Restaurants in Las Vegas
Like everything else in Las Vegas, restaurants here embrace extremes - you'll find everything from retro coffee shops to celebrity-chef eateries to those only-in-Vegas buffets. If you're less adventurous, or just on a budget, you can always find reliable chains and food courts. Here are some of the best restaurants in Las Vegas:
L'Atelier du Joel Robuchon: For a classic celebrity chef outlet, check out this Las Vegas restaurant in the MGM Grand, and which sits next to Robuchon's original namesake restaurant. L'Atelier lets you take the slightly more budget track, though, by way of small plates of foie gras-stuffed quail or langoustine fritters.
The Wicked Spoon: For a modern take on the classic buffet, visit this acclaimed buffet at The Cosmopolitan, where you can enjoy good tomato-and-asparagus risotto, Korean barbecue or the popular (and spicy) Angry Mac 'n' Cheese.
The Peppermill: If this 24-hour coffee shop and lounge near the Wynn exudes a serious Rat Park vibe, it came by it honestly - Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis actually ate here. This Las vegas eatery is great for late-night steak and eggs.
Romantic souls easily fall in love with Chef Jean Joho's Eiffel Tower Restaurant, which sits on the 11th floor Paris Las Vegas’ half-scale replica of the famous Parisian landmark.
Stratta's haute Mediterranean cuisine has all the robust earnestness you'd expect, given his Midwestern roots: roast squab, rabbit fricassée, foie gras ravioli in truffle bouillon. And the space, as majestic as a vintage ocean liner, is the perfect setting for his culinary heft.
Julian Serrano's tapas restaurant serves up great pan con tomate, rafts of toasted bread rubbed with tomato, garlic, and grassy olive oil. Serrano is also the chef behind Picasso at the Bellagio.
Located in the Venetian’s Grand Canal Shoppes, Otto is the brainchild of famed chef Mario Batali and restaurateur Joe Bastianich.
VooDoo Steak & Lounge, the premiere eatery at the Rio All-suite Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, offers stunning views of the Strip from its perch on the 50th and 51st floors of the hotel’s Masquerade Tower.
Located in the Gold Coast Hotel, one mile west of the Strip, this casual Chinese café offers lunchtime dim sum as well as dinner entrées available until 3 a.m.
Named after Colombian sculptor Fernando Botero, this steakhouse contains original work by the eponymous artist, as well as other dramatic touches like huge white columns and colorful mosaic flowers on the floor.
One of the Wynn Las Vegas’ more casual dining options, Red 8 is an attractive option because many of the tables overlook the action on the casino floor. True to its name, the space places heavy emphasis on the color red, from the columns and wall panels to the placemats and booth cushions.
