LAS VEGAS (March 20, 2018) – Sadelle’s, the popular vintage-style restaurant and bakery that quickly became one of the most desired reservations in New York City, will open at Bellagio Resort & Casino this December. The all-day dining concept will transform- from a breakfast-centric haven to a power lunch hotspot to a relaxing dinner locale - all while delivering distinct culinary experiences with each transition.
Created by Major Food Group, the masterminds behind legendary Italian restaurant Carbone, Sadelle’s will offer all of the beloved menu favorites of its original location, in addition to exclusive Las Vegas selections for its Bellagio destination. Hand-rolled bagels, smoked salmon towers, chopped salads, sandwiches and other New York classics will grace the Las Vegas menu. Weekend brunch, one of Sadelle’s most sought-after meal periods, will become a destination in and of itself for visitors and locals alike.
“Major Food Group creates unforgettable culinary experiences that offer the best in service, food and atmosphere,” said MGM Resorts International Senior Vice President of F&B Ari Kastrati. “Those touch points are what make diners return to their restaurants. We know Sadelle’s will create meaningful memories for our Bellagio guests that will keep them coming back time and again.”
Major Food Group Managing Partner Jeff Zalaznick said, “We look forward to the new wave of energy and hospitality Sadelle’s will bring to Bellagio, its guests and to the Las Vegas visitor. We’re excited to partner with one of the world’s most iconic resorts and to join their food and beverage program – it’s going to be a great partnership.”
Sadelle’s ignited New York’s dining scene when it opened in 2015 and has since received numerous accolades including, “New York’s Best Power Breakfast Spots” by Harper’s BAZAAR; one of “The 18 Best Dishes in New York” by Bloomberg; “The Absolute Best Bagel in New York” by Grub Street and a “Critic’s Pick” by The New York Times Restaurant Critic Pete Wells.
Sadelle’s will open in the Café Bellagio restaurant space, which will close in August.
Inspired by the beautiful villages of Europe, the AAA Five Diamond Bellagio Resort & Casino overlooks a Mediterranean-blue, 8 ½-acre lake in which fountains perform a magnificent aquatic ballet. Award-winning dining, a world-class art gallery, the exquisite Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, the stunning performance of “O” by Cirque du Soleil, a sumptuous spa and salon and exclusive luxury shopping all work together to compose the symphony that is Bellagio. Bellagio is an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM).
