Retro by Voltaggio
Retro by Voltaggio lives up to its name, serving elevated, fine dining-level cuisine that feels like a playful trip back in time to the '80s and '90s. The year-long pop-up by Michael and Bryan Voltaggio (who were the top two finishers during a highly competitive season of Top Chef) is inspired by comfort food favorites the brothers grew up on as kids.
The dishes include chicken pot pie with black truffle sauce, a spicy take on Spaghettios (dubbed "VoltaggiO's," served from a can tableside) and pot roast made with slow-cooked beef cheeks and presented in old-school CorningWare. Vegas-based food writers Al Mancini, Rob Kachelriess and Emmy Kasten all ranked Retro’s menu as one of the most creative in Sin City.
Everything is served in a dining room decorated with vintage record albums, Nintendo consoles, board games and other relics of the past. Even the cocktail menu feels straight out of an '80s chain restaurant, upgraded with quality spirits and inventive craft touches. So try new and improved takes on Long Island Iced Tea, Wine Coolers and other fun sips that were popular in a gone, but not forgotten era.
Act quickly, however: Retro’s year-long “residency” is scheduled to end in late spring of 2024.
