The Cognac Dinner Event of the Year: Joel Robuchon Cognac Dinner, Wednesday April 4, 2018:

Joel Robuchon restaurant in Las Vegas, located inside the Mansion Hotel at MGM Grand, is a culinary jewel. To dine here is an unforgettable benchmark and once-in-a-lifetime experience. The restaurant’s limited seating creates the intimacy one can expect from Joel Robuchon. This is the first – and only – three-Michelin star Guide Winner in Las Vegas and the only Joel Robuchon fine dining restaurant in the United States.

The restaurant setting is intimate; holding only a dozen tables. The atmosphere is as if you’re entering a luxurious house rather than a restaurant; with hanging chandelier and chairs filled with plush royal purple pillows. The restaurant’s world-famous chef and namesake, Joel Robuchon, is known in his native France as “Chef of the Century”.

Once you arrive to the restaurant, the hostess will greet Guests with a cocktail reception at 7:30pm.

Hennessy has created an unparalleled dinner paired with selections from some of their rarest and richest Hennessy Cognacs.

Master Global Ambassador For Hennessy, will serve as your host for the evening, alongside Mahesh Patel, providing insights into The world of Hennessy cognac, history and the overall industry.

The dinner will be arrayed like art objects on gorgeous French porcelain. Every course will be packed with intense flavor and premium ingredients including truffle, caviar, saffron, and foie gras. Rich but not heavy, Chef Robuchon’s creations will delight with adventurous but not shocking delicacies.

Master Classes Our Master Classes are just one of the many features of Nth 2018 that makes this the ultimate luxury whisky event of the year! A true appreciation for fine whisky is only heightened by skilled tutelage from experts in the field. World-renowned brand ambassadors offer their proficiency, experience and expertise to enrich your love, enjoyment and knowledge of premium whiskies. Discussions and tastings are part of this exclusive experience.

Our popular Master Classes are available a la carte with the purchase of a Connoisseur, Companion or as part of the Nth 2018 High Roller Ticket and promise to sell out quickly. Be sure to secure your Master Class selections early to avoid disappointment.
