Las Vegas has been dealt its first hand of five diamonds--the highest lodging and restaurant rating by AAA--in the new 2000 rankings, announced last week by the national automobile group. The diamonds went to the 8-month-old Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas, which is on the upper floors of the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino Complex. (No Las Vegas restaurant has ever been rated five diamonds.) The Four Seasons Resort Aviara in Carlsbad, Calif., also made the list, the only California addition for 2000.

Wait, are those wine fairies ascending skyward, on their way to pluck the perfect vintage from the clouds? Yes! At Aureole - an offshoot of the New York original by celerity chef Charlie Palmer - dining is a show-stopping Vegas glitz-fest. Watch (in awe) as cat-suited damsels are hoisted up a four-story glass tower, filled with more than 60,000 bottles of wine. And the food? Dinner is a three-course prix fixe, with seasonal dishes that reflect Palmer's signature progressive American cuisine.

Let's see, there's a House of Blues club, a Border Grill and a Wolfgang Puck restaurant. Sound like Los Angeles? Actually, they're all part of the $1-billion Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, opening March 2 on the Las Vegas Strip. In a city with a "fake" New York, and later this year adding Venice- and Paris-themed lodgings, the 3,700-room Mandalay Bay mega-resort bills itself as "tropically themed," but it might call itself L.A. East.
