The Lucky Dragon Hotel & Casino of Las Vegas has announced their new culinary portfolio, with five new restaurant concepts being revealed by the venue. The Lucky Drago has worked with Willy Ng of San Francisco, of renowned restaurants Koi Palace and Dragon Beaux, in the creation of the new restaurants. Each restaurant has a unique concept, with Ng working with the casino from the early design stage to ensure each offering is authentic and cutting-edge.

The culinary portfolio is being created by Executive Chef de Cuisine Jacky Leung and Executive Chef Phuoc Luu, both of which who will be overseeing the launch as well as opening of each food and beverage venue of the Lucky Dragon property.
Matt Harkness, the General Manager of the Lucky Dragon, stated that the venue is extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to work closely with Willy as well as his team to map out the culinary programming for the casino, with his expertise being invaluable to the success of the venue. Harkness says the additions of Chef Luu and Chef Leung in the daily operations will make the venue be in great hands to be able to deliver the most authentic and innovative Asian culinary destination in Las Vegas.
