— One of the most anticipated restaurant openings of the year is about to open its doors. Michelin-starred chef Alain Ducasse is taking over the old Mix spot on the 64th floor of the Delano Las Vegas with his new concepts Rivea and Skyfall Lounge. The $2.8 million construction budget will revamp the 200-seat restaurant with a palette of "white and maritime blues" and yellow accents.
