L’Atelier is the (slightly) more casual version of Chef Joël Robuchon’s two restaurants at the MGM Grand. At L’Atelier, the dining experience is kitchen-side and interactive, but still feels high-end. So you can get the steak, while your friend gets the burger.
Dish: For something more casual, (but still plenty fancy) Le Burger is made with beef and foie gras, then topped with caramelized bell peppers.
Joël Robuchon, Head Chef: “The burger is a fun take on traditional American food culture, with a few important twists. After all, I couldn’t open a restaurant in America and not make a burger! The beef marries one of my favorite culinary cultures, Japan, for which I have a tremendous amount of respect, with the flavors more commonly associated to French cuisine. The presentation is something new to diners in my restaurants, and pushes us away from a traditional to a more innovative cuisine, which is exactly what L’Atelier is for me.”
