When one goes to Las Vegas, one expects to find a city rife with slot machines, stale cigarette smoke, panhandlers and, well, general debauchery.
One does not expect to find a bustling food scene.
Especially a delicious urban coffee bar that may have the best pour over I've ever had, or one of the best breakfasts I've enjoyed in a long time (I'll miss you, Latin hash).
I've just returned from a week-long trip to Vegas (no gambling for me: boyfriend and I went to see Queen Reba perform at her Caesars residency), and I must say, I'm glad to be out of the sensory-overload experience and back in my own kitchen. Though I admit, I did have a heck of a time eating my way through the city, and I'll be chronicling some of my Vegas wine adventures in the next few weeks.
One night, we were hankering for some French bistro fare and moseyed our way to Mon Ami Gabi at Paris Las Vegas before we saw Jersey Boys (Um, have you seen this? It's disarmingly good!). This Emile Beyer Riesling caught my eye (and not for the usual reasons, mind you; I wanted a Riesling, and this was the only option I saw, so there).
This dry, fruity white is deliciously smooth and boasts lemon notes and a crisp finish.
It would complement seafood or chicken dishes nicely, but I really enjoyed it alongside goat cheese baked with a light tomato sauce and sopped up with a toasted garlic baguette.
