Dining in the Wynn

On Tuesday in Vegas we got dressed up, and went out for a nice lunch to Red 8, an Asian eatery in the Wynn.

I had the braised beef brisket noodle soup, and Christopher had the dan dan noodles with pork.

We both thought our dishes were just alright; they were lacking a little in the flavour department.

For a later dinner in the evening, we went to Lakeside, also in the Wynn.  We had an incredible view of the "Lake of Dreams".

The house-made bread that the server brought out was really good.

We shared a seafood platter (jumbo shrimp, oysters, king crab legs, Maine lobster tail), as well as some truffle creamed spinach, and lobster mac and cheese.

I seem to have a talent for finding the richest dishes on the menu ... we couldn't finish this meal, and it got to be a little much for us with how rich the dishes were.  Also, we decided we much prefer our crab and lobster warm with melted butter, instead of chilled - we were a bit disappointed. 

These weren't our favourite meals, but we still had a wonderful day.

When was the last time you were disappointed with a restaurant meal?  Where was it at?

Hmmm, the last meal I ate out that I was disappointed at was probably a fast casual Mediterranean place but I am blanking on the name! That is too bad that the two meals you had that day weren't great but I'm glad you guys still had fun!
