The fabulous Bellagio Resort & Casino in Las Vegas is a AAA Five Diamond property that’s famous for being modeled after the beautiful villages of Europe and of course – the amazing Mediterranean-blue lake and water fountain show.
Opening in March of 2015, Lago by Julian Serrano will be a new Italian restaurant concept from one of the most celebrated chefs in Las Vegas.
Lago will feature a luxurious dining room with stunning floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows, thus allowing sensational views of the Bellagio resort’s iconic fountains. Next to the dining room, patrons can enjoy an open-air patio and experience waterfront seating on beautiful, 8 1⁄2-acre Lake Bellagio.
Lago will become the first Italian restaurant from the Michelin-decorated and James Beard Award-winning Chef Julian Serrano. Lago will feature a small plate menu to celebrate the creativity and signature flavors of Chef Serrano. In addition, Lago restaurant will introduce a sophisticated mixology program with unique preparations.
The small, savory Italian dishes will deliver reinvented presentations so restaurant guests can enjoy eating a wide variety of cuisine from Chef Serrano. Dining selections will include carpaccio and bruschetta; an assortment of pizzas; fresh pastas such as risotto and gnocchi; in addition to delicious tasting, main dish such as salmon, steak and chicken.
Randy Morton is the Bellagio President and COO and was quoted, “Lago pulls from rich Italian history and culture while delivering a cutting-edge culinary experience – two hallmarks of the Bellagio brand. And as suggested by the name, which means lake in Italian, Lago’s guests will enjoy the most striking Fountain views in the city.”
The interior of Lago restaurant showcases a façade to immediately capture the attention of dining guests and seen from across the Bellagio resort. Upon entering Lago, you are enveloped in a colorful, 15 by 100 foot mosaic that’s made from Italian glass and portrays an aerial map of Milan, Italy.
If you would like to enjoy a nice cocktail before or after your meal, try the intimate lounge with a gorgeous glass-and-chrome mixology counter.
Chef Serrano is excited about opening Lago early next year and stated, “Lago will deliver a fresh experience for the Bellagio guest and Las Vegas local, not only in the cuisine, but also in the ambiance. As people step into Lago, they will be embraced in a setting that is energetic, engaging, approachable and fun – all inspired by the sights, sounds and flavors of Italy.”
