Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas has unveiled a new white truffle menu, as well as a brand new menu featuring exquisite game, both of which are worth checking out if you find yourself in Las Vegas.
The Las Vegas eatery, which opened in 2006, is chef Guy Savoy's only location in the U.S. The restaurant has two Michelin stars to its name as well as being recently featured as a nominee for a Luxist Awards' Readers Choice award in the best domestic fine dining category.
The restaurant, which is a sister restaurant to Restaurant Guy Savoy in Paris (winner of the Readers Choice Award for Best International Restaurant) is currently featuring a La Truffle Blanche D'Alba menu which begins with Scallop Carpaccio served with a cauliflower puree. The thinly sliced scallops are seasoned simply with fleur de sel, white pepper and olive oil and just warmed under the salamander. The dish is topped with a scallop juice made from reduced scallop fumet, butter and white truffle paste. Fresh white truffles are grated tableside. The next course features a Pumpkin and White Truffle Soup with poached Egg (see gallery below). The soup is cooked in one part chicken stock to one part heavy cream. It is seasoned with white truffle paste and served with a slowly poached egg and freshly shaved white truffle. The presentation is quite the spectacle as it is ladled out of a 25 pound Fairytale Pumpkin, also known as the Cinderella pumpkin.
