MIX Review

Dress to impress, arrive at 5, and tip into the lounge at Mix for a cocktail first; it's the best vantage point from which to see the stunning view from Chef Alain Ducasse's 64th-floor perch atop THEhotel at Mandalay Bay. Skip the tiny, tightly spaced tables at dinner and reserve a seashell-shaped booth instead. Try a buttery roast cod or the seared scallops with sunchoke emulsion and roasted vermicelli and bacon. Portions are petite and prices are not, but you're also paying for the fine ambiance and great Strip views through the floor-to-ceiling windows. An attentive staff can help you navigate the more than 1,300 nightly wine options, but a glass of bubbly may be the perfect potion to sip underneath the 15,000 or so hand-blown spheres that cascade from the wondrous 24-foot-tall Murano-glass chandelier.

    MIX Review

    What can one not say about Mix? The view from the top of THE Hotel at Mandalay Bay is fantastic. The view inside is fantastic. And the cusine by Alain Ducasse . . . well I've not had a disappointment in several visits. Mind you this is not the best view available at a Ducasse Restaurant. The Jules Verne on the second deck of the Eiffel Tower in Paris wins that one hands down. Mix comes in a close second. But what you do get is the stellar cusine of Ducasse at a fraction of what you would pay at one of his Paris or Monte Carlo locations.

    The serving portions are probably the smallest in a town known for excesses. They're way larger though than what you would see in Ducasse's European establishments however and our waiter advised that they had to increase them from when they first opened.

    The restaurant also includes a huge bar that is quite separate from the dining area. There is also outdoor seating available for the not too faint of heart.

    One of the town's best.

    Even if you don't go for dinner... you MUST go to experience the night time 'view' [have drinks at the bar]. And in our experience, the restaurant lives up to the setting. Mix and Michael Mina [at Bellagio] are our favorites.
