Aug 12, 2015  |   Contributor: Susan Kime

Julian Serrano is a James Beard award-winning, Michelin-starred chef known not only in Las Vegas, but worldwide.

While most people see the famous Bellagio Fountains from a distance, the best view by far is from Lago’s shaded, waterfront patio. Guests are only about 30 to 40 feet away from the dancing fountains as they dine, sometimes even feeling the fine spray—which is refreshing instead of bothersome.

A few years ago a leading panel of UK food professionals named Spain’s San Sebastian “the greatest gastronomic resort on the planet” for its one-two punch: a food scene which was described as “fiercely distinct, passionately produced and on the gastronomic cutting edge” and its overall qualities as a holiday destination.
