SquareMeal Review of
Chez Mal at Malmaison
Chez Mal mixes French brasserie cool with beefy New York glamour, combining urban style with a touch of Moulin Rouge and a sprinkling of Las Vegas glitter – think exposed brick walls, shiny surfaces, flashy fabrics, neon lights and a pumping soundtrack, plus daily specials advertised on a model of the classic Nevada Stardust Casino sign. Prime-grade USDA strip steaks are naturally the main event, cooked as you want them and served with slow-roasted onion and soubise purée, fries and special steak sauce. Otherwise, the menu trawls its way from crab tacos, beef carpaccio and Goan-style mussels to grilled lobster, American BBQ ribs and roast cod with shellfish vinaigrette. After that, go for calorie overload with lemon meringue cheesecake or sticky toffee pudding. To drink, expect quirky ‘Malchemy’ cocktails, ice-cold beers and a 100-bin wine list with everything available by the glass or carafe.
