Las Vegas – Smoke & Kusshi™ Oysters
Forbes & Globe & Mail: The Toque: Hubert Keller The restaurant: Fleur, and chef-favourite Burger Bar, both in Mandalay Bay. Best Dish: Kusshi Oysters with Margarita Sorbet and Orange Caviar. “It’s a pretty amazing appetizer,” Mr. Keller says. The plump oysters are served atop a mini aquarium filled with colourful glass stones, LED lights and fog-producing dry ice. While encapsulating the essence of Vegas, it also happens to be completely tasty with the briny oysters, cool sorbet and molecular fresh orange “caviar” shining through the smoke and mirrors.
