Perhaps the opening of SEA will usher in an era of new culinary treasures aside from the French, Italian, sushi and steakhouses that permeate the Strip. SEA: The Thai Experience is the newest restaurant to open, this time at Bally’s Las Vegas. Yes, Thai cuisine on the Strip.
True, there’s MOzen Bistro at Mandarin Oriental, which has Thai in its culinary lineup, but SEA brings simple Thai fusion cuisine for lunch, dinner and late-night bites.
The restaurant has roots in Brooklyn, N.Y., where it opened its first location in 2002. The restaurant’s sleek modern design made it a perfect backdrop for films such as “Garden State” and “Sex and the City.” After seven successful years in Brooklyn, SEA opened a second location in the Meatpacking District in New York, becoming a favorite dining location for many New Yorkers.
Now making its way to the Las Vegas Strip, SEA at Bally’s Las Vegas offers a variety of specialty Thai and Vietnamese dishes including grilled lemongrass chicken, Tamarind whole fish, classic pork chop, volcanic chicken and pineapple curry duck. To complete the dining experience, guests can pair their entrées with beer, wine or specialty cocktails such as the suwanmalee, a Thai lychee martini, or the sakuntala, SEA’s signature mojito.
SEA: The Thai Experience is open daily from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. and is located next to Bally’s Steakhouse. For reservations, call 702.967.3888.
