Wynn and Encore Las Vegas have both opened two exciting new restaurant concepts.
Delilah, a lavish new dining club in Wynn, is housed in the former Alex Restaurant space. The very chic 1920s-inspired restaurant features the Little Bubble Bar seating 34 with comfortable round leopard-padded high chairs that look like individual sofas, art deco-inspired interior, champagne bubble chandeliers, caricatures of celebrities along the wall and many signature cocktails. The bar overlooks the massive dining room below. Instagramers beware, the supper club has a “no photo policy” which we have been told on several occasions, but we have been allowed to take photos for this article.
Descend the twin stairs that lead to a vast dining room with brass palm trees in the center, inspired by the Copacabana. The main dining area features lots of silk, velvet, wood and brass with zebra wood inlaid floors, hand finished plaster ceiling segments, ebony inlays on the walls, vintage cubist art and malachite encrusted tables. There is also a small stage where a small band and often surprise celebrity performances take place with the Sunday entertainment reserved for a five-piece jazz band.
For al fresco dining, the restaurant has two outdoor courtyards with magnolias and twinkling lights. There’s also a secret chef’s table for the big guys and celebrities who value privacy.
Serving modern American cuisine, Delilah offers plenty of tasty dishes including Wagyu Wellington beef, smoked salmon and caviar, surf and turf with ribs and scallops, and fish and chips. The drinks are also very appealing and come with beautiful unique presentations and innovative flavors.
Wynn also recently opened the new Overlook Lounge serving aperitifs, cocktails and spirits in a rich European atmosphere. Located above the Lake of Dreams, the Cocktail Refuge serves specialty libations inspired by the most iconic figures in fashion, cinema, history and mythology.
Encore is also offering a whole new edition to its wide variety of restaurants. Casa Playa, a coastal Mexican concept offering authentic dishes and cocktails, is now located next to the Encore Beach Club.
Executive Chef Sarah Thompson, Wynn Resort Mixologist Marlena Mercer Boarini and Agave Expert Noah Arenstein have teamed up to provide diners with an authentic Mexican seaside experience.
Designed by Wynn Design and Development, Casa Playa transports guests to a Mexican getaway with vibrant colors, two cascading marigold installations, and a mix of festive patterns and textures.
The menu showcases fresh grilled seafood recipes including Mexican blue shrimp ceviche, yellowfin tuna tartare, seafood towers, black truffle tostada, duck confit tamale, octopus with coloradito mole, cabbage. fleur al pastor, branzino with adobo, Yucatan chicken with adobo, whole roasted carnitas and a surf and turf with Wagyu carne asada, lobster, chorizo and ribs.
Later in the evening, you can enjoy live entertainment with rotating DJs.
Their cocktail program includes margaritas, tropical cocktails, and a wide variety of mescal and tequila options.
