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

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!!!
our waiter said similar things when we commented on how many times have we seen that made and we finally get to taste it!One of the best meals I’ve ever had. I got to talking to the waiter. He had been there since the opening. I jokingly asked if he’d ever seen GR or met him. He said that GR does surprise pop ins. Will actually sit in the corner of the restaurant and eat during a normal service. He said he is a great guy, but a perfectionist. He said the training was crazy.
thanks mneeley.....oh Very true but Vegas has no shortage of F-Bombs going on.....so certainly didn’t miss it while eating dinner!Wow, quite a meal there at HK! But I don't think it would be the total experience if there wasn't some screaming and F-bombs coming from the kitchen.
Thanks Eddie, much appreciated!awesome...Like!
Thanks Jabiru! The Beef Wellington was an eye and taste catcher for sure. GR sells a Hells Kitchen recipe book for all the dishes and it is on its way to the house as we speak cause we have got some practicing to do at our house....LOLWhat an excellent birthday gift for your son, that meal looks amazing, the beef Wellington really caught my eye.
thanks for sharing.
Warren thanks! Emeril's Fish House would be tasty to! The Boy still hasn't stopped talking about it!Wow I'm late on this. But what a great Birthday treat for your son and for sure a great looking meal. I was treated to a birthday dinner at Emeril's Fish House in Vegas for a wonderful experience.
Vegas is overall has pretty good food, because it helps that folks are depositing money into their cash boxes freely! LOL To me its a bucket list thing so check check!Wanted to go the last couple years during SEMA, but the boss didn't think corporate would ok that expense. Did get taken to Caesar's Buffet the first year we were there though. That was dang good for a boy from farm country Minnesota. May have to talk the wife into it sometime in our travels. Dang that looks good!
Thanks Normanaj! Oh at 21, probably a bill for rent if he is still living at home.....LOL. I'm thinking a fishing/hunting trip that I get to go on! See how that works!Nice!
Curious as to what you'll treat him to on his 21st!
