Win big in Vegas? Treat yourself to one of these swell wine dinners

Here’s what to do when you win big in Vegas: reserve the new Krug Chef’s Table at Michelin two-star Restaurant Guy Savoy in Caesars Palace. For two to six guests, the multiple-starred French chef will create a menu of up to 13 courses paired with Krug Grande Cuvée and Krug Rosé.

Guests watch their meal being prepared in the kitchen via a live video feed and “enjoy the company of” Olivier Krug and Guy Savoy via an iPad application.

The surroundings are certainly first class. The table is lit by a chandelier constructed from Krug bottles and both the Bernardaud china and the Champagne glasses are embellished with the Krug crest.


Heady stuff, but what’s all this going to cost? $500 per person. For more information and reservations, visit Restaurant Guy Savoy or call (702) 731-7286.

At that price, the Seghesio Family Vineyards Chef’s Summer Dinner Series in Northern California seems like a bargain at $200, and it could be more relaxed fun. The idea is a dinner in the vineyards paired with wines from the estate’s library. The meal is prepared by executive chef Peter Janiak, an alum of Boulevard in San Francisco.

Limited to just 50 guests, the first dinner of the series is Saturday June 8 and is hosted by winegrower Pete Seghesio. Other dinners, each in a different Seghesio vineyard and AVA, are scheduled for July 13 and Aug. 10.
