Eating Las Vegas isn’t too sure about José Andres’ Chinese/Mexican concept opening soon in the Cosmo, but is looking forward to a branch of Jaleo (if only to see if an absentee chef can bring the thunder like a stay-at-home one).
So, until those newbies prove themselves, there’s no improving on stay-at-home Julian Serrano’s top flight tapas…and there’s definitely no way to beat his de-contructed Mediterranean fish stew — a mélange (ELV loves him his mélanges), of fish and shellfish, artfully arranged and skirted by a fumet of fish, chile and chive oils that accent, without overwhelming, the pristine flavors of the sea.
It goes great with a salty Manzanilla or Fino sherry (or whatever white wine Desi Echavarrie suggests) and costs $14.
That’s right…$14 for a plate of impeccable piscatorial perfection.
Just thought you’d like to know.
