Fleur Opens at Mandalay Bay

Submitted by on May 26, 2011 – 12:11 amNo Comment

Margarita sorbet, foie gras capuccino, cheesecake lollipops and cotton candy are some of the dishes at Fleur, a new restaurant by Hubert Keller (pictured) that’s now open for lunch and dinner at Mandalay Bay, 3950 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas, Nevada (yes, Road Trips Foodies, it’s in the location of the former Keller venture, Fleur de Lys).

Featuring gourmet small plates packed with powerful bites of flavor, Fleur’s contemporary menu is inspired by Keller’s travels to Spain, Italy, North Africa, South America, Asia, and his homeland France. Fleur’s menu spotlights classic recipes transformed through Keller’s imaginative ingredients, innovative culinary techniques and whimsical presentations.

Fleur is Vegas’ first restaurant to offer cocktails infused with liquid nitrogen, which freezes the beverage into the consistency of sorbet, intensifies the flavors and results in a spectacular tableside presentation; new flavors are offered daily. Another unique element is the Fleur Flights, which present a sampling of the restaurant’s specialty libations, paired by complementary flavors. The Tropical Flight features Cherry Limeade, Sparkling Peach Blossom and the Fleurtini; while the Decadent Flight includes White Chocolate, Chocolate Coconut and Espresso Martinis.

Fleur features one of Las Vegas’ largest collections of Absinthe, prepared traditionally or Russian-style: flambeed before guests’ eyes and served with passion fruit, orange juice and vapors. Fleur also presents an eclectic selection of beer and sake. Tucked away at the top of the restaurant is the secluded wine room. Visible from the main dining area, the room houses more than 3,500 bottles of wine, laced with global influence.
