New Restaurant, yay! - GIADA

by Linda Lee


Being HQ'd in Las Vegas has great perks! So many restaurants, shows, and shopping!! I recently went to eat at a new restaurant called Giada which is a Giada De Laurentiis restaurant. So exciting! I wanted to order EVERYTHING!! So I did my best to narrow it down to the things I believed I would love the most... I definitely must return to order the other half of the menu. Scroll down to see my journey to my food coma! 

But first... A selfie! Off to dinner in my YSL Tributes, my One Teaspoon shorts, my CHAMPAGNE SIL VOUS PLAIT Daydreamer muscle tank, my Iro tweed jacket, vintage Chanel bling bling for ling ling, and my beat up Prada bag. Definitely dressed to inhale this evening!

Mmmm, fried zuchini strings in what I swear was a garlic batter. Vampires, beware.

28 ounce Bone in Tuscan Rib Eye, totally just drooled on myself (again)... It is finished with lemon and a fried sunny side up egg! Anything with an egg on top, I'm sold! THIS was my FAVORITE dish! And I will be back for this! Nom Nom.
