Fleur de Lys, Mandalay Bay
One of the top 10 fine restaurants on the Las Vegas Strip Hubert Keller has created an interior space and a menu that won’t disappoint, and won’t break your budget.
We recently dined at Fleur de Lys, located in the Mandalay Bay Casino and ordered from the $59.00 Prix Fixe menu. Every dish was spot on. The Truffled Onion Soup with a duck confit ‘dumpling’ starter was nothing short of perfection. The Gently Cooked Salmon (sous vide cooked I suspect) was the highlight of the evening and melted in our mouths. We could find no fault with the decadent chocolate deserts, one a classic chocolate soufflé, the other, a Celebration of Chocolate, a trio of luscious mini-versions of chocolate deserts that were a stunning ending to a wonderful meal. Service was impeccable, yet friendly & comfortable. The only disappointment of the evening was the attractive selection of bread rolls that were so cold and dry they obviously came directly out of cold storage.
Dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine and tip came in at under $200. Reservations are recommended, but weren’t necessary on the evening we visited. There are early dining specials posted on the menu board located outside of the restaurant. The full menu is posted on line at http://www.fleurdelyssf.com/
