Rick and I decided to go on a last minute trip to Vegas today! Our adventure started with strolling down the Strip and we entered the Bellagio to get some yummy pastries at Jean Phillippe's place. The main feature of the little cove of a restaurant is the world's largest chocolate fountain. I didn't get a great shot of the chocolate fountain, but if you visit the website, there's a much better photo.I completely forgot the name of the pastry we ordered, but it had brunoised mango atop a coconut cookie tucked in white chocolate mousse encapsulated with a velvety white chocolate shell. It was a Valentine's special. Gorgeous!
We entered the Venetian mall after both of us crossed a river of rainwater and soaked our shoes and socks. We decided to eat at Postrio after a quick cross reference on Yelp!. We devoured the country white bread (perfectly crusty and tender) that was served with a flavorful tapenade. I ordered the mushroom tortollini in cream sauce and he ordered the lasagna. Both were heavenly and the portion size was perfect! The food was so good that we completely forgot about how miserable we were just half an hour earlier. This is what it looked like on the "patio" which was actually indoors:
