On the first night in Vegas, we decided to stay local. I had never been to Vegas, so I had no idea which restaurants to try. Thankfully D has been here before and he remembered going to Buzios seafood restaurant at The Rio, which was where we were staying.
D has been to Buzios on previous family vacations, so he knew the food was good. I love seafood, so I was super excited to try out the food at Buzio’s. Since we had a Winchell’s donuts and a treinta coffee from Starbucks, we weren’t that hungry. For an appetizer, we ordered a bowl of the clam chowder. I love clam chowder and it was great at Buzio’s. It was rich and creamy, not too runny or thick. The bits of clams were nice and juicy.
D’s entree was the halibut fish and chips (I think he plays it safe but he’s cute, so it’s ok). The fish was moist on the inside and super crunchy and fried on the outside. The fish had a nice italian seasoning. The fries were thick cut (my favorite type of fries). Overall, this dish was good but pretty much the same as everywhere else that makes fish and chips.
For my entree, I ordered the grouper with hollandaise and shredded crab meat. The dish came with a baked potato, green beans, and asparagus. I am not the biggest fan of fish but I figured I should order fish because well, we are at a seafood restaurant. The grouper was cooked amazingly…very flaky and moist. The hollandaise sauce was cooked perfectly and the crab meat added even more of a fresh seafood flavor to the dish. A forkful of the grouper dipped in the hollandaise sauce was just perfectly paired together. The vegetables were nice and crunchy and the baked potato was like any other baked potato.
