24/7 Venetian

It was the beginning of a new year and a new birthday for me when Mother of Food and I decided to take a look at the newest resort and casino in Las Vegas the Palazzo. It hadn’t officially opened and there were no guests staying there yet, but the casino and some shops were open. The Palazzo is beautiful and connected to the Venetian by an indoor walkway. So when we realized there were no restaurants open we decided to walk over to the Venetian and lunch at the GRAND LUX CAFÉ. GLC is owned by the same company as the Cheesecake Factory and is one of my favorite 24/7 cafes (refer to post 24/7 of 9/28/07). Before I could finish this post Son of Food, Daughter-in-Law of Food and Grandson Of Food came for a visit. Now it takes MoF and me a week to get ready for the visit, a week for the pleasure of the visit and a week to recover from the visit, I am just finishing this review.

GRAND LUX CAFÉ is huge, the menu is huge and the portions are huge. The food is always good, the service energetic and friendly and just a fun place to eat. The restaurant’s décor is somewhat eclectic with many different rooms and a patio that extends into the casino. You can order appetizers, eggs and omelets, oven baked pizzas, salads, burgers and sandwiches, pastas, steaks, fish, chicken and so much more (did I say huge menu) and what about desserts.Order a couple for the table and share.

Mother of Food had a large seafood salad (took us three days to finish) and I had a short rib sloppy Joe. For an appetizer we split an order of double stuffed potato spring rolls. I had this once before and wanted to see if they were as good as I remembered. - They were better!

When Son of Food and family were here we tried the new GLC at the Palazzo same good food but the tables are too close for my taste.

In a future post I will write about some of the dinners we had during the visit.

I liked my Grand Lux club sandwich at the Palazzo, but next time I'm ordering what the guy at the next table ordered--the Kobe beef hot dog(s).
