Ed and I were in Las Vegas recently for a leads generation conference and had to try Michael Mina’s Nob Hill Tavern. We had been to Michael Mina’s restaurants in San Francisco and also in Las Vegas before, but none with the name Nob Hill, so had to try it. Mina hasn’t missed a beat with his menu and wine list. We had a delicious appetizer of paper-thin eggplant and zucchini slices – think delicate potato chips – paired with tzatziki (a Greek yogurt, cucumber and garlic dip), and a melt-in-your mouth wood-fired filet mignon and butter-poached Maine lobster – all paired with great Patz and Hall pinot. We topped off the yummy dinner with a crunchy, yet smooth, crème brulee. Michael Mina’s restaurants are never a gamble.
