Thanks! Those LPs look a little sturdier than my 180g.

Shrubs are really really easy to make. I'll allow Foodguy the spammage honors.

somebody give me the down low on vegas

if you could pick one meal guy savoy or robuchon or something else?

robuchon is 425 for tasting. guy savoy is 258. if we did guy savoy i think we could also squeeze in another dinner. i was thinking bouchon.

also any recommendations on where to go what to see?

i'm assuming it's easy, it's just something that I don't want to taste if I screw it up.

I've been to both recently, and think they are great in very different ways. I don't know that I would recommend one over the other. The food at Robuchon is very precise, the decor is at the level of Parisian brothel and the service is good, if chilly. The food is really really excellent, though. At Savoy the food is a good bit more traditionally French, the portions are bigger and fewer. It is delicious and the execution is really good, but not to the same level. The room is really nice, especially the fireplace area and the service is absolutely the best I've encountered in the US.

I think Bouchon is mediocre, though. I am pretty much alone in that thought.

I would guess if you picked Savoy you could squeeze in a meal at Picasso's which would be an excellent choice.

I like the place but really do not put it in the same category as these other places. Too noisy, too crowded, too neighborhood trendy bistro feeling. I think the breakfast there is nice though.

Btw, indesertum, I have it on good authority Robuchon's other place is pretty good and far less expensive. You could do both the Savoy and his other place although that is a meal of a different nature (or so I hear.)

Bouchon is a completely different experience and meant to be. It's, literally, a bouchon, not haute cuisine. It's Lyonaisse bistro fare.

what's his other place?

thanks for the recs guys. really really appreciate. im saving up money to take my mom out to a nice dinner for post graduation vacation. she's never been to a high end restaurant before and i wanted it to be special.
post #22918 of 25272
$850 for two sure is special. Yikes.

If the service is anything like the home office, then Savoy is one of the most "fun" restaurants you can go to. Your hunch is probably correct.
