Picking up where Switch left off, Andrea’s is the newest addition to Wynn and Encore’s restaurant directory. The vibe is more nightclub than restaurant, but the vegetarian menu is extensive, including sushi and both hot and cold Asian-inspired dishes. Keep in mind that they do not allow children after 9pm and reservations are recommended as Andrea’s just opened at Encore a few weeks ago.
Since Andrea’s is a) new and b) sporting a serious vegetarian menu, I went all out and ordered waaaay more food than necessary. First up, we got the truffle edamame, since I can never resist truffle anything. Then I may or may not have (but definitely did) jump for joy when I saw inari on their vegetarian sushi menu. If you haven’t had it, it’s a must try, but not as readily available in Vegas as other cities. Basically, it’s a think pocket of tofu filled with rice and brushed with sugar water. It might sound a little weird, but it’s yummy. (And vegan.) There were other vegetarian sushi rolls on the menu, but I was so excited I forgot what they were.
Next up were vegan smashed potatoes with spicy aioli, and snap peas with ginger. These were side options meant to accompany other dishes, but I had them on their own and was quite happy. Meat-eaters might want them to go with a steak, or they would be great for a table to share tapas-style. For my last course (told you I ordered too much) I had tofu and edamame fried rice with broccoli. It was enough to share, especially all my other dishes, so I would recommend grabbing some vegetarian buddies and ordering family-style.
Of course, I couldn’t help myself from dessert, which offers 7 or 8 dim sum options (choose 3) or an ice cream cone tree. The ice cream tree presentation is amazing, and they also offer vegan sorbets, but I went for the dim sum. You must try the coconut roll, after 1 bite I wished I got 3 of those instead of trying anything else! If you’re visiting Las Vegas soon, stop by Andrea’s at Encore for a delicious vegetarian meal.
