Carbone pays homage to the Italian-American restaurants of the mid-20th century, an era of glamour and tableside service. The famous Captains, who serve at the restaurant, wear burgundy-colored tuxedos created by fashion designer Zac Posen to reflect 1950s fashion.
The restaurant, from Mario Carbone, Rich Torrisi and Jeff Zalaznick, serves New York-inspired cuisine honed at the renowned New York location. The restaurant features a series of rooms including the Blue Room, which features walls composed of tiles from New York subway stations. The retro flooring mirrors the design of the Las Vegas Sands' pool during the Rat Pack era. The Red Room was inspired by the Milan Opera and features a floor-to-ceiling Murano glass chandelier that was originally commissioned for a Ferrari showroom in the 1960s.
Meals start with antipasti including baked clams, crab cakes and sizzling pancetta. You'll also find traditional soups like minestrone and a Caesar or chopped salad.
Pasta lovers can indulge in spicy rigatoni vodka, gemelli di rabe, linguini vognole, tortellini al ragu and more.
For main entrees, guests can choose from seafood favorites like branzino and lobster fra diavolo or meat dishes like lamb chops, veal and chicken scarpariello.
The beverage program at Carbone also has a vintage flair. A rum cart is rolled tableside following dessert offering some of the rarest rums in the world. Classic cocktails include mai tais and The Stinger. You'll also find a nice selection of wines from Italy, France and America with vintages dating back to 1929.
