The Best Thing I Ever Ate

I LOVE Food.

Some people might call me a food snob. I don't see myself as one simply because as much as I love truffled goose liver with gold shavings (made-up item), I equally love Doritos (not a made up item). I understand there is a difference between the two, but I can't help but enjoy the junk. That being said, the best meals always consist of a little effort being put forth. In this case the effort wasn't mine, but that of PRIME in Las Vegas.

Prime is a swanky steakhouse. While in Vegas for my fabulous birthday celebration (more on that later) one of the nights the crew decided to eat at PRIME. One of the other birthday girls had eaten there before and claimed it was fabulous. She did not disappoint.

Prime is located in the Bellagio hotel overlooking the dancing waters. Ya'll... we sat on the patio, overlooking the water (and occasionally getting a misting from the dancing waters).

This is right before our meal standing in front of the signage. Yes, those ARE tiaras. 

This is the view from the table. Yep, that's the Eiffel Tower in the background, along with dancing waters. 

This isn't the best picture of the three of us, but it's the birthday girls! 

So I wish I had taken pictures of our food, but I didn't cause I was too anxious to get it in my mouth (twss). 
Three other girls and myself split a bottle of wine, 3 (different) steaks, 3 appetizers, and 4 sides. We call it musical plating. I LOVE when I can share food cause I love trying as many things as possible. 
Our menu was: 

1 Bottle of blended red wine (Sarah ordered it so I cant even give specifics)

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp
Market Tomatoes, Burrata Cheese, Mussini Balsamic & Basil Salad
Roasted Baby Beets, Yogurt, Crispy Shallots & Fresh Herbs Salad - SO GOOD

Caramelized Brussels Sprouts with Quince & Bacon - YES YES YES!
Ginger Sweet Potatoes
Chickpea Fries
Gratin Dauphinois with Comté Cheese

Bone in Filet
Regular Filet

I suppose what all this is getting at, is that if you are in Vegas, you NEED to eat here, otherwise the terrorists win.
