Fodor's Expert Review Picasso

$$$$ Center Strip European Fodor's Choice

Adorned with some original works by Picasso, this restaurant raised the city's dining scene a notch when it opened in Bellagio in 1998. Although some say executive chef Julian Serrano doesn't change his menu often enough, the artful, innovative cuisine—based on French classics with strong Spanish influences—is consistently outstanding. Appetizers on the seasonal menu might include warm quail salad with sautéed artichokes and pine nuts, or poached oysters with osetra caviar and vermouth sauce. Roasted milk-fed veal or sautéed medallions of fallow deer with romanesco are other potential entrée choices. Sometimes a seasonal specialty menu may feature Alba white truffles. Dinners are prix-fixe, with four or five-course options; a vegan menu also is available.
