Red Square

1/2
Red Square is an updated version of a classic Russian eatery. The dining room is rich in color and in history. The restaurant offers caviar selections that cannot be found anywhere else on the strip. The bar is covered in ice to keep drinks at an un-natural temperature. The bar itself offers over 150 types of vodka and many of the dishes are cooked with Russia’s signature, Stolichnaya.

Appetizers like citron caviar, smoked salmon, and crème fraiche are light and delicious. Signature entrees include a pan-seared halibut in roasted beef vinaigrette and risotto covered in mushroom basil oil and the hazelnut-crusted Australian rack of lamb. The drinks at Red Square are almost as delicious as the food, if not more. Try the Cuban Missile Crisis. It’s a mix of vodka, rum, sugar-cane, and lime juice; sort of a Russian take on a mojitos. There are also vodka tasting menus available.

For the complete Russian experience, you can purchase a bottle of vodka (starting at $250) and gain entrance to the Vodka freezer where you will be given a table to enjoy your vodka. However, the “freezer” isn’t just a trendy name. You’re actually sitting in a freezer, but you’re given traditional Russian fur-coats and hats to keep warm. You may feel a bit silly, but you are sure to find several other trendsetters in the freezer who are also there for the experience. It’s really “cool,” to say the least.
