On and Off the Strip: The Mayfair Supper Club and more
On the Strip: The Mayfair Supper Club
There are a lot of things vying for your attention at The Mayfair Supper Club (Bellagio, 702.693.8876). The jazzy and electric live entertainment is a captivating force but it’s certainly hard to compete with the views of the iconic Fountains of Bellagio. And then there’s the wagyu prime rib being carved from a tableside cart, combining vintage Vegas-era service with a modern approach to fine dining.
All three of those elements define the innovative Mayfair experience, but while the old-school vibes are strong, the menu offers dramatic range. Start with a mammoth chilled seafood platter or opt for a pristine plate of raw salmon with grapefruit, pomelo and rice pearls. Oysters Rockefeller are done the traditional way while fried onions lend a crisp and savory note to the steak tartare. The truffle fettuccine is rich in every way possible, but for a lighter take, check out the vegetable pot pie, soulful and yet fresh with a generous assist from shaved black truffles.
There are a lot of different ways to dine at the Strip’s newest hot spot. –Brock Radke
Off the Strip: Tres Cazuelas
In a space adjacent to the legendary Sand Dollar Lounge, former Marché Bacchus general manager Angelo Reyes has opened Tres Cazuelas (3355 Spring Mountain Road No. 35, 702.370.0751) as an ode to his culinary upbringing, ranging from his father’s Spanish roots to his time in Mexico City. The menu is as eclectic as the gregarious restaurateur himself. On weekdays, a trio of ever-changing lunch specials are offered, and later in the week is a particularly good time to visit as artisanal mole dishes are available on Wednesdays and Thursdays. The mole poblano is particularly memorable while the Friday chile relleno presentation is straightforward and fulfilling. –Jim Begley
