During our recent culinary adventure to Las Vegas, we enjoyed an especially wonderful date night We had dinner reservations at SW Steakhouse at The Wynn before going to see Cirque du Soleil’s amazing Beatles LOVE show. We arrived at SW Steakhouse and were warmly greeted by the restaurant's General Manager. He seated us at a lovely table directly beside the Lake of Dreams so we’d have perfect views of the light and music show that happens every 30 minutes. What happened next was a meal that was so over-the-top excellent in every way that it earned a solo spotlight for this month’s The Weekend Gourmet Dines Out feature. We sampled some signature items from their extensive menu, everything from appetizers to steak and seafood entrees…to some amazing desserts. Here's a quick sneak peek to whet your appetite!

It was well after midnight by the time we visited the large LOVE gift shop and snapped a few pictures. We headed back to our sweet suite at Vdara to relax and enjoy the nighttime views before we called it a night. We ended our evening admiring the colorful lights of the Strip and lovely views of the Bellagio Fountains! If you find yourself in Las Vegas, we highly recommend that you and your sweetheart enjoy a delicious dinner at The Wynn's SW Steakhouse, followed by Cirque du Soleil's Beatles LOVE show at Mirage. I guarantee you'll have some amazing memories to take back home with you!
