L'atelier De JoËl Robuchon @ Mgm Grand Hotel Las Vegas Reviews
fantastic food at L'atelier de Joel Robuchon Oct 16, 2009
In the MGM Grand, this French restaurant was booked and we went without reservation as they opened for the evening and had to sit at the bar, which turned out great anyway. We had a view of the kitchen, and could see the dishes being prepared. They had a 3 course early bird menu which was only $39, we opted for the $75 tasting menu of 5 courses. Although expensive, the food was definitely delicious and beautifully presented. (tasting menu changes all the time, what's on the web now is not what we had then). We thought it was one of the best dinners we have ever had. You should make a reservation though to avoid being turned away! See the photos for the presentation of the dishes!

L'Atelier -- an artist's studio -- is here referenced as dynamic interaction between kitchen and dining room, chef and diner. It is a distinct departure from the posh cuisine featured at Robuchon at the Mansion. At L'Atelier (pronounced la-tel-yea) dishes are simple, straightforward and utterly appealing.
