June 19, 2014 by VegasNews.com
Downtown Las Vegas now offers authentic Northern Chinese cuisine at Red Mansion. Artfully and freshly prepared, Red Mansion features Beijing-style dishes, handmade noodles as well as expertly prepared house-made dim sum. The dishes are creative, healthy and beautifully plated, using only the freshest ingredients.
Red Mansion is helmed by Master Chef Li Yu, formerly of Beijing Noodle No. 9 at Caesars Palace. Chef Yu is renowned by both guests and food critics for creating menus that feature unique noodle dishes, dumplings, soups and specialty items. Among the menu offerings Chef Yu and his team serve are Yang Zhou style fried rice with shrimp, pork, eggs, carrots and peas; pork or shrimp and chive dumplings; scallop and asparagus with X.O. sauce; Sichuan twice-cooked pork, bell pepper with onions; seafood in clay pot (shrimp, scallop, fish fillet, crabs, mushrooms and Napa cabbage in chicken broth) and Ma Po tofu with minced beef or pork.
Chef Yu has been perfecting the art of noodle making and preparing Chinese cuisine for more than 30 years. His love of food began with his mother, who inspired him to become a chef. He studied at Beijing Culinary School, where he graduated at the top of his class. After graduation, he worked at the Hwa-Tian Food and Beverage Group for 22 years as the Chinese culinary association director. During this time, at the special request of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China, Chef Yu was charged with creating diplomatic banquets for the Prime Minister of China. He eventually moved to Las Vegas, where he opened Beijing Noodle No. 9 at Caesars Palace as its executive chef.
Red Mansion offers an intimate setting comfortably seats up to 60 guests. Richly hued red and gold Chinese décor adorns the restaurant. Red Mansion is open Wednesday through Sunday for dinner, beginning at 5 p.m. and on Friday and Saturday for lunch and dinner, starting at 12 p.m. The restaurant is closed on Monday and Tuesday.
