After 42 Years, Pamplemousse Le Restaurant Is Up for Sale

Amelinda B Lee

Preservationists, restaurateurs, and fans of classic Las Vegas dining take note; Pamplemousse Le Restaurant, the oldest surviving French restaurant in Las Vegas is officially up for sale.

Asking potential buyers not to bother the restaurant directly, but learn more from brokers Marcus & Millichap, the combined land and 2,051-square-foot restaurant are listed for $1,365,000. Built in 1952, the sale includes an adjacent residential building and all interior furniture, fixtures, and kitchen equipment.

Not mentioned, if a future owner can continue with the name or menu launched by owner and chef Georges La Forge in July 1976.

Located close to the former Sahara, now the SLS, the vintage environment has been able to lure a steady stream of conventioneers and loyal locals to its romantically lit “French cottage” interior, praised as a “unique atmosphere” by chef Rick Moonen.

Staffed with tuxedo-clad waiters, menu highlights include La Forge’s preparations of foie gras, escargot, osso bucco, baby wild boar, duck breast, and hot lava cake or chocolate souffle for dessert.

The third oldest existing Las Vegas restaurant still remains in business and continues serving Tuesday to Sunday from 5 to 10 p.m. It has yet to publicly announce the sale.
