Bucket List: Vegas

I watch a lot of TV Food Network (I'm sure you are shocked).  Of my favorite shows, I'm most addicted to The Best Thing I Ever Ate — probably because I am often asked for eatery recommendations myself.  And so, I share with you a personal challenge: to eat my way through this "Best Thing..." list and then blog about it.

First stop: China Poblano, run by my favorite chef, José Andrés.  It's all tacos and noodles, something that could be horrible except that it's not, because José is a genius.

The Full Bucket List  
• China poblano @ The Cosmopolitan: 20 vegetable fried rice
• SW Steakhouse @ Wynn: chile-rubbed double ribeye
• Rao's @ Caesar's Palace: chicken scarpariello
• Mesa grill @ Caesar's Palace: shrimp & roasted garlic tamale
• Tao @ The Venetian: chilean seabass satay
• RM Seafood @ Mandalay Bay: catfish sloppy joe
• L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon @ MGM Grand: langoustine fritter
• Lotus of Siam (off strip): Nam Prik Ong (thai pork & chile dip)

BTW — if any of you should beat me to these, comment here!

Mesa is on the "okay" list. Decent but didn't live up to the hype.
