Le Cirque @ The Bellagio

If there was only one restaurant you could eat at in Las Vegas, it should be Le Cirque. Its heritage traces back to its flagship location in Manhattan. Opened in 1976, Le Cirque has become the gold standard of French cuisine this side of the Atlantic. Walk passed Hyde Nightclub, and enter into what could possibly be the best restaurant in the world. A selection of menus is available and while it’s not cheap, it’s definitely worth it. Dishes include lobster & avocado salad; gold crusted quail with foie gras, and braised veal cheeks. Furthermore, the wine list is unparalleled and as you’d expect, the desserts are delectable. If you only live once, treat yourself to Le Cirque.

He lives in Los Angeles, but travels to Las Vegas at least twice a month to reboot. When he’s not writing, he can be found at the nearest pool bar, staying cool and perfecting his signature cocktail, the Midnight, with the mixologists of Sin City. He’s been known to disappear for days, only to return with a must-eat culinary gem, and while he believes nobody’s perfect, he’s pretty sure we can get damn close with the right pair of sunglasses.
