Guests are greeted on the ground level of the Paris Las Vegas Eiffel Tower Replica by an engaging restaurant concierge who is quick to say that this restaurant is the best choice for French food in the sumptuous city.
The glass elevator doors open on the 11th floor to the busy kitchen with kinetic chefs preparing classic French dishes. Chef Jean Joho prepares updated French classic seafood dishes, rack of lamb and beef Wellington which follow exquisite starters; the blue cheese soufflé nestled in greens and the fresh asparagus soup.
It’s not surprising that the restaurant was nominated for “Best Outstanding Restaurant” by the James Beard Foundation and Chef Joho was Bon Appetite’s “Chef of the Year”. While enjoying the gourmet meal100 feet above Las Vegas Boulevard, diners are treated to spectacular views of the Bellagio water fountain show.
Our dinning table was snug against the window, allowing for unobstructed views of the water show and I was mesmerized by the large selection of soufflés flavors. Dessert soufflés are my favorite and I decided on pistachio—which exceeded my expectations.
Visitors can sit at the bar and order a soufflé until the restaurant closes, which was temping because I wanted to try the caramel one.
