Summer Prix Fix at MGM

QueenPeach Jun 24, 2008 10:22 AM

Just spreading the foodie wealth... MGM has their summer restaurant menus up on their site and it's a $60 prix fix at many of their restaurants. I have made a reservation for Nobhill, and the menus for Shibuya and Joel Robuchon also look really good. Enjoy!

    I made reservations for L'Atelier for this Friday 6/27, and we will probably do the Nobhill one on our next trip in August. Menus are good until 8/31. I'll try to report back on L'Atelier and am very curious about how it will be, since we didn't particularly enjoy our prior dinner there about two years ago. I've been one of the L'Atelier naysayers here, but I figure for $75pp it's worth another shot.

      Can anyone else comment on the offerings at Shibuya. Their summer menu more than others seems to include both more options and more overall. Am i wrong to suspect that there must be some compensation (either microscopic portions or less than first quality)?

      In this same vein, are there other fine dining values out there? Any places that have good deals on lunches or other special set menus (either on the stip or not, well have a car). As a bunch of grad students who dont get to vegas that often we'd like to eat some fun, fancy food, but without having to add to our student loan debt to finance it.

        I just returned from Vegas and had the Nobhill summer restaurant menu. It was fantastic! I had the appetizer sampler that came with 2 of each of beef skewer, springroll and crabcakes. They were presented beautifully, like a piece of art and came with a different sauce for each app. For my entree, I had the Cioppino and boy was that amazing! The scallop and lobster were my favorite but it had tons of seafood and a delicious tomato-ish soup poured over it at the table. I tried a friends Chicken something and it was really good, especially the truffled mac n' cheese. 10x better than the truffled mac n'cheese I had a BOA steakhouse the night before. Dessert was creme brulee or some strawberry salad.. and believe me... you must go for the strawberry salad. Creme brulee was nothing special.

        I hope MGM has this every summer!

          Are there any restrictions on the prix fixe menus at MGM? I'm headed to Vegas over labor day, and wanted to try a couple of these restaurants. I'll be traveling solo.

          Are these available at any time? I just wanted to know if the prix fixe menus were only available before or after a certain time. Also, it looks like some of these are served family style, and thus not appropriate for a single diner - is that true? I wanted to try Nob Hill and L'Atelier.

          Thanks.

            Nobhill - $60 per person, no restrictions
            Sea Blue - $60 per person, no restrictions
            L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon - $75 per person, no restrictions
            Fiamma - $60 per person, no restrictions
            Craftsteak - $60 per person, table of two or more
            Diego - $30 per person, no restrictions

            So far we have done the summer menu at L'Atelier. We are doing Nobhill and Craftsteak on 8/25 and 8/27, respectively. L'Atelier was a great experience. Note that we had to specifically ask for the summer menu, it wasn't offered, and I read other reports here of the same experience (not just at L'Atelier).

              Thanks! The menus I saw for Fiamma mentioned "family style", so I had assumed they weren't an option for a solo diner.

                Well, you're right. But it doesn't specifically say that it's for parties of two or more, whereas Craftsteak does. So I guess I don't know for sure, maybe give them a call. BTW the first pasta on the Fiamma menu is really delicious, and the last time we were there (in June) they'd traded the fusilli for papparadelle which was even better.

              Sorry, I just noticed that you said over Labor Day. The last day on the prix fixe is August 31st so that'll take you through the holiday weekend with the exception of Labor Day itself.

                Yup. I knew that. I'll have the 30th and 31st to try two restaurants. Right now, I'm thinking Nob Hill and L'Atelier. Restaurant Week starts on the 1st, though, so I have even more options.

              For you foodies. For Mediterranean/French flavours, which of these prix fixes do you recommend and do we need reservations?

                L'Atelier is the only one that would be Mediterranean/French, IMO. Yes you need reservations. Craftsteak is steak. SeaBlue is seafood. Nobhill is "San Francisco" style food. Diego is Mexican. Fiamma is Italian.
