Usually most people choose only one restaurant and wonder about all of the ones they missed. Nosh Las Vegas, the Caesars Palace Tour takes visitors to five famous Caesars Palace Restaurants on a food tasting spree.
Indulge your taste buds in some of the best food Caesars Palace Resort offers.
For three exciting hours, you enter the Old Homestead Steakhouse, Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill, Payard Patisserie & Bistro, Beijing Noodle no. 9 and Serendipity #3.
The NOSH Las Vegas Tour introduces you to the chef and others who tell the stories of their restaurant’s food and history.
The first stop, Beijing Noodle no. 9, as the name says, specializes in noodles.
Guests watch the chef demonstrating the traditional way to make noodles by-hand. He prepares the noodles daily.
The group’s tasting included mushroom noodles and dim sum dumplings with pork. Mega-aquariums with goldfish decorate the entrance.
Next Payard Patisserie & Bistro beckoned the group with thoughts of crepes and chocolates. Award winning James Beard Pastry Chef of the Year Francois Payard offers premium chocolates made-by-hand, sculptured by their Maitre Chocolatier.
They began with a demonstration of how to make crepes. Tastings included truffles, chocolates wheel-topped with fruits and nuts along with French macaroon cookies. There were different sections for chocolates, crepes and a bistro.
The Old Homestead Steakhouse served dry-aged steaks in New York since 1868. They surprised us with our entrée, two small strips of steak with a skewer of tater tots.
The recently opened Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill offered casual elegance thought out their dining rooms. Beer kegs lined the front wall to emphasize their beer and wines on tap. We were served beer from the tap and appetizers.
Our fifth stop, Serendipity 3 served several large pizzas.
This afternoon, the tour presented a wide variety of cuisines from some of the best restaurants in Las Vegas.
Each restaurant shined with their own unique specialties. The Nosh Las Vegas Caesars Palace Tour brought guests behind-the-scenes for an opportunity few people can enjoy.
This memorable tour was created by the same people who successfully run Bite San Diego. They called the tour Nosh Las Vegas because most people on the tour don’t feel hungry afterwards. Rebecca Bamberger, Founder of Nosh Las Vegas and Bite San Diego, explained. “Similar to San Diego, Las Vegashas evolved its ulinary scene tremendously in the last decade.”
The Nosh Las Vegas Caesars Palace Tour is scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays from 3-6 p.m. Reservations are required. For information or reservations, call
