The revamped restaurant now focuses on gourmet small plates inspired by Keller's travels to Spain, Italy, North Africa, South America, Asia, and his homeland of France. "At Fleur by Hubert Keller I'm taking guests on a journey to different countries through small plates that are really well prepared, with great flavor," says Keller. "My new restaurant features several different moods and dining experiences. Guests can watch sports and enjoy a beer in our circular center bar, take in the hotel action from our patio dining, sip cocktails in the lounge, enjoy an elegant dinner in our main room or have an exclusive meal or celebration within our semi-private cabana dining spaces."
Keller's small plates are displayed in a way to highlight the presentation and flavors: Kushi oysters are topped with margarita sorbet and orange purée are served on an illuminated block of dry ice ; maple glazed pork ribs are hidden beneath a smoke-filled glass dome that when lifted and the Wagyu "Lava Rock" is served with tender slices of wagyu beef and cooked to guests' preference on a sizzling hot lava rock, then drizzled with wasabi-lime sauce. Keller pays homage to his appearance on Bravo's "Top Chef Masters"with his competition-winning "In The Shower" Mac & Cheese made with lobster and brunoise vegetables.
