The brainchild of esteemed culinary icon, Charlie Palmer, Aureole in Las Vegas captures the East Coast elegance of the legendary New York restaurant with a splashy theatricality more suited to its new home on the Strip. The innovative and impeccable design scheme, conceived of by renowned designer Adam Tihany, provides a stunning backdrop for the seasonal and artful culinary creations of Executive Chef Vincent Pouessel, who has a knack for channeling Charlie Palmer’s individual brand of Progressive American cuisine. With a near daunting array of a la carte, seasonal, and prix-fixe menu options, and an equally staggering wine collection of 50,000 bottles, Aureole creates an atmosphere ripe for the slow savoring of true epicurean artistry.
Aureole’s Décor: Dinner as Theatre
Aureole’s distinctive aesthetic is designed with an eye for spectacle. Each of Aureole’s dining areas sets its own unique stage for epicurean exhibitions. The main dining room expands outward in a bright and airy welcome, with dark wood, vibrant red,and blue accents fitting together in geometric harmony. Swan Court, Aureole’s second dining room, captures the elegance of New York opera outings. The sun-colored room is distinguished by its unique seating environments: many of the tables and circular booths are privy to personal patios, which provide diners with the added luxury of a different environment for enjoying cocktails and company while watching Aureole’s graceful swans in their outdoor pond. A private dining area has moveable walls that function like Japanese screens, allowing parties to include the rest of the restaurant in their festivities, or create a completely intimate affair based on their whims.
Perhaps the most awe-inspiring of Aureole’s design elements is its acclaimed wine tower: a 42-foot pillar of glass and steel, filled with 10,000 bottles of wine that juts dramatically into the air like a modern obelisk. Increasing the sense of drama, Aureole employs “wine angels,” who hoist themselves up on pulleys to retrieve bottles
