Chef Paul Liebrandt captivates wherever he goes. Maybe it’s because of the two Michelin stars he earned at New York City’s Corton. Maybe it’s because he’s often recognized from the 2011 documentary A Matter of Taste.
Or maybe the fine dining world is just waiting for Liebrandt’s next restaurant project, since he’s been working as a consultant. He recently turned up at Bellagio to participate in chef Roy Ellamar’s Snackwagon Takeover mini-popups at Harvest.
He’s back this week, cooking a one-night-only, $275 prix fixe dinner at Le Cirque. The menu will feature foie gras rouge, sunchoke ravioli with aged gouda and black truffle gelée and Soufflé Louis XIII. (There will be two seatings for the dinner—5:30 and 9 p.m., for which reservations can be made by calling 866-906-7171.)
Maybe it’s just another amazing, only-in-Las-Vegas culinary experience. Or maybe a chef who snagged a three-star review from The New York Times at age 24 doubling down at Bellagio could mean something more? Paul Liebrandt Guest Chef Dinner at Le Cirque at Bellagio, January 20.
