Dining and wining make up one of the numerous draws at the newly opened Venetian Macao Resort Hotel, the main anchor of Macau’s ambitious Cotai Strip. Over 30 restaurants cater to all types of cravings in fine dining or casual settings.
Café Deco Macao, probably the largest outlet in the 3,000-room complex, is designed to host 1,000 diners on its ground and mezzanine levels. Located in the South Wing, it provides a variety of eating experiences such as a sidewalk café, intimate booth seating, counter seating and show-kitchen style. Two semi-private dining rooms are on the ground floor, and the third and most exclusive is on the mezzanine. John Cunin, director of operations, said: “I’m confident that Café Deco Macau will become a destination restaurant to visit, not only for in-house guests but all visitors and locals as well, just as Café Deco in Hongkong has been since it opened.”
Morton’s of Chicago, another well-known name, hopes to repeat the success of its sister property in Hongkong. It is situated by the outdoor lagoon. Its hearty American specialties include USDA grain-fed, prime-aged beef, fresh seafood and a range of sinful desserts.
Tenants with unusual menus include Fogo Samba for Churrascaria cuisine, featuring succulent barbecue, Old Neptune for bamboo-pressed noodles and porridge, Worldwide Wings for only chicken wings paired with a gamut of tantalising sauces and 100 brands of beer. Most of the outlets open 24/7.
