Noted restaurateur, Michael Chow, opened the very first Mr. Chow restaurant in London in 1968. In 1974, Chow debuted its most popular location in Los Angeles. Since then, there have been additional openings in New York, South Beach and most recently Malibu, which opened in 2012. Now it’s Sin City’s turn and Caesars Palace is the ideal hotel to house such a historical restaurant that pays homage to Chow’s Chinese heritage.
You enter Mr. Chow’s by way of private elevators from the casino floor of Caesars Palace, which then takes you to the stunning second story where the restaurant overlooks the Garden of the Gods Pool. The beautifully decorated dining room can comfortably seat 250 people and also includes two luxury private dining rooms, as well as terrace seating during the warmer months. One of the most iconic aspects of Mr. Chow is the decadent champagne trolley and lounge, which now gets the full Sin City treatment. As soon as you arrive, you’ll be greeted with a glass of fine bubbly which is a just a little taste of the fine-dining experience that lies ahead. You can pick between top brands like Perrier-Joust and Veuve Clicquot, or live large with the elite Krug “Grande Cuvée” trolley. If champagne isn’t your thing, Mr. Chow also has a plentiful selection of signature cocktails. Some of our personal favorites include the Inception, which is lychee essence topped with Moët & Chandon champagne or the Red 22 & Collins, where fresh strawberries and Aperol mix with pink grapefruit juice for a most refreshing libation.
When perusing Mr. Chow’s celebrated menu, you’ll quickly notice that this is definitely a lavish Sin City experience and there is a minimum charge of $40 per person to dine here. Some of the choice starters include Mr. Chow’s signature chicken satay, large crab claws, prawn toast with gambei and a flavorful shrimp roll among others. For the main course, you simply must sample Mr Chow’s famous handmade Beijing noodles which were first introduced to the world way back in 1968 and have remained popular ever since or the tasty green prawns. The lobster shumai pasta is also a standout, as is the squid ink rice noodles. But perhaps the most iconic item at Mr Chow’s is the Gamblers Duck, which comes served tender and crispy with steamed pancakes and a sweet plum sauce. If you’re looking for value, one of the best dining deals is doing the Semi Prix Fixe menu where your table is served family-style and you can choose from an assortment of the restaurant’s celebrated dishes.
Mr Chow and Caesars Palace are the perfect pairing, providing Sin City with yet another exciting fine-dining option to discover in 2016. Treat yourself to a night out here and we promise that you’ll be in foodie heaven.
