Las Vegas has a little bit of everything. It seems one of the first stops for chefs after their home city. Luckily, Emeril has more than one concept in Sin City from bank-breaking chef’s tables to more reasonable options. Anyone who has set foot in Las Vegas knows that, while drinks are (sometimes) free, it can be an expensive city. For that reason, I was delighted to enjoy a meal at Table 10 in the Palazzo and was pleased that they have a four course meal option for just $48.
After a long evening of shopping (one word: Barney’s) and five (or just one) Coffee Bean Ultimate Iced Blendeds, a relaxing evening at Table 10 was just what the doctor ordered. The staff was incredibly welcoming and the atmosphere was relaxing thanks to the low lighting and dark furniture. I sat in the dining room, but if I ventured in again alone I’d sit at the Food Bar, no question. It gives diners a view of the action in the kitchen and shows just how well the chefs know their craft.
I started my evening with a Lagasse Lemonade (Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, Southern Comfort, vanilla & pomegranate syrups, and fresh lemon juice) when my waiter told me it’s the most popular drink. I enjoyed it, but it was a bit sweet for my taste so I got a bit of club soda to mellow the sweetness. (Win.)
Before ordering dinner, I wanted to be good and prepped, so I ordered an Emeril’s Passion (Emeril’s Eagle Rare bourbon, passion fruit puree, Luxardo liqueur) as my second drink. It packed a punch and, while still nicely sweet, wasn’t overwhelming. It was JUUUUUST drinkable enough.
For dinner, I opted for the four course menu which offered some traditional American dishes from seafood to steak and Pea Ravioli. I started with the seasonal soup, Lobster Bisque with melted truffle butter which was incredibly rich without being overpowered by truffle. My appetizer was the easiest choice I made all night … Candied Farm Bacon served with warm maple syrup cured in a 10 year old bourbon barrel. Seriously … that stuff was unreal. It was all … BAM. (I just had to.)
I was craving steak that day (I mean … I kind of am every day.) so I ordered the 6 Ounce Filet which was served a perfect medium with light vegetables. I was so full so it took every bit of my strength not to stuff myself silly … because I wanted to. Dessert was a tough choice, but I went with the White Chocolate Malassadas coated with cinnamon sugar and filled with white chocolate served with raspberry sauce to accompany my perfectly crafted latte.
Table 10 offers happy hour daily and live music in the bar on weekend nights. Sit in the large bar area for a lively atmosphere or sit in the dining room for a more intimate meal. Table 10 also offers a private dining room with the badass glass that frosts with the touch of a button. (So cool.)
