First revealed last month, global restaurateurs Maximal Concepts have taken an early step in acknowledging it will be importing its luxuriant Mott 32 concept to the Palazzo resort.
Famed for its Cantonese fine dining and dim sum, Matthew Wentworth Reid, Malcom George Wood, and Xuan Cheng Mu’s company is now promoting the Las Vegas restaurant as “coming soon,” joining an under construction Bangkok expansion.
Paperwork filed in May includes an estimated construction budget of $7.7 million to makeover the main restaurant and a mezzanine above. The unusual layout suggests the venture will take over the 7,000-square-foot, long-shuttered Restaurant Charlie space, well known for its upper-level private dining space overlooking the kitchen.
Named after an address in New York’s Chinatown, the Hong Kong-based Joyce Wang Studio, the same award-winning design team behind Mott 32’s Hong Kong and Vancouver restaurants, will oversee the interior atmosphere.
Featuring a contemporary Cantonese, Beijing, and Sichuan-inspired menu, Mott 32 has become a must-visit destination for its cocktails, dim sum, and “signature” dishes including “barbecue Pluma Iberico pork with Yellow Mountain honey” and Peking duck that takes 48-hours of preparation before serving.
