Wynn/Encore Dining?

Will be staying at the Encore and was looking forward to dinner at Boulud and Alex. Sadly both have closed. Is there anything really great at these two hotels any more? Not Asian, please.

  1. Bartolotta and Sinatra are both excellent for Italian. Bartolotta is more seafood focused. Interestingly, I've found Alex Stratta's Italian restaurant, Stratta is substantially below the level of Bartolotta and Sinatra. His creations at Alex were some of the best I've experienced. Bummer!

    Botero is a sort of steakhouse type place with pretty good variety and a casual atmosphere. Maybe worth a visit if you want to stay on campus. If you're looking for steak though, you may want to walk across street to Palazzo and check out CUT.

    Wynn is still pretty strong when it comes to fine dining, but the loss of DB and Alex definitely detracted from that strength.

    1. definitely go to sw steakhouse at wynn. great steaks. try the wynn salad and the truffled creamed corn is a MUST!

      1. Go to Joel Robuchon and have the complimentary limo pick you up. No need to limit yourself to the Wynn or Encore.
