Fodor's Expert Review Julian Serrano Tapas

$$$$ Center Strip Spanish

Chef Julian Serrano—renowned for Picasso at Bellagio—chose to honor his homeland's tapas and paella traditions at his eponymous restaurant in ARIA. Tapas include classics as well as those with Serrano's special touch. Look for lobster salad with corn, tomatoes, and tarragon; goat-cheese-and-mushroom-stuffed piquillo peppers; salmon with truffle bechamel; and bravo potatoes with spicy tomato sauce. The menu also features vegetarian tapas, vegan tapas, paellas, and several large plates. For dessert, try the arroz con leche with saffron. Separate lunch, brunch, and bar menus are also available. During lunchtime, seats on the edge of the "patio" that face hotel registration and the casino are great spots from which to people-watch.
