We ordered the 1.5 pound pastrami sandwich from Zoozacrackers deli at 3 pm, which made our 6 pm Alex reservations impossible. The dinner reservations were moved back to 8:30 pm. It was the perfect time for us to go.
My main course was lamb with peas, lettuce and pasta balls. I put the darker triangle on my fork, thinking it was a vegetable, and ate it. Immediately I thought, this is not a vegetable, it's lamb offal. When questioned further, the chef told the server the triangle was in fact lamb tongue. I knew what the second item was: sweetbread--i.e. thymus glands (which immediately went to my husband, who's not nearly as squeamish as I am about offal). The lamb dish was delicious (though I enjoy vegetables much more than animal innards). Ecologically it's better to consume, and not waste, the whole animal.
I loved the way the palate cleanser came in Bodum cups that made the custards look like they were floating. My husband's was tropical tapioca and coconut, while mine was berry-based.
Hearing Alex was the best restaurant at the Wynn, we wished to try it while we were there. Restaurant Alex delighted our senses and added to our very pleasant time in Las Vegas.
