Take Three Chefs


Recommended Posts

Take Gordon Ramsay,Jason Atherton,"Nobu" Matsuhisa, and add a very large dash of mega richness in the form of Sol Kerzner.

What do you get?

Success on the plate, simple as.

I thought it was quite a weird article, obviously a slow news day. I know places like the Crowne Casino (in Melbourne) already do this, with lots of top name chefs including Nobu already established and Ramsay opening soon. Isn't the same true for Las Vegas and Dubai?

Not been to Vegas or Dubai for a handful of years

So I'm out of touch somewhat.

Do know one thing though, especially when it comes to Vegas

The dining choices, are incredible, I bet more so now.

We had our best steak ever,in a restaurant in Mandalay Bay although the name escapes me now.

We don't gamble at all, but go just for the stunning shows and the myriad food options

Best bargains of all are the top end hotel buffets, absolutely massive choice.

I can almost guarantee most of Americas top chefs and european ones too have a presence

Emeril Lagasse, and Wolfgang Puck were a couple of places we ate

Dubai is a very different sort of place, we stayed at Jumeira Beach, which has only one fabulous seafood restaurant (it deserves more) which is slightly out to sea with stunning views back to the hotel.

We dined at a couple of the rated restaurants in Burj al Arab although the food was not memorable, the surroundings were.

We asked if we could pay a supplement to stay in the Burj for a couple of nights but at £500 a night I politely declined, they are sister hotels by the way.

Before posting this I googled Mandalay Bay and guess what? Monsieur Ducasse has a restaurant there.

If you look at the dining options, its fairly mind boggling and this is just "one" hotel

Will have to go again, very soon me thinks.................................

I also go to Vegas to eat and for the shows. Have been over 20 times. Robuchon at MGM and Savoy are top notch and three star all the way. Joel's is different than anything he has done but it is like eating in a jewel box with high quality food. Savoy has most of the things on the Paris menu. Alex is behind them but at a two star level

Daniel, Ducasse and others do not capture the experience of their main restaurants but are still pretty good.

I have been reading here for my trip to London and Paris and May and appreciate all the reviews here

Morning, Hemingway,

At least its morning in the UK. What time is it in Dallas?

Most brits tend only to associate Vegas with gambling, and whilst the City was built, and indeed is still being rebuilt on gambling money, it has a huge amount to offer besides.

It really is a fantasy land, we have very fond memories.

Thanks very much for the update, perhaps it may change peoples perception, for what in my opinion ,is a mind blowing destination.

This is a very interesting article if you have the palate for very fine wine.

Sad to admit it is wasted on me, food is my focus.

I can claim to have dined at Aureole, the interior is spectacular, the food was excellent, but sadly a distant memory
