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.
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.
The Scene: It's not uncommon to see chefs Paul Bartolotta and Alex Stratta parked at cafeteria tables under fluorescent lights at T.C.'s Rib Crib, savoring the moist pulled pork, spare ribs, baby backs, and beef ribs with sides like spicy collards and fried okra.
Widely considered one of the best buffets on the Strip, Cravings in The Mirage offers an eclectic variety of international dishes ranging from freshly baked pizza to Chinese barbecue pork buns.
One of the six fine dining options in the Mirage, Stack’s design outshines even the food. Pieces of curved blond wood are stacked all the way to the ceiling, mimicking the shape of a canyon, while circular hanging lamps cast a warm glow across the main dining room.
Situated in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, this sleek steakhouse is designed with brown leather booths, dark wood tables, and stark, twisted tree branches, all illuminated by red box lights.
B&B Ristorante, located inside the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, is a joint venture from Italian cuisine experts Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich.
Southwestern cuisine from Iron Chef Bobby Flay draws Food Network fans to this restaurant in Caersars Palace Las Vegas.
Opened in May 2010, Monta specializes in tonkatsu ramen, a nutty pork broth of unfathomable depth, laden with wood-ear mushrooms, scallions, and a boiled egg. To this bowl of id you can add strips of roast pork belly that dissolve on the tongue.
