Of course, Wynn Resort Las Vegas is famous for being over the top. There’s a reason the hotel keeps earning top honors from the 2011 Forbes Travel Guide Star awards (formerly Mobil Travel Guide Star awards).

Feeling like a great dinner? Perhaps you’re you in the mood for truffles? Chef Theo Schoenegger, the executive chef at Sinatra restaurant features his truffle indulgence menu this December. It’s a three course meal showcasing decadent imported white truffles from Italy.

Why not try these delicacies in an array of distinctive dishes, including homemade pastas and slow cooked risottos, or perhaps truffles with creamy soft polentas? General Manager, Johnathan Husby, will make sure you have an exquisite evening.

Bartolotta’s restaurant presents the traditional Christmas Eve Feast of Seven Fishes. Chef Paul Bartolotta, for whom the restaurant is named, is a two time James Beard Award winner.

So, if it’s Italian food you love, try The Feast, featuring Ligurian octopus salad, baked sea scallops with aromatic herb crust, warm seafood salad, spaghetti with clams and broccoli rapine, along with a whole fish baked in salt crust with Sicilian citrus sauce.

Chef Paul flies his seafood in fresh from the Mediterranean. This is truly  a culinary delight.
