Let’s say you just hit it big at the craps table – what do you do next? Do you pop a bottle of Dom? Head to Fashion Show Mall? Buy the most expensive cigar you can find?
If your vice is food and you’re looking to spend your winnings in a delicious way, head to one of these over-the-top spots for one of the most expensive and decadent dishes in Las Vegas and, in some cases, the world.
We’ll start out on the lower end of the price range with this sushi roll from barMASA – a modern Japanese restaurant at the ARIA. Executive Chef Masa Takayama works daily with a new shipment straight from Japanese coastal waters and has turned this delightfully fresh fish into “Masa Toro with Caviar,” an eight-piece roll that will cost you a not-insignificant $240. The roll is made of toro (the fatty part of tuna) wrapped in rice and avocado, topped with California Petrossian Transmontanous Osetra Caviar.
If you’re looking to only splurge a little, try the $48 Wagyu beef soto maki with seared Maitake mushrooms and Australian Grade 10 Wagyu-style beef (add truffles to bring the price to $58).
Location: 3730 S Las Vegas Blvd.
The gourmet sushi trend continues at Sushi Roku in The Forum Shops at Caesars, which turns the fishy dish into an art. California innovation meets traditional sushi with non-traditional ingredients from Latin America and Europe. Sushi Roku’s most expensive roll isn’t on the menu but also isn’t exactly secret: the High Roller Roll is made with lobster tail, Wagyu Kobe beef, tuna, Osetra golden caviar, avocado, asparagus, truffle oil and edible sheets of gold for $250.
And because one sushi roll is never enough to fill you up (no matter how expensive), pair it with shishito Japanese peppers, seabass sliders, or shigoku oysters.
Location: The Forum Shops at Caesars, 3500 S Las Vegas Blvd.
Chef Benjamin Jenkins has brought signature restaurant Michael Mina to the Bellagio to offer contemporary seafood and refined American cuisine with Japanese and French influences. Nothing on the menu is budget-friendly – an 8 oz. strip will cost you around $78 and the lobster pot pie is a hefty $85. But it’s the caviar that really lets you splurge.
The caviar cart costs anywhere from $155 to $455. The service is accompanied by minced red onion, egg yolks, egg whites, chopped chives, and whipped creme fraiche, served with blinis, mini potato cakes, and cut toast. Michael’s Signature Caviar Parfait is a tasty blend of hash browns, egg salad, smoked salmon, whipped lemon crème fraîche, and caviar.
Location: Bellagio Hotel and Casino, 3600 S Las Vegas Blvd.
Everybody loves a good burger, but when your winnings are burning a hole in your pocket and your average diner just won’t do, head over to Burger Brasserie for a $777 version of the classic comfort food. It’s not just the Kobe beef and Maine lobster that drive the price up – this dish is accompanied by a bottle of Dom Perignon Rose Champagne.
The main dish starts with a choice of bun (sesame seed, caramelized onion, aged parmesan cheese, or oven-dried tomato ciabatta) and is finished with caramelized sweet onions, prosciutto, and French Triple Cream Brie, drizzled with 100-year aged balsamic vinegar. It’s served with a BLT salad.
Burger Brasserie also features other mouth-watering creations like the saveur lamb burger and peanut butter and chocolate milkshake.
Location: Bally’s Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, 3655 S Las Vegas Blvd.
If you aren’t a lobster person (if those people exist) but still want to taste one of the most gourmet burgers in Sin City, the Fleur Burger 5000 is the meal for you. Chef Hubert Keller (as seen on “Secrets of a Chef” and “Top Chef Masters”) takes the traditional favorite to a new level with some of the world’s most expensive ingredients. He starts with a Kobe beef patty, then moves onto seared foie gras and truffles on a brioche truffle bun. Still doesn’t sound like it’s worth $5,000? Just wait. The restaurant will deliver a bottle of 1995 Chateau Petrus wine (worth about $2,500) and two crystal stemware glasses to the home of anyone who orders the burger. There is no need to order in advance.
Location: Mandalay Place, 3950 S Las Vegas Blvd.
It’s a far cry from a meal, but where else could you order a $10,000 cocktail than in Sin City? The XS Nightclub at Encore Las Vegas offers this ridiculously expensive drink that comes with equally expensive accessories you’re sure to hold onto. The drink itself is made up of Charles Heidsieck Champagne Charlie 1981 (which runs around $500 a bottle) and Louis XIII de Remy Martin Black Pearl cognac, which wine-searcher.com prices at an average of $21,279 per bottle.
It’s not just the liquid you’re paying for, however. Each order comes with an 18-karat white-gold chain, black pearl pendant, and a pair of sterling silver cufflinks.
Location: Encore Las Vegas, 3131 S Las Vegas Blvd.
