Bellagio Las Vegas is set to debut a new restaurant in March 2015: Lago by Julian Serrano.
Lago will be the first Italian restaurant from the James Beard Award-winning, Michelin-decorated Chef Julian Serrano. The restaurant will offer a small plate menu and mixology program.
The dining room will have floor-to-ceiling windows with views of Bellagio's fountains, and an open-air patio adjacent to the dining room will have waterfront seating centered on Lake Bellagio. Additionally, a lounge and glass-and-chrome mixology counter will offer a place for quick drinks.
Menu selections will include antipasti offerings such as carpaccio and bruschetta; fresh pastas such as risotto and gnocchi; an assortment of pizzas; and exquisite main dish selections such as salmon, chicken and steak. Side dishes also will be available to accompany any menu item.
Designed by Munge Leung, the restaurant’s decor is influenced by Italian Futurismo, a cultural 20th century movement conceived in Milan. The exterior façade will be wrapped in a colorful mosaic measuring 15 feet tall and spanning 100 feet wide, comprised of Italian glass portraying an aerial map of Milan. The abstract map will include colored backlit glass panels with a color gradient and bright metal accents symbolizing Milan’s roadways.
