It took weeks of delays, at least $6 million in construction costs and whole lot of flashing of a megawatt TV celebrity smile, but Giada is finally ready to debut. The first restaurant from the TV star chef Giada De Laurentiis, opening tomorrow night at The Cromwell, features views of the Strip, a pizza oven, a full custom antipasti bar and long menu elegantly encased in a white leather binder.

The menu thoughtfully tags Giada's favorite dishes along with those of her aunt Raffy and also her maternal grandfather, the late film producer Dino De Laurentiis. A hint at what you should order might be found in the tasting menu given to friends and family before opening. After antipasti, Giada offered a choice of pea tortellini or lemon spaghetti with shrimp or vegetable Bolognese. The main dish choices she gave to early diners were Sicilian roasted lamb, seared salmon with summer succotash or farrotto with fava beans and morels, plus smashed potatoes and sweet corn with spicy Italian sausage as the chosen sides.

Highlights listed by Giada include the $42 seven-ounce filet with salsa verde and crispy polenta and the $55 whole chicken for two served cacciatore style. Not included on the menu, the evolving offerings on the rose gold dessert cart.

Depending on your state of mind, you might consider the phonetically spelled out pasta dishes listed on the menu either an aide to correctly order in a fun manner, or an unwitting move to treating you like a child in a restaurant offering a very adult priced $68 rib eye.
