Now on its second executive chef before it even served a single meal, Charles Phan’s 8,200-square-foot Vietnamese restaurant is planned for the prominent corner space at the Las Vegas Boulevard entrance to the Forum Shops at Caesars.
The restaurant recently enlisted former Greene St. Kitchen chef de cuisine Lanny Chin to oversee the kitchen after former Momofuku chef Shaun King, who had taken the job, departed for Portland, Oregon, in May. The Slanted Door allocated an estimated construction budget of $3 million for the remodel back in 2018, still hidden behind plywood for the last two years.
The first out-of-state expansion for the award-winning brand features “vibrant home-style Vietnamese food in a modern setting.”
