World-renowned French chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten offers a unique take on the traditional American steakhouse, and his originality and creativity can be seen — and tasted — throughout the menu. Here are five of our favorite things to dine on at Jean Georges Steakhouse in Las Vegas:

1. The tasting menu. If you’re a first-time diner at the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended restaurant, the $95 five-course tasting menu is a great value. It’s perfect for sampling all the dishes that the restaurant is known for. The decadent menu offers an appetizer, salad, seafood course, meat course and dessert, so you’re sure to leave the Las Vegas restaurant feeling full and satiated.

2. The bone marrow. One of the most creative and tasty dishes on the menu is the broiled bone marrow with parsley-lemon gremolota. This unusual dish is packed with flavor and personality. The richness of the marrow blends seamlessly with the citrusy brightness of the relish.

3. The black truffle and comté fritter. If a savory treat is what you crave, order the black truffle and Comté fritter. This salty and cheesy delicacy is crispy on the outside, and is the ideal prelude to whatever main course you choose.

4. The sweetbreads. For the perfect appetizer to snack on while you wait for your entrée, try the salt and pepper sweetbreads with sweet chili emulsion, pea shoots and golden garlic for $18.

5. The molten chocolate cake. If you plan on springing for dessert during your Vegas vacation, do it at Jean Georges Steakhouse. Order the molten chocolate cake. This classic dessert was invented by Jean-Georges Vongerichten himself, and it’s sure to wow any chocolate lover.

Choosing the "best" of Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s extraordinary creations is a difficult task, but some of the not-to-be-missed menu items include the Tuna Tartare with Avocado and Soy-Ginger Dressing and the Day Boat Chilean Sea Bass Roasted with Miso and Yuzu. The Soy-Glazed Short Rib with Apple-Jalapeno Purée has quickly become one of the more acclaimed favorites while the Roasted Bone Marrow with a Meyer Lemon Jam is truly a unique option for the slightly-more daring. As for the top steak choice, I’d have to say that the 21-Day Dry Aged Angus 300 New York Strip is a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable dish.
