Social Hour at Comme Ca Las Vegas 

Enjoying a fancy Vegas restaurant without committing to a long & pricey dinner

Las Vegas is one of my favorite foodie destinations. The city is a migration point for start-up restaurants with deep pockets, “son of” restaurants from major cities, and money pits for celebrity chefs who want to add some bling to their restaurant portfolio. One of Los Angeles better restaurants to move to Las Vegas is Comme Ca, located in Cosmopolitan resort.

Comme Ca Las Vegas

Comme Ca is a French styled brasserie that focuses on local and seasonal ingredients, using classic French techniques with a modern penchant for innovation.  The restaurant is founded by Michelin Star Chef, David Meyers, who studied under Daniel Boloud.  Comme Ca Las Vegas is one of the must visit restaurants on the strip and could be price prohibitive for a unplanned and casual meal.  This is where the Cosmopolitan Resort’s Social Hour program has it’s biggest benefit.

Cosmopolitan’s Social Hour

Social Hour is The Cosmopolitan’s program to offer discounted small plates, appetizers and signature cocktails at their restaurant bars from 5-7:30pm. Some restaurants have embraced the concept better than others. In my opinion Comme Ca has best embraced Social Hour by offering an extensive Social Hour menu and extended hours (5-10pm).

Food from the Comme Ca Social Hour Menu

 

Beef Tartare

I love beef Tartare and this interpretation was delicious. Raw beef is finely minced, Southern France style. The Tartare is served in a jar with olive oil, a shaved hard cheese and a very runny poached egg yolk,. The beef jar is served on a board with their house pickled vegetables and grilled country bread. I really enjoyed this dish because it reminded me of the preparation I enjoyed while in Niece, France several years ago.  I would order this again.  $11

Salmon Tartare Toast

Delicious but small. Fresh salmon was finely minced and mixed with, Kalamata olives, fresh herbs, lemon juice and just a tad of olive oil. It is served on slightly crunchy grilled bread that has been spread with a cream cheese style mixture and topped with dill.  Altogether this is a great tasting small plate. At $9 it was just acceptable  based on the quality of this dish. I am a big fan of quality over quantity, but I would have liked to have had one more piece of toast for $9 (especially since this is their social hour) The dinner appetizer version is priced at $14.

Oysters on the Half Shell

For $2 per oyster shell this was a good price for the high quality and freshness.  There were several oysters being served fresh that day, although I think I ordered the Hama Hama and  and Fanny Bay oysters. Fresh oysters are best served simply with on ice with your choice of tabasco, lemon, horseradish and cocktail sauce. The oysters were clean and fresh.

Tarte Flambée Fromage Blanc

A classic French style tarte, which is a very thin flat bread topped with creamy white cheese, caramelized onions, bacon lardons and topped with fresh chives. I wouldn’t expect to eat this dish as a meal, but rather as something to munch one while enjoying a cocktail or with other small plate items. I loved the crispness of the crust against the gooey cheese and salty lardon. $9

Dessert (off the main menu)

Butterscotch pot de crème with  Chocolate Dipped Bacon

Dessert was in order, so we ordered off the main menu.  I asked the waitress for her favorite dessert. She said it was the butterscotch pot de crème with chocolate dipped bacon.  The dessert is essentially a butterscotch custard  that is looser than a standard custard like flan.

It is topped with a piece of crisp and cool bacon that has been dipped in chocolate. Although many people have come to associate chocolate covered bacon as county fair food, it is actually a classic French garnish. The dessert was amazing once you get over the weirdness of eating , butterscotch, chocolate and bacon together.  The flavors and texture of the butterscotch pot de crème came together nicely with the sweet and salty bacon.  $13
