Holsteins

This A.M. if you are planning your trip out to Las Vegas you have to make time to chill for a while at the Cosmopolitan. It is arguably the hottest spot in Sin City and we decided to hang and have dinner there on the first evening of our trip. I am a huge fan of burgers so picking Holsteins at Cosmopolitan, an upscale burger joint with a hip atmosphere, was an easy choice.









Instead of bringing the traditional bread and butter Holsteins serves salt and vinegar popcorn, which our table couldn't get enough of. Our friend Andrew, bringing up the $5 milkshake from Pulp Fiction, ordered one of the $8 chocolate milkshakes from Holsteins vast list of shakes. We all tried the shake and it was tasty, but not anything special. Then again it was only a chocolate shake... I regret not getting one of the bam-boozeled shakes they serve, which are even pricier but, contain alcohol and unique ingredient combinations.

Steve and I got the red neck poppers for our appetizer, which were little fried balls of shredded roasted pork, smoked bacon and cheese with bbq sauce for dipping. I thought they were divine, but maybe I'm turning into a red neck! Several of us ordered the Gold Standard- "DRY AGED BEEF SIRLOIN BURGER W/ SMOKED BACON, AGED GOAT CHEDDAR CHEESE, TOMATO CONFIT, BABY ARUGULA & GARLIC-CHIVE AIOLI" which was outstanding and prepared exactly how we requested: medium-rare. And for desert... are you kidding me?! We left fat and happy with no room left for even a single bite, say less desert.
