SLS Las Vegas Brings Powerhouse Line-Up of Chefs and Restaurants to the Strip

sls las vegas

SLS LAS VEGAS BRINGS POWERHOUSE LINE-UP OF CHEFS AND RESTAURANTS TO THE STRIP

Newest Location of the Luxury Resort Brand Features Dynamic Culinary Experiences

 

SLS Las Vegas, sbe’s new lifestyle-driven, mixed-use resort and casino, introduces a dazzling portfolio of food and beverage venues. Opening on Aug. 23, 2014, expect to find a creative mix of distinctly new restaurants making their grand debuts, alongside critically acclaimed favorites reimagined exclusively for The Strip—all accompanied by sbe’s award-winning beverage and mixology program. Add imaginative design work from renowned designer Philippe Starck in collaboration with Gensler Architects, and SLS Las Vegas provides guests with an experience like no other.

 

Leading the charge is SLS Hotels’ Culinary Director, world-renowned chef José Andrés, who is unveiling two brand new restaurants at the resort. Bazaar Meat by José Andrés is the third incarnation of the award-winning Bazaar dining concept and is unlike any that have come before it. A lavish celebration of all things carnivorous, Bazaar Meat is located just off the main floor of SLS Las Vegas and is open nightly for dinner. At the heart of the expansive 335-seat restaurant are its show-stopping, wood-and-charcoal-fired grills and ovens, whose sights, sounds and aromas greet guests from the open kitchen the moment they step inside. The menu is made for sharing and exploring, with whole suckling pigs; exquisite cuts of beef, pork, fish and poultry, and an assortment of wild game and offal.

 

Meat continues to be showcased in its purest form with a tartare bar and a variety of carpaccios and cured meats. And not to be missed are the bountiful raw seafood bar offerings and selection of caviars. Rounding out the menu are sections dedicated to signature Bazaar tapas and Andrés’ innovative takes on seasonal vegetables and potatoes. Guests can pair dishes with an expansive selection of more than 600 wines and, in true Bazaar fashion, a cutting-edge cocktail program also complements. Bazaar Meat is set upon a carpet emblazoned with an image of a butcher’s diagram of an entire cow, and has quite possibly the world’s longest table running nearly the entire length of its dining room.

 

Complementing the stunning dining room is Bar Centro, a chic setting for cocktails and small bites. Adjacent to the resort’s signature restaurant is Bazaar Casino, Las Vegas’ only casino branded by a James Beard Award-winning chef. Fusing gaming with innovative cuisine, guests can try their hand at blackjack and roulette tables, grab a cocktail at the dedicated bar or lounge and enjoy a selection of signature José Andrés dishes at nearby dining tables.

 

Hearty and soul-satisfying, Ku Noodle is Andrés’ homage to Asian cuisine. Located between the main lobby and casino floor, this casual eatery showcases the artistry of hand-pulled and cut noodles. Guests can catch a glimpse of the magic of these generations-old methods of noodle making through a window looking in from the casino, and can take in the full spectacle of the open kitchen from the restaurant’s 103-seat dining room. Open daily from 11 a.m. to midnight, Ku Noodle is the ideal spot for a quick bite, delicious lunch or late-night feast. Its menu consists of an array of noodles, soups, siu mai, rice, vegetables and salads. Taiwanese-style shaved ice is offered for dessert, which can be customized with a selection of toppings and sauces. Accenting the bright white space are hanging Chinese newspapers on the walls and two panels of Asian-inspired floral chalk art.

 

Adjacent Ku Noodle is The Griddle Cafe, which debuts its first-ever location outside of Los Angeles. Often described as the “Disneyland of Breakfast,” the casual restaurant is the brainchild of its founder and chef, Jodi Hortze, whose menu of creative, often whimsical, savory and sweet takes on breakfast and comfort food classics has reached legendary status. Open 24/7, The Griddle Cafe serves breakfast all day, with a menu featuring a wide selection of egg dishes, pancakes and French toasts. Additionally, there are a variety of specialty sandwiches, salads and burgers available, as well as a taco menu. Also making its way to Las Vegas is the infamous “Liquid Diet” menu with “Boozy Pitchers” to share, along with “panCAKE Boozy Shakes,” “Drunken Floats” and other handcrafted cocktails. Similar to the Sunset Boulevard original, the 164-seat eatery features an open kitchen and horseshoe-shaped bar.

 

Across the casino floor is a triumvirate of celebrated sbe signature restaurants, and a gastronomic tour across the globe can be had by simply strolling door to door. Guests are lured into Cleo immediately encountering its striking pyramid-shaped entrance, replete with a 14-foot image of Cleopatra, the restaurant’s namesake. Inside the 182-seat restaurant, a dramatic pitched roof, marble counters, green and white tiles and custom chandeliers create warm, elegant environs. An open kitchen and brick-covered wood-burning oven is at Cleo’s heart, and it’s from here that Chef Danny Elmaleh plies his craft, churning out a contemporary Mediterranean shared-plates menu of mezze, tagines and flatbreads. Elmaleh has kept many beloved dishes that are familiar to those who frequent Cleo’s acclaimed Hollywood outpost, while also adding new menu items completely unique to Las Vegas. To pair with the menu is an award-winning mixology program. Cleo is open for dinner nightly.

 

Acclaimed Japanese standout Katsuya by Starck neighbors Cleo and delivers a true feast for the senses courtesy of Master Sushi Chef Katsuya Uechi and design impresario Philippe Starck. Katsuya serves dinner nightly and features a menu loaded with signature offerings of artfully crafted sushi and sashimi platters, rolls, robata and specialty cocktails. The 175-seat restaurant features its iconic design elements familiar the world over—a “bento box” floor plan, evocative geisha imagery, natural Japanese ash wood, flashes of neon color and oversized images of samurai helmets.

 

Next to Katsuya is 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria. Serving daily from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., 800 Degrees honors Old World tradition with an ingredient-focused menu of Neapolitan pizzas featuring California-grown tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and handcrafted crusts made with flour from the ancient Molino San Felice in Naples. To order, guests can choose from a selection of Chef Anthony Carron’s favorites or they can customize their own pie with more than 40 different fresh toppings from which they can choose. Pizzas are made fresh to order and baked in just 60 to 90 seconds in the restaurant’s 800-degree wood-burning ovens. Design elements in the 72-seat casual space include intricate chalk art and images of paparazzi surrounding a red high-heeled shoe.

 

Just a short walk over on the casino floor is the perfect place for sports viewing and betting: Umami Burger, Beer Garden & Sports Book. Open daily until 2 a.m., the restaurant offers a menu of signature burgers like no other. Named “Burger of the Year” by GQ Magazine, Umami Burger has a devoted cult following among food lovers around the world. Umami Burger focuses on savory flavors and exceptional hospitality. It produces all of its own condiments, cheeses and grinds its meat in-house throughout the day. All of the beef burgers are made with hand-ground, hand-formed premium steak. The result is a sophisticated, tightly edited selection of burgers, sides and accompaniments like The Manly Burger, The Truffle Burger and Cheesy Tots. Umami Burger at SLS Las Vegas serves more than 35 craft beers, which can be enjoyed in the restaurant’s outdoor Beer Garden overlooking The Strip. Also featured in the 281-seat restaurant is a sports book operated by William Hill, complete with a 120-square-foot, high-definition video wall. This one-of-a-kind venue features live InPlay wagering, and more than 50 TVs, including one in each booth, ensuring no important games will ever be missed.

 

On the resort’s Mezzanine level, guests will find The SLS Buffet, open daily for breakfast and dinner, as well as weekend brunch. Here SLS Las Vegas’ Director of Culinary Operations, Chef Luke Forzano, fashions a true showcase of global cuisine comprised of an enlivening selection of flavorful, seasonal, house-made fare with dining options including Chinese, Japanese, Wood-Grilled, Indian, Mediterranean and Seafood. Expect to see everything from Peking duck to pastas to steakhouse classics, and beyond. For something sweet, The SLS Buffet offers up a selection of treats including donuts, gelatos, a crepe station and decadent cake “shooters.” Additionally, the buffet has its own select cocktail menu carefully crafted to pair with the variety of cuisines, and brunch features a make-your-own Bloody Mary bar. The setting for the buffet conjures a chic, rustic cabin. Aged wooden bookshelves line walls, elaborate antler chandeliers hang from pitched ceilings and fireplaces spread throughout the space make for a relaxing atmosphere.

 

Rounding out SLS Las Vegas’ dining venues is The Perq. Located adjacent to guest registration, this European-inspired café is open daily 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. and is perfect for guests looking for a quick, yet truly satisfying, bite or beverage. In collaboration with LAMILL Coffee, The Perq offers the acclaimed LA-based specialty roaster’s gourmet coffee and tea. Its menu features a selection of house-made, artisanal fare including fresh salads, panini, quiches, sweet and savory pastries and gelato.

 

In addition to its dining options, SLS Las Vegas also plies guests with plenty of refreshing libations. Monkey Bar, the resort’s signature lobby bar, is the perfect spot to unwind before or after a night out. Intimate and always inviting, Monkey Bar serves up a list of classic cocktails and an extensive selection of craft beer. It also has an outside terrace where premium cigars are available to order. As its name implies, Center Bar is situated right in the heart of all the action in the middle of the casino floor. Center Bar features wildly innovative specialty cocktails and shots, along with popular domestic and international brews. A captivating LED fixture hangs above the bar, enhancing its prime location. Center Bar is open 24/7; Monkey Bar’s hours are 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily.

SLS LAS VEGAS ANNOUNCES THE AWARD-WINNING CLEO AS THE LATEST ADDITION TO ITS CULINARY OFFERINGS 

Cleo Joins The Bazaar by José Andrés, Katsuya, Umami Burger, 800 Degrees and The Griddle Café in Making SLS Las Vegas an Unrivaled Foodie Destination

 

SLS Las Vegas, a lifestyle-driven, mixed-use resort and casino featuring sbe’s award-winning hospitality brands, today announced that Cleo will join the property’s mix of popular culinary offerings. Made famous in Hollywood following its debut at The Redbury Hotel in 2010, Cleo will showcase Chef Danny Elmaleh’s acclaimed contemporary Mediterranean cuisine alongside The Bazaar by José Andrés, Katsuya, Umami Burger, 800 Degrees, The Griddle Café and other brands yet to be announced.

Occupying a 4,000 square-foot space, Cleo, named to Los Angeles Magazine’s “Best New Restaurants” in 2011, will impart a familiar narrative to fans of the Hollywood outpost, with multiple kitchens that showcase chefs bringing the cuisine to life in addition to a central wood-burning oven.  Chef Danny’s favorites like the Brussels sprouts, homemade laffa breads, meatball tagine, moussakah and many others will be accompanied by a selection of new dishes currently under development.  Complementing the cuisine will be Cleo’s signature mixology program highlighted by a selection of beverages made with fresh ingredients and fresh-pressed juices.

“Bringing the Cleo dining experience to SLS Las Vegas is something we’re all very excited about,” said Rob Oseland, SLS Las Vegas President and Chief Operating Officer.  “Chef Danny’s menu and dedication to seasonal cuisine has established Cleo as one of Hollywood’s most talked about restaurants and will only elevate what’s already shaping up to be an unparalleled collection of food and beverage offerings.”

“Cleo’s menu and vibe are a natural fit for SLS and the entire team is hard at work concepting new dishes that capture both the essence of Hollywood and Vegas,” added Elmaleh.  “And having Cleo positioned alongside such an incredible mix of food and beverage brands is an absolute honor.”

While much of Cleo’s design is still under development, fans of the original location can look forward to an aesthetic that reflects the one composed by sbe Founder, Chairman and CEO Sam Nazarian and acclaimed filmmaker and photographer Matthew Rolston in Hollywood.  The space will also include a special area for the ceremonial plate-breaking which has become a cherished experience for diners celebrating special occasions.

Chef Danny Elmaleh, the culinary mastermind behind many of sbe’s most renowned restaurants, is best known for his award-winning concept, Cleo. Drawing on both his childhood and professional life spent around the world, Elmaleh is known for effortlessly blending diverse cuisines to create exotic and sumptuous dishes, often in the most unexpected places.

 

With his development of imaginative culinary offerings, he continues to make a name for himself as the creator of enlivening menus that encourage a social dining experience. While Chef Danny has had an inspired impact on nearly every one of sbe’s restaurant offerings, his menu at Cleo at The Redbury has earned him critical acclaim. Boasting a distinctly light and fresh menu that evokes a boho-inspired mezze bar, Cleo has become one of the hottest restaurants in the country.

 

Elmaleh began his career as a chef in Japan at a prominent French restaurant. He then cooked at Ristorante Giannino in Milan and Melisse and its sister restaurant, Lemon Moon, in Los Angeles. In 2006, Elmaleh opened Celadon restaurant and was named a “Rising Star Chef” of 2007 by Star Chefs. It was there that he met Katsuya Uechi and forged the relationship that led to his role with sbe.

 

Elmaleh’s unique culinary style is informed by his upbringing. Born in Haifa, Israel, to a Moroccan father and a Japanese mother, Elmaleh began his training at the famed Culinary Institute of America in New York.
