Le Cirque Chef's Menu

Headed to Vegas for a work trip in late April and a Tuesday night is our "free night". We have some free time during the day and are already planning to venture to Lotus of Siam but for our dinner on our own we were thinking of the chef's menu at Le Cirque (6 course). Any feedback???
Would have loved to try e but not open on Tuesdays :-(

      I'm having dinner at Le Cirque in a few days, but based on the current menu available on-line, I am planning to go with the a la carte menu and order 2 apps (foie gras and uni pasta) and the lobster for my main course. Undecided about dessert. Le Cirque has become my favorite restaurant in LV. I did the Chef's Tasting menu last year and loved it.

      Another favorite of mine is Sage at the Aria. I did the Chef's Tasting menu and loved it more than my dinner at Joel Robuchon. I'm dining at Sage next week too.

    2. Gregory Pugin has left Le Cirque. How was your meal ellenost? Any news on where Pugin is working now?

        Don't know where Chef Pugin went, but the new chef at Le Cirque came with Pugin from Veritas in NYC. He did a great job! I had a specially created tasting menu that consisted of langoustine carpaccio; crab salad; sautéed foie gras; Arctic char; duck breast; chocolate sphere; baba au rhum; and mignardises. I was so full that I barely touched the baba, and had all of the mignardises boxed up. The FOH staff were all wonderfully attentive. I think Le Cirque will continue at its very high level.

          That's great news. This is by far my favorite restaurant in Vegas. Planning on going back in the next couple months.

            Le Cirque has become my favorite restaurant in LV too!

              What does the bill typically run there for two, assuming one modestly-priced bottle of wine?

        2. re: deprofundis

          Any more current reviews post-Pugin? Planning a visit late summer and thinking about fine dining options.

          Some trips to Vegas I'll skip the more upscale fine dining and just happily hit up Lotus of Siam and Raku. A lot of restaurants have sister restaurants in NYC (where I'm from), so I generally look for food I can't get in NYC, or generally outstanding no matter where you're from.

            The food and service at Le Cirque LV is vastly superior to Le Cirque NYC (I'm from NYC too). In fact if Le Cirque NYC was as good as Le Cirque LV, I'd have a new favorite restaurant in NYC.
