What is the best value and any offering a pre theatre menu or equivalent?
Here is a list.. Most of these have the $$$$ rating which is not really indicative of the value but you will spend a good amount of money.. The 1st one on the list (Joel Robuchon ) is probably the most expensive restaurant in Las Vegas but again it depends on what you value most.
Michelin hasn't rated Las Vegas for many a year (maybe 2009?), so there are no Michelin starred restaurants in Las Vegas. Five or six years is a lifetime in the restaurant world. Of those which last earned stars, at least five have closed, and others have gone downhill, while newer places have appeared which would merit stars.
There are other lists out there, but none as well known as Michelin. The best list I know of is by a local food critic; see http://www.eatinglv.com/the-50-essential-las-vegas-restaurants-2014/ . It may not be perfect, but it gives a pretty good feel for what's out there.
The best values will be off-Strip. Raku (Japanese robatayaki and other non-sushi items) is one of the best places in town, at a relatively reasonable price. On-Strip, Estiatorio Milos (Greek) is quite expensive, but offers an early, "sunset" menu for about $50.
I purchased a luncheon event through Vegas
Uncork'd at Guy Savoy. They noted that this is a
Michelin star restaurant. The lunch is 4 courses,
including caviar, black truffle artichoke soup, entree and
dessert. This as well as a Krug champagne pairing, with
some noted vintages being uncorked! It was $330, which
includes tip, and I believe that will end up being
an exceptional value, along with a champagne education!
"They noted that this is a Michelin star restaurant"
Where did you see that claim? The web site description of the event refers to "Michelin-starred chef Guy Savoy," not the restaurant. His Paris location is Michelin starred, for example.
This might be out of date but his Paris location used to have 3 stars while the Vegas location achieved 2 stars in the Michelin Guide.
That is what I read too: 2 stars.
Caesar's website states that, btw.
Michelin stars and value are rarely compatible.
L'atellier at Joel's has some "deals" but I wouldn't use the term value to describe them. It's still very expensive.
The lady and i had the tasting menu at l'atalier a few years back. We thought it was a good value. Also we ordered one wine pairing and had them split it between the two of us, however the waiter gave each of us more than a half pour. That made it a better value. Also whenever we go to somewhere nice, it's "our anniversary" which also tends to increase value
There are some great pre-theater menus at restaurants that had Michelin stars when Michelin was still in Vegas. As noted above, Michelin pulled out of Vegas after 2009. But consider: L'Atelier Robuchon, Guy Savoy, Michael Mina, and Picasso for pre-theater menus that will offer choice, value, and a great experience. Very well worth it.
L"Atelier de Joel Robuchon has pre-theater menus that you can view online with the price.
I had the full tasting menu, and that experience took about two hours for nine courses. I believe the most extensive pre-theater prix-fixe is 5, maybe 6 courses. The best value in terms of courses-to-price ratio is the seasonal tasting menu though.
I paid $240 for the $168 tasting menu, with drink/tax/20% tip.
