When the Caesars Palace outpost of Mr. Chow opened in 2016, it was the iconic restaurant’s first foray into Sin City. As at its other locations, Mr. Chow here spotlights cuisine from Beijing, and makes presentation into a spectacle: Guests enter the restaurant through private elevators; there’s a champagne cart, multiple tableside preparations, and a subdued choreography when serving certain dishes. (The famous Beijing Duck, of course, comes with lots of fanfare.) The food is outrageously expensive, but that’s part of the allure; when you come to Mr. Chow, the memorable experience, with a side of celebrity-spotting, somehow makes up for the price.
