Your Most Indulgent Valentine's Day Meals
LAS VEGAS (TheStreet) -- With Valentine's Day fast approaching, TravelsinTaste brings you indulgent dining experiences and gift ideas to make it a day of enchantment:
At The Palazzo in Las Vegas, Lavo offers a sophisticated setting to enjoy dinner with menu items such as Mediterranean king crab salad with roasted beets, mache, citrus, Rose Petal Shaped Pasta with shrimp, asparagus tips, black truffles and a 6-ounce Kobe filet mignon and baked langostino. Its sister restaurant, Tao, has a menu perfect for enjoying under the watch of the restaurant's iconic 20-foot Buddha. Selections include a trio of Shibumi oysters served with blood orange mignonette, pickled fresh turmeric and ginger flowers and a "salt and pepper" stir-fried Maine lobster risotto with crustace sauce.
One of Vegas' sexiest restaurants, Strip House, with its siren red walls and old-world glamour, can provide the perfect spot for a romantic night on the town. Sumptuous selections include Kataifi-wrapped crisp shrimp with chopped avocado, cucumber and flying fish roe; or surf and turf -- an 8-ounce filet mignon and broiled lobster or a 14-ounce bone-in filet. Or travel to the ends of the world without the expensive air fare at Fleur by Hubert Keller, renowned for its small plates from a variety of countries. Couples can have a five-course menu of Keller's delicacies, including Kusshi oysters; jumbo lump crab cake; seared scallop; petite filet; and a chocolate hazelnut bar.
If it's a Valentine's cocktail you desire, stop by Legendary Rao's at Caesars Palace for its delicious Cherry Drop Martini to set the mood. Featuring a romantic blend of Grey Goose Cherry Noir, Cointreau, fresh sour and cane sugar syrup, topped with maraschino cherries and candy hearts, guests will be able to toast to a fabulous evening at Las Vegas' premier Italian restaurant.
