In Beijing, family meals are part of the culture—social events in which everyone gets to try a little bit of everything. Michael Chow brought his idea of the concept to American shores 41 years ago, and he’s finally bringing his legendary namesake restaurant to Las Vegas, making it one of only seven on the planet.

The first thing you’ll notice at Mr. Chow is the design and décor, featuring living room-style furnishings in an intimate setting—and all handled by Chow himself. The dining area, accessed through a private elevator, seats 277 and affords excellent views of the Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis.

Bring your appetite and a large group—Mr. Chow focuses on “communal-style” dining, with a menu highlighted by such delights as Beijing duck, green prawns, Mr. Chow Noodles, squab with lettuce, chicken satay and turnip puffs—not to mention exceptional cocktails like the Chow-lini. But Mr. Chow also offers other memorable sights, including a nightly “Noodle Show,” which demonstrates how the restaurant’s hand-pulled noodles are made, and the champagne trolley, which rolls out at the beginning of your meal.
