I am kind of a stickler when it comes to seafood. If it has been frozen, I can tell with the first bite and I am done with it. That makes Lakeside at Wynn the perfect seafood restaurant for me. Lakeside serves Hawaiian seafood, line-caught by family fishermen in Hana and flown daily, directly to Wynn. You couldn’t get any fresher if you ate it in Hawaii. The Lakeside venue adds an intimacy that is hard to duplicate anywhere in town.
Chef David Walzog elevates traditional seafood menu items to new levels. Take, for example, Dover Sole, which is served with haricot vert, citrus chicken Jus, and an almond crust or a Maine Lobster Bake with King Crab, shrimp, pancetta, roasted corn, fennel and saffron toast. The Lakeside Seafood salad is a great starter with shrimp, scallops, octopus, baby calamari and fingerling potatoes all in an olive sauce.
Hawaiian Day Boat preparations include Snapper with coconut rice cake, pickled vegetables and seafood curry; Mahi, Mahi with coffee and cocoa spice, butternut squash, chioggia beets and pomrgranate syrup; and Shutome (swordfish) with basque peppers, squid ink polenta, crispy bacon and citrus agave.
Sunday Jazz Brunch with live Dixieland jazz and blues is held every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m and is one of the most popular brunches in town. Guests enjoy items like chilled Alaskan king crab legs and oysters on the half shell along with brunch specialties like crab cake eggs Benedict and char-grilled flat iron steak frites. White Pineapple Bellinis, Bloody Marys and handcrafted cocktails flow.
Any time you can sit by the water and enjoy dinner it is romantic.
