The ‘Green’ Approach to Wining and Dining

We’re not sure how many trees it will save in the short term, but over time, we could be talking forests.

It’s a more eco-friendly approach to the traditional restaurant wine list, and it’s catching fire in Las Vegas.

At a number of fine-dining establishments in Sin City, the printed, leather-bound book has been replaced by an iPad, which enables guests to sort not only by wine type, but also by price and region.

Among those using the iPad are Alizé at the Palms, Andre’s at the Monte Carlo, Wolfgang Puck’s CUT at the Palazzo, and Jaleo at the Cosmopolitan.

Word is that Caesars Entertainment and MGM Resorts — operators of multiple properties on the famed Las Vegas Strip — will be the next to swap books for screens.

But back to Alizé, which has a very good reason for going digital with its wine list: The cellar contains 7,500 bottles. The restaurant has become one of our favorite places to hang out while in Sin City, even if it’s just to enjoy a glass of wine at the bar while soaking in phenomenal cityscape views.
