The one and only Pierre Gagnaire returns to Twist at Mandarin Oriental March 22-30. Yes, the renowned chef will be in the kitchen at his only U.S. restaurant.

“The culinary style of Las Vegas is unique. The food must not be pretentious; it has to be clear yet not too simple as people have come to expect exceptional dining experiences. Restaurants are part of the essence of the city,” explains Chef Gagnaire.
 
The visit lets Gagnaire unveil his new spring menu. Look for Californian Mishima Waygu beef and aiguillettes of Maine Lobster served with a ragout of ginger, mango, banana and green-apple brunoise. The three-course menu pricing is $105 per person, with an additional $70 per person for special wine pairings. The six-course menu pricing is $189 per person; wine pairing is an additional $106 per person or an additional $161 per person for a grand wine pairing.
