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.

This is one of the (very) few restaurants in town. An old-timey greasy spoon, it serves good-size portions and does breakfast best (consider breakfast for dinner).

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.

Educated at the Culinary Institute of America, chef Michael Mina was famous for his seafood creations at Aqua in San Francisco before he was asked to start this Vegas staple at the Bellagio.

Society Café dishes out late-night comfort food. Cap of the night with roasted tomato bisque, with a salad of Rosso Bruno tomatoes and creamy, tangy burrata.

For dinner, forgo the unreliable buffets in favor of filet mignon, osso buco, or king crab legs at this restaurant in the Primm Valley Resort & Casino.

Of the six whacked-out burgers on offer, the highlight is an homage to the Vietnamese banh mi, blending beef, pork, shrimp, and pork pâté with pickled carrots and daikon. Fresh lemongrass, mint, and basil add brightness, while fish sauce supplies depth. It is intensely satisfying.

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.
