Chef Tony Hu has brought his Chicago-based Lao Sze Chuan to Palms Casino Resort. The restaurant, which opened in September, serves Sze Chuan cuisine as well as Mandarin, Cantonese, Hunan, and Shanghai dishes. The space, richly decorated in jewel tones, features dramatic chandeliers, ceramic sculptures of Buddha, and modern takes on traditional Chinese motifs such as an oversize bamboo print on pillars throughout the dining room. For full buyouts, the restaurant seats about 185 or holds 287 for receptions.
