Resorts World opened on the north end of the Las Vegas Strip, and it still has so much more on the way. Already diners are finding their way to chef Nicole Brisson’s Italian restaurant Brezza, chef Ray Garcia’s Mexican ¡Viva!, and Famous Foods Street Eats with its bevy of stalls that primarily focus on Asian cuisine.
Beginning this fall, a number of new dining and drinking outlets start to open, mainly on the resort’s 70,000-square-foot shopping esplanade dubbed the District that runs along Las Vegas Boulevard. Here, a look at what’s to come.
Estimated Opening: Opens this fall.
The second restaurant from chef Nicole Brisson, who opened Brezza at the resort, offers a European café serving hot and cold tapas, cheese and charcuterie, and sweet and savory pastries. The 140-seat restaurant next to Brezza promises wines from around the world served by the glass, bottle, and flights, along with European beers and cocktails.
Estimated Opening: Opens this winter.
John Pettei and Clique Hospitality bring the cigar bar Eight Lounge, which plans to offer more than 150 cigars, showcased in a custom-built walk-in humidor. Eight Lounge specializes in limited-edition cigars for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to smoke these rare puros. The lounge incorporates the number eight throughout the venue, even dividing the space into eight rooms with deep tufted couches and dark wood trimming for a masculine touch. A bar-length chandelier and subtle pops of color give a feminine feel for balance. A filtration system refreshes air every four minutes to keep air clean, fresh, and constantly flowing. The cigar bar also plans to have a 2,300-square-foot outdoor patio overlooking the Strip with a fireplace and a misting and heating trellis.
Estimated Opening: December
Carver Road Hospitality, the new hospitality company from nightlife impressario Sean Christie, plans to open Carversteak at the resort in December. The 14,500-square-foot restaurant stakes a claim as the city’s largest steakhouse and the resort’s only steak-focused restaurant. The steakhouse specializes in thick dry-aged American cuts, global artisan beef producers, and Japanese-certified wagyu cuts. Two private dining rooms — dubbed The Knife Shop and Scotch Room — a 70-foot honed quartzite stone bar, and 3,500-square-foot terrace complete with a bar, dining, and lounge gardens overlooking the Las Vegas Strip make up the desert landscape space. Carversteak already tapped Daniel Ontiveros, the former executive chef at Scotch 80 Prime at the Palms and T-Bones Chophouse at Red Rock Resort, as the executive chef and Gianni Toffanello, the former general manager of Cut by Wolfgang Puck at the Palazzo, as the general manager.
Estimated Opening: Opens this winter.
Caviar Bar from chef Shaun Hergatt plans to open on the north end of the District with caviar and cocktails. Diners can order Russian Osetra, beluga, Kaluga gold, and more, or turn to the warm section of the tight menu for savory baby waffles with crème fraiche and caviar, smoked salmon lavoche and caviar, sea urchin with bonito gelee and caviar, and other caviar-centric dishes.
Estimated Opening: September 17
The highly anticipated nightclub opens on Friday, September 17, with Tiësto on the decks. The 26,060-square-foot Zouk will become the Las Vegas resort’s nightlife focal point, building on its almost three-decade dominance as a state-of-the-art destination in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Malaysia. The club offers the Capital Bar and Empire, which can operate as an addition to the main club or separate venues on specific nights and seasons. Zouk, with room for 2,160, plans to be open Thursday through Saturday from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.
Richie Palmer’s Mulberry Street Pizzeria of Beverly Hills, which originally opened in 1991, serves pizzas about as thick as a piece of paper by the slice and in pies with specialty toppings such as chicken ranch, eggplant Parmesan, and rigatoni.
San Diego’s Tacos El Cabron, which opened across from UNLV and has a second location in the works at the intersection of Decatur Boulevard and Meadows Lane, plans to serve Tijuana-inspired Mexican cuisine such as street tacos, elote, burritos, bowls, and specialty dishes such as birria.
Announced as an original tenant for Resorts World’s Famous Foods Street Eats, Tiger Sugar is officially listed as coming soon to the globally inspired food hall. The creamy drinks will be served from a prefabricated food cart.
