Fleur de Lys to become Tapas Bar

Eating Las Vegas is reporting that Hubert Keller's Fleur de Lys restaurant at Mandalay Bay will close in August. It will re-open later in the year as a tapas bar. Keller and his staff will remain at the new restaurant.

Tapas is becoming a huge trend in Vegas. Many have attributed this to the economy. People are willing to spend a little on appetizer type dishes rather than going for the full dining experience. Personally I'm not a huge fan of the concept. It doesn't really feel like a full meal, and you end up getting so many different things that it can get quite pricey. I like Hubert Keller's Burger Bar though, so I might have to give the new joint a shot if given the opportunity.
