Dissolving the boundaries between kitchen and dining room, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon at MGM Grand lets guests observe chefs creating their meals at bar-style seating.


This bistro is at a more approachable price point than the Joël Restaurant next door. Signature dishes include the foie-gras-stuffed free-range quail ($25) and steak tartar ($41), garnering a AAA Four Diamond award and one Michelin Star.


The menu of small tasting portions includes carpaccio ($33), langoustine fritter ($23) and duck ($39) served with executive chef Steve Benjamin’s attention to detail, like quail egg and laurel accents. From the à la carte menu, guests can enjoy a Maine lobster salad ($49), caramelized kampachi ($57), smoked salmon ($31) or a 12-ounce Wagyu-beef rib eye ($97).


The desserts (all $15) include caramelized bananas, green chartreuse soufflé with pistachio ice cream and orange infused with caramel and milk chocolate mousse, and an assortment of sorbets.


The dining room seats 33 at the counter and 25 for table dining, and reservations are recommended. The minimalist and modern interior was designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon, who also designed Robuchon’s original restaurant. — K.C.
