POKE AND OYSTER HAPPY HOUR
Lakeside Lounge at Wynn
Visit the lounge in Lakeside to try the new happy hour menu featuring small plates with Big Island flavors. Poke, a name that derives from the verb "to cut," is one of the most beloved and ubiquitous dishes in Hawaii, traditionally presented as chunks of fresh fish marinated in soy and sesame. Chef David Walzog reinterprets this classic dish in a variety of innovative ways including bigeye tuna with cucumber, crisp ogo and ponzu; charred octopus with pickled daikon, hearts of palm and sea beans; pork belly with white sugarloaf pineapple, sweet chili sauce and sesame rice or ocean trout, with avocado, yuzu tobiko and sriracha aioli. Other selections range from Hawaiian fish and taro chips with sweet and sour dipping sauce, and Wagyu short-rib loco moco with sunny-side up quail egg, to Portuguese sausage sliders on Hawaiian sweet rolls with kimchi and roast-garlic dressing. Lakeside also serves an exceptional selection of chilled East and West Coast oysters at happy hour, which can be enjoyed nightly from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
