ALEX, DANIEL BOULUD BRASSERIE AND WING LEI RECEIVE MICHELIN STARS WING LEI IS THE FIRST AND ONLY MICHELIN RATED CHINESE RESTAURANT IN NORTH AMERICALAS VEGAS, Nov 14, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- The premier edition of the Las Vegas Michelin Guide (2008) has awarded Five Red Pavilions, the highest rating available, to Wynn Las Vegas Resort and Country Club. Wynn is the only resort in Las Vegas to receive such honors. Two coveted Michelin stars were awarded to ALEX, Alessandro Stratta's namesake restaurant, and one star to both Richard Chen's Wing Lei and Daniel Boulud Brasserie.
In North America, only eight hotels have received Michelin's highest rating of Five Red Pavilions, only eight restaurants have received two stars and 55 restaurants have received one star. Wing Lei is the first and only Michelin rated Chinese restaurant on the continent.
These prestigious honors bring a trifecta to Wynn Las Vegas, the only casino resort in the world to hold the Mobil Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond awards for both hotel and fine dining.
The Michelin Guide features a selection of the best restaurants and hotels in a given city or region, across various comfort and price scales, and is widely considered the "bible of gastronomy for foodies." Restaurants worthy of a star or multiple stars reflect the characteristics of first-class quality, a mastery of cooking and a superior product.
Named for internationally acclaimed executive chef Alessandro (Alex) Stratta, ALEX offers refined French cuisine in one of the most luxurious and opulent settings at The Tower Suites at Wynn Las Vegas. Chef Stratta creates seasonal menus inspired by the flavors of France. In the hands of this gifted chef, even the simplest of ingredients are transformed and elevated to the summit of fine dining. ALEX has received additional honors including the AAA Five-Diamond and Mobil Five-Star awards.
Wing Lei takes its place as the "Haute Chinese" restaurant at Wynn Las Vegas. Helmed by rising star chef Richard Chen, Wing Lei offers guests refined Chinese cuisine in a beautifully elegant setting. The menu features traditional Chinese selections as well as new, innovative pairings of Eastern and Western ingredients.
World-renowned chef Daniel Boulud and co-executive chef Wes Holton showcase their mastery of French cuisine at Daniel Boulud Brasserie.
