Light bites, cocktails and music, beginning July 9

Botero, the trendy steakhouse located at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas, in collaboration with Surrender, Tryst and XS Nightclubs, introduces Botero Supper Club, a sophisticated nightlife dining experience. Beginning July 9, Botero Supper Club does supper sexy with the debut of the new Supper Club menu created by Executive Chef Mark LoRusso, specialty cocktails, and an explosive lineup of celebrity DJs, every night after 9 p.m.

lorusso

“There has always been a natural synergy between Botero and the nightlife venues at Wynn Las Vegas and Encore,” said Jesse Waits, managing partner of XS Nightclub. “By incorporating our unparalleled nightlife programming into the restaurant, we are able to create a new and contemporary pre-club experience for party-goers. Guests will be able to indulge in Chef LoRusso’s new Nightlife Menu and enjoy sounds by the world’s most renowned DJs.”

“It is a pleasure to share my new Nightlife Menu with our guests at Botero Supper Club,” said LoRusso. “Developing a fun and playful menu has been an exciting process. The new menu showcases my signature style through a variety of small plates and light bites that our guests will enjoy before heading to one of our premier nightclubs.”

The new Nightlife Menu includes fresh takes on small plates and shared items such as hamachi tartare with crispy rice cake and sweet chili vinaigrette, as well as a crudo tasting featuring tuna with an avocado-soy sauce and halibut with a ginger-lime sauce. Sushi is introduced for the first time at Botero with a variety of rolls on offer as well as turkey-mozzarella meatball sliders with parmesan cheese and basil, crispy rock shrimp po’ boys with a spicy aioli and a pork belly BLT and cheese.

It has been said that what’s happening in the life of a chef is often reflected by what appears on his/her menu.  This certainly rings true for Chef Kim Canteenwalla, executive chef and managing partner at Society Café at Encore Las Vegas.

kim

Lighter and healthier options are suddenly appearing on his evolving menu previously celebrated for its decadent re-imagined American classics cooked up with a modern and elegant flair.  Sinful signature dishes, like the mac n’ cheese “bites” with a truffle dipping sauce, helped Society Café Encore get named one of Esquire magazine’s “Best New Restaurants, 2009.”

Canteenwalla’s recent shift towards offering lighter items was triggered by bad eating habits and his body telling him it was time to make a change.

It’s no secret that chefs and restaurateurs put in long and rigorous hours.  Constantly tasting dishes to make sure they’re right, grabbing meals late and gravitating to the more fattening comfort food items is a common and unhealthy food trap that many chefs can fall in.  That’s exactly what happened with Canteenwalla and he packed on some pounds.

1cilantrolumpcrabsaladclub

Feeling sluggish and bloated, one night Canteenwalla watched the film “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead,” a documentary by Australian film maker Joe Cross. Overweight and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Cross swapped out junk food for freshly extracted juices for 60 days in a mission to regain his health.

Canteenwalla had an awakening.  Seeing this film marked his turning point towards a new way eating and living.

 

1drinkflight

He pulled out a never used juicer hidden away in his house, and began juicing. He lost 18 pounds within 10 days (today, he is down 30 pounds). He introduced his juices to his staff and his managers, who raved about the flavor profiles, the energizing affect, and subsequent weight loss.  It was inevitable that the juices would find their way onto the Society Café Encore menu, and a few months ago that’s exactly what happened.

“Liquid Life” was introduced to the menu.  The Society Garden and The Green Monster were quickly embraced by customers and a third juice, called “Dirty” Vegan Water, has just been added.  The three are now available as a flight, aptly nicknamed the “Stop Light Flight” for their respective red, yellow-ish, and green colors.

“I have never felt healthier and more energized in my life,” said Canteenwalla.

 

scallops1

With a new mindset, Canteenwalla has since rolled out additional lighter and healthier options, including: caramelized seared scallops with pea puree, micro fennel, bacon & pistachio gremolata; black garlic prawns with young artichokes, ratatouille, charred tomato vinaigrette; the “Skinny” salad comprised of poached rock shrimp, Napa cabbage, arugula, radish, rice cracker, miso and yuzu dressing; and lime& cilantro lumpcrab salad with charred corn, jicama, hearts of palm, avocado & tomatillo salsa, among others; and a lobster fried rice side dish that is a far cry from the inherently oily versions frequently served at Chinese restaurants.

1blackgarlicprawns

Fortifying the more health-minded items now available at Society Café Encore is the incredibly high-quality produce Canteenwalla buys for the restaurant. He has forged a relationship with Kerry Clasby, the “Intuitive Forager,” who combs farms up and down California hunting for the perfect produce which she brings to a Las Vegas farmer’s market every Thursday and Friday. (She helped him come up with the “Dirty” Vegan Water juice recipe.)

society

Canteenwalla has become an outspoken champion of Clasby’s throughout the Las Vegas culinary community.

“Thanks to Kerry, the quality of produce available to us in Las Vegas is unprecedented,” said Canteenwalla. “At Society Café we are simply preparing the most remarkable vegetables and fruits you have ever tasted.”

Like all the restaurants at the Wynn Las Vegas resort, Society Café Encore has a vegan menu dedicated to dishes free of meat, dairy and other animal products. Some of the lighter selections include: the Society Vegan Tasting with red & white quinoa salad, grilled artichoke, king trumpet mushrooms & roasted beets; shaved raw vegetable salad featuring carrots, asparagus, fennel, zucchini, beets, cucumber, fine herbs, lemon vinaigrette; and a creamless corn soup.

Canteenwalla promises to not abandon the classics that have put Society Café on the map.

“People still come back for the mac n’ cheese bites and ‘lollipop’ chicken wings, but we’ve expanded our horizons,” said Canteenwalla. “We’re offering a little more something for everyone and our customers are reacting warmly. At the end of the day, that’s what matters most.”

Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night bites, Society Café Encore is open Sunday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 1 a.m.  For reservations, call (702) 248-3463.

The sixth annual Vegas Uncork’d kicked off once again up and down the famed Las Vegas Strip. It began in high style with Wolfgang Puck hosting an intimate lunch with Bon Appétit Editor in Chief Adam Rapoport at Spago to celebrate its 20th anniversary. Wolfgang Puck himself served up palate pleasing delights of Austrian White Asparagus Salad, Grilled French Sea Basses Loup De Mer and Strawberries and Cream that put a smile on everyone’s face.

un61_sized

Wolfgang was not done yet as he joined fellow chefs from Bellagio, Caesars Palace, The Cosmopolitan and Mandalay Bay at the Caesars Palace fountains to officially mark the beginning of Vegas Uncork’d. The crowds enthusiasm bubbled over when Wolfgang Puck sabered off a bottle of Mionetto Prosecco marking the traditional official start of this culinary weekend full of all-stars.

As the sun began to set, many of the Celebrity Chef  kitchens at Caesars Palace heated up with  several Master Series Dinners where Guy Savoy, Bobby Flay, François Payard, The Pellegrino Family at RAOs  and Michel Richard served up signature dishes to impress the guests.

steak_sized

In addition to the mouthwatering Master Series Dinners, Vegas Uncork’d literally took it to the streets when 15 of Las Vegas’ food trucks arrived in formation on Bellagio’s Hidden Drive for their inaugural “Follow That Food Truck” event. The numerous guests enjoyed delicious treats from their favorite Food Trucks while mingling with world-renowned chefs Julian Serrano, Michael Mina, Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Todd English.

The second day of this culinary parade of all stars began with first year participant, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and what a way to start!  A paella lunch at Jaleo where Chef José Andrés showed why he is a master in the kitchen  as he schooled the  audience on  how to prepare paella on a wood-fired paella grill which happens to be the only one in the U.S.

Just down the street at the Bellagio, Raj Parr, Mina Group’s Wine Director, Jason Smith, Master Sommelier and Bellagio’s Wine Director, and Carlos Splendorini at My Favorite teamed up to to take their guests on an adventure to be remembered. They started with The Violet Femme, a dish with Encanto Pisco, Crème De Violette, honey and lavender;  then a tasty Hamachi Crudo, a sake-cured cucumber with sea bream emulsion paired with Yoshinogawa Winter Warrior Junmai Ginjo Sake and then a succulent Liberty Farms Duck with Stewed Rhubarb and Foie Gras Kumquat paired with Au Bon Climat Sanford & Benedict.  This adventure on a plate  did not end until the guests  were  treated with a  Passion Fruit Panna Cotta with a Coconut-Lime Sorbet paired with Kracher Cuvee Beerenauslese. Vegas Uncork’d was just getting up a full steam and headed into the afternoon.

msm_sized

Mandalay Bay got into the act with  Border Grill’s Mary Sue Milliken, Susan Feniger and Executive Chef Michael Minor putting on a Southwestern show of world class expertise they are known for. Starting with a spicy Cucumber Jalapeño Margarita,  the chefs launched their cooking demonstration by  serving  a Smoky Bean, Bacon And Avocado Tostada,  Tomatillo Glazed Ribs with Esquite and Churro Tots.

sf_sized

Vegas Uncork’d is not just about world class Chefs and their works of art but also wine as well. David Lynch, Bon Appétit’s wine editor, and Raj Parr, taught a sellout crowd how to pair affordable wines with elevated menus. Five wines ranging from moderately-priced to “break-the-bank” were served during each of the four courses prepared by Chef Michael Mina.  

gs_food_sized

With all of the great events offered at Vegas Uncork’d , the crown jewel is The Grand Tasting. This year’s Grand Tasting appealed to a sold-out crowd of 2,500 and transformed the Garden of Gods pool into an epicurean paradise of delight. It was a foodie heavenly dream to mingle with Celebrity Chefs like  Gordon Ramsay, Todd English, Francois Payard, Nobu Matsuhisa, David Myers, Bradley Ogden, Charlie Palmer, Rick Moonen, José Andrés and Guy Savoy and Scott Conant.

burger_stick_sized

The party continued on into the early morning hours at The Cosmopolitan with the Celebrity Chef Poker Tournament at The Boulevard Pool that featured sliders from STK, signature cocktails from Mixologist  David Myer’s and tunes by Mia & Caitlin. Guests and chefs including Rick Moonen, Susan Feniger, Jean-George Vongerichten, José Andrés, Bruce Bromberg, Scott Conant and Stephen Hopcraft  showed off  their poker faces at the  lively tables Two Hours later,  Mario Disi, General Manager of Scarpetta, emerged as the winner and Andrew Knowlton, Bon Appétit’s restaurant and drinks editor, followed as a runner-up. All prize winnings were donated to Communities In Schools, Opportunity Village and Vegas Roots Community Gardens.

 After a late night, guests got some sleep and started along  Bon Appetit’s epic culinary road up and down the strip.  Chronicles of A Couple That Cooks Together at Bellagio’s Prime was an excellent choice as guests were treated to a tasty  meal served by renowned Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten and his wife Marja, host of Kimchi Chronicles on PBS.  They started us off with Herbed Mung Bean Pancakes and continued on with the main course of Kobe Ribeye “Bulgogi” style with Kimchi fried rice and finished with a Passion Fruit Sunflower, complete with crisp meringue and a decadent vanilla pastry cream.

 Estiatorio Milos at The Cosmopolitan joined in the culinary parade as guests joined Chef Costas Spiliadis for the At the Fish Market with Costas Spiliadis to share secrets of healthy eating through a Mediterranean diet.

Everyone’s sweet tooth was exquisitely satisfied by the sweet temptations of pastries and desserts at  Payard Patisserie & Bistro at Caesars Palace  and  Chef Francois Payard, where he shared his masterful s skills and techniques with his guests.

A great way to celebrate after some great cuisine is with good company and cocktails. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas  was the place to be as  guests enjoyed an endless flow of high-end cocktails with Bon Appétit Restaurant and Drinks Editor Andrew Knowlton, nationally-renowned restaurateur Scott Conant and Cosmopolitan mixologist Mariena Mercer.  One of the highlights was “The Libertine” made with Maker’s Mark 46, rosemary syrup, lemon juice, maple syrup and egg white and the “Verbena” made with Milagro Silver, ginger syrup and Yuzu Sour.

As the busy day turned into evening, guests took part in a champagne toast with Chef Alain Ducasse at THEhotel’s miX at Mandalay Bay for The Nature of a Good Party where they enjoyed an  exclusive five-course Taste of  MIX menu with wine pairings.

For the beach bums there was a clambake like no other we have seen. As waves crashed  on the Mandalay Bay Beach  shore and the stars came out in full glitter, guests were treated to live music and an OPI nail station as they enjoyed world class cocktails  and of course  fresh seafood from Chefs Charlie Palmer, Rick Moonen, Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger.

After spending time on the beach it was time to end the day with a view from  the MIX  rooftop lounge at THEhotel at Mandalay Bay for an  After Hours party.  Guests partied the night away alongside Chefs Rick Moonen, Charlie Palmer, Mary Sue Milliken, Susan Feniger and many others. The dance floor was vibrant as guests danced all night with beats spun by Chef Keller himself  and DJ Freaky le Freak. Cocktails continued to flow alongside a selection of tasty bite-sized desserts such as cotton candy, chocolate lollipops and mini dessert tarts created by Chef Alain Ducasse, Chef Hubert Keller and Mandalay Bay Executive Pastry chef and Master Chocolatier Vincent Pilon.

Vegas Uncork’d  falls over the Mothers Day weekend  and rightfully so, Mothers are held in high regard on Mother’s Day, guests attended a  Sparkling Brunch with Guy Savoy  and were treated to very  exclusive menu by the famed Michelin-starred restaurant at Caesars Palace. What a better gift for the Moms in the house as they  were beyond thrilled  to meet a world-renowned chef,  free flowing champagne and an  unforgettable menu.

As Vegas Uncork’d 20120 came to an end, many guests joined the renowned  Pellegrino family on the patio of Rao’s at Caesars Palace for Rao’s On The Grill. Very casual attire was the mood for this last event as Frank Pellegrino Jr., dressed in casual clothes and a baseball cap, grabbled a spatula  and manned the grill serving up Italian dishes at this backyard-style BBQ.  The family also shared a preview of Italian dishes from the soon to be released cookbook, Rao’s on the Grill.

ba_sized

Yet another Vegas Uncork’d  is in the history books and this one has been the best thus far. This four day celebration features a parade of culinary stars, mixologists and restaurateurs  that would be very hard to match anywhere else in the world  but under the star-studded  neon lights of Las Vegas. Bon Appetit and its Vegas Uncork’d is held each May  and we wait with forks in hand and wine glasses at the ready for May  2013 when Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Appetit will reappear like an annual comet in the sky traveling  up and down the starlit Las Vegas strip.

The summer is descending upon us in full swing here in NYC! The Anchor, a West SoHo staple, is kicking off the short-skirt season by rolling out a nautically themed cocktail program coupled with lobster rolls by Luke’s Lobster… And lots of dancing!

Rifting off the once decadent, early oughts era of elaborate bottle service, The Anchor will be downplaying this dated trend by serving “vintage” coolers filled with summer beers and bottles of rum with an array of house-made “nautical” punches. In addition to the cocktails, Luke’s Lobster will be serving fresh Maine lobster rolls from their summer pop-up located at The Anchor.
