What a wonderful lunch Cheryl had planned last Tuesday for Dottie and I to celebrate our September birthdays.
As we arrived at the Paris Hotel and Casino, Dottie and I were still undecided on which restaurant to choose. Mon Ami Gabi? or up, up and away to the top and dine at ~The Eiffel Tower Restaurant~? hmmm.
Alright, enough Virgo analyzing! Cheryl swept us up into the elevator to the top of the tower. As the doors opened to the restaurant we were amazed at one of the most spectacular views in all of Las Vegas.
Our table overlooked the Bellagio's water display. Dottie ew'd and ah'd with each water cascade.
The tables were set with logo red chargers and crystal. Our server, or should I call him our chauffer, escorted us through our dining destination. He was one of the most confident and knowledgeable restaurant persons I have ever met. We only acquired his neim, Steven, by requesting it of him as the server's here won't tell you their names because the dining experience is "all about you". Of course! What were we thinking? LOL
We began with a lobster and crab, to die for, appetizer before we each delighted in a different luncheon entree. Cheryl with a gorgeous, colorful heirloom tomato and mozzarella salad and zee' Filet Mignon. Dottie with a perfectly perched Filet of Trout dish and myself with the Paillard of Chicken (chicken with the H E double toothpicks pounded out of it). Sorry here for all the food photos, but my camera has a fork and knife option and I wanted to see what it would do.
And now for desserts of all desserts and not to say less of the best "Sour Cream Sorbet", but they have the best Crème Brulee ever. Even Dottie's home recipe had to be placed back in it's recipe box. I could eat this everyday for breakfast!
And just when you think you can't put another sweet spoonful of dessert into your mouth, you are served a Happy Birthday chocolate mousse. With whipped cream of course!
I may not parlez francais, but I sure can consume francais!
Great company and wonderful friends.
Thank you so much Cheryl for my birthday treat! xxoo
