After nearly three years of planning, San Francisco-based chef Charles Phan's The Slanted Door is now open at Forum Shops at Caesars. Situated on the mall’s bottom level, the space features a black and white color scheme with white marble tabletops and a lattice ceiling; black leather chairs; an open 40-foot kitchen; and oak floors. The menu ranges from spring rolls with shrimp, pork, mint, shallot mayonnaise and peanut sauce (and a vegan version with tofu, shiitake, cabbage, mint and peanut sauce) to cellophane noodles with green onion, crab and sesame; and shaking beef with filet mignon, watercress, red onion and lime sauce. The beverage program reflects Phan’s love of whiskey, and includes the Whiskey Cocktail with Buffalo Trace bourbon, Angostura and orange bitters and gomme syrup. The kitchen is headed by Lanny Chin, who recently oversaw Clique Hospitality Group’s venues at Palms. The Slanted Door, Caesars Palace, Forum Shops at Caesars, 3500 Las Vegas Blvd. S., Ste.
