Few things set the scene for an extraordinary dining experience quite like the amuse-bouche, usually a single perfect bite, compliments of the chef. Adopting the custom recently are Sirio and Sage in Aria, which offer guests dining at the bar a complimentary amuse-bouche aperitif. At Sage, the experience begins with the bar’s take on the pink lemonade, which includes Beefeater gin, Lillet Rosé, fresh lemon and simple syrup served via a nifty absinthe balancier dripper. At Sirio, get straight down to business with a half-ounce of chilled Carpano Antica Formula sweet vermouth, straight from the first Carpano tap on the Strip. AriaLasVegas.com.
