The retail center on the southwest corner of West Spring Mountain Road and South Stober Boulevard will soon be home to Palette Tea Lounge. Opening at 4601 Spring Mountain Rd, Palette will offer cooked-to-order dim sum, signature seafood dishes, and cocktails.
Palette Tea Lounge is a sister concept to San Francisco’s Palette Tea House (another Palette-branded location, Palette Tea Garden, is also in San Francisco). Like its San Francisco sister, Palette Tea Lounge is looking to enliven the dim sum space.
“Some old dim sum places are a bit outdated,” a representative of the restaurant told What Now on Thursday. In order to update their approach, Palette has “created a smaller menu, with a better presentation and better, higher-end food quality.”
In addition to dim sum, Palette will offer signature dishes including Peking Duck and several seafood choices. Its menu will not be identical to that of the San Francisco restaurant, the representative said, but will feature a number of similarities. In San Francisco, Palette Tea House offers a selection of dumplings and bao, signature entrees like Dungeness Crab and Honey Walnut Prawns, and Vegetable dishes like Braised Eggplant with Tofu.
Palette Tea Lounge will also offer a small cocktail menu.
Located not far from the strip, Palette is hoping to catch some of the tourist crowd known to occasionally wander into Chinatown in search of a great meal, the representative told What Now. “We’re trying to bring a very unique dining experience to Vegas.”
Palette Tea Lounge is expected to open in June or July.
