the view from the bar...with the giant kinetic sculpture doing its thang
i have been curious about MR. CHOW (yes, all caps) for a long time.  it's a restaurant that gets a lot of press and tons of hype (you can't read a celebrity magazine without hearing that some famous person was eating/drinking/being seen at MR. CHOW), and i'll admit- i was curious! 
i've never been to either of the LA locations, but when my guy and i were in vegas this weekend, we decided we should go see this place for ourselves.  the vegas version of MR. CHOW is in caesar's palace, and is accessed by a fun little room where you catch a ride in a private elevator up to the restaurant.
the dining room is uber modern, and almost entirely white, from the linens, to the flowers, to the server's uniforms.  i was so glad that i hadn't read much about it before going, because once we were settled with delicious cocktails in hand (the spicy "jalisco" for me),  purple and blue lights went on, and the giant white circle that was the dining room ceiling suddenly began to lower and move.  it was quite a show, and totally vegas worthy. i was impressed!
though the food at MR. CHOW wasn't anything to write home about, the venue, design and theatrics of the place were amazing. 
viva las vegas!
