Wolfgang Puck Pizzeria & Cucina at MGM Grand
Date(s) Visited – As often as humanly possible!
Dish ordered – Shrimp Scampi (and I’m drooling just thinking of it!)
Overall Rating: Terry Approved!
This amazing appetizer/main course dish can be ordered as a small – 6- very large shrimp, or a large -9- very large shrimp. It is served over white bean puree that has a hint of fresh lemon, garnished with fresh parsley. To make it a dinner entree you simply ask for it to be served over angel hair pasta and can order an amazing side of broccolini or a caesar salad to start. There are many other options, I am just listing my favorites!
I eat a lot of shrimp around the country and have to say that this is the best shrimp I have ever eaten. Why? Because it has a crispness, is not soggy, has an amazing and consistent flavor and always comes out piping hot! The bed of white bean puree it sits on is garlicky and flavored with fresh lemon.
Is your mouth watering yet? If I am ever asked to be a guest on the Food Network’s show “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” this is seriously what I would be talking about!
After a few years of eating this marvelous dish, the bartenders and waitresses have come to know me and know what I will inevitably order. (I think they love to see the smile on my face after my first bite!)
And let’s not forget to talk about the bread that is served at this fine restaurant! Many varieties will come in your bread basket and they are all freshly made and delicious! Can you imagine soaking up the amazing bean puree with freshly cooked bread? Actually my husband Mike and I have reservations at Wolfgang Puck Cucina this Saturday night and I can.not.wait!
P.S. I would be remiss if I did not mention the outstanding service we always receive by the bartenders and waitresses at Wolfgang’s Cucina! Another reason to keep comin’ back!
