I attended the opening of The Las Vegas Yacht Club at TI (formerly Treasure Island ) last night. They featured market fresh catches of the day, pan roasts, steamed clams, oysters in the shell, whole Maine lobster, clam bakes for two as well as seafood salads, pastas, and fried calamari, to name a few. This was the night before the grand opening and we had fantastic samples of everything, thanks to Greenspun Media group. The starting cocktails of a Mai Tai or a Mojito quickly hit the spot, and the wine list was filled with plenty to pick from. If you are into yachting, or would like to be, the magnificent decorations adorning the room is great fun.
Being that I owned a seafood restaurant on the wharf in San Diego for many years, I felt right at home. It has an open kitchen concept with the door wide open enough so that you can view the cooking.
The clam chowder was to die for, and the mac and cheese with lobster was terrific. We had a little taste of delicious shrimp dishes, great service, and wonderful sounds. Every morsel of the seafood was fresh and delicious. There is an open area bar overlooking the casino. Matt West is the director and our head chef was Lonnie Hana. Great job guys! And TI is one of the only hotels left on the strip that doesn’t charge for parking.
