The Cosmopolitan is getting a swanky new Cantonese restaurant, open as of October 15. Here's a sneak peak.
Helmed by Yip Cheung, formerly of Talon Club, Red Plate will serve up Cantonese classics like whole Peking Duck, Sichuan spicy tofu, hot pot, and dim sum. Yet the black truffle xiao long bao signifies that Red Plate straddles two worlds: luxury cuisine and Chinese comfort fare. Red Plate will specialize in live seafood, flying in fresh Maine lobster and Alaskan king crab.
The team behind Red Plate traveled to Macau, Hong Kong, and China to taste-test regional Chinese dishes, in hopes of appeasing The Cosmopolitan's Chinese tourists, who want a taste of home.
We can't say what sounds more intriguing, the cuisine or the design: Celano Design Studio added high-end Chinese touches to the decor. With vibrant red banquettes and an abstract landscape wall covering, Red Plate embraces Chinese culture. The champagne walls and black metal and brass accents in the bar area define the elegant ambience and are sure to woo guests.
Reserve your table to savor Cheung's take on Chinese cuisine, innovative cocktails from the bar program, and the luxury ambiance.
