The Captains at Aria’s Carbone get a major wardrobe boost, courtesy of designer Zac Posen.
This not-so-traditional table-side caesar (think hydroponic lettuce, special cured anchovies) is fancy, but not as fancy as your wait captain.
The next time you sit down for dinner at Aria’s cinematic homage to the great Italian-American restaurants of the mid-20th century, Carbone—which landed on the Strip by way of New York’s West Village this past fall—know that the captain attending to your table is wearing a uniform designed by yet another fixation of the fashion-conscious: Zac Posen. It may come as something of a surprise to find out the burgundy-hued tuxes are products of Posen’s, who is more known for his flowing, red carpet-worthy gowns than menswear silhouettes. But the tuxes, designed as a favor to Posen’s friends Mario Carbone, Rich Torrisi, and Jeff Zalaznick of Major Food Group, neatly showcase the new Brooks Brothers creative director’s impeccable tailoring skills and feature the kind of vintage-inspired details, including wide-peaked lapels and matching bowties, that recall the glory days of 1950s nightclub fashion. In true Vegas form, we’ll continue to take our service with a side of style. Aria, 877-230-2742
