LPM Restaurant & Bar will debut this fall, lending a French Riviera vibe to The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The restaurant will slip into the vacancy left when the 250-capacity Greek restaurant Estiatorio Milos relocated to The Venetian in 2020, giving it a cherished Strip-facing terrace.
LPM’s largely French and Italian dishes are meant to be shared and include marinated lamb cutlets are layered with kalamata olives, eggplant caviar and pine nuts, and French toast made with toasted brioche and served with spiced ice cream. Among the cocktails inspired by the life and work of French poet, playwright and designer Jean Cocteau is one that levitates through the use of electromagnets.
LPM once stood for La Petite Maison (the little house), but the initials are the brand now. The London-hatched chain’s Vegas outpost will be its ninth and largest, following locations in Europe, Dubai, Hong Kong, and Miami.
