A Las Vegas New Year’s Eve at Twist
If ushering in this New Year calls for something memorable, Twist restaurant at Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas is the place to be. The five-star eatery will host renowned chef Pierre Gagnaire, who will create a special New Year’s Eve offering for December 31. With a stable of successful restaurants around the world, like Reflets in Dubai, Gaya in Paris and Sketch in London, Gagnaire knows his way around delicious food—and there is no more perfect time to experience his handiwork.
The New Year’s Eve celebration features two seatings of a four-course ($395) or six-course ($595) menu highlighting items like poached fillet of Dover sole with Fanny Bay oysters; spiny lobster fricassee with lemongrass, rhubarb and mango étouffe; grilled Tajima beef tenderloin; chocolate parfait and clementine granité. Additional wine pairings run $175 (for four-course) and $225 (for six-courses).
