This is the first post in a six-part series titled “Celebrity Chef Dining in Las Vegas.”
Part II: Joel Robuchon (The Mansion)
My favorite thing to do in Las Vegas is to watch the Bellagio fountains. I never miss it. I can watch show after show after show. The magic never loses its touch on me, for some reason. I am just mesmerized by it. Maybe it’s the music. Maybe it’s the majestic heights that these fountains reach (with the help of fireworks). Maybe it’s the way the music is timed so perfectly with the artistic movements of the water.
Last year on the way to Bryce Canyon, we stayed at the Bellagio in a fountain facing room for one night (rates were cheap in the dead of the hot summer on a Sunday night). I just sat next to the window, for about two hours, watching every single fountain show. Every 15 minutes. I enjoyed every minute of it.
Just a few weeks ago, Bryan and I went to Las Vegas again for our annual CES trip. This time, we decided to hit up a bunch of celebrity chef / famous restaurants. I believe all of these restaurants or chefs (except for one) have been featured on the Food Network. The last chef is just super famous. I have interspersed some pictures from these restaurants with other random Las Vegas scenes. Can you guess where I went?
A signature dish at this old world Italian restaurant was fantastic.
Agate stone stairway at the new City Center.
Shrimp tamales with fresh corn!
One of these restaurant gave a box of chocolates “to the lady” to take home.
An eight course pasta tasting showcasing interesting ingredients.
Utter decadence! A gold leaf, caviar, and salmon.
Of course, I leave you with my favorite fountains, at dusk. This series will continue all next week, as I showcase detailed descriptions of Las Vegas!
*thanks to Bryan for taking the fountain pictures as I was too mesmerized to take any photos
