On a bit of a whim, I decided to drop into Caesar’s and grab dinner. It has been some time and, at first, I had trouble deciding which venue to rest my heels. Alas, I chose Spago.
Dining alone, I was offered a seat at the very outer rail affording great people watching. The wait was very brief which was a surprise as the restaurant was very busy and I did not have a reservation; welcoming staff that even went as far as to correct my disheveled lapel.
On the patio, the seating is a bit crowded for egress and passage but ample for movement. I chose the Soup du Jour and Cascerecci Pasta à la Bolognaise as an entrée. The soup texture was rather thick and hot but very, very flavorful; spicy a bit. I do not recommend this to
everyone, yet those that enjoy a bit of “heat” and a flavor reminiscent of Jambalaya will be very satisfied. The Cascerecci Pasta à la Bolognaise was very good – not outstanding, but very good. The sauce didn’t bore or excite and the pasta was cooked just right, but didn’t “wow.” I didn’t catch the Garlic, I did, however, enjoy the Braised Beef – and the Ricotta Cheese was most pronounced and flavorful of all with each mouthful.
I’m very satisfied with dinner and actually can think of no detractions. I suppose it’s rare to dine and the venue hit a mark where you are without comment beyond a great meal without incident. I must say the view, a meal that meets exact expectations, and a dialed-in professional staff is a surprise.
A new standby has been located as the culinary fare is predictable and the view is worth every dollar.
