Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas, prominently situated at the entrance of CityCenter, the extraordinary new urban resort destination, will introduce the award-winning cuisine of three-star Michelin Chef Pierre Gagnaire at the hotel’s signature restaurant, Twist by Pierre Gagnaire. Opening in December 2009, Twist will be Gagnaire’s first restaurant in the United States. The innovative menu will infuse the simplicity of classic French cuisine with a modern spin, relying on a pairing of flavors and textures for which Gagnaire is known.
Located on the 23rd floor of the hotel, the Adam D. Tihany designed signature restaurant, seating 74, will feature a dramatic, glass staircase leading up to a suspended wine loft. More than 300 gold globes will illuminate the space, appearing to float in the air across the ceiling. Elevated tables will allow every guest a view from the floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the Las Vegas Strip.
Also located on the 23rd floor with windows overlooking the spectacular Vegas skyline, the 82-seat Mandarin Bar will redefine Las Vegas nightlife. Appealing to locals as well as leisure and business travelers alike, this chic venue will provide an elegant respite from the bustling bars of the Las Vegas Strip. Decorated with plush furnishings, the Mandarin Bar will offer creative snacks, and an extensive cocktail menu. A team of molecular mixologists will be available to develop customized concoctions upon request, and there will also be a separate VIP room, available by reservation.
In addition to Twist by Pierre Gagnaire, diners will have the option to enjoy several other dining options within Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas including Mozen Bistro, an all-day contemporary kitchen theater with a sushi bar, noodle bar and rotisserie. The cuisine at Mozen Bistro will reflect the best of Asia along with American classics. The property will also feature an intimate 30-seat Tea Lounge, serving a wide menu of teas and High Tea rituals; a Poolside Café offering market-fresh fare, smoothies and sorbets; and the street-level, Amore Patisserie, with a selection of freshly baked pastries and cakes as well as sandwiches, coffee, teas, hand-made chocolate and gelato.
