Want to mix some Vegas partying with some healthy eating?
National Vegetarian Month kicks off October 1. To mark this occasion and increase awareness of the variety of delicious meat-free options, Alizé at the Top of the Palms is offering a special, six-course vegetarian tasting menu. Featuring mouth-watering meat- alternatives that are both tasting and fulfilling, the special menu is priced at $55 per person. Even more appetizing is $5 of every vegetarian tasting menu purchased will be donated to Nevada Cancer Institute.

“There are so many wonderful and tasty vegetarian options,” said Chef Rochat. “Many of the vegetables featured are perfect for the season and it makes for a great culinary adventure.”

Chef Rochat’s special six-course vegetarian tasting menu features field greens and herbs delicately wrapped in cucumber with balsamic vinegar and hearts of palm. Next, enjoy a chilled tomato gazpacho with basil ratatouille, crispy tomato and basil crisps. Then experience a baked vegetable pot au feu in a crisp puff pastry shell followed by potato and leek “risotto” with Chanterelle mushrooms and Perigord truffles. For a satisfying main course, enjoy fall vegetables four ways featuring spice crusted tofu with Piquillo pepper purée, curried cauliflower with golden raisins and pine nuts, black truffle risotto and Tagine glazed vegetables and dried fruits. For dessert, choose from Crème Brûlée or Soufflé Du Jour or Mascarpone Tiramisu.
