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.
At Bar Charlie, the focus is on Japanese kaiseki. We loved: Seared kampachi with braised veal cheek at Restaurant Charlie; hamachi belly with kumquat, pickled pork belly and cucumber at Bar Charlie.
Hailed as one of the most scrumptious all-you-can-eat spreads in Vegas, the Buffet at TI specializes in five types of cuisine: American, Italian, Chinese, Japanese and sugar – lots of of the latter.
Almost embarrassingly decadent, a meal at David Burke, the vibrant chocolate brown and purple restaurant in the Venetian, might start with a colossal ostrich eggshell full of lobster scramble, caviar, and crème fraîche, and go on to DB speci
Renowned for his inventive New American cuisine and commitment to the farm-to-table concept, James Beard Award-winning chef Bradley Ogden opened this namesake restaurant in 2003.
Located at a 7,717-foot elevation, the Mount Charleston Lodge is known for its panoramic views of Kyle Canyon's Humboldt Toiyabe National Forest. Large windows line three of the restaurant’s walls, and the 20-foot, loft ceiling mirrors the mountain peaks that encircle the lodge.
The go-to bar for the Las Vegas hipster set, The Griffin is hard to miss with its iconic neon sign: the bar’s name is actually topped by a green griffin sipping a martini.
Educated at the Culinary Institute of America, chef Michael Mina was famous for his seafood creations at Aqua in San Francisco before he was asked to start this Vegas staple at the Bellagio.
This satellite of the New York City steakhouse original is located on the mezzanine level of Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
An offshoot of the famed Manhattan original, Nobu, Las Vegas offers modern Japanese cuisine from celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa.
