Allegro, the latest restaurant in the Wynn Las Vegas dining collection, is now open. Located at the cornerstone of theater row, Allegro offers a new take on Italian-American favorites. Inspired by the literal translation for the musical term ‘allegro’ – a cheerful, brisk and lively tempo – this busting Italian eatery provides Executive Chef Enzo Febbraro a stage from which to create classic Italian-American cuisine, merging old-world tradition and new-world innovation.
“I am pleased to be part of the team at Wynn Las Vegas and to have the opportunity to put my signature touches on Allegro,” said Febbraro. “The menu at Allegro is an extension of my rustic, at-home cooking style and I want to produce an authentic, feel-good experience for all of our guests. My goal is to create what I like to call an ‘Allegro state of mind’ in which all of our guests leave blissfully happy and satisfied from a fantastic meal.”
At Allegro, Febbraro has crafted an ingredient-driven menu that salutes Italian cooking, incorporates his signature style and focuses on beloved Italian-American favorites. Chef’s specialties include baked lasagna Napoletana, featuring his Sunday meat ragu, meatballs and smoked mozzarella; ossobuco d’agnello, made with a bone-in lamb shank, vegetable stew and pappardelle pasta; as well as veal chop parmigiano, featuring a 14-ounce breaded veal chop, tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella. Seafood lovers will delight in the risotto pescatora, featuring shrimp, scallops, calamari, mussels and clams; or the roasted pink snapper served with an escabeche of vegetables and salmoriglio sauce.
Allegro at Wynn Las Vegas is open for dinner nightly from 5:30 p.m., late-night menu available until 6 a.m. For reservations, please call (702) 770-DINE. For more information, please visit www.wynnlasvegas.com.
