The Scene: Opened in 2006, Nora's Wine Bar & Osteria brought wine-bar culture to Vegas. It's the younger, hipper sibling of the original Nora's, a 15-year-old neighborhood restaurant on Flamingo Road whose scrumptious thin-crust pizzas and fresh pasta have inspired a cultlike following. You'll find similarly homey, simple food at the osteria, but the draw here is the Enomatic Wine Dispenser, which pours temperature-controlled wines in one, three-, and six-ounce servings. The metal contraption affords you the luxury of tasting nearly 60 wines by the glass without committing to some expensive bottles (a three-ounce taste of the 2003 Sassicaia from Bulgheri is $47).

What to Order: The best way we've found to eat here is to sit at the broad granite bar and order some cicchetti (small plates) to share, including Parmesan-stuffed dates and polpette agro dolce (sweet and sour meatballs). Don't take the disinterested and downright inattentive service personally (the last time we visited, it took nearly 10 minutes to secure a menu at the bar). Just enjoy orchestrating your own flights; if you find a winner, you can purchase bottles to take home at 30 percent off.
