For our first anniversary, we decided not to do gifts because we choose to have a lot more experiences and try new things. Going to this Michelin rated restaurant for our anniversary dinner was definitely a nice experience and a box I wanted to check while we still lived in Vegas.

Designed to emulate the menu of his Paris restaurant, the Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace menu includes many “classic Savoy” dishes like the recommended Soupe d’artichaut à la truffe noire, brioche feuillellée aux champignons et truffles (Artichoke and black truffle soup with toasted mushroom brioche and black truffle butter….but doesn’t it sound fancier in french?)
They start by bringing you out some amuse-bouche – aka a couple small bites (literally, a bite). This little corn soup with chestnut chips was amazing and when you finished the soup and lifted it up, this delicate beet blossom was underneath.
We started with a glass of Varnier Fanniere Grand Cru Rose which was really delicious. It had a unique depth of flavor I have never had in a champagne before. I don’t know much about champagne to be honest, and we never really love it, we just decided to go for it because of the night and because of the extravagant champagne cart they brought it out on. So glad we did, it was just delicious. I may try and find another bottle.
Oh and the wine list? Yah…it was a wine BOOK! Even had it’s own book stand!
They split the Artichoke and Black Truffle soup between the two of us, it was so delicious. That black truffle butter on the bread too? Insane. The table also had butter and really good salt and pepper. I could have eaten all the bread in the world with that butter and salt sprinkled over it. It’s amazing the difference a good quality salt can make.
I had the Dover Sole which was probably the best cooked fish I have ever had. They bring the whole fish out to you to present it after it has been cooked but before they de-bone it and plate it. I thought that was cool and odd all at the same time. I wish it had a bit more eggplant though! Shai, who does not love seafood, was not a fan.
He ordered the Prime Beef Tenderloin with Braised Paleron. It was so delicious. We were pretty skeptical going into the dinner that the entrees would not be big enough and we would be heading to In-n-Out after, but neither of us were able to finish our meals! Shai’s also came with a side of the best mashed potatoes I had ever eaten in my life.
We were too full to order dessert but our waitress brought us out this Quince and Apple for our anniversary. It was a combination of apple glee, apple sorbet in the shape of a baby apple, and some super fresh apple-ball type thing. Sorry that was such a crude description but they don’t explain it on the menu and I don’t remember what she said!
It was a really nice dinner and experience to have.
