Heirloom tomatoes at Delmonico Steakhouse, Las Vegas
"Simplicity is not simple," a little bird tweeted to me recently (actually, it was Bradley Ogden--more on him soon). Proof is this lovely plate of colorful, deep-flavored heirloom tomatoes with some burratta so creamy it was barely solid, perfectly executed at Emeril Lagasse's enduring meat and whiskey palace in The Venetian resort. A few onion slivers and aged balsamic, and really, is there anything that can beat this in the summertime? Get 'em while they're gold.
