Let’s face it, Vegas is expensive. The price tag for any Vegas jaunt is going to be hefty so why not go big or go home by dining at some of Las Vegas’ best restaurants?
Joël Robuchon: This place has three Michelin stars. Three! Serving delicate French dishes in an intimate dining setting, Joël Robuchon is a far cry from the slightly garish eateries you may expect in Vegas. Dress in your best formal get-up for a tasting menu of Oscetra caviar with crustacean gelée, Maine lobster with sliced turnip, frog leg kadaif fritter with red miso, and more.
Le Cirque: A colourful French dining experience awaits a Le Cirque (picture above) where a ten-course tasting menu will set you back $350 each. Expect innovate, yet delicate dishes such as the Maryland blue crab with Russian Osetra caviar, and the chocolate ball with white chocolate ice cream and hazelnut crunch.
Wing Lei: Combing Western and Chinese flavours, Wing Lei is a beautiful Michelin-starred restaurant that features lavish gold and jewel-toned decor. A masterful mix of Cantonese, Shanghai and Szechuan flavours, you’ll be treated to delicacies like tableside-carved Imperial Peking duck, mu shu pork and wok-fried Maine lobster.
