We ended up busting out our phones to search for nearby places to eat Just across the way from Hell's Kitchen is Caesar's Palace Casino. My husband, Vuong, found Ramsay's Pub & Grill just inside and, to our luck, there was an available reservation on the Open Table app in 15 minutes!! SCORE. So, we walked to our destination as quickly as we could as we were getting hangrier by the second.
Sara was awesome! Her outgoing demeanor immediately put us at ease and her recommendations on drinks and dishes throughout our meal was on point!
For drinks, Vuong wanted something on the stronger side and I wanted something refreshing with a hint of sweetness so she suggested the following:
- HIS: "Danny Boy" - Jameson Irish Whiskey, Orange & Lemon Zest, Simple Syrup, & Aromatic Bitters.
- HERS: "Goodbye Blue Sky" - Stoli Blueberi Vodka, Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur, Fresh Lemon and Blackberries w/ sparkling wine
Once our dishes made their way out to us, the portions weren't too bad at all. They weren't obnoxiously large and, again, just the right amount.
A downside is that he was a bit disappointed that the burger wasn't bigger but only because it was THAT GOOD.
This dish was so good (Sara knew I'd love it) - I cleaned up my plate! It was salted to perfection and the meat was so tender that I didn't really need to use my knife. The shallots (or what it appeared to be) didn't have that sharp onion taste at all...I was even able to eat them whole. This dish was so palatable, I can still remember how it tastes.
Out came the other dessert - a sweet cream ice cream & almond brittle sauce atop a mini chocolate cake. Needless to say, we gobbled this right up. It wasn't too sweet and the cake was solid yet moist. YUM. Such a great way to end our meal!
I'm sure we'll be back and we truly hope Sara - if she'll still be there - is our waitress again!
