    Both about the same price for the full tasting menu, but E seems to be the new kid on the block.

    Depends on what type of food you enjoy more.

    e is more science experimenty, while JR is more traditional.

    e you sit at a bar and watch the food get put together, service is more informal. JR the service is formal and the atmosphere is more formal.

    I haven't checked e's prices lately but I thought it was cheaper in the $180-$200 range while JR is $425 for the full degustation menu.

    Very hard choice as the style of food is too different.

    Traditional french vs molecular.

    I agree with Alexanbo's breakdown. JR definitely the more expensive of the 2, but both meals were great in their own way.

    One thing to consider is that if you eat at JR, they'll send a limo from MGM and escort you to the restaurant through the Mansion. For a low-roller, that's priceless :thumbsup:

    After my first visit to é by José Andrés in 2011, I was very impressed. After my second visit earlier this year...not so much. My impression is that é has become less experimental, and less interesting. "Molecular gastronomy" still applies, but there are fewer surprises, and more safe, solid choices. é feels much like a high end version of the main restaurant, as opposed to a place where new things are tried. Don't get me wrong -- it's still very, very good. However, the quality of the food isn't near that at Joël Robuchon. I'd go with Robuchon.
