Already in her new role, Chef Lucas has single handedly created a brand-new dessert menu for the restaurant, featuring delicacies such as Citrus Chiffon Cake with Brandy Peaches, and Coconut Vanilla Panna Cotta with Tropical Fruit Gelee. Lucas will continue to develop the foundation for a creative and innovative pastry department to take Live! Casino & Hotel into the future.
