James Beard Award-winning Chef Shawn McClain curates a fresh, ever-changing menu of contemporary American cuisine with global influences at Sage. With artisanal meats, sustainable seafood and farm-to-table produce, it’s simply impossible to go wrong here. Sage dresses up the freshest seasonal ingredients and transforms them into tempting culinary creations that take your taste buds on an adventure of their own.
Shawn McClain is no stranger to receiving accolades for his inspired cuisine, but with Sage he has taken things a step further and built one of Las Vegas’ most stand-out dining experiences.
Sage seems like a different animal compared to the haute European and celebrity chefs from New York and other cities imported to Vegas.
Sage is gorgeous. High ceilings, spacious and decorated with sleek, dark wooden tables, plush seats and banquettes with large purple projections of Édouard Manet’s Le Déjeuner sur l’Herbe (The Luncheon on the Grass) on the sections of the restaurant’s walls.
We suggest the wagyu beef tartare served with buttered baguette slices. Sharp caper aïoli juxtaposed with creamy, fatty wagyu beef is good by itself. But the slow poached egg, pickled mustard seeds, and crispy, bitter chocolate plays on the lusciousness of the beef and ads the needed texture and contrasting flavors. The roasted sweetbreads looks like a large pile of bumpy McNuggets but when you bite into them, it’s delightfully creamy and addictive to eat. The slice of thick-cut of bacon gaves it some sweet smokiness and the trumpet mushrooms and white polenta gaves you some needed fiber. Kidding aside, the mushrooms gave it a wonderful meaty flavor.
