1. L'ATELIER de Joël Robuchon
L'ATELIER de Joël Robuchon is an idea inspired by other sushi counters where food is prepared in front of the customers by Japanese masters. Since I’m a sushi chef (by no means a master) I love the concept of an open kitchen. According to recorded facts L’ Atelier popped into existence in Tokyo. It was started with a simple concept of an open kitchen with a 40 seat counter and other high tables where customers were able to see the dishes being cooked and could order according to their requirements as ‘La Carte’, meaning small portions of great Classics. The idea was elaborated by Joel Robuchon, Kenichiro Sekiya and his staff here adapted this idea. Also a variety of wines from all over the world is available.
2. Bardot Brasserie
Bardot Brasserie is a unique blend of a traditional Parisian cafe and a modern award-winning restaurant. The modern interpretation of traditional braseeria includes lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch by the world-renowned Chef Michael Mina and Chef Nick Dugan. Other specialties of this restaurant include Roasted Chicken, Soup de Mer, and French onion soup with Périgord truffles. Signature Everlasting Rose and Diane’s Bloody Mary menu is being served as a popular brunch on weekends. The name Bardot Braseeria resonates with the special taste of Paris in Las Vegas. Bardot is also famous for its famous wine collection of wines. Special wines are being served to the customers to elevate their meals. Bardot Brasserie’s wine program focuses on the regions of Burgundy, Bordeaux, the Rhône, Alsace, and the Loire Valley.
3. Craft steakhouse
Craft steakhouse aims at revamping the concept of the modern streak cuisine by sourcing the meat from world-class places and anti-aging it efficiently in their custom-built anti-aging room before use. Several types of streaks are being offered to the customers so that they can have a blend of unique flavors of prime USDA anti-aging beef. Delicious fresh fish and shellfish are also served at Craft Steakhouse as part of its seafood assortments recipes. Las Vegas Life Magazine‘s Epicurean Award for Best New Restaurant was awarded to Craft Steakhouse in 2003 and it was also awarded the best steakhouse award in 2005.
