We can’t help you cook like a Wynn chef – that takes years of practice, education and a knack for culinary creativity that can’t be taught – but we can help you shop like one. Actually, since culinary boutique Taste of Wynn opened its doors late last week, you can shop like all of them.
The newest edition to the Esplanade between Wynn Las Vegas and Encore, Taste of Wynn is stocked entirely with ingredients, tools and kitchen accessories selected by the chefs at both properties who use them daily.
Shelves dedicated to each chef display his selections – from Jet Tila’s favorite single malt scotch to David Walzog-recommended Shun steak knives. He even calls them “sexy.”
Of course, just owning the tools of the trade won’t make you a better chef in and of itself, but, at least while you’re stumbling through another recipe from Epicurious.com, you can sip on Switch Private Label Bourbon, pop a Wynn truffle and trust that Botero’s signature ketchup will cover any mistakes.
With world-class dining, shopping, spas, golf and entertainment, there's no shortage of things to do at Wynn. The resort’s aquatic acrobatic show, “Le Reve—The Dream,” a creation by Cirque Du Soleil veteran Franco Dragone and Steve Wynn, will leave guests wanting more with its breathtaking performances that conjure an imaginary world. The Wynn Esplanade offers a unique shopping experience with stores including Chanel, Manolo Blahnik, Christian Dior, Oscar de la Renta and many more. Tryst is its signature nightclub, offering a secluded lagoon inside the club and spacious dance floor. Blush, the Wynn’s ultra lounge, draws swanky party-goers. Tryst, Wynn’s signature nightclub, is situated along a private lagoon under a 90-foot waterfall and plays host to some of the world’s most renown DJs.
