Share a plate of charcuterie at the communal table in The Bubble Bar, Caesars Palace, 3570 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas (001 702 731 7286; caesarspalace.com), where lauded Parisian chef Guy Savoy offers bar food of a different order, including his signature artichoke and black truffle soup.

And while you admire the landscape, eat roast scallop with crisp pork belly and tagliolini carbonara or loin of Wicklow venison with pickled red cabbage.

Marco Pierre White has gone straight from 'Hell's Kitchen' to Chelsea football ground to open Marco, Stamford Bridge, Fulham Road, west London (020-7915 2929; marcorestaurant. co.uk).
