CraftSteak at the MGM Grand Resort

Angela, her mother Theresa, and I ate at Tom Colicchio’s CraftSteak last night at the MGM Grand in celebration of Angela’s birthday. Angela and I agree that it is definitely the best place we’ve eaten at in Las Vegas. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the experience was great. We would definitely go back for another special occasion.

After sitting down and getting the lay of the land, Angela and her mom ordered drinks. Angela ordered a raspberry martini and Theresa opted for a glass of Merlot. I was told both were delicious.

After procuring the drinks, it was time for our starters. Angela and Theresa opted for lobster bisque and I chose the Caesar salad. The bisque was actually poured at the table over chilled lobster. I thought that was a nice touch. My Caesar came with pickled anchovies on top. They weren’t the best thing in the world, but it was nice to try them.

For our main course, Angela and I split the 32 oz. porterhouse (medium rare) and Theresa got the surf and turf, which consisted of scallops and a 6 oz. filet (medium). We shared three sides: potato puree with olive oil and chives, mushroom assortment with four different kinds of mushrooms, and roasted asparagus. We also got delicious rolls which melted in your mouth. They were probably the best rolls I’ve ever had.

Everything was amazing. Gaze upon the delicious meal:

We were almost too full for dessert, but I just couldn’t resist the deliciousness that chocolate souffle promised. Theresa had a cup of coffee and Angela got a fancy little birthday desert with yogurt and berries.

So, to summarize. Everything at CraftSteak is delicious. We highly recommend you go there if you can. We had a great night out celebrating Angela’s birthday, and I’ll leave you with this awesome picture of us.
