If you are in Sales, Las Vegas will eventually be a destination for you. The massive hotel and conference capacity lends itself to being a top host city for large scale corporate events and/or sales kickoffs.
In Vegas, you’ll quickly appreciate the phrase “No Limit”. There is no limit to the amount of money spent on glamour, food, shopping, gambling, and anything else for that matter. The city breaks out the red carpet for the high rollers and anyone willing to try and hit it big.
If you are entertaining clients or just looking to experience the best Vegas has to offer knowing where to dine is the foundation to having a great time.
Here are 3 of my #thesalesgoatcertified favorites that I dined at this week.
1. Cut by Wolfgang Puck @ the Palazzo
Cut delivers innovation at every level through its unique culinary, service and design combination. If you are looking for great steak – Cut has the finest selections of beef, cooked simply and presented beautifully. My personal favorite was the USDA Prime, Nebraska Corn Fed, Dry Aged 35 days New York Strip. They also had an amazing selection of American Wagyu, Snake River Farms Idaho which they showcased tableside. One word of caution, the bread options and dessert are hard definitely hard to pass up.
The attention to detail by the staff was duly noted making this restaurant a Cut above.
2. YellowTail Japanese Restaurant and Lounge @ the Bellagio
Chef Akira Back offers a fine dining experience in a truly one of a kind setting. He uses the highest quality seasonal fish and ingredients to create absolute masterpieces. The menu was packed with modern Japanese creations that were just incredible.
The Big Eye Tuna Pizza, Yellow Tail Jalapeno, Rock Shrimp, and the Mile High Roll were just a few of my favorites for the evening. While I didn’t get to try the $2,400 Frozen Beauty Sake (not within the corporate expense guidelines) we had some really great options to choose from.
3. Carbone @ the Aria
Phone: (702) 590-2663
If you are in the mood for great Italian, look no further. This celebrated concept from Mario Carbone, Rich Torrisi and Jeff Zalaznick pays homage to the Italian-American restaurants of the mid-20th century – an era of glamour, showmanship and tableside service.
Carbone already had me sold at the bar, attention to service by the bartenders was top shelf as were the wide range of cocktails offered.
Our larger party was perfect for going family style with the food. My personal favorites were the Veal Parmigiana and the meatballs which were both made to perfection.
Remember… being great in sales is about creating unique experiences for your clients. Making the time spent truly memorable sets you apart from the rest.
