L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon serves fine French food — and no good French meal would be complete without a wine pairing. The Four-Star restaurant, located on the ground floor of Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, offers a $65 per person wine pairing with the $95 five-course menu club, as well as a $105 wine pairing that complements the $155 nine-course seasonal tasting menu.
Of course, if you’re looking for a great wine to pair with your three-course L’Unique menu or à la carte choices, the sommelier staff is on hand to recommend wines to enhance your meal. L’Atelier has two sommeliers in the restaurant every night, as well as a wine director who hails from British Columbia. His background in fine French and Spanish wines gives the wine list a broad selection of traditional European reds, as well as a smattering of interesting picks from Eastern Europe, South America and the director’s native Canada. There are plenty of bottles for less than $100 a piece, but if you’re looking for that once-in-a-lifetime dinner, there are also prestige wines, including grand crus from Burgundy and first growths from Bordeaux. Some of the priciest selections include a $27,000 bottle of 1927 Cheval Blanc and a $10,000 bottle of 1982 Château Pétrus from Bordeaux.
