There are 2 seating times (5:30 PM & 8:30 PM) with only 9 seats at a counter in an intimate room. It all started with getting the golden tickets in the mail! We heard from other guests that the waiting list to é is months long. :O
é is in the Cosmopolitan hotel and is located in a private room behind Jaleo (serves authentic Spanish cuisine ). Guests arrived by 5:30pm and we all wait at a communal table at the front of Jaleo.
It was interesting to watch the chefs preparing the dishes and listening to the explanations of the molecular gastronomy techniques they were using and finding out the food origins.
A brilliant mini PB&J sandwich with lemony meringue bread and foie gras jelly. This is my favorite!
L: Hokkaido uni topped with melt in your mouth Lardo Iberico.
R: Crispy cream puff topped with ham.
Dungeness crab meat with a rich vial of crab broth and some crunchy bread crumbs on the side for more flavor and texture.
I really like the flavor of the braised beef cheeks. It’s so tender and served with liquid-filled potato gnocchi.
