David Chang hosted a preview dinner for his upcoming Palazzo restaurant, Majordomo Meat & Fish, at his Majordomo in Los Angeles last week. But he was quick to inform the invited guests: “I have no idea what’s actually gonna be on the menu when we open up.”
Nonetheless, he said, “We are serving you some of the things that we are working on, and it’s a glimpse into what it might be.” The meal included a seafood course of shrimp cocktail, oysters, scallops and kanpachi; Chinese bing bread with ham, spiced chickpea spread and caviar butter; shishito peppers stuffed with sausage; noodles with Dungeness crab; and smoked prime rib carved tableside. Majordomo Meat & Fish is expected to open this winter in the space that formerly housed Carnevino, with a casual spot next door that will serve slider-style sandwiches called Tasties. ▶ reviewjournal.com/majordomo

Lagasse’s Stadium at Palazzo will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a Golden Knights season-opening party Friday night. While the season actually gets underway Wednesday at T-Mobile Arena, Friday will mark the team’s rematch with the Sharks at SAP Center in San Jose, California. Mark Shunock, the in-arena host from the Vegas Golden Knights broadcast team, will serve as the official emcee for the watch party, which also will include puck competitions, dance-offs and beer contests. The puck drops at 7:30 p.m.
Lucas Knox will depart in mid-October from his job as executive chef at The Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris Las Vegas. From what we hear, Knox is headed to an established restaurant elsewhere on the Strip; details to come.
