Don’t miss these five foodie adventures.

The Strip

Tetsu: Chef Masa Takayama’s new restaurant specializes in teppanyaki. Guests pick from a table piled high with meats, seafood, and vegetables, which are cooked at one of six grills—four of which are blackjack-style tables (Welcome to Vegas!). $$$$

Public House: Plenty of Vegas restaurants have tried their hand at the gastropub game, though none as successfully as this one. Nevada’s first beer cicerone helps pair dozens of brews with plates like roasted bone marrow with bacon marmalade. $$

Bacchanal: If you thought you knew the Vegas buffet, you’ll be surprised by the 600-seat Bacchanal. Serving more than 500 dishes from nine open kitchens, the large-scale operation puts to rest the mass-cooked concept: these foods are prepared to order. $$$


Eat: A low-key joint on the ground floor of an old apartment building has developed a cult following. Chef Natalie Young infuses American classics with New Mexican and French influences to create standouts like roast beef on ciabatta with tangy blue cheese, wild mushrooms, and pickled red onions. $

Le Thai: This tiny dining room attracts both power brokers and hipsters, thanks to an eclectic menu with monster Thai flavors. Three-color curry and pork jerky are the main draws, along with the aptly named “awesome noodles,” which are tart, sweet, fishy, and spicy. $$
