Five Golden Spoons
Don’t let the theme-park like location fool you, this restaurant is serious cuisine for serious foodies. The atmosphere is elegant, yet lively, with art-deco inspired fixtures and furnishings complementing a spectacular view of the strip. The staff is warm and attentive, without being intrusive. And, the menu…an absolute delight. You can choose from Chef Joho’s exquisite seven course signature tasting menu or extensive a la carte selection.
I highly recommend the warm lobster salad with garlic braised artichokes. A superb blend of flavors and textures. The roast rack of lamb is also quite wonderful. Cooked to perfection with a crisp herb crust drizzled with a tarragon jus. Make sure you save room for dessert. The soufflés are not to be missed….I recommend either the pistachio or grand marnier…..and the raspberry napoleon is splendid.
Also, don’t be surprised if you’re visited by the Eiffel Tower’s Manager, Laurent Ertle, during your dining experience. He works to make sure that every guest is treated with exceptional care. I’ve now been to the restaurant about a half-dozen times and each experience has been marvelous and memorable. One final note, prices are what you would expect from a fine restaurant.
