Have I mentioned my trip to Vegas yet? No? Well this past February, my executive sous chef Matthew and I escaped the wet of Seattle for a few fabulous days in Las Vagas for the Annual Nightclub and Bar Magazine Convention. During the day Matthew and I went about our business delivering lectures, and shaking up some cocktail magic. But at night, we had some fun!
Tao is a fantastic restaurant/night club/lounge/and beach lounge rolled into one, and for my second time visiting, I loved it as much as the first. The pan-Asian bistro is super sexy, low lights, great people watching and a 20 foot Buddha make for a va va voom atmosphere. Celebrity sightings are one reason to come, but we couldn’t resist dining at the top grossing restaurant in the country. No joke. Tao brought in $55.2 million smackers in 2007. H-O-L-Y C-OW! Mathew and I shared a fab dinner with such tasty dishes as Yuzu Roasted Shishito Peppers, Lacquered Roast Fillet of Pork for starters and Miso Glazed Chilean Sea Bass with Wok Vegetables and Sake Braised Shiitake Mushrooms-yum! If you haven’t been and are planning a trip to Vegas in the near future be sure to check Tao out.
