The Las Vegas incarnation of Cathédrale, a French-Mediterranean restaurant from Tao Group Hospitality, will officially debut May 1 at ARIA Resort & Casino. Cathédrale Las Vegas honors the legacy and DNA of the flagship Cathédrale located in NYC’s Lower East Side. Reservations for the restaurant may be booked online.
“It is thrilling to grow our offerings in Las Vegas and build on our existing relationship with MGM Resorts while delivering another spectacular dining destination to the city,” said Jason Strauss, Co-CEO of Tao Group Hospitality.
Cathédrale’s elemental, ingredient-driven menu, helmed by Tao Group Hospitality’s Chief Culinary Officer Ralph Scamardella and created by Executive Chef Jason Hall features coastal cuisine influenced by the regions of France, Spain, Italy and Greece. Signature dishes include The Omelette, filled with crème fraiche and chives, topped with fingerling potato chips and Kaluga caviar, Whole Dover Sole with lemon caper butter, and Clos Ste Magdeleine Rosé, as well as a 22-ounce Prime Aged Ribeye with rotisserie leeks and sauce vert. Tableside highlights include a Salt Baked Mediterranean Sea Bass with rocket arugula, steamed potatoes and Sorrento lemon, and for dessert, Crêpes Suzette for two with orange caramel and vanilla chantilly.
Complementing the cuisine is an expansive wine list and inventive takes on classic cocktails, such as The Quaternary with Ketel One vodka, Plymouth gin, Dolin dry vermouth, orange bitters, Castelvetrano olives, and Kaluga caviar, served in an ice block, and the Quintessentia comprised of Maker’s Mark bourbon, Nonino amaro, lemon, blood orange and egg white.
Designed by globally renowned architecture and design firm, Rockwell Group, the 266-seat restaurant is a dramatic space envisioned as an undiscovered urban landmark. Guests arrive through blue velour cascading drapery revealing a dramatically lit tunnel with flickering candles and carved artwork by the artist Vhils, leading to the lounge where a sculptural metal beaded chain canopy awaits. Further inside the space, a theatrical and monumental ceiling installation draws attention in the main dining room, which is lined with blue leather banquettes.
ARIA President & COO Anton Nikodemus said, “The opening of Cathédrale further elevates ARIA’s dining offerings, with its visually stunning setting complemented by a highly curated menu, unparalleled service and an energy that will attract guests to return time and again.”
Located just off the resort’s main lobby, Cathédrale Las Vegas will be open Sunday – Thursday from 5 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. The restaurant joins Tao Group Hospitality’s current locations at ARIA including Egghead, JEWEL Nightclub and Liquid Pool Lounge.
