What’s old is new at Red Rock Resort. Terra Rossa, the Italian restaurant, returns to the Summerlin resort on Aug. 26, taking over the former Masso Osteria space from chef Scott Conant that closed at the end of May.
Executive chef Dan Rossi, whose resume include Scarpetta and Rose.Rabbit.Lie at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris Las Vegas, takes over the kitchen, which includes a josper oven and grill for charcoal based cooking.
New dishes include sausage and peppers and cacio e pepe, as well as veal Parmesan served family style, pastas, and pizzas baked in a wood-fired oven. Some of the Italian favorites include a striploin with lemon and herbs, bistecca alla Fiorentina with rosemary and garlic, chicken paillard with blistered tomatoes, and swordfish with a white wine butter sauce and lemon.
Coming up, a happy hour and brunch menu.
A dedicated wine room boasts 1,500 bottles of Italian and California wines, along with a full bar.
Terra Rossa originally opened with the resort in 2006, closing in 2014 to eventually make way for Salute Trattoria Italiana. Terra Rossa’s sibling restaurant Terra Verde at Green Valley Ranch also disappeared the same year to become Bottiglia.
Tuscany-inspired and featuring a large open kitchen, the restaurant achieved a moment of national fame when Heather West, winner of Hell’s Kitchen’s second TV season, earned the position of senior chef as her competition prize.
