Andre’s Bistro & Bar takes a page out of former famous chef and TV host Anthony Bourdain’s recipes for its 2018 Las Vegas Restaurant Week menu. The throwback menu features dishes based on some of his favorite dishes as well as finding inspiration from Brasserie Les Halles, the New York-based French restaurant Bourdain helmed starting in 1998 that closed in 2017 after filing for bankruptcy.
Bourdain was the author of Kitchen Confidential, star of numerous food and travel TV shows, and one of the food world’s most outspoken voices when he died June 8. He was 61. The chef was working in France on his travel show Parts Unknown when he committed suicide.
For $50 per person, diners can get the three-course prix-fixe menu with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Three Square Food Bank. The menu runs through June 29.
Diners can start with a Caesar salad, Wagyu beef carpaccio, French onion soup with toasted bread and Gruyère cheese, escargot de Bourgogne featuring imported French snails with garlic and herb butter, or seared foie gras with balsamic poached figs.
The diners select dishes such as steak frites, served with 10-ounce flat iron steak with duck fat fries and topped with Béarnaise sauce; duck a l’orange featuring potato Dauphinoise with duck confit and orange duck jus; beer-steamed mussels with Merguez sausage and tomatoes; or lobster thermidor featuring Maine lobster with mushrooms with tarragon, Cognac and lobster cream.
For dessert, diners can pick crème brûlée with vanilla bean custard, caramelized sugar, and berries, or chocolate walnut gateau with a chocolate glazed caramel walnut torte and crème anglaise.
