Resorts World Las Vegas on Thursday unveiled its dining and cocktail portfolio, which features modern Mexican cuisine, Cantonese dim sum and coastal Italian fare in its signature restaurants.
The 3,500-room casino/hotel is scheduled to open this summer on the northern part of the Las Vegas Strip.
As reported by Gaming America, last month Resorts World noted it partnered with Zouk Group, a Singapore-based nightlife and lifestyle brand, to create Famous Foods Street Eats, an interactive, 24,000-square-foot, Southeast Asian street food destination.
On Thursday, Vice President of Food and Beverage Bart Mahoney issued a lengthy list of restaurant options, ranging from chef-driven dining and quick-service venues to original concepts.
“Our guests will have no shortage of incredible dining options when they visit the resort,” Mahoney said in a statement. “From fine-dining to more casual venues, we set out to carefully design a culinary program that will offer a diverse roster of food and beverage concepts.”
Resorts World broke down its list of venues by types: Signature restaurants, casual eateries and on-the-go options, and bars and lounges.
The headline signature restaurant is ¡VIVA!, the brainchild of Esquire Magazine Chef of the Year Ray Garcia. It is described as Garcia’s modern take on regional Mexican cuisine.
Also in this category are: Genting Palace, featuring authentic Cantonese cuisine, seafood and dim sum; Kusa Nori, a Japanese bistro with a sushi bar and teppanyaki grills; Brezza, with upscale coastal Italian fare; and, Bar Zazu, a European café.
Both Brezza and Bar Zazu are collaborations of James Beard Award semi-finalist Nicole Brisson and industry veteran Jason Rocheleau.
The casual category takes several popular restaurants from other cities, including Craig's Vegan, a frozen treats joint from Los Angeles, Tacos El Cabrón, Tijuana-inspired Mexican street food from San Diego, Richie Palmer's Mulberry Street Pizzeria of Beverly Hills for pizza by the slice from 90210, and Sun's Out Buns Out, which will offer egg dishes all day, every day.
Bars and lounges will be led by the Dawg House Saloon & Sportsbook, a transplant from Nashville, Starlight on 66, which as the name implies will be on the 66th floor, and Crystal Bar, which will feature cascading crystal-shaped pendants.
Resorts World Las Vegas is being developed by Genting Berhad, a publicly traded Malaysian corporation registered with the Nevada Gaming Commission. The company has affiliated operations in the Americas, Malaysia, Singapore, the United Kingdom and the Bahamas.
