Harvest by Chef Roy Ellamar Brings Farm-to-Table Dining To Las Vegas’ Bellagio Resort

The restaurant features locally sourced ingredients in its healthy, creative New American fare

Ellamar's Hawaiian influenced dishes include the spicy steak tartare, Kalbi filet mignon, and poke.

Recently we witnessed the transformation of now shutdown Sensi into chef Roy Ellamar’s new restaurant, Harvest. The overhaul has resulted in a quality, top-notch dining venue that’s located in The Bellagio Resort.

By incorporating a more open and inviting space through accents of wood paneling and hand-blown light fixtures, Harvest constructs a welcoming, sophisticated atmosphere. Patrons have the opportunity to see the dynamics of culinary creativity thanks to the restaurant’s glass enclosed exhibition kitchen, giving diners the feel of an interactive dining experience.

Las Vegas' chef Ellamar draws upon his Hawaiian culture for inspiration. Hawaiian influence is tasted through his dishes which feature the best in local and regional produce, seafood, and proteins. To get our meal “rolling,” the snack wagon — a cart showcasing small bites advertised as “delights” — headed our way, giving us our first taste of Harvest’s eye-catching appetizers.

We ultimately chose the Spicy Steak Tartare, with the classic dash of mustard seeds, oyster aïoli, and toast points to begin. However, the eggplant caviar, Kalbi Filet Mignon, smoked salmon dip, and the signature Hawaiian Poke were all vying for our attention, as well. The bowl of clam chowder was by far one of our favorite offerings of the evening. The chowder had a creamy tangy broth that caused our saliva glands to dance with pleasure. Freshness and local sustainability are emphasized at this farm-to-table establishment. From Harvest’s “Catch of the Day” to its succulent Harris Ranch Filet, chef Ellamar’s cuisine highlights the quality and the fullness in flavor of the ingredients chosen each day.

On the Scene: Las Vegas

Thirty years ago this summer, I hit Las Vegas for the first time. From seeing a tuxedoed Telly Savalas playing blackjack at The Flamingo to seeing the sun rise the next day, I was immediately taken—but light years from any real connection to this fantasy paradise in the Mojave Desert. Today, my eternal attraction to Las Vegas is grounded in deep appreciation for its essential embodiment of the perpetual fulfillment, execution and reinvention of one of the most daring, original—and successful—business plans ever created.

In its ongoing evolution from railroad water stop to the Entertainment (and now, meetings) Capital of the World, Las Vegas arguably could have failed any number of times. With water certain to be a pressing issue in the decades ahead, resourcing solutions—energy and transportation among them—have required constant ingenuity. Economic cycles, increasing competition and changing tastes have dictated several “costume changes” for the big Vegas show, too.

Yet, this open lab of innovation, invention and product development always manages to rewrite and enhance the plan—the success of which was never more evident than during my April 2016 visit for Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID).
