Rate-A-Restaurant #259: 'Wichcraft
Location: Inside MGM Grand Hotel (Las Vegas)
Type of restaurant: Sandwiches
We stipulated: Before driving back to Los Angeles from Las Vegas, we picked up a few sandwiches to go for the drive home.
They stipulated: "Tom Colicchio's 'wichcraft combines the Craft ethic of great ingredients and careful execution with the ease and accessibilty of a sandwich - or as co-founder Sisha Ortuzar describes it, "it's Craft between two pieces of bread!"
What we ordered: Pressed sandwich: chicken breast, roasted red pepper, mozzarella & pesto, country bread; warm sandwich: meatloaf, cheddar, bacon & tomato relish, ciabatta
High point: Decent sandwiches, good bread and a lot of flavor.
Low point: I'm guessing these sandwiches come loaded with a hefty calorie count. I know they come loaded with a hefty price tag.
Overall impression: Good sandwiches, and even though they were a little messy to eat while driving home, they filled our bellies when we needed them the most.
Chance we'll go back: We might the next time we're in Las Vegas. Still a better option (and despite what I wrote above, more economical) than most places on the Strip.
