Six Different Ways To Enjoy Caviar In Las Vegas

Las Vegas, the city that brought you $47 caviar tacos (Rose.Rabbit.Lie. at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas) and a $45 caviar lobster roll (Luke’s Lobster at the Fashion Show Mall), is a destination where anything goes. It’s the kind of place where you can order wagyu to a stack of pancakes and think, “I should put some caviar on that.”

Pleasing palates since the 10th century, caviar remains one of the world’s most expensive delicacies so it’s not too surprising that the flavorful fish eggs are served in abundance here. From classic to non-traditional, here are six haute spots in Las Vegas for making your caviar dreams come true.

Acclaimed Restaurant Guy Savoy goes all out when it comes to caviar. The Forbes Five-Star, AAA Five Diamond restaurant has an entire elegant room devoted to this luxurious treat. Under the leadership of Executive Chef Julien Asseo, guests choose from an a la carte menu of items including an ounce of Royal Osetra ($235) or Imperial Golden Osetra ($385) with condiments. Guy Savoy also offers a seasonal tasting menu for $170 per person with oysters, caviar, dessert and a glass of Krug Champagne.

Speaking of Champagne and caviar, Chef Rainer Becker’s Zuma offers an attractive pairing of these two gourmet delicacies. The experience includes a beautiful presentation of a half bottle of Krug Champagne, 30 grams of fresh, sustainable Nordic Imperial Caviar and garnishes like fresh chives, yuzu tofu puree, matcha seaweed rice cracker and fresh wakamomo (baby Japanese mountain peaches). Only in season from November to April, the fine freshwater Findland roe is a true winter treat. Its saltiness and buttery mouthfeel pairs perfectly with the brioche taste of the Champagne. Cost is $125 per person (with a minimum of two people).

Fried Chicken and Caviar might not sound like a traditional pairing, but celebrity chef David Chang has a habit of mixing it up. Inspired by a similar dish from Chef Wylie Dufresne’s former Manhattan hot spot WD-50, the Fried Chicken and Caviar at Momofuku includes two chickens (fried whole and carved), served with truffle crème and ginger pancakes, then paired with eight ounces of Smoked Trout Roe ($488) or Golden Osetra ($1,688).

He works closely with top-notch producers to bring the freshest seafood to the desert of Las Vegas. His Traditional Royal Caviar Service includes a la carte Golden Osetra ($350), Russian Osetra ($250) and Kaluga ($175). Guests may also opt for Michael Mina’s Caviar Parfait, a concoction with smoked salmon, crème fraiche and egg mimosa. Mina came up with the idea for the parfait on his honeymoon, creating the special breakfast for his new wife with all her favorite foods.
