Las Vegas: L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon

I finally finished uploading my photos from Las Vegas last month. I was going to write about our NYEE dinner at “chef of the century” Joël Robuchon’s restaurant at MGM Grand, but Ly beat me to it! He also did such an excellent job describing each dish I’m just going to link him: Homemade Food Reviews: L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon.

Needless to say, it was a pretty amazing experience. A photo says a thousand words, but in this case, it hardly does the meal justice:

- Though modest to some, for the first time Ryan and I both hit 50K miles/each.
- We spent 3 astonishing weeks in the South Pacific for our honeymoon <3.
- San Francisco and Chicago continued to be hot spots for my business travel.
- I actually traveled more for leisure than work, especially due to my fall sabbatical.
- Over the last 3 years I’ve been on 78 trips–and I’m so not tired yet!
- That all said, I’m now hankering to leave the continent again (exceedingly so).

So here’s to what 2010 holds. Merry travels, all!
