This is for a 2015 Las Vegas trip including Bacchanal Buffet, Bouchon Bakery, Heart Attack Grill, Serendipity 3, Rao's Las Vegas, Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill, & Mesa Grill.
After checking-in at Caesars, the GF's family and I was hungry for some lunch. We were all in the mood for some simple pub fare so after stepping off the elevators, we went straight to Gordon Ramsay's Pub & Grill.
It seems to be the perfect venue for sports fans as there were a myriad of TVs around the surrounding bar and dining room, with plenty of soccer (excuse me, "football") fans watching what seemed to be a fairly important match. Color me clueless because I can't watch a sport that doesn't count down to the end of a match or doesn't always end with a winner. But on to the food!
Warm Salty Pretzels [$8 / $7 Total Rewards]
Innis & Gunn Beer-Cheddar sauce, English granary mustard
Make sure you get a Total Rewards card from Caesars because you get a dollar knocked off most menu items. We started off with the pretzels, which came warm and salty indeed. But fair warning, you only get three! The accompanying beer-cheddar sauce was nicely sharp with depth from the beer. The English granary mustard was great, with a sinus-clearing horseradish kick that was highly reminiscent of my favorite Holman's.Dublin Corned Beef Brisket Sandwich [$18 / $17 Total Rewards]
Dark caraway rye, Gruyere cheese, sauerkraut, pickled onion and cucumber dressing
The corned beef brisket sandwich featured great rye, with a nice heft of corned beef brisket that was balanced by the tangy sauerkraut and pickled onion and cucumber dressing within. The Guyere imparted a nice nuttiness that melded the flavors together nicely.
Yorkshire Ale Batter Fish & Chips [$30 / $29 Total Rewards]
Cod, fresh dill tartar sauce, minted mushy peas, lemon
The fish and chips featured moist and flaky cod without its skin (luckily for the GF). The batter was crisp and light. The thick steak fried were not crisp, but came with more of a roasted texture. The minted mushy peas were light on mint and were a bit watery.
Grilled Lamb Burger [$21 / $20 Total Rewards]
8 oz, caramelized onions, goat cheese-feta spread, rosemary brioche bun
I went with the stellar lamb burger, which was cooked to a nice medium and housed within a perfectly proportioned brioche bun. The grassiness of the lamb was accented by the goat-cheese and feta spread, with the caramelized onions adding a nice richness to each bite.
So if you're looking to indulge in proper gastropub fare while watching a game with some friends, Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill will set you right.
