Las Vegas’s own Michelin-starred Chef Julian Serrano is at it once again. He will put his special touch on Italian cuisine with signature small plates at his newest concept Lago. Opening in April overlooking Bellagio’s iconic fountains, His menu will tantalize guests to explore and share a variety of his gastronomic delights that show off his skill and passion.
“It has been an absolute thrill to re-imagine Italian cuisine for today’s small-plate culinary era. This restaurant will bring together food lovers of all generations who crave exciting and thought-provoking dishes along with excellent service and high culinary craftsmanship,” He said.
Get your palates ready to indulge in a delightfully pleasing selection of raw seafood from Cedro-Marinated Shrimp to succulent Tuna served with blood orange. From the sea, expect Shrimp-Stuffed Calamari served with intertwining tentacles or the Pesce Intero which is a whole grilled fish presented atop a bed of lemons and drizzled with olive oil.
Lago will not just be about small plates. Grab a knife a dive into a One-Pound Bone-In Rib Eye a Fork Tender Red Wine Braised Veal Shank and even Whole Roasted Suckling Pig. Offering something for everyone Lago will feature Truffle-Style Mushrooms, Roman Gnocchi with blue cheese, and Caponata , a sweet & sour Sicilian eggplant.
Now that’s Italian! Lago will show off a nice selection of Baked Cannelloni full of succulent pulled short ribs, or the creamy Mushroom Risotto with hearty pieces of tripe and fresh mint. Of course we can’t leave out the pizza. Guests will be able to enjoy a classic Margherita, the Nduja topped with gorgonzola and spicy calbrese spread and a Bianca, covered in smoked provolone and arugula.
