From Eater, Big chef shuffles coming out of Wynn Las Vegas
“Rene Lenger IN at The Country Club, Carlos Guía OUT”
. . . and coming on the heels of
Paul Bartolotta is OUT at Bartolotta, the seafood restaurant @ the Wynn, and Mark LoRusso, the Exec. Chef at Botero – the steakhouse @ the Encore – is taking over. (See http://vegas.eater.com/2015/7/22/9019… – 7/22/2015).
Joseph Zanelli, formerly with Blau & Associates (Honey Salt and Andiron Steak & Sea), will take LoRusso’s former spot as Exec. Chef at Botero. “…we are looking forward to welcoming him back to Wynn as the Executive Chef of Botero,” says Deanna Pettit-Irestone, the executive director, public relations at Wynn Las Vegas. (See http://vegas.eater.com/2015/8/6/91097… – 8/6/2015).
Then, “Botero, the steakhouse at Encore Las Vegas named for the artist, plans to close on Nov. 1 to be remodeled and turned into a new concept. A tipster tells Eater Vegas the restaurant will convert into a three-meal venue.” (See http://vegas.eater.com/2015/8/19/9178… – 8/19/2015).
