Resorts World Catskills continued its grand opening celebration with the official opening of Chef Scott Conant’s Italian inspired steakhouse, Cellaio. The celebrated chef joined Resorts World Catskills executives, his culinary friends and VIP guests for a ribbon cutting ceremony, followed by a special opening reception to debut the restaurant.  
 
“The Catskills are important to me as I launched my career following my education at the Culinary Institute of America in Poughkeepsie. It is great to come back to the region to open Cellaio at this beautiful resort,” said Conant. “The area is all about being inspired by the people and natural beauty, which is what Cellaio hopes to bring to the table to complement the Resorts World Catskills experience.”
 
Cellaio offers Resort World Catskills guests a dining experience in both sophisticated indoor and outdoor settings. Translated to the term for a butcher’s pantry, Cellaio offers Conant’s take on the traditional steakhouse, complementing aged steaks with the antipasti, market salads and house made pastas that have become synonymous with Conant’s cooking. A relaxed bar and lounge greets guests upon arrival and leads to a spacious dining room featuring roomy crescent-shaped booths, communal seating and an interactive decanting station. Cellaio has a robust selection of over 500 wines. The extensive list is curated for novices and connoisseurs alike to experience iconic Italian varietals along with boutique, half bottle and large format bottles.   
 
“We could not think of a more exciting way to continue our grand opening celebration than to join one of the country’s premier chefs to officially toast the opening of Cellaio at Resorts World Catskills,” said Kevin Kline, COO and general manager of Resorts World Catskills. “It is an honor to welcome Scott back to the Catskills, where he began his culinary journey, to bring this exceptional dining experience to our guests.”
