Hakkasan at the Fontainebleau Resort is an unexpected gem of a restaurant tucked quietly within the heart of a busy, Las Vegas style property. While so much of the hotel is glitzy, bright and glamorous, this elegant Asian eatery is designed in subtle shades of deep blue and glowing indirect lighting that evokes a sense of the quiet reaches under the sea. Framed in dark, intricately cut woodwork panels the long turquoise banquettes make a perfect setting for an extended evening with friends or a romantic date. Navigating the menu is quite easy with the help of an eager waitstaff who talk about each dish with confidence and make great suggestions.

If your only experience with Chinese food is the neighborhood takeout, Hakkasan will be a revelation. Familiar dishes are crafted with the finest ingredients and creations you’ve never heard of will have you ready to return again soon. Pair a variety of appetizers, dumplings and BBQ meats with any of the tropical cocktails crafted at the bar. Conspire with your dining companions to sample and share a few entrees so everyone can experience an array of the kitchen’s innovations. Popular for weekend brunch, Hakkasan takes dim sum to new heights Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
