Despite its unassuming strip mall location, this New American restaurant is often lauded as one of the best in the city. The dining room is intimate and understated, with about 15 white-clothed tables and windows screened with Japanese washi (rice paper). Le Cirque alum Mark Paul and co-chef Stewart Scruggs alter the menu daily to showcase the freshest available ingredients, with possible dishes including seared foie gras on almond torte with pomegranate reduction, and red snapper with broccoli and grapefruit brown butter. The adjacent bar serves an ever-evolving selection of international wines, with approximately 50 available by the glass.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Red velvet, gold-leaf urns and long white tablecloths that hit the floor decorate the glamorous dining room of this Michelin-starred restaurant at the luxe Wynn Las Vegas. For his sophisticated dishes, chef Richard Chen references classical regional cooking styles from all over China.

We loved: Wok-fried Singaporean-style chile crabs; Sichuan-style pork belly with chile-pepper reduction.
