Welcome to My Food Blog!

Hi, it's Christine. Dinner Table Chronicles is my first blog detailing my food experiences all over town and during our family's travels. First off, I must confess that I'm a terrible photographer, so my food pics may not look so terrific. Even worse, sometimes the restaurant lighting is a bit dim and my iPhone does not take the best pics in "ambience" lighting. But I do hope to improve over time. So do bear with some of my fuzzy pics as we take you along on our food journey.

Las Vegas - Dinner at Wynn

We spent our afternoon walking around and built up an appetite. We decided to end the day at the Wynn, by treating ourselves to their buffet and gambling in their casino. We've eaten at the buffet here before, so we knew what to expect. What we didn't expect was their "New Year's holiday pricing" (since it was Jan. 2). After our cheap lunch, we had to pay a shocking $52 pp for dinner. Yikes! Well, you only live once, so in we went and tried not to think about it. But, let me tell you, it was soooooo worth it.

Started with the lobster bisque.

I'm not even going to try to explain too much. Let the pictures do the talking.
These were our cold plates with different kinds of salads. On the second plate, that is grilled sea bass (the one with the grill marks).

Our entree plates with prime rib (husband's preference) and rack of lamb (my preference).

Alaskan King crab legs, shrimp, and edamame.

Dessert time. Chocolate mousse, creme brulee, mango-lychee tapioca pudding, pineapple slices, bread pudding with a whiskey sauce.

On this dessert plate: Pineapple sliver, mango-lychee tapioca pudding, bread pudding with the whiskey sauce, profiterole, blueberry crepe.
The standouts of the night were the rack of lamb with mint sauce, lobster bisque, the profiterole, and the mango-lychee tapioca pudding. Most disappointing was the grilled sea bass. I love fish, especially sea bass, and it was overcooked.
