The highly anticipated opening of Salute under acclaimed Chef Luciano Sautto is slated to open next month at the newly renovated Red Rock Resort in Sumerlin (Las Vegas). Born and raised in Napoli, Sautto seeks to infuse Salute’s inaugural menu with his heritage. You’ll notice in the cocktails below the very intentional inclusion of Italian spirits such as Prosecco, Camapari, Cocchi di Torino, and Strega – a liqueur from Campania that derives its yellow color from the presence of saffron in its recipe!
