Dining in Vegas Should be a “Wynn-Win”!

Interior of Wing Lei

Wing Lei

There are simply no words or adjectives grand enough to describe the outstanding restaurant Wing Lei, located at the Wynn Hotel and Casino. After just one dining experience, Wing Lei has become one of my all time favorite Las Vegas restaurants. That is saying a lot!

With its gorgeous, plush and rich decor, elegant yet comfortable atmosphere, impeccable service and the finest food Las Vegas offers, Wing Lei is a “must” in fine dining experiences! All of this excellence is skillfully run by the graceful but watchful eye of general manager Lianne Shih.

With its brilliant Chinese cuisine, the dishes are remarkably creative and original, thanks to the incomparable chef Chen. He began his career at the age of seven, working in his parents’ restaurant in his native Taiwan. The chef’s own uncompromisingly high standards of excellence have propelled the restaurant to sterling reviews. His “reverse fusion” style-cuisine that artfully uses Western ingredients and techniques in preparing traditional Chinese classics has accomplished the Wynn Hotel’s goal in outstanding, gourmet, high-end Chinese cuisine it had envisioned for this restaurant.

Upscale Chinese food is just starting to make its mark in the fine dining arena. On Wing Lei’s menu, guests will find their favorite Chinese selections, in addition to new, innovative pairings of Eastern and Western ingredients.

Furthermore, designer Jacques Garcia was careful to attend to every flawless detail; from the bar with an amazingly romantic ambience to the intimate plush main dining room with numerous ancient Chinese motifs such as the dragon and flaming pearl.

Perhaps the restaurant’s most timeless accessory is a rare and original Botero sculpture of a nude woman gracefully set between 100-year-old pomegranate trees that have been planted directly outside the enormous picture window comprising one entire wall of the dining room. STUNNING!

In addition, celebrity watchers, you never know who you might spot dining at this enchanting restaurant, so look around you. I was fortunate enough to see Michael Jackson (he looked amazing) and his three beautiful children (and two bodyguards) enter into one of Wing Lei’s private dining rooms. How can you top that?

Well you can, the moment you taste one morsel of Chen’s masterful creations.

Allow me to share with you some of my suggestions, along with those offered by my handsome server Peter Yau. Start your dream dinner with the succulent traditional Peking Duck Salad appetizer, given an interesting twist when prepared with mesclun lettuce, slivered almonds and truffle vinaigrette. Traditionalists will embrace classics such as the Pan Grilled Pot Stickers, Honey-Glazed BBQ Spare Ribs and Chicken Wonton Soup. I suggest every one of them.

Entrées at Wing Lei are divided into several categories including seafood, poultry, beef, pork and lamb. Chef Chen’s artistic integrated approach to Chinese cuisine is again demonstrated in dishes that fuse traditionally Asian ingredients with European techniques and flavors. Classic seafood selections include tangy Szechwan Chili Prawns, and Wok-Fried Cantonese Maine Lobster with bok choy, winter bamboo. Go ahead and be a little adventurous and enjoy the Alaska Geoduck Clams served sashimi-style, Santa Barbara Spotted Prawns prepared like sashimi, or the gorgeous Australian Spiny Lobster sure to satisfy any palate. If you love chicken, you could not be in finer hands than in chef Chen’s! Classics such as Kung Pao Chicken are especially yummy, and the pairing of roasted peanuts, bell peppers and scallions, especially delectable.

My number one suggestion, however, is the Imperial Peking Duck…a true, rare delicacy cooked to a crispy perfection and served with a spectacular presentation! (They split this dish and serve it first as an appetizer table-side with mandarin pancakes then later as your entree)! You will forever remember this dish!

For a variety, chef Richard Chen also offers guests another option with a tasting menu. Have no fears, as every item on the menu is the best you will find anywhere, so have a ball ordering. Dining at Wing Lei is like an adventure, a party, a happening with all its tastes, textures and well executed flavors. Simply put, “A joy in dining!”

For desserts, get them all! Your mouth will feel as though it has arrived in heaven! They were not only unbelievable to the taste, but the presentations were gorgeous!

You are the best, chef Chen! Thank you for a beautiful experience in fine dining!

Corsa Cucina & Bar

Corsa Cucina & Bar, at the Wynn Hotel & Casino, is a lively, chic, warm, cozy, and modern Italian eatery located at the cornerstone of Wynn’s “theater row,” with quite an enticing menu by critically acclaimed and celebrated chef Stephen Kalt (Spartina in New York City). Chef Kalt offers the flavors of fine Italian food in a comfortable and hip setting that is airy (with an open kitchen), theatrical, and above all, welcoming.

Corsa’s extensive and well thought out menu is the reflection and genius of Chef Kalt’s creativity and skills of modern Italian cuisine. The chef designed this menu with an array of dishes for every taste and craving. As Kalt expressed, Corsa is “a place where you can find both the exotic and the familiar, traditional and contemporary. The cuisine offers a global modern Italian focus with dishes that are inspired by countries such as Italy, Greece, Morocco and Spain for truly universal appeal.”

You will find the service at Corsa warm and friendly, as was my outstanding, helpful, fun server Corey Geter!

Corsa Cucina & Bar is outfitted with a wood-burning pizza oven, used to good effect in creating a wide variety of Chef Kalt’s signature pizzettes (pizzas). These pizzettes are perfect as a tempting starter or bar snack. The dishes, I must say, are decadent. Allow me to give you some suggestions.

To start (well, after the pizzette), indulge in the perfectly executed angel hair pasta salad or devour the delicate chicken liver crostini. The manila clams casserole is also a delight.

For your entrée, I cannot recommend highly enough the out-of-this-world Lobster and Maya Shrimp “Fra Diavolo” composed of spaghetti, chile oil, and roasted plum. Also sinful is the tomatoes and extra virgin olive oil and Short Rib of Beef Ragu with mezza rigatoni, cooked Piedmontese style, tossed with savory parmigiano reggiano.

Another must-try selection is Chef Kalt’s signature Lasagne Bolognese, a mouthwatering salute to comfort food and features handmade pasta, layered with savory veal and plum tomato sauce and fresh whole milk ricotta. Another signature dish is the Ravioli filled with Veal Osso Bucco. So wonderful!

Other entrées that span the globe are the Roasted Organic Sonoma Chicken with preserved lemon and garlic, and the light Roasted Monkfish in Parchment. The Filet Tenderloin of beef is also wonderful.

For those of you that desire more traditional cuisine, you can enjoy the traditional Baked Eggplant Parmigiano or the Chicken Breast Milanese.

Desserts at Corsa Cucina are the cherry on top of an already perfect cake…Pun intended! Order the to-die-for Coco Bombolino, handmade doughnuts filled with chocolate pastry cream, served with caramel and chocolate chip gelato; or perhaps you might desire the Crepes with blueberry sorbet or the Tiramisu made the old-fashioned way! Worth the calories, ladies!

Corsa Cucina & Bar is a must dine at restaurant while in this grand city.
