Fine Dining at the Cosmopolitan 

Scarpetta

Dine on modern Italian cuisine with a view of the iconic Bellagio fountains in the background at Scarpetta. Located in level 3 of the Boulevard Tower, Scarpetta has earned the reputation of being one of the Cosmopolitan’s most romantic restaurants. 

The name Scarpetta alone speaks of the restaurant’s love of Italian food and all the romance and passion that goes into creating it. Scarpetta comes from the Italian expression, “fare la scarpetta”. 

This expression describes the act of taking an end piece of bread and using it to soak up all the deliciousness that remains in the bowl. It’s about savoring every last bite and enjoying life to the fullest. 

Scarpetta’s menu features seasonal ingredients that are crafted into their elegant, signature meals. A few favorites include the simple but perfect Spaghetti with fresh tomato and basil, the Short Rib Brasato, and any one of their decadent Italian desserts. Scarpetta also offers a Signature Tasting Menu that’s perfect for a special occasion.

Momofuku

Momofuku, founded by chef David Chang, has earned the distinction of once being called the most important restaurant in the world by the New York Times. A fusion of Japanese, Korean, and American cuisine, Momofuku is a modern restaurant that beautifully brings a world of cuisines together. 

The clean lines, mildly edgy artwork, and less intimate atmosphere of Momofuku are a bit different than what you find in other Vegas fine dining establishments. The mood is more relaxed, the energy a bit different, but the food is as decadent as it comes. Truffle Ramen, Grilled Washugyu Ribeye, and Popcorn Octopus are just a few examples. 

Momofuku also features a large format menu with a selection of dishes that are meant to be shared family-style. Each dish serves anywhere from 2-6 people, so it’s a perfect sharing experience for a couples dinner or small party.
