Our acclaimed signature restaurant, Twist by Pierre Gagnaire, is the only venue in the US where you can experience the extraordinary cuisine of Chef Pierre Gagnaire. Owner of several highly-acclaimed restaurants around the world, Chef Gagnaire has garnered three Michelin stars for his eponymous restaurant in Paris.
One of the most artistic and celebrated chefs in the world today, Pierre Gagnaire opened his first and only US restaurant at the Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas to rave reviews in 2009. The accolades continue today and most recently, Twist received the coveted Forbes Five Star award for 2012.
Located on the 23rd floor, the stunning dining room provides the perfect backdrop for Twist’s groundbreaking menu of classic French cuisine with a contemporary edge. Featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and a dramatic glass staircase leading up to a suspended wine loft, the restaurant’s most striking feature is arguably its lighting, which incorporates more than 300 gold globes designed to look as if they’re floating in the air across the ceiling.

Imaginatively created, each dish is designed to delight the senses through the careful pairing of flavours and textures for which Gagnaire is renowned. In the words of Gagnaire himself, “The dishes have to be well assembled, easy to understand and possess eccentricity. And, of course, they have to be delicious.”

Twist also showcases the finest cuts of meat such as the Californian Wagyu Beef Filet, Nebraska Prime Rib Eye and Pennsylvania Veal Chop.
Born in Apinac, France, Pierre Gagnaire is one of the world’s most renowned chefs. His excellent cuisine is often described as modern, although it is deeply rooted in the French cooking tradition.
The son of restaurant owners, Gagnaire began his career in Lyon before travelling the world to hone his craft. In 1976, he returned home to his family restaurant, Le Clos Fleury, where he earned his first Michelin star. He opened his first restaurant in 1981 in Saint Etienne, going on to win two Michelin stars, an achievement he exceeded in 1992 when his second restaurant won three Michelin stars.
Gagnaire moved to Paris in 1996 where he opened his eponymous restaurant, going on once again to win three Michelin stars. Since then, he has become Head Chef and owner of numerous restaurants worldwide including the highly acclaimed Pierre at Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong.
