Las Vegas' only 3 Michelin star awarded restaurant set in the MGM Hotel
As a treat following the London Marathon and returning from Afghanistan, a holiday to Las Vegas in first class flights was arranged and this was the no brainer option to have whilst out there – Las Vegas’ only 3 Michelin starred option. Michelin stopped visiting Las Vegas owing to its cut backs as of 2009 however, we slipped in just before they extracted whilst the establishment had this live accolade to see what the score was. The result was a restaurant tucked away in the far end of the gambling hall of the MGM which was somehow shielded from the bustling crowds, bleeps and sirens of the slot machines a short distance away. The summary is sensational food, astronomic prices, world class service but all within a serious (low atmosphere) restaurant.
Inside, the grandeur of the venue was immediately clear but therein lay one of the first negatives – I didn’t feel 100% comfortable as was evidently a very serious affair meaning laughter and ease was almost not appropriate inside. However, the main talking was in the food and the choice of 20 breads to choose from at the beginning was certainly a good start. Presentationally, this meal was up there with the sexiest looking dishes one could ask for and the flavours were simply wonderful. It was a superb menu and experience indeed but at £440 per head inclusive of drinks and tip whilst not even being the most expensive option, it was not exactly cheap. However, it is still nestled in the memories as a special meal though and that is how it will remain.
