If you haven’t capped a long night of dancefloor dominance at XS Nightclub with a wee-hours meal at Allegro, you’re just not doing it right.
Nothing satisfies in quite the same way as this joyous Italian cuisine by chef Enzo Febbraro. The post-party must-order dishes are the prosciutto and mozzarella platters, savory selections of parma ham, finocchietta, burrata and bufala mozzarella cheeses and the addictive fried stracciatella. Those you’ll need to share, but you’ll want to keep the calamarata “mac and cheese” all to yourself, pasta rings laced with Maine lobster, black truffle and cheddar Alfredo sauce topped with crispy bread crumbs.
Any time you’re at Wynn and Encore is the right time to ball out, so pass the osso buco D’Agnello (braised lamb shank with vegetable stew) and the 12-ounce pounded veal chop parmigiana around your table. Allegro can translate to “cheerful” or “lively,” but it can also mean “merry” or “tipsy.” One late-night (or early-morning) feast here and you’ll understand every aspect of the word. Allegro at Wynn, 702-770-2040; Monday-Friday 5 p.m.-6 a.m.; Saturday & Sunday 11 a.m.-3 p.m. & 4 p.m.-6 a.m.
