If you're not into gambling or clubbing then it's makes a lot more sense to go to New York for dining options. Vegas is really the epitome of American excessive bad taste. There are rare gems like a few of the Cirque du Soleil shows, but apart from that I don't like the sin city at all.

There's some good (though expensive) golf to be had as well.

L'Atelier is not $300pp - Robuchon is.

Le Cirque at Bellagio
Picasso at Bellagio
Bouchon at Venetian (owned by Thomas Keller)


It's been a few years, but I like Le Cirque and found Picasso lacking. Haven't been to Bouchon.

$300 per for Robuchon? Do the big tasting, some good wine, plus plus...$750.

I just don't think the quality is very high. Next door is great, and some other Ateliers are good as well, though the crowd at the one in Paris-6 is a bunch of sausage fingered Arabs and Russians with very young dates, so that makes it hard to enjoy. But that is a different issue.

I would fit right in.

Distribute sausage fingered and young dates to both Arabs and Russians. I hope you do not yet have sausage fingers.

+1 on the sweet breads at Robuchon.

Picasso is pretty great too. The steak of fois gras is fantastic. Prices are obviously high (unless you're a 1%er), but really I thought for what it was they were pretty reasonable. You could pretty realistically get out of there for $150ish or so with wine I'd think. Heck, IIRC their most expensive tasting menu is $100-$125 or so.

No sausage fingers, I promise.

If you are a bit careful, you can do dinner at Guy Savoy for around that price. Food is wonderful, so is the service.

I agree about pricing. I remember the tasting menus were very well priced. The secret is skip the foie and don't blow your brains out on wine.

IIRC Robuchon was $450, I could be wrong. confused.gif
