[QUOTE=papa bear;994420]Is LeCellier better than Yachtsman Steakhouse? Ive been to the Yachtsman many times (fantastic fare) and both restaurants are relatively close to each other (a short walk through the international gateway)… So Im just wondering if its really worthy of the hype![/QUOTE]
The real hype of Le Cellier is that it’s one credit while Yachtsman’s is two credits. Since the MYW dining plan was rolled out in 2005, Le Cellier became the place to go, mostly because you could get a $60 meal for one credit. You don’t get that kind of bargain anymore because you no longer get an appetizer and you have to pick up the tip yourself.
What was almost forgotten was Concourse Steakhouse, which was also one credit, but was in the shadow of Chef Mickey’s. But that one closed last year when The Wave opened.
In 2004, I felt Yachtsman’s was the better meal, but in the past few years, LC has gotten a new executive chef and it has supposedly improved.
Unfortunately, it has taken me literally 3 years of trying to get a reservation at LC, so I don’t know how much better, or if it is better, than it was 5 years ago. I’ll have a better answer after Oct 24.
