LAS VEGAS, Nov. 4, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Lakeside Grill is now open for dinner nightly, bringing a lively new dining destination to Wynn Las Vegas. Situated on the picturesque Lake of Dreams, Executive Chef David Walzog offers modern twists on classic American dishes in a striking and stylish setting. Lakeside Grill is the second restaurant at Wynn helmed by Walzog, who has garnered critical acclaim for his cuisine at SW, the resort's signature steakhouse.

The menu at Lakeside Grill is inspired by the diverse array of popular dishes that have come to characterize modern American cuisine, to which Walzog applies an inventive touch. Appetizers include small plates meant for sharing, soups, salads and an expansive selection of hot and chilled shellfish. Entrees include pizza and pasta options such as Tomato Pizza with San Marzano tomato sauce, pecorino and basil and a decadent Butternut Squash Agnolotti with sage brown butter. Main courses are divided by preparation—grilled, oven roasted, poached, braised and charbroiled—and include tempting offerings from the land and sea.

Guests of Lakeside Grill can end their meal on a sweet note with desserts from Executive Pastry Chef Kimberly Valdez. A special "dim sum" cart offers desserts divided into nutty, chocolate, creamy and fruit categories—a playful approach that encourages conviviality among diners.

Located in the space formerly occupied by Daniel Boulud Brasserie, Wynn's Executive Vice President of Design Roger Thomas has updated the interiors to lend Lakeside Grill its own distinct character, while retaining design elements such as the 17th-century mosaic-tiled floor. The restaurant is outfitted in white materials such as Carrara marble, metals and leather for a bright, modern feel, complementing the beautiful view of the Lake of Dreams beyond its windows. The design marries contemporary and antique elements—vibrant orange lacquer and white acrylic surfaces juxtaposed with neo-classical sculptures and 19th-century falling angels adorning the walls.

Lakeside Grill offers an experience that blends fine dining with the fun and energy of a lounge setting, where guests can enjoy Chef Walzog's imaginative takes on classic American dishes in a lively and dynamic atmosphere.
