Michelin Bestows Honors on Wynn Las Vegas

14

For the second year in a row, Wynn Las Vegas has been awarded Five Red Pavilions from the 2009 Las Vegas Michelin Guide. This is the highest rating available and Wynn is the only resort in Las Vegas to receive such honors. ALEX, Alessandro Stratta’s namesake restaurant, was once again awarded two coveted Michelin stars, and both Richard Chen’s Wing Lei and Daniel Boulud Brasserie were again awarded one Michelin star.

In North America, only nine hotels have received Michelin’s highest rating of Five Red Pavilions, while only 20 restaurants have received two stars and 85 restaurants have received one star. Wing Lei remains the first and only Michelin rated Chinese restaurant on the continent.

These prestigious honors bring a trifecta to Wynn Las Vegas, the only casino resort in the world to hold the Mobil Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond awards for both hotel and fine dining.

The Michelin Guide features a selection of the best restaurants and hotels in a given city or region, across various comfort and price scales, and is widely considered the “bible of gastronomy for foodies.” Restaurants worthy of a star or multiple stars reflect the characteristics of first-class quality, a mastery of cooking and a superior product.

Named for internationally acclaimed executive chef Alessandro (Alex) Stratta, ALEX offers refined French cuisine in a luxurious and opulent setting. Chef Stratta creates seasonal menus inspired by the flavors of France and, in the hands of this gifted chef, even the simplest of ingredients are transformed and elevated to the summit of fine dining. ALEX is also the recipient of the AAA Five-Diamond and Mobil Five-Star awards.

World-renowned chef Daniel Boulud and co-executive chef Wes Holton showcase their mastery of French cuisine at Daniel Boulud Brasserie. The menu features modern brasserie fare that pays homage to Boulud’s roots while playfully reinterpreting many classic dishes. Boulud’s signature menu is complemented by the sophisticated and intimate atmosphere, and a magnificent view of the Lake of Dreams.

Wing Lei is the “haute Chinese” restaurant at Wynn Las Vegas. Helmed by rising star chef Richard Chen, Wing Lei offers guests refined Chinese cuisine in a stylish and elegant setting. The menu features traditional Chinese selections as well as new, innovative pairings of Eastern and Western ingredients.
