The best place to sit at L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon really depends on how many people you’re dining with. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star French restaurant, located on the ground floor of MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, is best known for its small plates and visually arresting kitchen design. If you’re dining solo or with a few friends, we’d recommend taking one of the 33 seats at the counter.
If you’re with a group larger than four, it will be hard to have a conversation at the counter, so we’d recommend snagging one of the five tables that seat up to 23 people. Regardless of whether you sit at the counter or at a table, you’ll have a great view of the open kitchen, garde manger, hot line and pastry station. It’s really just a matter of where you’ll feel comfortable with the number of people in your party.
Keep in mind that if you’re dining with a group of eight or larger, you’ll have to put down a $500 deposit and a non-refundable large party fee (which starts at $125 for a group of eight). The Las Vegas restaurant requests 24 hours' notice for cancellations, but larger parties have to give more than 15-days notice to avoid being charged a portion of the expected dining cost.
