VegasEats : Red8 at Wynn Las Vegas Revisited

The Lucky $18.88 Kung Pao Special?

Red 8 Wynn Las Vegas

As with nearly every piece of non-carpeted flooring at Wynn Las Vegas, the tile work is extremely detailed. Here, the black does a pixellated dissolve into an array of white and beige tiles which denote main foot traffic pathways.

Red 8 Wynn Las Vegas

If one could say anything about Wynn Las Vegas, it is that its thematic interior design is incredibly consistent in very subtle ways. The table settings placemat matches the red alligator skin wall coverings (above the sofa) and on the walls outside of the restaurant.

Sounds like Terrace Point gave you the old ploy some places use on solo diners. "Wait 20 minutes" is essentially code for "We're not interested in having you eat here, but if you're willing to wait, we might be able to slide you in". I had a similar thing happen to me my last trip to Vegas. I tried to go to Voodoo over at The Rio (I was going to see Penn & Teller) and what happened to me was similar to what you had happen. Instead of the "20 minutes" line, I was given "We can have a table for you at 9:30" line (This was at 6:30 on Saturday night, which I know is a tough night to get a table if you don't have a reservation, but it was still pretty early in the evening.) . It was said in a snarky tone, and had he been a little more polite, I probably would have tried the $20 trick on him. I could understand trying to turn me away if I was not dressed appropriately for the place (Hell I was wearing a suit.), but I think had I not been solo, I probably would have been given a table. I go over to the All-American Bar and Grill and pretty much get seated almost immediately, and there were other folks waiting (One of the few tables they had open in the dinner room was for two, so being solo helped.).

I had been curious about Red8, and had been looking at going there when I'm out there in May. Looking at the plate of Kung Pao Chicken, that sure isn't like anything you'd get at the typical Chinese buffet but does sort of look like they went over to the nearest Panda Express and bought a family size of it (P.E. is one of the few places I've been where the chicken used in the isn't battered and fried. Myself, I'm a fiend for their Orange Chicken.). Any clue on how the Mongolian Beef is there?

Thats too bad about the meal, for that kind of cash you expect something better than food court Chinese food. The dude in the yellow pants and his woman sound exactly like the couple we saw at Shoppes at Palazzo that same day. I told Spyder that he could likely make the yellow pants look good!!!
