Talking heads say that post-pandemic Las Vegas will resemble the Roaring ’20s, and if ever there was a restaurant to bring to life that feeling, it’s Delilah. The long awaited Delilah, the breathtaking supper club from H.Wood Group opening at Wynn Las Vegas, gets ready to showcase its stunning decor, over-the-top menu, and sublime cocktails on July 14 with a tease of some of its dishes. The two-level space features lavish chandeliers, a fireplace, refined American fare and entertainers dancing alongside a live jazz band.
The resort already tapped executive chef Joshua Smith and resort mixologist Mariena Mercer Boarini to create the food and beverage program.
Although Delilah already has a location in Los Angeles, Smith came up with a new menu of steaks, seafood, and table-side presentations with new recipes only found at this stunning location on the Las Vegas Strip.
A wagyu beef Wellington comes with a 12-ounce filet mignon, herbed crepe, and porcini mushroom duxelles madeira wine jus. Smith took a stab at a reinvented chicken TV dinner by featuring Bobo Farms chicken, peas, carrots, pomme puree, and vin jaune gravy. The smoked salmon and caviar latke comes with chive mascarpone, acme salmon, Russian Osetra caviar, and garnitures, while the Delilah fish and chips features potato-crusted Dover sole, pommes soufflé, malt vinegar beurre blanc, and classic tartar sauce. No supper club is complete without a surf and turf, and the Delilah version features glazed short rib, day boat scallops, wild mushrooms, sunchoke fondant, and shallot jus. The decadence extends to the desserts, where a strawberry shortcake baked Alaska leads the way.
Mercer Boarini made the cocktails that she calls “almost too pretty to drink.” She created the Stepford Wife featuring Grey Goose essences strawberry lemongrass vodka, strawberry lychee pink peppercorn cordial, citrus, rosé Champagne, eau-de-Delilah, and gold; the Champagne Papi featuring Virginia black whiskey, velvet falernum, lime, and mango served with a personal bottle of Moët Impérial; the Film Noir featuring Basil Hayden’s dark rye, straight-up apple brandy, and spice of life; and Hollywood Land featuring Bruichladdich classic scotch, lemon, and ginger, to name a few.
The supper club, located in Wynn’s Tower Suites, plans to be open Wednesday through Sunday from 5:30 to 11 p.m., with the bar and lounge remaining open during late night hours. Reservations are already filled up until July 30.
