Las Vegas: Payard at Caesars Palace
Chef Francois Payard and Caesars Palace have teamed to provide a beautiful Patisserie & Bistro at the Casino/Hotel (not in Forum Shops).
I love the huge grandfather "chocolate clock". As the story goes, Chef Francois is a 3rd generation pastry chef and this magnificent time piece represents the history and precision of his works. This 2000 pound, 16 ft high, 25 ft around structure produces 3 truffles every 15 minutes (69,888/yr) and shows off the current time in 9 international time zones symbolizing the "international flavors and profiles that inspire" his creations.
And lets not forget his true calling: chocolate and food. The crepes are fantastic especially with their own chocolate sauce/paste. Also, the chocolate candy and pastries never disappoint! I love the wafer bar!
