World-renowned French chef Alain Ducasse is bringing his culinary flair to Las Vegas. Chef Ducasse will open a brand-new location of his Mediterranean restaurant Rivea and a nightlife spot called Skyfall Lounge on top of the Delano Hotel in Las Vegas this fall.
Rivea executive chef Bruno Riou will put together an epicurean, casual menu inspired by the food markets of Provence and Italy, focusing on “simple, fresh Mediterranean flavors made with the best West Coast-sourced seasonal ingredients.” Menu offerings include crispy socca, a traditional cold cut board, stuffed baby vegetables, an original niçoise salad in a chickpea wrap, and a limoncello sorbet.
“Rivea will bring the soul of the French and Italian Rivieras to Las Vegas locals and visitors alike,” the press release for the new venture reads. “Its comfortable, vibrant environment and seductive menu will make guests feel as though they’ve been transported to those endless summers in the South of France… And at the same time, it’s sparkling and relaxing, secret and select, chic and low-key.”
The lounge will offer 180-degree views of the Las Vegas skyline, handcrafted cocktails, and small plates.
