Yusho Asian Grill
DESCRIPTION: At the re-imagined entrance to Monte Carlo Casino Resort, Yusho exemplifies the latest Grill & Ramen trend that’s popular on both coasts. When you enter, a colorful walk by the open kitchen stimulates taste buds en route to your table. Once seated, permit Kibo sake to whet the palate, then taste a small cup of Pea Crab Soup. If you love it as much as we did, you’ll order a 3rd cup. It features a compact menu on one page. Though Spanish Octopus and Mango Mochi are acquired tastes, any of these grilled items, Wild Salmon, Wagyu Ribeye Steak, Duck Breast with mushrooms, Spicy Tuna Taco, and Lamb Skewers with coconut & 7 Chinese spices are unapologetically delicious. On the Ramen side, the Spicy Shrimp Ramen and Mushroom Ramen dance with exotic flavor as well. Feel free to order extra ramen. The mint chocolate ice cream and banana caramel ice cream cap off a wonderful evening of casual dining with attentive Wait Staff. The modest-price mixed-drinks are inventive without crippling your wallet.

Eiffel Tower Restaurant
DESCRIPTION: As you enter the front of Paris Las Vegas, look for the Eiffel Tower Restaurant Elevator. After boarding through its glass doors, the brisk elevator ride delivers incredible views of The Strip. At this dining palace, gentlemen wear a dinner jacket. If you forget, ask the cheerful waitstaff to loan you a jacket and tip them. Window seating with views of the Bellagio Fountain show and Paris balloon are required for the full fantasy of place. Since window seating is treasured, make this dining reservation 1 minute after booking your Las Vegas flight. Sparkling glasses, polished silverware, a superlative French menu, exquisite multi-grain breads, and senior waiters who anticipate your every wish meet expectations for a 5-star restaurant. If you are not in the mood to dine, you can always request the tour and purchase a cocktail while enjoying the view.
CUISINE: The artichoke lyonnaise, poached egg, frisee, fois gras and heirloom tomato starters hint of what’s to come; taste the warm lobster salad, sweet corn, chanterelles, braised leeks and tomato confit where the full artistry of chef Joho blossoms; his pasta croquette, smoked salmon and brioche resonate with flavor; seared sea scallops, roasted onions and garlic mousseline taste like a French Impressionist painting looks — complex and extraordinary.

DESCRIPTION: Compared to other top steakhouses, Michael Mina’s newest restaurant in Vegas marks new territory in design and presentation with dramatic lighting, complimented with a brown metal look that nicely accents fully exposed, glass-enclosed beef racks and an eye level view the hard-working chefs. It may be impossible to choose an under performer from the menu. I had the rib eye steak cooked to perfection. The beef tartar of Angus Beef, capers, grain mustard and other ingredients was impeccable. The crab cake appetizer was small by Maryland standards, but nonetheless flavorful. The Madagascar Creme Brulee was so good, if I were having a last supper, I’d pray this was on the menu.
