Food and Beverage for Wednesday, July 7, 2010

I know I am late in posting these.  My travels back home were a little hectic to say the least.  Who likes to sit on an airplane, that has lost it air conditioning, sitting on the tarmac for an hour and a half? That is after the other delays.  Not me that is for sure.

Enough on my travel woes and onto the food.  And it is the most wonderful food.  For my last evening out I really didn't know what I wanted to eat.  We had not eaten all day and I just knew that I wanted a nice sit down restaurant.  We were going to see Cirque du Soleil's KA at the MGM that night and while we were looking for a place to eat we walked over to the New York New York Hotel and Casino.  I looked up and saw a sign that said Il Fornaio.  There was my decision, Italian food.  They had the cutest plates and stemware.  Each piece had a chef/baker doing various things.  Just like this bread plate.  It obviously has a baker on it.  The wine glass had a Sommelier on it carrying a tray of grapes and wine.

We started off by sharing a caesar's salad.  It wasn't bad but no creamy dressing like I expect.  I ordered Petto di Pollo al Peperoncino.  Which the menu says "Grilled double chicken breast marinated with sage, rosemary, thyme, crushed red pepper, white wine, Dijon mustard and lemon, served with sautéed organic spinach and roasted Yukon Gold potatoes"  I don't like sauteed spinach so I asked for vegetables. 

I ended up with the spinach and had to ask for my veggies.  But our server was very nice about it.  Everything was very tasty!  Especially that red spicy sauce the put on the chicken.  Yummy!
