Lao Sze Chuan
Address: Palms, 4321 W. Flamingo Road
Status: Opens today
Tony Hu's ode to Chinese food finally opens today, bringing Mandarin, Cantonese, Hunan, and Shanghai dishes. The Mayor of Chinatown out of Chicago already has a Michelin Guide "Bib Gourmand" for two consecutive years and hopes to show Las Vegas why his food has garnered such high accolades.
Lao Sze Chuan at the Palms features more than 200 items on this very long menu that features customer favorites, signature dishes, soups, dumplings, dim sum and hot pots galore. Spicy dishes include the chef's special dry chili chicken for $13.95, mapo tofu for $11.95, boiled beef tenderloin in spicy Szechuan sauce for $14.95 and Tony's chicken with three chili for $13.95.
Chinese beers such as TsingTao, Tiger, and Lucky Buddha pepper the menu alongside specialty cocktails like the Dragon's Eye with Skyy Infusions Dragon Fruit vodka and Calamansi Juice served with dehydrated dragon fruit, as well as the International Waltz with Bombay Sapphire East, Nagomi Lychee Syrup, Funkin Brazilian and Fever Tree Elderflower Tonic.
The stunning rooms, a revamp of the former Little Buddha, are decked out in bright reds, purples, and textiles set off by ceramic sculptures and artwork with room for 150. A patio overlooks the pools.
Lao Sze Chuan is open Sundays through Thursdays from 11 a.m. to midnight and Friday through Saturday from 11 to 2 a.m. The restaurant serves dim sum from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
