Over the years Caesars Palace has become the West Coast home to quite a few famous old-school New York restaurants: Rao’s, Homestead, P.J. Clarke’s—that’s a lot of New York in a relatively small space. And the list isn’t stopping there. In July, another famed East Coast eatery will join the ranks. Carmine’s, a New York staple for family-style Southern Italian cuisine, will open a 750-seat, 27,000-square-foot restaurant in the Forum Shops. Executive chef Michael Ingino, formerly of Sedona Restaurant and Lounge, will serve up signature dishes and Italian favorites, such as Carmine’s 9-inch-high eggplant parmigiana, chicken contadina, oversize beef or veal meatballs, and tiramisu. Enticing hungry diners with authentic recipes and heaping portions that have wowed New Yorkers for 23 years, Ingino hopes to share a timeless menu with a new West Coast audience. And while there may be some competition in the neighborhood, can there really ever be too much wine, cheese and pasta to choose from?
