Todd English is on a roll in Las Vegas. The celebrity chef just put his name behind The English Hotel, a new boutique resort in the Arts District that's home to the Pepper Club, serving a fresh take on Japanese-American cuisine. English also runs The Beast at AREA15, for burgers, wings, and smoked barbecue. However, Todd English's Olives at Virgin Hotels is the best representation of what the chef is all about, serving innovative takes on Italian cuisine within a charming, romantic atmosphere. The restaurant also acts as a test kitchen of sorts, so ask about the latest specials, which may feature red or purple pastas, squid ink, or vegan cheeses at any given time. After closing the original Vegas version of Olives at the Bellagio years ago, English's renewed presence in Las Vegas could be a sign of things to come. The chef is planning more hotels and Olives restaurants throughout the country.

After a brief absence, Todd English is back in Las Vegas, rebooting his signature Olives restaurant (which once overlooked the Bellagio fountains) at the new Virgin Hotels. It's an impressive yet comfortable space, mixing modern and retro decor with the energy of an open kitchen. In many ways, the menu is a study in contrasts. Just look to the appetizers, where the delicate bite of small Honey Cakes with creme fraiche and generous amounts of caviar rub elbows with an indulgent Beef Carpaccio, given extra heft and texture from a small polenta cake underneath and thick slices of parmesan on top. It's perfect to share—over dinner and later when you eat the leftovers at home. For Valentine's Day, Olives has a choice of two prix-fixe menus: one is $105 per person with Winter Root Vegetable Soup, Caesar Salad, or Tuna Tartare; Lobster Rigatoni or Truffle Butter Ravioli; Hanger Steak with blue cheese or Veal Parmesan; and a dessert trio of Chocolate Cake, Panna Cotta, and cookies. A sharable option is $150 per person and includes Celery Root, Fennel, and Green Apple Salad with a Fig and Prosciutto Flatbread, Cheese Ravioli with Black Truffle and Butternut Squash Tortellini, 36-day Dry-Aged Tomahawk Ribeye with whipped potatoes and grilled asparagus, and the dessert trio of Chocolate Cake, Panna Cotta, and cookies. Enjoy it with a wine recommendation from the sommelier.
