2012 Top 40 Restaurants in the U.S. " Twist by Pierre Gagnaire

Pierre Gagnaire
Las Vegas, NV

There's a lot of dazzle in Vegas, but Pierre Gagnaire's sparkling jewel box perched on the 23rd floor of the Mandarin Oriental spins it with inimitable style. A pioneer of French fusion cuisine, Gagnaire puts a twist on classic Gallic fare at his only U.S. restaurant. Deer cooked with hyssop and juniper, langoustines five ways, and sour red cabbage ice cream are only a few of the imaginative and intriguing delights that may be found at this spectacular venue.
