About now, you’re probably asking yourself: Self, just where does a just-published food critic go for a quick bite after consuming superb French fare at Guy Savoy?
To which ELV’s staff can only say: Why, to Rao’s of course. Downstairs from GS at Caesars Palace, where the spicy and sweet, hot and tangy, winy, chicken and sausage-fest known as Chicken Scarpariello awaits.
Truth be told, the kick of hot and sweet peppers, not to mention hot and sweet sausages, along with savory chicken in a deeply-flavored, vinegar-tinged wine sauce, was just the thing to reawaken our palate after all that fabulous French food.
The jolt of a rustic Italian red, chosen by super-somm John Burke, was another nice touch to end the evening on.
As were the cheesecake(s) — pumpkin and classic — and the peanut butter ice cream chocolate sandwich.
From high-brow French to Italian hominess to over-the-top American desserts…all in one night?
Yep….and you wonder why that white suit keeps getting tighter?
That chicken costs $28.
Just thought you’d like to know.
