In my first few articles it’s been pretty much fun and games with our activities on the Las Vegas Strip. We are either hitting the sports book, or playing a little poker, before we head off for some good eating.
Unfortunately, everyday can’t be just fun and games. Today it’s about business.
There are many times when I head to the Strip for a business meeting, or to meet a client who is in town. If you’re looking to impress a client or business colleague, I have the spot for that power lunch – Milo’s in the Cosmopolitan.
It’s a hidden gem when it comes to seafood on the Strip. Milo’s offers a special three-course lunch menu for $20.12. That kind of price is sure to impress your guest.
You first get to pick an appetizer from a list of four-to-six choices. My favorite is the fresh diver scallop skewer with grilled green peppers and sweet onions. You can also choose smoked salmon with cream cheese and a St. Viateur Bagel from Montreal. Trust me these are a great way to start any meal.
The main course and my favorite is the lavraki, which is Mediterranean bass. It’s grilled to perfection and tastes incredible. (Warning: If you don’t like your food looking back at you, this may not be one on your order list. Ask your waiter to take care of that before bringing it out).
Milo’s also offers salmon as a main course with a selection of steamed vegetables. There are four entrée’s to choose from and if you want to kick things up a notch for an extra charge the choices also include USDA prime lamb chops, or Nova Scotia deep sea lobster pasta.
There are still more decisions to make after your main course. Three desert selections are available with my favorite being the walnut cake with kaimaki ice cream. Also on the menu is a yogurt Martini, which is fresh yogurt and berries served in a Martini glass. The final choice is a nice selection of fresh seasonal fruits.
So when business calls for you to head to the Strip, I highly recommend a power lunch at Milo’s. I can’t guarantee how your business meeting will turn out, but I know you will have a fantastic lunch at a great price.
If you are taking your special lady and want to impress her, call ahead and reserve a window table facing the Strip. You’ll score bonus points for that move. Milo’s lunch special is one of the best deals on the Strip for an upscale restaurant.
I give Milo’s 3½ Forks.
