Vegas (mini) Report: Bradley Ogden
So we decided to solve our problem of "too many restaurants, too little time" by doing some grazing between restaurants. We'd long heard about Bradley Ogden's burger and twice-baked blue cheese souffle, so we went in to try those.
Worth a special trip:
* Yep, that twice-baked blue cheese souffle has entered our Food Hall of Fame. It's a tiny, perfect serving. It comes along with beautifully-prepared pears, some pear puree, some crumbled blue cheese and candied walnuts.
*The corn bread
*Cherry Limeaid cocktail - nice enough.
* Burger - the meat on the burger is a very good, nicely seasoned burger. It's kind of the epitome of what a standard burger should be. Definitely solid, perfectly prepared. Comes along with some very nice fries. If you're looking for an imaginative burger, go elsewhere. But if you're looking for solid classic, this fits the bill.
*Amuse bouche was foie gras on brioche with vanilla gastrique and persimmon gelee. Wasn't anything revelatory.
*Caesar Salad. This is billed as their signature caesar salad, so we figured we'd give it a go. It was a remarkably common caesar salad to be billed as a signature dish....
*Las Vegas Heat cocktail - chipotle flavor. Meh.

Unfortunately tableside cesar is almost non-existant. I do have the real recipe that was passed to me from my mother-inlaw who got it from the brown derby... so im pretty spoiled in that regard. To me, I only eat the caesar at Sinatra's(i think they list it as a creamy lemon vinagarette), or Boa steakhouse since they do tableside and I can tell them to leave out the tabasco and red wine vinegar.

Hi - we ate in the restaurant. When we checked in, I explained to the host that we wanted the burger (on the bar menu) and the souffle (on the restaurant menu) and asked him where he'd like us to go. (It was a little slow that evening, so I suppose they didn't mind bending the rules by bringing the burger to the dining room.) The service was excellent, atmosphere was quiet. (But a lot of the strip was quiet last week.)
