Four Summerlin restaurants have been recognized in the 26th annual Las Vegas Review Journal’s Best of Las Vegas poll.
They include Café Bleu at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts Las Vegas, Vintner Grill and two restaurants at Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa — Terra Rossa and Grand Café.
Café Bleu, the fine dining, student-run restaurant at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts Las Vegas, was voted as the editors’ pick in the “undiscovered restaurant” category.
The restaurant offers limited seatings for lunch and dinner, Tuesday through Friday and serves elegant, gourmet meals.
It features an open kitchen where watching your food be prepared is part of the fun, according to Tom Warden, vice president of community and government relations for The Howard Hughes Corp., developer of Summerlin.
Vintner Grill, an American-style bistro that opened in Howard Hughes Plaza in 2006, was recognized as the editors’ pick in the new restaurant category.
As the name implies, the restaurant features an extensive wine list and serves lunch and dinner.
Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa’s Terra Rossa and Grand Café took top honors in the casino restaurant division — Grand Café in the coffee shop category and Terra Rossa in the Italian restaurant category.
“Considering that both restaurants have only been open about a year since Red Rock opened last April, it’s remarkable that they took top honors in their respective categories,” Warden said. “Summerlin’s dining opportunities are growing with the community and rank as some of the valley’s best.”
Developed by The Howard Hughes Corp., an affiliate of General Growth Properties Inc., Summerlin began to take shape in 1990 and by 1992. The 22,500-acre master-planned community located along the western rim of the Las Vegas Valley, features an unparalleled number of amenities and is home to more than 95,000 residents.
With as many as 7,500 acres still to develop, including its urban core, Summerlin Centre, the community is home to more than 100 neighborhood and village parks, more than 150 completed miles of the Summerlin trail system, houses of worship, shopping centers, cultural and medical facilities, business parks and more than 80 model homes.
Homes are available in a variety of styles — from single-family to townhomes, condominiums and lofts — priced from the low $200,000s to more than $2 million. Custom home sites in The Ridges are priced from the $500,000s.
Luxury apartment homes offer monthly rents starting from the low $1,000s.
