Maurice Graham Henry on the 2009 Michelin Guide
no new "blockbuster" French restaurants on the scale of JoŽl
Robuchon at the MGM Grand or Guy Savoy at Caesar's Palace opened in 2008, so
once again the big event this year the release of the second edition of the
Michelin Red Guide for Las Vegas. Once again,
the gastronomic restaurant of master Chef JoŽl Robuchon, was the only
restaurant awarded the coveted three stars.
Both Alex and Restaurant Guy Savoy received two stars, an exceptional
achievement. We also congratulate Le Cirque, Daniel Boulud Brasserie,
and L'Atelier de JoŽl Robuchon for being recognized with a single star.

JoŽl Robuchon in Las Vegas Ė the Gastroville Review
Milor and I visited JoŽl
Robuchon (formerly JoŽl Robuchon at The Mansion) together the day
the restaurant reopened after a short December break. The meal
was outstanding in many respectsóbut nevertheless was not as good as the meals I'd had there on previous visits.
That said, the restaurant continues to be one of the best French restaurants
in the United States.

successful arrival puts him at the top echelon of the Las Vegas restaurant
scene. Not only because he is a world celebrity, but also because he is the
simplest and most open-minded man you can meet in this industry. He is a
real person, not just a name."

is no question that the opening of this restaurant is nothing short of an
absolute triumph. Here, in far away Las Vegas, JoŽl Robuchon again
establishes himself as the formidable 'Horowitz of the stoves', a true
emperor in the realm of French gastronomy. I also must congratulate the
Executive Chef, Claude Le-Tohic who, as a holder of the Meilleur Ouvrier de
France, is a highly distinguished Chef in his own right. I am also
grateful that someone as gracious and skilled as Mr. LoÔc Launay oversees
the front of the house, for this restaurant provides one of the world's
truly extraordinary dining experiences."
JoŽl Robuchon at The Mansion: the review
by Andrť Gayot
put it simply: thereís only one Robuchon in the world. An evening there is a
unique, unforgettable experience worthwhile the money it will cost. Robuchon
and his mentor Gamal Aziz wanted this place to reach perfection. As far as
it is humanly feasible, theyíve made it. We are glad to bestow on Robuchon
his first 19/20 rating in America."
