Las Vegas Restaurant Week At Caesars Entertainment Resorts For A Cause

Las Vegas Restaurant Week returns to provide tourists and locals the opportunity to affordably dine at some of Caesars Entertainment’s most popular restaurants while also helping to end hunger in the Las Vegas valley during its sixth year. Through a partnership with Three Square Food Bank, 13 participating Caesars Entertainment Las Vegas restaurants have prepared specially designed menus at a discounted price in participation of Las Vegas Restaurant Week.

Restaurant Week will begin on August 27, 2012 and run through September 2, 2012. Guests who take advantage of special Restaurant Week menus will contribute to this great effort with a portion of proceeds from the sale of each menu benefiting Three Square. For every $1 raised, Three Square provides three meals for hungry children and elderly persons in Southern Nevada.

In addition, all 13 participating Caesars Entertainment restaurants have pledged to donate $5 from every meal purchased during this week-long event, meaning guests contribute 15 meals to those in need each time they select a Restaurant Week menu.

Since 2006, the Three Square Food Bank has provided more than 1.5 million meals for those in need through Restaurant Week. Caesars Entertainment contributed 78,570 meals for the community through participation in 2011 Fall Restaurant Week.

All participating restaurants will feature a minimum of a three-course meal. Breakfast and lunch options will be priced at either $20.12 or $30.12. Dinner options will be priced at $30.12, $40.12, or $50.12. Participating restaurants include:

Mesa Grill, Bobby Flay’s acclaimed flagship restaurant featuring vibrant southwestern cuisine, will offer both lunch and dinner menus. This year’s three-course dinner menu highlights a variety of Flay’s famous dishes such as shrimp and grits featuring hatch chile hominy grits with chipotle butter; New Mexican spiced rubbed pork tenderloin with bourbon-ancho chile sauce and a sweet potato tamale or grilled chicken with hot red pepper-garlic sauce and a fresh corn tamale.

Lunch and dinner menus are value-priced at $30.12 and $50.12, respectively. In 2011, Mesa Grill was Restaurant Week’s top Gold Plate Donor, a rewarding achievement for being one of the largest contributors in Three Square’s fifth annual fundraiser.

Payard Pâtisserie & Bistro, the creation of award-winning Pastry Chef François Payard, will offer a three-course lunch and a four-course dinner, both with added value wine pairings. The menu will feature lobster sliders served with mango and fennel pollen aioli, onion soup or spinach salad and a choice of either the fish of the day or filet mignon au poivre with peppercorn sauce and gratin dauphinois priced at $30.11 for lunch and $50.11 for dinner.

Rao’s at Caesars Palace has been called a “culinary national treasure,” widely acclaimed for its authentic, southern Neapolitan Italian cooking and home-style family ambiance. The dinner menu features three courses for $50.11 and includes a choice from its famous selection of menu items including ravioli purses stuffed with bartlett pears and ricotta cheese or Uncle Vincent’s lemon chicken.

Serendipity 3, one of New York City’s most beloved eateries with more than 50 years of history, offers a one-of-a-kind dining experience at Caesars Palace with over-the-top desserts and a variety of savory creations that makes it a haven of comfort food. This year, the restaurant will continue its commitment to fight hunger by offering menus for all meals of the day.

To start, the restaurant will highlight its popular breakfast option featuring a mixed berry smoothie and a list of eye-popping entrée choices, such as Frrrozen Hot Chocolate french toast triple-stacked with strawberries or fried eggs benedict with corn meal-crusted fried poached eggs and classic hollandaise sauce. The world-famous Oreo kiss & Frrrozen Hot Chocolate shot will top it off at just $20.11.

James Beard award-winning Central Michel Richard at Caesars Palace will be another participating restaurant featuring a choice of rotisserie chicken with ratatouille or pan seared halibut with dill fingerling potatoes for dinner.
