Fleur restaurant at Mandalay Bay is closing June 30, the property announced Thursday. With the closing, a bit of Las Vegas restaurant history passes, too.
The restaurant originally debuted in 2005 as Fleur de Lys, a Vegas outpost of celebrated chef Hubert Keller’s famed San Francisco restaurant with its signature tented ceiling. At one time, the San Francisco original was considered one of the top fine dining restaurants in the country, and it made sense to bring that reputation to Vegas.
By 2010, Fleur de Lys here had evolved into a more casual concept known as Fleur by Hubert Keller, which served a seasonally changing menu of regional French cooking.
