Three-star Michelin chef Pierre Gagnaire has opened his first U.S. restaurant, Twist by Pierre Gagnaire, at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Las Vegas. The striking 23rd-floor restaurant includes a dramatic glass staircase, more than 300 gold globes illuminating the space and floor-to-ceiling windows that offer an extraordinary view of the Strip. The menu puts an innovative twist on classic French cuisine, showcasing Gagnaire’s renowned pairing of flavors and textures. For example, signature sea scallops and foie gras from the tasting menu ($185), combine a black olive gelée, sake-apple marmalade and pomegranate seeds; the signature filet of “Never Never” veal is roasted with a dry orange rub, flavored with morel-licorice coulis and paired with Gorgonzola polenta à la plancha ($52). The dessert menu has equally inventive offerings. The signature grand dessert includes five traditional French-inspired delicacies, fruits and homemade chocolates ($24). Twist has an extensive list of wines to complement the menu. Twist by Pierre Gagnaire at Mandarin Oriental; 3752 Las Vegas Boulevard South; 888-881-9367; mandarinoriental.com/lasvegas/dining/twist. Open Tuesday to Saturday, 6 to 10:30 p.m.
