Wow. My lack of blogging has clearly drained my creativity level on post titles…I’ll try to work on that…
The reason I have not blogged in so long (especially after those last three….I was really on a roll!) is not because I could not think of things to ramble on about, on the contrary, almost every day I see or read something and think, I could make a post about this….but then…I just seem to get busy. On my life list of priorities, this blog has not been super high lately!
But this is about food. And I cannot resist telling y`all about delicious food! (Not to mention I can’t get back to sleep and it is 7am on a Sunday…)
Restaurant Week Las Vegas happens once a year (I think) and gives restaurants in the Vegas community the opportunity to give back through the culinary arts. Participating restaurants create menus for breakfast, lunch or dinner and select a donation of $4, $5, or $6 for each meal sold. These participating restaurants are not your run of the mill Chili’s and TGIF’s (no offense, I love Chillis too…). They are the best of the best restaurants in Vegas (aka mostly on the Strip). You know, the restaurant’s you can’t go to on a date for under 100$…and that is only with two entrees. So Restaurant Week provides you a 3 course meal for either 30$, 40$, or 50$. So yes, you may still end up with that 100$ bill….but you are getting a bit more food…and you can tell yourself that you are also doing a good deed as some of your money is going to charity (double win.)
My mother coming to town was the perfect reason so launch myself into Restaurant Week. She was no sooner scooped up from the airport before I took her to the first restaurant, Marche Bacchus (menu here).
This really was a beautiful location right on the water and off the Strip.
I had the Charred Octopus, Chickpeas, Olive, Tomatoes, Lemon Sherry Butter Sauce
