  • I’m still shaken. How could Wynn do this? Well, I need not ask, really… I’ve already answered my own question before. Wynn is now all about “exotic, extravagant nightlife”. That’s where the money’s at on The Strip these days, so Steverino is just following the money.

    I know some are merrily declaring fine dining “dead”, but I think that’s a mistake. IMHO there will always be room for smart, sophisticated meals… And yes, there will always be room for amazingly elegant rooms dedicated to serving courses upon courses those smart, sophisticated meals alongside some of the best wines and spirits imaginable.

    I really had an eye-opening experience last month when I did dinner at Picasso. I just couldn’t handle ever losing something as special as that or Robuchon, so hopefully MGM will have the good sense not to close those fine dining gems. (Maybe because MGM is already making millions off day/nightclubs, they realize they can afford to keep up their reputation.)
