For the fifth consecutive
year, Andre’s Restaurant & Lounge at
Monte Carlo and Alizé at the Top of the Palms will participate in
Las Vegas Restaurant Week Aug. 29 through Sept. 11 by offering multi-course,
prix-fixe menus to benefit Three Square Food Bank.  A portion of each meal sold during Restaurant
Week will be donated to
Three Square to help in its fight to end hunger in Southern Nevada.

“We feel privileged to be
able to help raise awareness of the problem of hunger through Restaurant Week,”
said Andre Rochat, chef and owner, Andre’s and Alizé.  “Our guests can feel good knowing they are
not only enjoying a memorable meal at a great value, but also a portion of
their cost is going directly to this worthy cause.”

At Andre’s, guests opting for
the Restaurant Week menu will enjoy five courses, beginning with an
amuse-bouche of Chilled Consommé of Spring Chicken with fresh turmeric followed
by Heirloom Tomato Salad with burrata cheese, caviar, melon and spring garlic
vinaigrette and Globe Artichoke Soup with summer truffle mousse and orange
oil.  For the main course, guests can
select one of four offerings: Grilled Ribeye Cap with Anna potato, long bean
and natural jus; Berkshire Pork Duo with herb spaetzle, spring onion and
truffle jus; Scottish Salmon with jasmine rice, shrimp yellow curry and lemon
grass glaze; or Free-range Chicken with sweet corn and poblano ragoût with foie
gras mole.  Concluding the dinner will be
a dessert of Grilled White Peach served with almond milk sorbet and vanilla
bean jus.

Alizé offers a three-course
menu for Restaurant Week, starting with a choice of first course: chilled
potato and leek vichyssoise with summer truffles, chives and orange zest; Angus
beef carpaccio with watercress and parmesan cheese, basil pesto and toasted
baguette; or marinated heirloom tomato salad with cantaloupe, mozzarella cheese
and balsamic vinegar.  Guests will choose
from three main courses: sautéed Irish salmon with truffled potato puree, jumbo
green asparagus and Béarnaise sauce; braised beef short rib with gruyère potato
mousseline, sautéed spinach, braised shallots and pinot noir sauce; or
pan-seared chicken roulade with apricots and pistachio, roasted Idaho potato
galette, haricots verts, toasted almonds and truffle jus. Capping the meal will
be one of two dessert selections:
Champagne poached
nectarine with a lemon cream and blueberry sorbet or Andre’s apple tarte tatin
with pignoli Florentine and Calvados ice cream.
