Todd English’s Olives ain’t that bad
3600 Las Vegas Blvd S
Las Vegas NV
Given the chance to eat a fancy restaurant in Bellagio for cheap, I jumped at it! Yaye for restaurant week by threesquared.org.
The prix fixe combo I chose….
1. Ham and Cheese arancini – nice crunchy breaded shell with warm oozy cheese and ham.
2. A take on a BLT + Salmon – This consisted of two slices of thick cut bacon, baby spinach salad, toasted roll, salmon (slightly overcooked) + tangy tartar sauce. When I carefully constructed my bite to include every component, it was a very nice combo. BACON!
3. Drunk Dark Chocolate Trifle – A dark chocolate cookie and creamy vanilla icecream. Good but not as good as….
4. Banana Foster Cake – This is what I should’ve goten -Slight taste of liquor in moist cake + carmelized bananas.
Conclusion: Prix fixe was good, but not impressive. I think Olive’s has more to offer outside of the prix fixe because our friend’s food outside of the prix fixe was supposedly excellent. Shall we go back? hmmmm
