Conveniently located on restaurant row in the Venetian/ Palazzo property in Las Vegas, Sugarcane is an elevated but still casual dining experience. I’ve dined here once, and would definitely come again to try more dishes.
Here is what I learned about the restaurant from their website: “Globally-inspired small plates come from three kitchen concepts – an open fire grill, raw bar and traditional kitchen – overseen by award-winning Executive Chef & Partner Timon Balloo, inviting guests to “kick back, eat well, and stay awhile.” Embarking on a quest to celebrate the simple pleasures in life – eating well and celebrating with friends – the restaurant focuses on a “shared experience.” Sugercane’s raw bar grill’s menu ranges from shareable small plates from our three kitchen concepts to more hardy fare with our large plates”.
Here is how my experience went:
Staff: The hostess was fine, the servers were great, and the manager was amazing! We had a party of 6 and he took care of us all and was extremely attentive the entire time.
Atmosphere: Vegas-like (Read: dark and kinda sexy), but more relaxed. We appreciated the chill vibes as our party had been in Vegas for an entire week for a trade show and our mind and bodies were hurting by the end of the week! Also, wait time was very short for a Friday night – possibly because they have recently opened?
Food: Started our meal with some kind of rose slushy drinks (on the house) which were fantastic. We ordered several dishes from their tapas style menu and I remember enjoying everything. A few items that really stood out that I can still recall are as follows:
*Blue fin tuna tartare (yuzu kosho, avocado purée & sesame seeds)- Must order
*Smoked fish dip ( served w/ potato chips)- Dip was yummy, but chips were a bit burnt
*Whole roasted chicken (truffle marble potato, wild mushrooms) – Simple, but very flavorful
*Nutella sundae (nutella ice cream, nutella hazelnut brownie, cracker jacks)- LOVED it!!
Be sure to stop by if you’re looking for a non-stuffy place with good drinks and shareable food!
