The hotel offers an impressive choice of 10 fine dining restaurants, 10 casual dining venues and 6 exclusive bars and lounges, and has more Forbes award-winning restaurants than any other resort in the US. In this post we offer a glimpse of our designs for a special event held at “Wing Lei”, Michelin-star fine dining restaurant.
Wing Lei is a fine dining Asian restaurant, specializing in the “Haute Chinese” cuisine with a mix of Cantonese, Shanghai and Szechuan flavors prepared using Western cooking techniques. The restaurant was the first Asian restaurant in the US to receive a coveted Michelin Star rating and was voted Best Chinese Restaurant in Las Vegas.
A tiered cake stand for the buffet
We collaborated with Wynn’s Executive Pastry Chef Pierre Gatel on creating a dessert display stand for a special event held at Wing Lei restaurant. To create a tiered cake stand for individual dessert servings that could also be used as cupcake stand we used our large “frame” buffet elevation design. The tiered cake stand is designed with a massive rectangular metal frame and four tiers of wavy glass platters, for beautiful double-sided presentation. In order to blend well with the opulent decor of the restaurant, we incorporated elements in extra clear glass, creating a neat yet upscale look for this dessert display stand or cupcake stand. The result was a beautiful, understated dessert display suitable for a fine dining venue.
