Take a Look at the Very Modern Red Plate

The Chinese restaurant at the Cosmopolitan elevates the dining experience

Red Plate, the new Cantonese restaurant at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, takes its name from an historic Chinese tradition where visiting officials would submit a plate to the emperor during a meal as a way to address the ruler. Different colors of plates symbolize a person’s rank and stature in the community, and the more prominent figures, such as princes, dukes, and members of the royal family, gifted red plates.

The restaurant carries that red plate tradition through to its decor, with dashes of bright red starkly standing out against an almost industrial backdrop.

Architect firm Marnell Companies worked with Celano Design Studio on the Chinese design and culture of the space that contains traditional artwork and furniture balanced with contemporary materials.

Diners walk up to an exterior with a sculptural entrance with curved, champagne-colored walls in contrast to black metal and brass detailing. From there, patrons walk through an intimate bar and lounge before leading to the main dining space, accented by luxurious red banquettes.

Take a look inside.
