It just might be the best table in Las Vegas — it certainly has the best view. But the new chef’s table at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Restaurant Guy Savoy in Caesars Palace doesn’t overlook a dancing fountain or provide sweeping bird’s-eye vistas of the Strip. Instead, the recently opened Krug Chef’s Table, with its floor-to-ceiling glass wall, looks out into the star chef’s kitchen.
Priced at $500 per person, dinner for up to six, including access to the tiny burgundy jewel-box room lit by Krug Champagne chandeliers, is a roughly three-hour experience, with no less than 10 courses. The menu is tailored to your palate and served by chef Julien Asseo (or Savoy himself, when he’s in town) while you look on in awe that anyone could put that much effort into each perfectly balanced, beautiful little bite. Dishes could include concassé of oysters with seaweed and lemon granité, sesame seed and tarragon‐crusted Japanese wagyu and Savoy’s signature artichoke and black truffle soup.
Still the only Krug Room in America, the Krug Chef’s Table honors chef Savoy’s close relationship with the House of Krug, noticeable in the opening glass of Krug Grande Cuvée champagne and the closing glass of Krug Rosé; what you enjoy between those two is a matter for you and the award-winning wine list of more than 2,000 selections, including the largest list of Krug champagnes in the country.
Between courses, enjoy a video that explains more about Savoy’s passion for Krug champagnes from proffered iPads and sign the virtual guestbook (former French President Nicolas Sarkozy was the first reservation). Also, watch your meal be deftly prepared via four cameras installed over the garde manger, meat and pastry stations and the chef’s pass, where Chartron and Savoy inspect every dish that goes out of that revered kitchen.
