Line-caught sustainable fish, colossal lobsters and other internationally sourced seafood delicacies offered with a view of Wynn Las Vegas’ Lake of Dreams are what landed Lakeside at the Wynn on our list of favorites.
Live langoustines are available in two sizes. Or share a shellfish plateau, featuring Maine lobster tail, shrimp cocktail, oysters and King crab legs. For your main course, indulge in roasted red Alaskan king crab legs, Dover sole from Holland, sea urchin from Santa Barbara, Mediterranean pink rock lobsters, octopus from Liguria or wild mahi mahi from Hawaii.
For spirits enthusiasts, the signature Lakeside Smash is a fabulous mix of Maker’s Mark 46 Bourbon, Chareau Aloe Liqueur, housemade hibiscus grenadine, watermelon and lemon juices served with mint. And save room for the signature pineapple upside down cake, which is meant to be shared.
VegansBaby.com founder Diana Edelman is among those who recommended this place for its view. She’s quick to point out, however, that plant-based options have declined here since the pandemic. So vegans who are interested in enjoying that view with a fish-free meal may want to check in advance to see how things are progressing as the city moves back toward normalcy.
