Our party of 4 made dinner reservations at Mystique inside Encore Casino. We were seated right away and welcomed by our server.
While perusing the menu we ordered cocktails. The menu is intriguing and it enticed into order 3 appetizers. The warm Uni toast was buttery but I would have loved some fresh herbs with it. The chicken skin from the Robata Grill was outstanding. It was crispy and a touch salty. The pork belly was good but not memorable.
We splurged and ordered the dry-aged Wagyu tomahawk. There was a little too much fat left on the steak for our group but this was a delicious entree. Throughout our meal, we kept seeing desserts go past our table. The desserts looked whimsical and definitely creatively plated. Unfortunately, the desserts ended up being more style than substance. The flavors and textures of the desserts could have been a lot better.
After dinner and before gambling could commence we enjoyed the beautiful weather by walking outside along the river. Inside the casino, I ended up have some luck. It was a terrific end to our night.
