At times, Brett and I like to try different food. Or, rather, let me rephrase that, Brett is a foodie and loves to try different food. I am a bit of a foodie, but not as much as him. I took this opportunity to try some french food and write about it.
So, on our last night in Las Vegas, we decided to head to The Mix in the Mandalay Bay Resort we stayed in. We’ve never tried French food, so we wanted to give it a whirl. I ordered Grilled chicken with some veggies. Now, let me be honest, it was way too salty. I think I like to play it safe with American food and trying other foods isn’t always fun for me. Along with that, I have stomach issues, so I’m not always sure what will agree with me and what won’t. I usually stick to grilled chicken and turkey. But, since we were on vackay, I decided to step outside of my comfort zone and try something new! Ugh. No thanks!
As for Brett– who loves food– he ordered some sort of steak with veggies and of course devoured his like there was no tomorrow. Whenever we go out to a restaurant, we rarely get dessert. But, this time, we decided to go all out. He ordered Fudge Souffle and I coconut/lime sorbet and hazelnut crunch chips. OMG– the dessert was out-of-this-world. Soft, creamy and crunchy. I would say the dessert was more delectable than the actual dinner.
We thoroughly enjoyed this nice dinner and the place was gorgeous! We were able to sit near a window and see the view of Las Vegas! It was perfect! We got way closer and enjoyed a damn good meal as well!
A little background on this place as well. It’s located in the Mandalay Bay Resort! According to the website, Culinary artistry with a strong Franco-American influence, edgy lounge style interior design created by Patrick Jouin and a breathtaking view of the Las Vegas Strip: this is the miX, a new venue imagined by Alain Ducasse.
Signature dishes, original creations from Executive Chef Bruno Riou and fine wines from a cellar 5,000 bottles-strong are served in this transparent showcase of a room, crowned in a halo of bubbles made from Murano glass. The ultimate enchantment in a city of unlimited possibilities.
