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.
A fanciful departure from the usual Vegas buffet (generally characterized by harsh décor and overcooked, institutional food), the Buffet at Wynn, lit overhead by natural light, evokes a garden party.
The 1,200-pound front wheel of an enormous replica Sportster juts forth from the façade of this casual All-American eatery.
Located just off the Strip inside the MGM Grand, Diego serves traditional Mexican fare in a colorful dining room adorned with red banquettes, light green pillars, hot pink chairs, and an eclectic array of hammered tin mirrors. The menu includes signature items like the pollo al horno con mole
A charming old-school ambiance, delightfully kitschy décor and tasty homemade Italian dishes have made Battista’s a beloved Vegas staple for decades.
One of the Bellagio’s more affordable dining options, this pan-Asian restaurant serves a wide variety of noodle dishes from Thailand, Japan, China, Vietnam, and Malaysia.
Julian Serrano's tapas restaurant serves up great pan con tomate, rafts of toasted bread rubbed with tomato, garlic, and grassy olive oil. Serrano is also the chef behind Picasso at the Bellagio.
Romantic souls easily fall in love with Chef Jean Joho's Eiffel Tower Restaurant, which sits on the 11th floor Paris Las Vegas’ half-scale replica of the famous Parisian landmark.
Stratta's haute Mediterranean cuisine has all the robust earnestness you'd expect, given his Midwestern roots: roast squab, rabbit fricassée, foie gras ravioli in truffle bouillon. And the space, as majestic as a vintage ocean liner, is the perfect setting for his culinary heft.
VooDoo Steak & Lounge, the premiere eatery at the Rio All-suite Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, offers stunning views of the Strip from its perch on the 50th and 51st floors of the hotel’s Masquerade Tower.
