Our friends recommended for us to try Twist at The Mandarin Hotel in Vegas.  They knew I was a foodie so after having tried some of the dishes I prepared that night at our home, they said that I would definitely enjoy this place.  And I did!

I opted for the 3-course prix-fixe dinner because I had a feeling that it would have other dishes along with it being a culinary haute-cuisine restaurant; and I was right!  We had the amuse bouche and many assorted dishes that went into preparing our festive meal.
