For My last meal review in Las Vegas i'll be reviewing a Celebrity Chefs place. Todd English's Public Urban Bar located at the City Center Aria Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. For years I have wanted to go to a Todd English place in Vegas ( he has three of them) and so this vacation Simone and i did. The first problem I had was actually finding the entrance.
You can see the place from the inside of Aria but the only entrance that i could find was from the outside walkway. At any rate, when we got to the P.U.B, the place was rather large and it was packed full of people. our waitress was able to squeeze us in at a table once again right beside the restrooms (this always happens to me). While I took advantage of being so close to the crapper Simone took a look at the menus.
As mentioned earlier, I feel the need to share with you the aftermath of my meal choice . The Bologna bit me back at around midnight. The word Fire comes to mind, Not just your average heartburn situation- this burned EVERYWHERE. And it hung on. Three Zantacs, and a night of getting to know my hotel throne and Todd English and his meat were still with me. It took me almost the next twenty four hours to feel well again and it made for a rather rough last day in Vegas ( sorry to the hotel janitorial staff). I wish I could honestly say that I will not hold it against the P.U.B, but I probably will. I can tell you for a fact my Bologna days are over. Even doing this review today my stomach turns just a bit at the memory. Maybe someday I will go back to the P.U.B , but who knows? Sorry Todd, I so wanted to love your new place... but it stayed with me for way to long. Thanks for the memories...Two stars for the PUB. **
