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.

Often lauded as the best steakhouse in Las Vegas, this iconic restaurant excels under the direction of award-winning chef and restaurateur Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
Inspired by Tokyo’s Shibuya district, this upscale Japanese restaurant on MGM’s Studio Walk offers inventive cuisine ranging from small plates to fresh sushi, which is often hailed as the best in the city.
With its Moghul archways and amiable staff, Origin is a cut above the typical South Asian restaurant. You could make a fine meal from the street-snacks menu alone: the bhel puri (puffed rice, potatoes, and onions in tamarind sauce) is as tasty as any in Mumbai.
Named for celebrated chef and owner Gabino Sotelino, this lovely sidewalk bistro is renowned for its delicious and surprisingly affordable French cuisine.
Located in the MGM Grand, this gourmet sandwich shop from celebrity chef Tom Colicchio is ideal for a quick, affordable bite on the Strip. Here, patrons can either order meals to go or settle into bright green chairs surrounded by large red columns and white tables on blond hardwood floors.
"For an antidote to the Las Vegas Strip, I head to Pho Kim Long II, a great, casual place for getting together with fellow chefs after work. A group of us usually sits at a big table and orders a bunch of dishes to share family-style.
Right on the lake’s banks, you’ll find the wine cellar–themed tapas and dinner bar, where you can choose from 70 top-flight wines by the glass or a menu of more than 500 hard-to-find bottles to enjoy with fun finger foods like mini finger lamb chops.
Located along the Extraterrestrial Highway near Area 51, this quirky outpost includes a small motel, bar, and restaurant, all of which cater to alien enthusiasts. From the highway, this landmark appears as a white, corrugated-metal building and an otherworldly UFO saucer in its harness.
Enter this airy, all-white modern dining room, which opened in 2006, and the only reminder that you are not eating in the Hamptons is the fact that you had to reach Vintner Grill through an office park.
