Dublin Corned Beef Brisket Sandwich at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill
Superchef Gordon Ramsay opened three restaurants in one year on the Las Vegas Strip in 2012—a steakhouse, then a pub, then a burger joint. The steakhouse and burger joint are both among the best in their category compared to other Vegas options. The pub? Not so much. At least not when it first opened. We had some disappointing meals there, and we weren't the only ones. But because it's Ramsay, and because it has the best possible location in Caesars Palace, and because of the type of restaurant it is, we knew that in due time we'd be back at this pub to see if it turned out to be as delicious as we'd hoped. Our recent visit proves that to be the case. And the highlight of the lunch was this killer corned beef sandwich, fatty, tender, moist, savory brisket brined to absolute perfection and stacked tall on dark caraway rye. Guyere cheese, a proper portion of tangy sauerkraut, pickled onions and gooey cucumber dressing make it a messy masterpiece, and quite Reuben-esque, too. This is one of those sandwiches that comes out, makes you drool, and forces you to eat the whole thing even though half is more than a meal. Perhaps Ramsay's pub has come a long way.
