It is a rare experience when a culinary adventure begins in a hotel room. That is exactly what happened while staying at the newest Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Las Vegas. This sophisticated urban sanctuary of sophisticated elegance is a magnificent resort destination located in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. The epitome of luxury and innovation, everything here is cutting edge. From the lighting system to the television, and even the curtains, are all controlled by the clock sitting on the nightstand.
The modernism revealed in the guest rooms carried through to the hotel’s cuisine at signature restaurant Twist by Pierre Gagnaire. The award-winning cuisine of this three-star Michelin chef, is Gagnaire’s first restaurant in the United States. The innovative menu infuses the simplicity of classic French cuisine with a contemporary flair.
