Charlie Trotter Goes To Vegas


No, it’s not an old black and white 50s movie…

20 years after opening his world renowned and self named restaurant in Chicago, Charlie Trotter is returning to Las Vegas.

Restaurant Charlie is located in the newly opened Palazzo resort, sister property to the Venetian. Unlike chef Trotter’s namesake restaurant, the Vegas property offers an a la carte menu, allowing guests to pick and choose, customizing their menu. Dishes on the menu focus primarily on seafood, but there are a few plates involving fare from the land.

A kitchen table is available at Restaurant Charlie, in the form of a glittering glass and stainless steel loft from which to dine and view the chefs at work. A special tasting menu will be offered here for your enjoyment.

The highlight of Restaurant Charlie may in fact be Bar Charlie. Best described as a restaurant within a restaurant, Bar Charlie is an intimate 18 seat sushi/sashimi bar serving what they describe as the ultimate expression in luxury seafood. If this is your target, be sure to book far in advance.

If you’re like me and go to Sin City more for the food than the gambling, give Restaurant Charlie and try and let us know what you think.
