Eating and Drinking in Las Vegas

room with a view and some food

Vegas strip view

yeah, it’s Vegas

Those of you who follow me in Instagram saw this view yesterday, but it’s become a sort of bloggy tradition to share our hotel views here, et voilà. I’ll try to get a night shot which is somewhat more spectacular.

We arrived mid-afternoon, walked around a bit in the area, had a happy hour glass and nosh at Bardot…

Oysters and sparkling roséwandered about some more and then went back to get dressed for a late (for us) dinner. Le Monsieur had made reservations at Joel Robuchon as a special anniversary celebration, and it turned out to be probably one of the best meals I’ve had, ever.

Anniversary in Vegas

The hostess was kind enough to offer to take our picture in the beautiful atrium entrance.

We decided the full tasting menu might be too ambitious, and each went with the entrée + plat + migrandes option. Although several people in the restaurant had phones out and were snapping food pics, I just wanted to enjoy the company and the experience. Until they wheeled out the migrandes tray (“tray” is an understatement, this was a major piece of furniture!)…

For those who ordered the tasting menu, this comes AFTER the dessert course!

Who could resist a photo of THAT? We enjoyed several of the selections, which were fabulous and not too filling.

I should also mention the glass of wine I had with my meal, recommended by the waiter…

Chateau Margaux 2009It was mind-blowing. Seriously.

All in all, a lovely 20th Anniversary! We’re going to toddle out the door now to explore some breakfast options, and do a bit more wandering. The weather is lovely, so we may spend some time at the pool later too, and tonight have plans to see a show.

Bon weekend!

    Oh, I love this photo of the two of you . I think this is the first photo we (at least I) have seen of your husband. My wish for you two is every happiness going forward. You look smashingly beautiful in this photo, by the way.

    Such beautiful pictures! Earlier this week I had typed a long comment with suggestions for Vegas (it is a weekend getaway for DH and myself often and we probably are there 4 times a year but my Ipad at my comments! – Joel Roubouchon was on my list as a must do so I am so very happy that you did go! I love the look of the shoes also! Happy Anniversary!

    Chateau Margaux is the wine mentioned in Something’s Gotta Give (my fav movie)…when Jack talks about meeting Diane’s daughter. Oh my!!

    Happy Anniversary. I love that photo, and the cropped pants showing your shoes is a fabulous silhouette on you.

    That is a fabulous photo of two fabulously happy (and gorgeous) people. I love the cropped pants on you with those shoes. I couldn’t have resisted a few (!) of those mignardises — a feast for the mouth AND the eyes Happy Anniversary!

    How fun! I love Vegas .. but in a short time frame .. maybe a 3 day trip – then I’m done 😛

    What lovely photos! I confess that if I lived in LA I’d rather go to SF or Baja California, but I suppose Las Vegas does attract top culinary talents… You make a lovely couple, and both of you so well turned out. But really, ONE glass of wine? I guess we are rather more profligate up here in our frozen waste.

    Cin Cin!!!

    Happy Anniversary Madame et Monsieur La Femme!

    You and your handsome partner look very happy in that photo. Happy anniversary! When I think of Vegas I think of smoky lounges and hub-bub and turmoil, which is not a bad thing, but I see there are lovely corners for quiet and romance as well. No wonder you took a photo of the food “cart”. Wow!
