Red Square at Mandalay Bay relaunches with a Russian revamp.

Merging American favorites with Russian influences, chefs Brian Massie and Chris Conlon have created a menu rich in taste and culture. While most restaurants typically introduce an appetizer menu first, Red Square offers a caviar selection ranging from Special Reserve Beluga ($189) to Smoked Trout Roe ($22), so guests can find the perfect, indulgent caviar for their taste and price point.

If the crimson-themed room with appropriately named dishes such as Chicken Kiev ($26) and Czar Salad ($11) are not enough to get diners in a Russian-esque mood, the Vodka Vault will. Chilled in a frigid zero-degree Fahrenheit cooler, more than 11 varieties of vodka are on offer in the Vault, including Russian classics like Stolichnaya ($12), Imperia ($12) and Beluga Noble Russian ($12). As if the choice of vodkas was not enough, guests can get the full Vodka Vault experience by donning a Russian fur or authentic Russian military coat and cap while sipping in the vault, for $100.

If the theme of Red Square isn’t obvious from the headless statue of Vladimir Lenin (complete with faux bird droppings), the cocktail menu makes it clear. Created by master mixologists, Siberian Night ($14), Red Scare ($17) and the Moscow Mule ($17) get anyone into a Russian state of mind.
