Just like fruits and vegetables, there are natural seasons for seafood and Lakeside chef David Walzog follows them to offer diners the best seasonal delicacies year-round. Anchored by a vast variety of iced shellfish, ocean-fresh fin-fish and lobster selections from around the world, the menu at Lakeside in the Wynn Las Vegas places seafood center stage. Walzog sources produce and seafood from small ranches, day boat fishermen and artisanal farmers. Depending on the time of year you visit Lakeside, seasonal dishes you might see include soft-shell crabs, Copper River salmon, halibut and a selection of oysters that are available certain times during the year. Dish accompaniments will change too depending on the season. For example, during winter, a scallop dish might be paired with celery root puree and apples. In the springtime, those scallops might be accompanied by asparagus, fava beans or fresh peas. Your server will tell you about the nightly specials, — which are often featured because of seasonality.
