My family is back home, in Michigan, after a great trip to Las Vegas. We arrived Sunday, August 4. As I mentioned, my work put us up in the Aria, Monday through Wednesday. We then over to the Palazzo and stayed Thursday through Sunday..Who stays eight days in Vegas? We had a great time. We saw Cirque du Soleil Ka (loved it) and went to the Neon Museum (a highlight of our trip) and saw many other things. It was a wonderful work visit and vacation. I will give you a run-down of all of our restaurant visits. NOTE: I have Celiac Disease as do our daughter and our oldest son, both of whom were with us on the trip. Our son and I are both extremely sensitive. He usually knows when he gets glutened within an hour. My wife has non-Celiac gluten sensitivity and usually knows right away. I am very sensitive but it can take a number of hours for me to know that I've been glutened.
Mon Ami Gabi: Steak Frites for me; Chicken Dinner for my wife; Onion soup for our daughter; chocolate mousse for everyone. The food was incredible and no one got glutened.
Monday: Breakfast for me at the Aria buffet. The chef came out and gave me the grand tour. He was really good and I ate safely. Cucina (Aria) by Wolfgang Puck for dinner: the staff there was exceptional; I don't remember what we all ate but I know that the three of loved our food and no one was glutened.
Tuesday: Aria breakfast buffet for me. No issues. Cucina for lunch with my wife and daughter; great food and no one got glutened. I ate at a work reception catered by the Aria. The food was great. I did not get glutened however they had a mix-up in my food and actually gave me something that had gluten in it but the chef caught it right away. We were in their convention center.
Wednesday: breakfast, lunch, and dinner for me were at the Aria convention center. No problems. My wife and daughter ate at PF Chang's at Planet Hollywood and had no issues.
Thursday: Yardbird Southern Table for late lunch with my wife and daughter. The food was amazing and we did not get glutened. Our son arrived late afternoon. The four of us had dinner at El Segundo Sol. The food was amazing and no one got glutened. None of us ever got glutened the whole trip. So, I'll stop saying that.
Friday: late lunch at Yardbird. We all had the fried chicken, fries, brussels sprouts and sweet tea (same as the previous day). Our son loved it. We were very full and went to Mon Ami Gabi for creme brulee, chocolate mousse, coffee, and wine for a light dinner.
Saturday: Strip Burger for a late lunch. Food was really good. Hecho en Vegas for guacamole and the tomato salad and chips and salsa. We really enjoyed it. It was nice that it was super close to Ka.
Sorry for all of the details. I thought you might appreciate the proof points --> two Celiacs for 8 days; 1 non-Celiac gluten sensitive; 1 Celiac for 3 days. none of us had issues and we all loved our food experiences. We don't have these sorts of options around home. It was a real treat for us.
Thank you for your tips. It really helped.
