The new MR CHOW at Caesars Palace is definitely unique. Housed in the old Empress Court space, diners enter a small elevator off of the Caesars Palace casino floor and are transported to an all white dining room with a white floor, white tablecloths, and white waiter attire. It’s a little sci-fi, especially when the weird kinetic chandelier/sculpture drops and inverts a blue hue over everything and everyone.
Before ordering guests are greeted with a champagne trolley
offering six by the glass varieties including brands (Veuve Clicquot, $40 and Dom Perignon, $79) that usually only sell by the bottle. Another stand out feature of Mr Chow is the view. A beautiful (not all white) terrace overlooks the Garden of the Gods pool area and is perfect for pre-dinner cocktails or to enjoy dinner sans the albino décor.
Highlights of the menu include honey glazed prawns with sesame seeds and candied walnuts; original chicken satay; spare ribs; crispy duck with pancakes; sea bass with cilantro and ginger; rice noodles with squid ink; the famous green prawns; lobster shumai, and a huge variety of dumplings
Diners can also opt for special two and three course prix-fixe menus served family style with vegetables and steamed rice. The dessert cart includes a tofu raspberry chocolate cheesecake and a sinful chocolate and gold leaf cake.
The wine list is extensive
with over 85 bottle choices. Its custom cocktails are innovative and include the Chow-Lini with champagne and peach foam.
