LAS VEGAS (January 11, 2012) - ARIA Resort & Casino presents exciting new February Signature Tasting menus at three of its specialty restaurants. The spectacular culinary offerings, made with rich, seasonal produce and exceptional seafood and steak, highlight masterfully created dishes by the talented chefs at ARIA.

AMERICAN FISH by Michael Mina: “American Classics” are updated in this four-course meal created by Executive Chef Sven Mede. The menu begins with a Dungeness Crab Cake made with meat from succulent Pacific Northwest crabs, which are in their peak season during the month of February. Also included on the menu are such favorites as Fish & Chips, Shrimp & Grits and Michael Mina’s famous Lobster Pot Pie. A touch of decadence completes the meal with a Root Beer Float or Bananas Foster. Menu: $85.

Jean Georges Steakhouse: Executive Chef Robert Moore has created an exquisite five-course tasting menu highlighting beef from Rangers Valley in Brisbane, Australia. The region’s cooler climate provides a stress-free life for the cattle under the watchful eye of certified Japanese Kobe ranchers, allowing for the production of extraordinary cuts of beef. Chef Moore’s menu features Rangers Valley Angus 300 beef prepared in four cooking styles: Hand-Cut Wagyu Steak Tartare, Charred Chili-Rubbed Angus 300 Rib Eye Skewers, Angus 300 Braised Short Rib and a 21 Day Dry Aged Grilled Angus 300 NY Strip. The divine JG Candy Bar adds a sweet, finishing touch for dessert. Menu: $95.

Sirio Ristorante: The distinctive cuisine of Tuscany is celebrated with a five-course meal from Executive Chef Vincenzo Scarmiglia. The feast begins with a raw seafood trio of Littleneck Clams, Kusshi Oysters and Branzino Carpaccio. Next, a flavorful Beet & Mascarpone Cheese-filled Ravioli topped with seasonal black truffle shavings is served followed by pan-seared Porcini-dusted Turbot Fillet and a sumptuous Roasted Pheasant Breast with leg confit. A warm Lemon Almond Cake brings this magnificent dinner to a close. Menu: $89.
