Renowned Chicago chef, Tony Hu has opened Lao Sze Chuan at the Palms. Lao Sze Chuan at the Palms is the seventh location of the popular Chicago-based restaurant and Hu's first Las Vegas venture. The restaurant offers a robust menu of Sze Chuan cuisine and a selection of popular Mandarin, Cantonese, Hunan and Shanghai dishes made especially for the Palms location.
Taking frequent visits to China to research culinary trends, Hu continuously modifies the menu to reflect the latest in Chinese cuisine and a range of options designed for those who appreciate true Chinese flavor. Hu's dedication to providing genuine Asian fare is found in each of his restaurants, particularly Lao Sze Chuan, with Lao symbolizing old, traditional and authentic in Mandarin, and Sze Chuan naming the province from which the spicy cuisine originates.
Lao Sze Chuan at the Palms is a reinvention of Hu's popular restaurant enhanced with a range of new menu options and a vibrant atmosphere. The menu features more than 200 beef, chicken, pork and seafood options, along with a variety of soups, dim sum and focuses on traditional hot pots. In addition to traditional Sze Chuan dishes and a "best of" selection of cuisine from other Asian influences, Hu's menu offers popular dishes adapted to American tastes.
The Palms location features several new menu items including the Sze Chaun Peppercorn Fish. In addition to new dishes, Lao Sze Chuan serves signature entrees from the Chicago locations like Tony's Chicken with Three Chili, a spicy favorite famous at his restaurants.
Along with a delicious menu, Lao Sze Chuan features a stylish, and open design unique to Las Vegas. The 150-seat restaurant is draped with various textiles, vibrant décor, high ceilings, chandeliers and traditional Chinese elements. Metallic gold and bold red accents highlight the casual venue, with eye-catching ceramic sculptures and culturally-inspired artwork adorning the space. Guests can also enjoy their meal in an outdoor environment on the patio overlooking Palms Pool & Dayclub.
