L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon [Las Vegas]

Name Chef of the Century, of course I had his restaurant while I am in Vegas but Joel Robuchon (@RobuchonLV) $425pp Tasting is way out of our budget, so we went next door to L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon next door. It's the culinary workshop of the gourmet mastermind, featuring counter service where everything is prepare right before your eyes in the open kitchen.

I will always love an open kitchen concept since it's just fascinating to watch the chefs working on the dishes but thought the decor of the the space here is a bit dated.

They have a 5 and 6 course prix fixe menu for $78 or $105pp as well as a $159pp 12 course Seasonal Discovery Menu but a la carte is also available. With dishes of $25 and up, the prix fixe is really the best choice. We decided on the 5 course option which include an amuse bouche, 2 Entrées, 1 main and 1 desserts. 

Amuse Bouche
~ Foie Gras parfait with a port wine and Parmesan foam

Les Endives
~ Endives méli mélo with foie gras shavings and blue cheese

La Dorade
~ Snapper carpacho served in lemon vinaigrette with poppy seeds and espelette pepper

L'Oeuf de Poule
~ Soft boiled egg with spinach veloute

Le Foie Gras
~ Kabocha pumpkin gnocchi, seared foie gras and chestnuts confites (suppl. $10)

Le Cochon de Lait
~ Suckling pig confit, sautéed cabbage with ginger and chanterelle (suppl. $10)

Le Canard
~ Roasted duck fillet with pears marinated in a Grenache blend with light spices

Pommes Purée
Super smooth buttery goodness, no wonder why it's their Signature dish

Les Tartes
~ Traditional tarts

Le Victoria
~ Pineapple sorbet with cheesecake cream and jasmine gelée

Maybe next time we'll splurge on the $425pp Sixteen Course tasting menu at Joel Robuchon next door.

I wouldn't say it's super memorable but it was definitely worth every dollar.
At $78pp, it was rather affordable for the food and service that you get.
