So here’s your Summer Las Vegas dining special! Savor your last taste of summer atop THEhotel at Mandalay Bay at the celebrated Alain Ducasse restaurant miX, with a seasonal menu available through September 21st! The decadent and refreshing three-course menu, which includes new dishes created by Executive Chef Bruno Riou, provides the perfect complement to miX’s breathtaking view of the Strip.
The summer menu at miX offers guests a variety of refreshing choices at each course, including: Starters: A selection of three starters include the savory and sweet Chicken & Coconut Thai Soup, succulent Seared Duck Foie Gras served with dates and lemon confit, or the classic Shrimp Cocktail, which Chef Riou gives a twist with spicy tomato syrup. Entrees: miX’s seafood selections include an emulsion of fish and garlic cream with the Cod Brandade decorated with capers, brown butter and fried parsley. The ‘Au Curry’ Roasted Maine Lobster brings a unique spice to the popular crustacean, which is cooled by a bed of coconut basmati rice. For guests who prefer meat, the juicy, Slightly Glazed ‘NE3’ Pork Belly is enhanced by a spicy “mangavocado” salad.
Sweet Endings: Cool summer treats cap off the meal with a choice between miX’s Candy Bar, a multi-layered creation of thin wafers, chocolate and hazelnut, topped with chocolate ganache; or a slice of sweet and always satisfying Cheesecake accompanied by berry compote and buttermilk sorbet. Does it get any better then that?
A selection of summer wines is available by the glass including the legendary and crisp Sauvignon Blanc from Sancerre and a mild Friulano from Italy. Guests looking for fruitier varietals can choose from the Rosé de Provence, Syrah Vin de Pays des Collines Rhodaniennes or a Napa Valley Merlot.
The summer menu at miX is available for $50 through September 21st. For reservations, please visit miX’s website or call (702) 632-7200. Further information can also be found here.
