So the wife was struggling on what to get our soon to be 18 year old........but she got this thought to have a crazy food experience.....so she made reservations at Hells Kitchen in Vegas!

We had high hopes it would be good but we had no idea how good it would be.....

Starting with the Heirloom Tomato Burratta salad!

Next up was a couple of apps.....lobster risotto and scallops.

my wife is NOT a seafood fan and even tried both.......

The main dishes we had (he only has 5 on the menu) were the beef Wellington, crispy skin salmon, and dry aged NY

The evening finished off with sticky toffee pudding and peanut butter fudge cheese cake.

All I can say is I have to hand it to my wife for finding the perfect gift for a foody kid for the big deal 18 B-day!

As a family we have watched a lot of GR and always thought we was a little over the top, but after the indescribable food flavor experience we all just had,....we have concluded that he knows how to do it right. We have eaten at some pretty high end places and this is simply the best food tasting experience we have ever had!!! I only dream of coming close to creating food with this kind of flavor!!!

Thanks Al, it was one of those moments when you take the first bite and you realize you are going to have a WOW experience! If you have seen the 100 foot journey movie....just one bite and you knew!

Kristine one of the winners runs it for him and she is one of our fav winners for sure! It is a bucket like item in my book.

Yup it’s a actual restaurant in Vegas. We aren't really the Vegas types except the food side, but It was/is the perfect time to go cause it’s not crazy busy with all the stuff going on....

That's a hell of a spread, and looks fantastic. What a great way to celebrate his 18th.

Point for sure

My recorder set record anything Gordon Ramsey. I wish he would do the F word again. I like the calm GR better.

Ryan, it was pretty crazy and memorable. The boy and me have been talking about beef welly for years and to finally have it was mind blowing. By the way it was hands down the best and most tender filet in my life!

Thanks Chris! The boy could not stop talking about it on the drive to Vegas. After wards he didn’t say much other than there are just no words.....no words......watching the look on his face when he took the first bite was priceless!!!

We have watched all his stuff. We really like the cooking for his family show cause that’s something our family can really relate too!

That was a most excellent B-Day Gift. I had no idea that even existed. Everything looked amazing, especially those Scallops, my most favorite seafood.
Forty years ago, for my 18th, my Aunt had my family and a few friends to her house. She hired a Pro Chinese Banquet Chef to prepare our meal. 6 courses making up the greatest Cantonese Food I have ever Seen or Eaten!...JJ

Curious as to what it $ cost for you guys to eat there?
Weber, the welly was a package deal, salad, welly (& salmon), and desert was 75. So all in with apps was 375 plus tip.

JJ , thanks! The scallops were amazing! I understand know why GR smashes the screwed up ones on the show. That’s a travesty!

Your 18th was totally awesome.....my kids just read that and said oh mom and sad that is how to top HK hint hint....lol.
