Restaurant Guy Savoy: The Las Vegas Home of Nouvelle Cuisine
When searching for a taste of the City of Lights in the City of Sin, look no further than Restaurant Guy Savoy. The Las Vegas eatery is chef Guy Savoy's only location in the U.S, and with two Michelin stars to its name, it's also a nominee for a Luxist award in the best domestic fine dining category.
At the tender age of 27, Savoy opened his first Paris restaurant in 1980. Seven years and two Michelin stars later, he moved into the current Restaurant Guy Savoy location on Rue Troyon (a Luxist Awards nominee for Best International restaurant). Savoy also helped to establish Nouvelle Cuisine, a lighter approach to French cooking. By the turn of the century, Savoy was one of the world's most famous chefs; he opened his Las Vegas location in 2006.

The menu at Restaurant Guy Savoy in Las Vegas includes some of the chef's signature dishes from Paris, namely artichoke and black truffle soup and oysters in ice gelée. For those with the most decadent of tastes, there's a caviar sampler on the menu, along with a host of other culinary delights. Order the 10-course Menu Prestige, the 90-minute TGV tasting menu, or dine à la carte-the fare is delectable either way.
For an ultra-luxurious experience, reserve the Krug Room, a private dining room where guests can enjoy dishes paired with the finest vintages of Krug bubbly (a Luxist nominee in the best champagne category). Just be sure not to drain your bank account at the poker table before dinner-a meal in the Krug Room will set you back $750, nearly three times the cost of the Menu Prestige.
