My family and I were guests at Brio Tuscan Grille (Town Square location) in Las Vegas recently. It worked out that we were there on my daughter's 21st birthday. In all honesty, it was an incredible experience.
Brio is located just south of the Strip. We boarded the Deuce (a double decker bus that covers the Las Vegas Strip) and took the Town Square stop. Brio is located about ⅔ of the way into the shopping center. Walking into the dining area, we were greeted by friendly staff and ushered to our seat. The dining room is light, airy, and inviting.
After being seated, we were brought a basket of bread. The triangle pieces you see (below) is a flatbread that you really should try - it's deliciously addictive.
Birthdays are always special. Since we were marking an exciting 21st in Vegas, we started off lunch by ordering my daughter a Peach Bellini. She was in love with the fruity cocktail at first sip.
My husband and I both ordered the Mezza Chicken Limone, pictured below with Executive Chef Cesar Herrera. The portion size was more than generous, the chicken was juicy, and overall it was a very good dish.
My son ordered the soup of the day (a minestrone, I believe) and my daughter ordered the Lobster Bisque. (I heard her say numerous times on our trip that she wanted to go back and have the bisque again.)
After thoroughly enjoying our meal, we indulged in a little dessert.
No birthday is complete without a little (cheese)cake with a candle on top, right?
My son had gelato and my husband and I had Creme Brulee. The creme brulee had a thin layer of crunchy caramelized sugar and a creamy center. The portion size was just right for the ending of a great meal.
Though it is not directly in the midst of all of the action on the Strip, Brio is worth the short ride. We will definitely go there again the next time we are in Las Vegas.
