When you dine at L’Atetlier de Joël Robuchon, a Four-Star restaurant from legendary chef Joël Robuchon located in MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, you can either find one of the best bargains in Las Vegas or indulge in a nine-course French tasting menu-there’s literally an option for every palate and budget.
If you arrive at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant before 6:15 p.m., you can opt for the $59 L’Unique menu, which includes an appetizer, main course and dessert-all served within 15 minutes. It’s a great option if you have theater tickets or want to try a Robuchon meal on a budget.
The restaurant also offers the $95 five-course menu club, which includes two lighter courses, such as a langoustine fritter with basil pesto or gazpacho, or a more substantial course like veal piccata with an arugula salad. A cheese course and a dessert follow to deliver a great taste of the kitchen staff’s talents. There’s an additional wine pairing with the menu club, which costs $65 per person.
If you’re looking for the ultimate indulgence, go for the $155 seasonal discovery menu, which includes nine courses and has an additional $105 wine pairing. Choose the vegetarian version or opt for the full-on French experience with courses such as lamb shoulder confit with eggplant compote, foie gras-stuffed free-range quail and mascarpone panna cotta topped with fresh strawberries.
You can also experience L’Atelier as the small plates restaurant Robuchon envisioned in Paris by ordering a few courses from the à la carte menu. The menu is laid out tapas-style, so you don’t have to order an appetizer, main course and dessert. Pick and choose among the courses, which include options such as Maine lobster salad with sherry vinegar dressing, steak tartare with old-fashioned frites, and a green chartreuse soufflé topped with pistachio ice cream.
