LAS VEGAS (January 9, 2017) – Chef Charlie Palmer and Mandalay Bay announce the reimagined Aureole, a renowned restaurant that now offers a tasting table experience designed for the way people eat and drink today. Chef Palmer renews his commitment to preparing quality, local ingredients in a bold, American style and upholds Aureole’s longstanding position as one of the greatest wine restaurants in the world. The transformed space offers three distinct dining experiences: an intimate bar and lounge area; an approachable main dining room; and the fine dining Fountain Terrace, all highlighted with warm hues and wine-inspired design elements. Aureole has reopened on the casino level where it has stood since 1999.
“The new Aureole offers a modern dining experience that stays true to the core elements that have made it a beloved Las Vegas staple,” said Chef Charlie Palmer. “The menu takes a ‘less is more approach’ in which quality ingredients are used in exciting preparation methods that don’t overcomplicate the dish presentation or flavor profile.”
The new menu concept focuses around food’s three natural foundations: Surf, Root, and Ranch boasting eight dishes in each category. Selections are organized in ascending order from lighter to robust fare, with a strong emphasis on sharing. The menu was developed in partnership with new Executive Chef Johnny Church and is available throughout the restaurant with a special prix-fixe option available upon request in the Fountain Terrace. Menu highlights include:
