Having had a good meal at La Cave in the past, I had reasonably high expectations coming into this other Michael Morton restaurant. The overhaul of the former Nobhill space in the MGM Grand has resulted in a dark, intimate atmosphere perfect for a date night yet casual enough for a group gathering. The menu has plenty of shareable, small portion items along with larger entrees. We started by ordering two items while deciding what else to order.

First to arrive at the table was a dense, bland ricotta gnocchi. The only saving grace of the dish was the braised short rib. Following that was a date and artichoke pizza with hints of heat and sweetness making up its profile. A decent dish for sure, but the somewhat underwhelming start to the meal quickly turned into the end of our meal as we decided not to order more. Instead, we opted for an impromptu restaurant crawl, moving from one MGM Grand restaurant to the next.
