Too Hot Tamales stars Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger have brought Border Grill, their legendary Los Angeles restaurant, to The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace and have set the bar higher for Mexican cuisine in Las Vegas.
Like the original Santa Monica location of their gourmet Mexican eatery, Border Grill Las Vegas is decorated with funky murals on the walls that lend the place a hip and energetic vibe. The original restaurant is almost as famous for their Margaritas as it is for the food, and the Caesars Palace version does not disappoint, with inventive signature selections, Frozen Fruit Margaritas, or the truly epic Border Shaker for Two, served in your own personal cocktail shaker.
The legendary Border Grill menu is intact as well, with signature appetizers like their selection of fresh Ceviche, Skillet Steak Nachos, and their epic Border Grill Classics platter, which is piled high with green corn tamales, quinoa fritters, and Plantain Empanadas (roasted plantains stuffed with black beans, poblano, and cojito cheese).
Signature entrees like Cumin Grilled Skirt Steak (marinated in garlic, cilantro, cumin, and lime with a side of tomato avocado salad, charred corn relish, and black beans), Carne Asada Tacos (with arbol salsa, arugala, crispy shallot, and guacamole stuffed inside handmade tortillas, and served with a side of organic black beans and rice), and their famous Tortilla Crusted Chile Rellenos (stuffed with roasted red poblanos, a blend of manchego, panela, and cotija cheeses, roja and tomatillo salsas, and black beans) prove how Milliken and Feniger became celebrity chefs as they put inventive gourmet spins on Mexican cuisine staples. Save room for sinful desserts like Strawberry Tres Leches Cake, Fruit Ceviche, and Coconut Flan.
Brunch specialties, served on Saturdays and Sundays, include Capirotada French Toast (Sourdough Bread Dipped topped with Bourbon Maple Syrup, walnuts, ancho cherry marmalade, and Goat Cheese Crema), Machaca Chilaquiles (warm tortilla chips covered topped with beef brisket, eggs, and a blend of Mexican cheeses), and Chorizo and Egg Tacos (chorizo, scrambled eggs, cotija cheese, chipotle salsa and fried potatoes stuffed into fresh tortillas), with special brunch cocktails like Passion Micheladas, Ruby Cerveza Rosa, Border Bacon Marys (made with horseradish, red-pepper spiced tomato, and bacon infused vodka) or bottomless mimosas. Brunch diners can also enjoy endless small plates for a reasonable fee.
With Border Grill Las Vegas, with its funky ambience and innovative, gourmet interpretations of Mexican favorites, Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger bring everything that made their original restaurant a Los Angeles treasure to The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace.
