A seaside retreat now sits beside the Bellagio’s famous gardens that change with the seasons with a sea of flowers and plants. Michael Mina revamped his oldest restaurant in Las Vegas to reflect a seaside village dining experience with fine dining. The restaurant re-opened in April.
Among the renovations, an expanded dining room that now features its own raw bar along with a new lounge space. A new private dining room offers space for 24 guests.
The fine dining restaurant also features a market list that blends seafood from Japan, the Mediterranean, France, and more. Mina also now serves a three-course à la carte menu with dishes such as black garlic butter fish served with fried peppers, baby eggplant and olive oil-smashed white yams.
Despite the renovations, one tradition remains — table-side caviar service, now served with royal trimmings and selections of Golden Osetra, Kaluga, and White Sturgeon.
Mina opened his eponymous restaurant in 2010, replacing his eatery Aqua that debuted in 1998 at the resort and bringing his namesake treasure from San Francisco to Las Vegas. Tony Chi & Associates originally designed the room using rare woods and luxe fabrics.
