WE LIKE TO eat here at the SC Blog.
With dozens of some of the best restaurants in Las Vegas at Station Casinos, we have plenty of opportunities to put our mouth where the good food is. We also have some of the best chefs in town. With so many culinary resources at our disposal, we got a hankerin’ for a series of Blog posts highlighting our many dining delights.
But, where to start? Well, we’re starting at the beginning of the meal. Here’s ten of the best appetizers in Las Vegas – hand-selected by our expert epicureans – at ten of our fabulous Vegas restaurants. Bon Appétit…
App No. 1: Crab Cakes
Where: Tbones Chophouse at Red Rock
Chef Joseph’s Comment: We start with with jumbo lump crab meat, some of the best crab meat on the market. By lightly pan-frying the crab cake with clarified butter, we create a thin golden brown crust that traps in the moisture, sealing in the juices for extra deliciousness. The crab cakes are served with a cajun remoulade made with creole mustard, lemon and pickles. We also top them with crispy potato strings.
