Paul Bartolotta is the Executive Chef at Bartolotta, Ristorante di Mare at the Wynn Las Vegas.
Paul is one of a small number of chefs recognized as an "authentic ambassador" of Italian cuisine outside of Italy. In 1997 he earned the prestigious Insegna del Ristorante Italiano del Mondo, an award that was personally presented to him by Italian President Oscar Luigi Scalfaro. Bartolotta has developed his culinary style in some of Europe's most distinguished restaurants and brings his simple yet refined approach to Italian cuisine to Wynn Las Vegas at BARTOLOTTA, Ristorante di Mare.
Here the mission is to deliver an authentic dining experience by either evoking the memory of a coastal meal that guests have experienced or to transport the guests to Italy by creating that exact experience. In fact, BARTOLOTTA, Ristorante di Mare only serves species of fish that are indigenous to the Italian Mediterranean waters, and imports a ton and a half of seafood each week.
This is a favorite Italian seafood soup that uses fresh vongole, Italian for clams, and cannelloni beans.
