck breast bacon, English sharp cheddar, and fried egg). He also loved it!
