    Grand Lux Café - (Photo right) 24-hour casual dining with an extensive menu selection.

    Canaletto - Authentic Venetian cuisine. The ultimate Venetian restaurant. Created by the founders of Il Fornaio, Canaletto features the food and wine of the Veneto region of Italy. Il Fornaio's Executive Chef Maurizio Mazzon evokes Venice and its countryside with his menu of fresh seafood, beef, game and poultry from wood-fired rotisseries and grills. Mazzon - a native Venetian who has worked throughout Venice at renowned dining destinations like All' Angelo and Hotel Cipriani - also includes northern Italian staples like risotto, gnocchi and polenta on Canaletto's menu. The restaurant's unusual wine list spotlights the lesser-known wines of northeast Italy. Canaletto's unique two-story architecture incorporates many facets of Venetian-inspired design. "Outside" tables surrounding a 40-foot tall statue sit in the heart of St. Mark's square, much like the cafes lining the original Piazza San Marco. Past Canaletto's elegant double-arched bar, luxurious navy blue-striped booths under 16-foot tall ceilings offer a more refined dining experience. Polished hardwood floors blend into terrazzo tile leading to the exhibition kitchen. Spectacular Venetian lights and chandeliers crafted by the artisans of Murano cast a flattering glow. Upstairs, four distinct private rooms - for groups as small as six or as large as sixty- share a central entrance and lounge, reminiscent of a Venetian palazzo's primo piano. With unsurpassed views of the Grand Canal and the activity below, these will be some of the most impressive private dining rooms ever seen. The exceptional food, professional service and remarkable architecture will make Canaletto one of the must-visit restaurants at The Venetian and in Las Vegas

    Lutece - Modern French with classic influences. Its name comes from the ancient Celtic name for Paris, the birthplace of French gastronomy. Lutèce is one of the jeweled pinnacles in the world of fine dining in which all others strive. Eberhard Müller, the successor of Andre Soltner at the famed Lutèce in New York, is bringing his brand of French Cuisine to The Venetian. The menu is ripe with modern French delicacies and solid classic influences that combine the best of classic, familial and newer French cuisines. Chef Müller will bring a menu similar to that of his Lutèce in New York, but he promises a more progressive list of choices. Among the highlights, a nightly prix fix menu degustation-a true "Tour de Force" of courses. Chef de Cuisine will be Robert Kirchoff who will head up this new Las Vegas establishment. To compliment the innovative menu will be an equally tantalizing wine cellar featuring selections of top-producers with emphasis on French and American vintners, complete with a knowledgeable sommelier. This haute French bistro is synonymous with perfect quality - from the impeccable freshness of ingredients to the exquisite presentation of food to the seamless manner in which it is served. Chef Müller has created a leaner, more modern approach to the classic French traditions, typified by a selection of appetizers such as a salad of tender lobster and mango or uncooked slices of Atlantic salmon with a tomato-coriander coulis and entrees ranging from pheasant and beef short ribs slow-braised in dark beer with creamy mashed potatoes to Maine sea scallops in a warm black-truffle vinaigrette and roasted lobster, shelled and bathed in cognac butter. Lutèce, which will be located on the Casino level, will seat 95 inside and 65 out on the terrace and will be open for lunch and dinner

Most of the décor and accoutrements were imported directly from France, including the wooden French door façade from a hotel in Lyon, the copper pots, kitchen utensils, and Coq d'Or, the large weathered cast-iron rooster that stands guard at the entry. The concept is to recreate an authentic urban brasserie featuring a rotisserie and oyster bar and dining al fresco.
