Acclaimed chef Thomas Keller, who already has Bouchon Bistro and three Bouchon Bakery locations at the Venetian, turns his eye toward Wynn Las Vegas in 2020 when he opens a new restaurant there.
The resort just announced that Keller — who has The French Laundry, Per Se, The Surf Club Restaurant, and TAK Room in his portfolio of restaurants — takes over the former Country Club space overlooking the golf course
Wynn didn’t tease which restaurant would arrive, or whether it would be a new idea, but did say that it opens in the fall of 2020.
The Country Club closed in January 2018 to make way for construction on Paradise Park, the $1.5 billion new lagoon, water sports facility, convention center and hotel surrounded by sand beaches over 140 acres. The restaurant featured a must-eat Sunday jazz brunch, now offered at Lakeside, and a pretty amazing French dip. The Paradise Park project pretty much died in late 2018 with only a proposed convention center still on the agenda.
Wynn Las Vegas also plans to close its pan-Asian restaurant Andrea’s on the Encore side of the resort and replace it with a contemporary Mexican restaurant in early 2020. The unnamed Mexican restaurant brings Enrique Olvera, Daniela Soto-Innes, and Santiago Perez, the team behind acclaimed restaurant Cosme and the more casual Atla in New York City, and Damian and Ditroit, which will both debut later this year in Los Angeles.
Wynn also plans to open the party-with-dinner restaurant Delilah from L.A.’s h.wood Group in the former Alex space in spring 2020.
