Fancy New Italian Seafood at Costa di Mare and a Rare Scotch Cart at Strip House

A wrap up of the smaller news you may have missed

Costa di Mare
Barbara Kraft

WYNN LAS VEGASCosta di Mare just unleashed a new hard-to-find seafood program that brings up to three weekly shipments of 220 pounds of fish from Italy. Look for Tuscan Sea Palamita, a relative of the tuna and mackerel, served raw as carpaccio with artichokes and a drizzle of gremolata or poached with olive oil to create a delicate tonnato sauce for beef tartare; Cicala di Mare, a prehistoric lobster served grilled whole over charcoal or prepared over pasta with tomato and garlic; Mantis Shrimp, a sweet sea crustacean grilled and served with lemon and parsley; Mormora, a fish with moist flesh that comes roasted whole with olive oil and white wine; Centrolofo, a fish served fried with crispy artichoke and pickled lemon; and Costardelle, a bluefish traditionally served fried.

PLANET HOLLYWOOD RESORTStrip House now has another reason for guests to check out the boudoir-adorned steakhouse. Meet the new rare Scotch cart, offering table-side service. On it, discover rare finds such as the Balvenie 30 year, Macallan 25 year, Adelphi Selection — Longmorn 28 year and The Glenrothese 1978. Guests drink from hand cut glasses and can add clear ice cubes made from water that has been boiled three times. But you won’t do that. You take your Scotch neat. [EaterWire]
