L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon

A recommendation from a new friend lead me here…There was some kind of quote like “if you eat nothing else in Vegas, eat their mashed potatoes”. Okay, that may not be right since my mind is running on too little of sleep! So, onward.

What a FABULOUS way to end the weekend – and a great place to dine alone (I am sure it would be fine with friends, too.) I choose the five course menu selection…that started with a refreshing palate cleanser (tomato, avocado and a little Piment d’Espelette).

First course: Cheesy, mussel soup (another dose of Piment d’Espelette and a lemon oil “float”) complete with homemade croutons.

Second course: Scallop wrapped in phyllo dough and momentarily deep fried on a bed a greens and pesto

Main course: Salmon crusted with sesame seeds, cooked to perfection with a side of Pommes Purée (mashed potatoes made in a butter churn, possibly more butter than potato). And even better than the recommendation!

Cheese course: Paired with delicious country breads, the three cheeses included a blue, a sharper cheese and a soft goat cheese. FABULOUS!

Dessert: A series of five tarts. The order on the plate: Chocolate Fudge, Pear, Chocolate Mousse, Raspberry, Cinnamon. The cinnamon was so reminiscent of Grandma Dorothy’s milk pie. All were delicious BUT the combination of Chocolate Mousse and Raspberry was complete HEAVEN!!!
