Looking for unique and delicious places
Hello - I'll be traveling to Las Vegas from LA and am looking for restaurant recs. I'm really looking for something different from what I can get in LA so I'm thinking I don't want ethnically focused restaurants unless it's a really unique place. I normally love ALL ethnic food but I think LA has so much delicious ethnic food that it would have to be truly different for me to travel for. I don't really have too many restrictions other than I'm looking for something that's not prevalent to LA. Thanks.
é by José Andrés is unusual -- and one of the top restaurants in town. Andrés is the same guy behind Bazaar in Beverly Hills, but the two places are very different (and I definitely prefer é). é consists of a small food bar, with a set meal consisting of about 25 courses. Molecular gastronomy rules! The food is both very interesting and very good. Highly recommended. Reservations, usually long in advance, are a must.
Saam at Bazaar is similar to E at Jaleo, 20 or so small bites except that seating is not in front of the chefs.
High-end French can't be found in LA: Twist, Savoy, Robuchon. Note the latter 2 are budget busters, not that E and Twist are moderately priced either.
A price range would be helpful in suggestions.
