We’re gonna let Sam DeMarco and his troops get their footing before launching into a full review of his food at FIRST FOOD AND BAR. But for the time being, here are some tasty snaps of the menu — brought to you by the guy who practically invented the notion of gourmet bar food.
If any of you remember Sam’s American in the Jordan Mosher-designed space in the Bellagio back in 1998-2000 (where FIX now resides), you’ll know how Sammy D. can make mundane recipes sing with a fusion tweak here (mojito lamb chops anyone?) or a crazy and compelling presentation there (a nice vertical stack of fresh fried doughnuts, straight from the oil).
FIRST is located down a hallway, beside the Barney’s Department Store, at the end of the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian where the gondolas pick up and drop off people outside of the Godiva Chocolate Shop.
In other words, finding it can be challenging.
Let’s hope enough people do so we can avoid losing Sammy D. a second time.
All that being said, we must tell you that Claire (D.O.B. 1-12-95, The Official Daughter Of Tom and Stephanie — he, The Official Best Friend Of ELV since 1965) really enjoyed her chocolate chip ice cream cookies.
