LAS VEGAS — Derived from the Chinese character for “Wynn” which, translated, means “forever prosperous,” Wing Lei takes its place as the haute Chinese restaurant at Wynn Las Vegas, the world’s preeminent luxury resort. Chef Xian Ming Yu offers guests refined Chinese cuisine in an equally elegant and stylish setting. In the first Las Vegas editions of the Michelin Guide (2008, 2009), Wing Lei was recognized with one star, making it the first Chinese restaurant in North America to receive this distinction. In 2017, Wing Lei was awarded the prestigious Five-Star award from Forbes Travel Guide.
Wing Lei offers guests a variety of mouth-watering menu options, including the Imperial Peking Duck tasting. This entree is carved tableside and served with a choice of steamed buns; or Mandarin crepes, cucumbers, scallions and hoisin sauce with a second course of delicious, diced duck lettuce cups.
Guests looking for delectable seafood dishes may choose from a variety of selections, including the wok-fried Maine lobster, served with scallions, ginger and a sherry sauce; wok-tossed scallops; grilled sea bass; and walnut prawns.
Additional offerings include sweet and sour pork, served with golden pineapples, onions and heirloom bell peppers; and the garlic beef tenderloin with heirloom bell peppers, sugar peas, mushrooms and black pepper sauce.
Wing Lei also offers a decadent dessert selection, including sesame créme brûlée, made with black sesame custard, burnt sugar and sesame tuile, or the selection of mochi ice cream.
Upon entering Wing Lei, guests are greeted with various hues of jade green and gold, a combination often found in Chinese jewels. The entry is an interpretation of a dragon gate and reuses crystals that were once part of the original design from the chandeliers in the front dining area.
The walls are adorned with gold-leaf and white textured horizontal stripes, while beautiful handmade white chenille and gold lurex fabrics are draped in front of each window opening. The luxurious dining chairs feature leather-like material on the inside seat and the outside flaunts an array of abstract flowers with a gold sequence.
New additions to Wing Lei include two antique earthquake sensors that are flanked behind the back bar on clear Lucite bases. The half turtle and half dragon statues are designed to move when an earthquake is recognized. The dining room is surrounded by picture windows that overlook a one-of-a-kind gold dragon surrounded by 100-year-old pomegranate trees.
