Renowned chef Pierre Gagnaire will work out of his restaurant, Twist by Pierre Gagnaire, at Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas from March 27 through April 3 to refine and launch his new spring menu. He will collaborate with Twist Chef de Cuisine Ryuki Kawasaki to produce the new menu and will be on hand to visit with guests at the restaurant while they dine. Twist by Pierre Gagnaire is located on the 23rd floor of the hotel and features floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Las Vegas Strip. A three-course menu is offered at $120 per person, four-course menu pricing is $145 per person and a seven-course menu is $205 per person.
Born in Apinac, France, in 1950, Gagnaire made his reputation by gathering several Michelin stars at his restaurant in the industrial city of Saint Etienne in the 1980s. He moved to Paris in 1996 after a painful bankruptcy and proceeded to stage a remarkable comeback with startlingly inventive modernist cuisine. At the beginning of the 21st century, he began a string of restaurant launches in London, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Seoul, Dubai, Las Vegas and Moscow. His collaboration with the noted molecular gastronomist Hervé has resulted in two award-winning cookbooks.
