Celebrity chef Rick Moonen’s RM Seafood at Mandalay Bay is a hip and modern twist on the seafood restaurant with an emphasis on fresh and inventive dishes and sustainability.
The restaurant features two separate sections: an elegant upstairs area with refined dark woods, white linens and glass and chrome accents, while the downstairs is a more casual dining experience designed to look like a cruise ship.
Moonen is obsessed with the idea of sustainability and tries to educate people that if we don’t slow down on our consumption, popular fish like salmon and tuna will be extinct within a few decades. While many common fish are on the menu, Moonen also presents rare and unique seafood options like Wreckfish and Sea Urchin in order to take some of the pressure off the more well known fish.
The casual downstairs section is equally creative, with a famous RM Sushi Bar, raw bar and great selection of entrees like Arctic char, lobster Bolognese or Alaskan Halibut. Before you eat, enjoy a cocktail in the downstairs section’s classy lounge area.
The upstairs fine dining section is elegantly inventive, with appetizers like lobster bisque and seared diver scallops, specialty entrees like pan seared Pacific halibut, wild Alaskan salmon and hazelnut crusted rack of lamb, and mouthwatering desserts including an ice-cream flight in which you get to guess at the various unique flavors.
With an inventive menu that emphasizes sustainability and creative ingredients, RM is one of the best seafood restaurants in Las Vegas… whether you dine upstairs or downstairs.
