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.

"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.
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.
