Serendipity 3 Temptations for Valentine’s Day
Serendipity 3 restaurant at Caesars Palace has put together a truly impressive special menu for Valentine’s Day, and we couldn’t resist sharing some photos of the dishes that will be causing unrepentant salivation on what’s sure to be the most romantic day of 2012. Even with all the, you know, saliva.
The items on the special menu can be ordered individually, or as part of an “Adam & Eve Special,” for $75 a person. The “Adam & Eve Special” includes a shared bottle of Serendipity sparkling wine (below), which we’re fairly sure is “champagne,” but you can’t call something champagne if it’s not from Champagne, France. The sparkling wine at Serendipity 3 more than makes up for not being from Champagne by having some extra bling.
The Valentine’s Day menu starts off with the Garden of Eden Parmesan Stacked Salad ($15). Las Vegas tends to know its way around things that are stacked, if you get our drift.
The main courses are a threesome of titillating temptations. A phrase this blog is currently in the process of trademarking, we should add.
First, it’s the Moons of Venus New York Strip ($28), with steamed asparagus, Béarnaise sauce and a Romano Onion Ring Stack so tall, it can’t actually be photographed using modern technology.
Entree option number two is the Mighty Aphrodite Shrimp Pesto Fettuccine ($20). The smell alone is like giving your date a bath in pheromones. Or something.
The final entree to choose from is the Sweetheart Half Roasted Chicken Panzanella ($20).
For dessert, Serendipity 3 really pulls out all the stops, with a Sensual Strawberry Shortcake ($15) and what has to be one of the most decadent desserts in recent memory, Cupid’s Molten Chocolate Cupcake ($15).
Cupid’s “cupcake” features vanilla ice cream, raspberry sauce, fresh berries, topped with white chocolate hearts.
You think the outside of the Cupid’s Molten Chocolate Cupcake looks great? Wait until you get inside. When you cut into the cake, you strike a mother lode of chocolate sauce.
At this juncture, it’s important to note chocolate contains phenylethylamine, the chemical that simulates the feeling of being in love. Ah, the circularity of the universe.
