The Cosmopolitan Hotel is about to add to our city’s culinary credibility. The soon-to-open resort adjacent to CityCenter recently released a list of high-pedigree eateries, all slated to open later this year.
According to the dish, the brains behind famed Blue Ribbon restaurant, Bruce and Eric Bromberg, will open a Las Vegas installation of the popular eatery; The One Group will open a steakhouse called STK; Costas Spiliadis will introduce the first authentic Greek restaurant to the Strip, Estiatorio Milos; Scott Conant will bring his Italian standout, Scarpetta, to town.; and chef David Myers is gearing up to bring the lone Los Angeles-based eatery, Comme Ca, to Cosmopolitan.
Each will help “make the mid-Strip a real food destination,” says Vegas Seven food critic Max Jacobson. He credits Cosmo CEO John Unwin for raising the bar, saying, “He’s a real foodie.”
And the list is far from complete. More announcements are expected as the 2,995-room hotel nears completion.
“There will probably be something else that’s pan-Asian, something that’s not Japanese or sushi,” Jacobson predicts. “I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re looking around San Francisco for Chinese chefs.”
