L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon

Chef Jimmy Lisnard is using cranberries to give his foie gras ($51) a seasonal touch. In the restaurant’s French fine dining tradition, he confits them and presents them in a hibiscus syrup, dotted with gold leaf. MGM Grand, 3799 Las Vegas Blvd. South, 702-891-7358, mgmgrand.com

Another sandwich spin on a holiday dinner comes from the Vegas-born chain, but this one does it as a burger. The cranburkey ($10) is a turkey burger patty topped with cranberry yogurt, arugula, tomato and onions, and served on a wheat bun. Multiple locations, skinnyfats.com
