Brilliant, fresh and welcoming, Lakeside is among the most ignored dining establishments in Las Vegas, perhaps due to the fact that there are a lot of exceptional great dining options at the Wynn and Encore resorts. But make no mistake: Lakeside uses one of the most spectacular seafood experiences you’ll ever have.
Oven-roasted lobster or king crab is the specialized of the home, prepared just or with red chili rub and served with drawn yuzu-basil or spicy harissa butter. However it’s not too late for one of Lakeside’s new favorites, the Maine lobster bake– a summer classic including a 1.5-pound lobster with mussels, clams, sweet corn, potatoes, smoked sausage and cippolini onions. Each bite is a transportive experience.
Favorite openers consist of the king crab and avocado salad, charred octopus with Spanish chorizo and tarragon-speckled lobster bisque. When it’s time for the centerpiece, you must consider a choice from chef David Walzog’s diligently crafted Hawaiian dayboat ocean-to-table fish program. Walzog works closely with little, sustainable fisheries in Maui to provide fresh sea treasures you won’t find anywhere else like monchong, shutome swordfish and Pacific ono. Choose your very own preparation, condiments and accompaniments in order to personalize your meal and co-create a dish you’ll always remember.
