Red Square Opens at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas
After a renovation, Red Square at Mandalay Bay opened its doors today as a revitalized dinner, cocktail and nightlife destination, under the direction of Light Group’s Corporate Executive Chef Brian Massie

The exquisite menu – featuring easy-to-share plates including Tuna Tartare, Chicken Kiev with Bacon Brussels Sprouts and an impressive caviar selection – takes contemporary American favorites and infuses them with exciting Russian influences. Along with its famous frozen Ice Bar and private Vodka Vault, which guests enter wearing luxurious fur coats, the revamped Red Square will feature an incomparable vodka selection, as well as an intriguing list of signature cocktails, martinis and vodka infusions created by The Light Group’s team of master mixologists, creating the perfect nighttime destination.

The impressive Vodka Vault, where guests will be able to partake in their own bottles of premium vodka, will also feature an exciting social media concept, where guests will have their photo taken and immediately uploaded to Facebook, making the experience at once interactive and memorable.

“Red Square is the first of three restaurant concepts to be helmed by the Light Group at Mandalay Bay,” says Andy Masi, CEO of The Light Group. “The restaurant has long been a staple of the property and will continue to be a hub of great dining, cocktails and high energy moving forward.”

Next to start service will be the casual American bistro, Citizens Kitchen & Bar. Located in the heart of Mandalay Bay, Citizens Kitchen & Bar will feature Chef Massie’s creative and contemporary take on American comfort food, opening January 2013. The menu – which will be available 24 hours a day – consists of a broad range of signature favorites for breakfast, lunch and dinner with highlights including Maryland Blue Crab Cakes, Southern Fried Chicken and Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf. Newly remodeled by leading international design firm Munge Leung – who created The Light Group’s stylish and sophisticated nightclub 1 OAK at the Mirage Hotel – Citizens will also offer a vast selection of beers as well a full service bar to complement the decadent fare. The approachable menu, lively music and comfortable atmosphere are poised to satisfy the tastes of any and all restaurant guests.

Chuck Bowling, president & COO at Mandalay Bay, said, “Mandalay Bay is poised for a major transformation in 2013. Everything from our entertainment to dining and nightlife to accommodations will be re-imagined.   We have been incredibly impressed by The Light Group and their work in the culinary field and know that our guests will be ‘wowed’ by what they deliver.”
