Lucky Dragon Hotel & Casino is "fully financed," back on a revised schedule to debut by the end of this year and letting the world know with a new website and advertising the first round of 800 job opportunities on the property.
Pitched as the "first casino resort to deliver an authentic Asian lifestyle experience," updates to their planned dining portfolio still show a commitment to their new client base and a bold refusal to cater to an American food court palette.
Executive chefs interested in making the move to the North Strip are required to demonstrate a minimum of 20 years work experience and a mandatory expertise in Cantonese cuisine, "with knowledge of all aspects including but not limited to BBQ, Wok, Dim Sum. Good knowledge of Mandarin and Asian cuisine preferred. "
Lucky Dragon will offer five principal dining destinations, including Jewel Kitchen, described as "the only show kitchen in the city that extends directly onto the casino floor" and imagined as their primary dining hub.
A casual "Night Market" concept "will serve an ever-changing menu of dishes including regional delicacies, fresh and live seafood, dim sum, barbecue, boba tea and more for breakfast, lunch and dinner."
The team's dim sum restaurant will "feature live exotic seafood flown in daily" and for fine dining, the restaurant known as Ming Zhu on early design renderings, will feature 60 seats and include a "private balcony and an extensive wine list."
Reservations for the 204-room hotel will become available "this summer."
