The Strip

Restaurants in The Strip

With colorful neon lights, cozy black booths, faux vines and a blazing fire pit surrounded by bubbling water, Peppermill’s Fireside Lounge is an old-school Vegas experience like no other.

B&B Ristorante, located inside the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, is a joint venture from Italian cuisine experts Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich.

Stone walls, waterfalls, and chrome accents adorn the dining room at this Bellagio restaurant, which offers an eclectic mix of New American, Asian, and Italian cuisine.

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.

Featuring some of the best views in Vegas, Mix is located on the 64th floor of THEhotel at Mandalay Bay and is lined with enormous wall-to-wall windows overlooking the Strip.

During the evening, glowing columns and huge suspended lamps provide light for the square wooden tables with black chairs and booths in Sushi Roku’s dining room. Daytime, however, brings shining rays through the huge wall of glass windows that also display great views of the strip.

Though it serves 4,000 patrons a day, the Bellagio buffet manages to balance quantity and quality. The dining room's high traffic requires constant turnover at the 12 food stations, which range from seafood to pasta.

A 10,000-gallon, double archway aquarium serves as the entrance to this jungle-themed MGM restaurant, where snakes hang from branches and animatronic elephants peek through the trees beside waterfalls.

Upon entering this upscale New American restaurant in Mandalay Bay, patrons are immediately wowed by a four-story glass wine tower where harnessed “wine fairies” are hoisted up to retrieve bottles from the 10,000-plus selection.

Dishing up what many consider the best Italian fare in Las Vegas, Rao’s at Caesars Palace is a more accessible offshoot of the New York original, which has occupied the same spot on 114 Street since 1896 and is known for being a tough place to get reservations.

Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck expanded his wildly popular Beverly Hills eatery Spago in 1992, introducing the restaurant to the city of Las Vegas—and Las Vegas to contemporary fine dining.
