Vegas, baby. That's where you can find the most luxurious new chef's table in the country.
French chef Guy Savoy and Krug Champagne have teamed up to debut the so-called Krug chef's table at the two-Michelin-starred Restaurant Guy Savoy inside Caesars Palace. We're sure there's a timely Hangover Part III joke in here somewhere.
The six-seat table, topped with a chandelier made of Krug bottles, provides guests an intimate view of the kitchen while they gobble a tasting menu curated to pair just-so with Krug's prestige cuveé champagnes. It's the only Krug table in the US and one of fewer than 10 like it in world.
A menu—of as many as 13 courses!—is based on the best and most seasonal ingredients available. Take for example dishes like a concassé of oysters with seaweed and lemon granité; fingerling potato rocks with caviar and smoked sabayon; and sesame seed and tarragon-crusted Japanese Wagyu; plus Savoy classics like his signature artichoke and black truffle soup, all paired with the likes of Krug Grande Cuveé and Krug Rosé.
Diners will have the company of Olivier Krug, the champagne house's sixth-generation Maison director, and Chef Savoy, who lead the experience virtually via a customized iPad app—which includes a live video feed of the menu creation from start to finish. (Or Savoy will lead it personally if he's in town!) Guests can adjust the camera angle to check out four different stations in the kitchen. Hello, fancy.
Feeling rich? Go check it out—but pace yourself, lest you wake up with any unexpected tigers, babies or dental issues in the morning. (And there's that Hangover joke. Zing!)
