Big flavors and even bigger sandwiches
Portland Chef Rick Gencarelli brings Lardo’s ruthlessly bold and flavorful approach to The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas as an over-the-top sandwich eatery. Primarily a pork sandwich shop that uses authentic ingredients made into carefully crafted standouts, Lardo’s menu features such favorites as the Korean Pork Shoulder sandwich, and Lardo’s signature dirty fries, coupled with a selection of Chef Gencarelli’s favorite beers on tap, sourced directly from Portland.
Chef Bio: Rick Gencarelli
Rick Gencarelli's culinary roots start in New York, where he was a student at The Culinary Institute of America. After stops in San Francisco, Connecticut, New York City, and Vermont, Gencarelli and his family opened Lardo as a food cart in 2010. Why a food cart? It was the best way to get to know Portland and for Portland to get to know him. Now he's branched out with his first location outside of the Rose City at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
