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 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.
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.
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.
Established by the creators of The Bank nightclub, this Bellagio restaurant specializes in upscale American comfort food.
Repeating shapes and fixtures in the bar and in the main dining room give this MGM restaurant a sleek, streamlined design.
Enjoy a latte and an egg frittata overlooking Florentine Gardens.
The P.U.B. menu is a cheesebomb of drunkfood for guys who tuck in their polos and dudes who don't tuck in their dress shirts: BLT sliders; swordfish enchiladas.
Located inside Caesars Palace, Payard showcases the talents of its namesake pastry chef, François Payard. The eatery is composed of three parts: the chocolate shop, the pastry shop, and the restaurant.
