The Willy Wonka Blueberry Balloon at This Michelin Restaurant
Run by famed chef Robuchon, with desserts by pastry chef Salvatore Martone (formerly of New York City’s Four Seasons Hotel and L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon), the French restaurant offers signature dishes like La Langoustine (truffled langoustine ravioli with chopped cabbage) and Le Poulet Fermier (farm chicken and foie gras with wine sauce, chestnut and black truffle gently simmered in a cocotte). But we're here today to talk about La Sphere, a magical globe involving blueberry compote, edible flowers, lemon jam, sorbet, a purple sugar nest and more.
If you happen to have the spectacular luck to eat one of the most stunning desserts we've laid eyes on in, oh, forever—a Michelin-starred restaurant's sphere-shaped sweet inspired by a scene in Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory—we have a hunch your experience isn't going to stay in Vegas. Because you'll be dreaming about it for months after you leave the city, which is where this dessert can be found: at the triple-Michelin-starred restaurant Joël Robuchon at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
