L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon, Las Vegas

The highlight of my Las Vegas food adventure was having dinner at L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon in MGM Grand Hotel. We had the Menu Decouverte (a 9-course Discovery Tasting Menu) and four bottles of fantastic wine to accompany the food. I got way too excited about the dinner that I forgot to bring my digital camera so I had to use my iPhone camera to take the pictures and, later on, I also lost the menu and a list containing the names of the wines that we had on the way back to our hotel.

L'Amuse-Bouche - Foie gras parfait with port wine and parmesan foam

Le Saumon Fume - Smoked salmon in an herb gelee with a light wasabi cream

Les Huitres - Poached baby Kussi oysters with French Echire butter

Le Homard - Maine lobster in a tomato sauce and green asparagus

Le Foie Gras - Foie gras ravioli in a warm chicken broth with herbs

La Maquereau - Mackerel with warm leek salad and crispy potato

La Caille - Free-range quail stuffed with foie gras and served with truffled-mashed potatoes

1st Dessert - Peach sorbet and mouse (? - forgot the description)

2nd Dessert - Almond crunch, mouse and acai flavored cotton candy (? - forgot the description)

Le Cafe - Coffee and chocolate

  2. Let's go back!!! So yummy and so much fun!!! FYI, the types of wines we drank (though i can't remember the vintner or vintage except for the champagne) were a Savennières (which is Chenin Blanc), a white Burgundy (Chardonnay), a Châteauneuf-du-Pape (mostly Grenache and Syrah), and Gosset champagne.
