Highly Rated & Delectably Healthy
It can be hard to quantify excellence, but the returns are in. Canyon Ranch Grill™ at SpaClub® in Las Vegas was ranked “highly rated” in the prestigious Zagat 2013 Las Vegas Survey.
Canyon Ranch Grill has been discovered by Las Vegas visitors, residents and, of course, thousands of guests of Canyon Ranch SpaClub at The Venetian™ and The Palazzo™. After all, what could be better after a great workout than lunching on fresh, healthy gourmet cuisine with no guilt factor – or enjoying a scrumptious, good-for-you breakfast to fuel you for a day of activities and spa services? Add homemade soft drinks and juices and organic and sustainably sourced spirits, beers and wines, and it adds up to the perfect dining experience for a day that’s all yours to enjoy.
With so many opulent restaurants with world-class chefs in the city, the Zagat rating was an honor, says Executive Chef James Boyer at SpaClub in Las Vegas. “It means so much more than a good review from a critic, because it’s from guests who come and experience the restaurant.”
Making it sensational
Canyon Ranch is an oasis in a city famed throughout the world for indulgence and satiation, says Chef James. “We’re a respite. We take pride in that.”
In any restaurant, great-tasting food comes first, he says, “but often, ‘healthy’ doesn’t come into the conversation. With us, we first ask, ‘is this something you should be eating? – and then, ‘How can I make this taste delicious?’ "Any ingredient can become sensational," he says. “Our goal is to bring out the best in whatever products we use.”
For instance, instead of simply boiling quinoa to produce high-protein blah, “We rinse it, toast it in the oven to add nuttiness, and maybe cook it in herb-infused broth with vegetables and spices.”
The personal touch
Guests return to Canyon Ranch Grill for a number of reasons, he says. “They enjoy both the menu and the service. A lot of our servers and bartenders have been here a long time, and many guests ask for specific servers by name, year after year.”
“The Zagat rating confirms that we compare favorably with some of the premier chefs of the world,” says Chef James. “It says the food we’re producing is excellent – but without all the fat, salt, butter and cream.”
Serving breakfast and lunch every day, Canyon Ranch Grill is located at the SpaClub entrance in The Palazzo® just off the 3rd floor suite elevators.
