You know it’s a bad sign when your mom tells you she didn’t read your last post because it was too long. Sounds like it’s time for a shorty. Perfectly timed since there is no way, shape, or form I could adequately do justice to my final meal in Las Vegas. I can sum of the dinner in one sentence: It was, by far, the best meal I have ever eaten in my entire life.
I ate at Bar Charlie, a Charlie Trotter restaurant located within Restaurant Charlie at the Palazzo Hotel. The simplicity of the space is as follows: 18 seats outlining a sushi bar. The cuisine (as stated on the website) is, ‘a “kaiseki” or multi course Japanese dinner in that the primary menu offerings are small plates of varied ingredients which are prepared right before your eyes!’
As you can see, the food is a work of art. I watched with wide, disbelieving eyes as the chefs created each plate with skill levels and creativity that I have never been privy to see firsthand. The tasting menus are constantly changing, which is why I don’t have the dish descriptions 6 months later. I won’t attempt to detail any aspect of the meal, but I will say with as much sincerity and heart that I can muster up: Go to Bar Charlie. Talk to the chef. Watch with amazement. Make your culinary dreams become a reality.
