Las Vegas: Julian Serrano

Following my birthday dinner at Joel Robuchon at the Mansion, the dining festivities didn't stop there. The next morning/early afternoon, we stopped by Julian Serrano at Aria for a light fare of tapas and paella. We had to eat light because we had a dinner reservation at Restaurant Guy Savoy later that night.

We were the first to arrive and the place seemed larger than expected.

The table setting was simple and modern with deep red and gold hues.

Time to eat!

(left) Traditional Spanish Chicken Croquetas - $8
Chicken, Bechamel

(right) Mediterranean stew in deconstruction - $12
Prawns, bronzinni, sofrito

Mix Paella - $50
Lobster, Chicken, Chorizo, Vegetables, Saffron Rice

The verdict:


Hubs and I appreciated this interpretation of spanish tapas compared to our tasting experience at Saam at the Bazaar. The presence of paella made Hubs give this place a thumbs up. If we didn't plan on dining at Restaurant Guy Savoy, we could have easily ordered 2-3 more tapas as well as dessert. That's the beauty of Vegas, there's always a reason to come back. Plus, where else in the world could you win your way to a fabulous meal.
