Any updates on Twist by Pierre Gagnaire? I have a res there for Saturday night but am thinking of switching it for Le Cirque. I'm looking for a romantic restaurant to celebrate an anniversary dinner.
Recent reviews I have read seem to indicate a drop in service level at Le Cirque and I did indeed experience a little bit of ball dropping on Le Cirque's behalf during some e-mail correspondence with them. Nothing serious but that, combined with reports of diners requesting and not receiving tables with fountain views on special occasion dinners and then experiencing aloof service, had me choose Twist for this reservation.
The reports on Twist, however, are mixed but nothing very recent has been posted since the chef change earlier last year other than a few reviews I have read online. I understand the difference in style between these two places and am intrigued by Gagnaire, having dined in and enjoyed his eponymous restaurant in Paris, but I am also concerned Twist does not match the level of his Parisian restaurant in the same way his restaurant Sketch, in London, apparently missed the mark.
I am also informed that Ivo Angelov at Le Cirque will not be managing the FOTH this weekend while I am in Vegas. Not sure if this will mean any drop in service level.
