TERRAZA BY CAFÉ AMERICANO at Caesars has opened in Las Vegas

And what a fantastic patio café it is.

In front of Caesars overlooking the tent where the famous Absinthe show performs, this is a great new venue. With plenty of shading, misters and its own 12-seat outside bar, Terraza features 9 ft by 16 ft screens for football viewing, videos, or perhaps a meeting presentation. Walk directly into the patio or go through Café Americano. There are 22 tables, enough to seat 60. 

Terraza features Asian, Tex Mex, Latin, and American food and is open 24 hours a day. We tried shrimp ceviche and short rib tacos, streak roll sliders and calzones, mini steak banh-mi sliders and a quinoa dish. They also serve fries smothered in gravy, curried garbanzo bruschetta, and KFC steamed buns.  Finishing up we had a nutter butter milkshake, always a favorite.

Another newly opened restaurant slotted for Sept. 18 is Graffiti Bao on the west side. Inspired by Asian markets, they will serve lobster bao, Vietnamese crab fried rice, and bone marrow chow fun.

Gordon Ramsay Steak at the Paris is totally remodeling. The new-look will be much lighter, and the menu will add more shellfish and vegetarian dishes.
