SAN FRANCISCO’S AWARD-WINNING RESTAURANT, THE SLANTED DOOR, OPENS AT THE FORUM SHOPS
James Beard Award Winner Charles Phan debuts his first project outside of the Bay area, The Slanted Door Las Vegas at The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. The much-lauded restaurant offers signature favorites along with Las Vegas exclusive dishes.
Guests can expect award winning Slanted Door dishes including Slanted Door Spring Rolls – gulf shrimp, pork, mint, shallot mayonnaise, and peanut sauce; Crispy Imperial Rolls – gulf shrimp, pork shoulder, vermicelli noodles, and roasted peanut; and Shaking Beef –cubed filet mignon, watercress, red onion, and lime sauce; along with exclusive dishes from Las Vegas Chef de Cuisine Lanny Chin.
Designed by Studio Terpeluk, The Slanted Door Las Vegas brings a sense of peace with texture and calm, defined and softened by warmth of material, lighting, and texture. Fumed oak floors and terrazzo tile are a sleek counterpoint to the rough textured plaster walls that line the primary dining space, while the exposed forty-foot kitchen, the restaurant’s main theatrical space, is detailed with subtly-colored wallpaper and the movements of the chefs. Simple marble tables, hunter green leather booths and banquettes, and black leather chairs bring an understated luxury to the restaurant. A long marble bar, kinked in the middle and edged with blackened steel, reinforces the angular nature of the space. A large window overlooking the strip provides a direct visual connection between the busy street life and the calm and relatively rarefied interior, drawing life into and from the restaurant.
Located on Las Vegas Boulevard at The Forum Shops, the restaurant can be found at the retail destination’s street level. The Slanted Door Las Vegas opens for dinner daily at 5:30PM.
