Safta 1964 by Alon Shaya
Opening on April 4
Wynn Las Vegas debuts a limited-run celebrity-chef residency, Safta 1964 by Chef Alon Shaya, from Pomegranate Hospitality, led by award-winning Chef Shaya and restaurateur Emily Shaya. Located within Jardin at Wynn Las Vegas and serving Mediterranean-inspired cuisine, Safta 1964 will feature a new version of the duo’s acclaimed Michelin-recognized Denver restaurant, Safta.
This playful iteration of Safta, which translates to “grandmother” in Hebrew, celebrates Grandma’s fictional heyday, before she became a “safta.” Picture her dressed to the nines, complete with her signature red lipstick, driving her white 1964 Thunderbird convertible west, and toasting the town. She’s the magnetic life of the party, sipping martinis, and running the blackjack table.
Safta 1964’s menu will channel her spirit with fun iterations of classic dishes from Safta’s Denver location, as well as new offerings exclusive to Las Vegas from a chef’s tasting to salatim platters, large-format dishes for the table, caviar add-ons, and more.
