Nobhill Tavern

We’ve had a number of outstanding meals over the years in Las Vegas but a recent meal from Nobhill Tavern may be the most memorable dining experience to date. From start to finish, every component was nothing short of perfection.

Starters of pristine fresh water oysters and a seared foie gras were flawless. The foie gras was served with a blood orange garnish and toasted brioche, but it was the skilled seasoning and searing on the outside that caused a moment of temporary blindness. It was,seriously, that good.

Not to be outdone was Scottish salmon cooked as salmon should be cooked, medium rare. Served with a light sauté of fennel, baby leeks and mussels with a tomato saffron broth, the dish was outstanding. The star of the show was the pork belly served with a heavenly truffle puree, duck fat potatoes and an apple frisee salad. The pork was prepared sous-vide until butter-tender then crisped on the outside creating two flawless textures in each succulent bite. We’ve had none better.

Chef Michael Mina is serving some of the finest food on the Las Vegas strip and has matched it with an upscale, but not stuffy ambience at Nobhill. Service was impeccable; our servers were knowledgeable, efficient and very personable, all adding to a top-notch dining experience. Not to be missed are the specialty cocktails coming from the bar. We highly recommend the orange scented Cable Car with it’s dreamy bruléed rim as a perfect starting point for a truly fine dining experience.

Dinner for two including cocktails and wine was under $200.00, a reasonable price for perfection. Reservations are highly recommended, especially for one of the comfy private booths.

    This truly was a great meal… 🙂

  2. Thanks, lvfrankg. I agree about the MGM zoo….the entire property is a mess at the moment. Until the remodeling is complete, the only reason we’ll go there will be for the dining. Totally agree with you about Wolfgang’s & Kraftsteak as well.

    Nice review of a great restaurant. My wife and I were pretty much blown away the first time we went there and it was nice to see them serving Tony Abou-Ganim’s modern classic ‘Cable Car’ as their signature cocktail. It’s a perfect match for the place. Torching the sugar rim is totally cool, too. The MGM is a zoo but NH is only one of my favorite restaurants in there. Wolfgang’s and Kraftsteak are good restaurants, also. TBT, I haven’t eaten at Kraft since Tom Colichio Tea-bagged it by slapping his name above the door but they have one of the coolest bars I’ve ever seen. Nice blog. Thanks for the fun post and pictures..
