Monday Mise en Place: What Was Once 'Fleur de Lys' Will Now Be 'Fleur by Hubert Keller'

Behind These Walls A Restaurant Gets Reborn. Fleur by Hubert Keller is Coming

The renovations at the Fleur de Lys space at Mandalay Bay continue.  Construction is said to be “slow,” but I’m being told that the reborn restaurant is still slated to have a soft opening in mid-December with a blowout official grand opening [...]
