Las Vegas is known as Sin City, but there is a lot more to do there than simply drinking and getting into trouble. Such as, drinking and eating! Here are some of the must try restaurants in Vegas, that are a mixture of the more upscale as well as casual spots you could stop at any time of day.
Abriya Raku is a tiny Japanese spot by Mitsuo Endo that only has room for 48 people at a time. The small portions there are cooked over a charcoal grill which gives it a unique flair.
Pieology Pizzeria is a casual dining option where you get to design your own pizza for $8 and it’s cooked fresh in about five minutes. It’s like Subway but for pizza and better. That $8 gets you an 11.5 inch pizza that you can top with your favorites from 30 different topping options.
Tapas by Alex Strata unsurprisingly serves up a lot of tapas. (Small plates.) This is great for trying out a variety of things at once when you can’t decide on a main course, and it’s also great for sharing. Tapas start at $6 and the restaurant also has a lot of wine, beer, and sangria.
Alize at The Palms is Andre Rochat’s French restaurant, which features a menu that is always changing to use different flavors from each season.
El Dorado Cantina
The El Dorado Cantina shares a building with the Sapphire Strip Club, but it’s Central American menu is made up of all organic and non GMO ingredients. A little healthy eating to offset other vices, perhaps? Try the sauteed grasshoppers if you’re feeling frisky.
Hearthstone Kitchen & Cellar
Hearthstone Kitchen & Cellar sets itself apart from a lot of other restaurants by cooking most of its food in food fire ovens. They have an adult twist on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich which gets an added boost. There’s foie gras mousse layered in with those Virginia peanuts and homemade jelly.
Tom’s Urban in the New York-New York Hotel and Casino is the place to go for comfort food with an east coast vibe. Popular dishes include the lobster sliders and carnitas sandwiches.
Andiron Steak & Sea
Andiron Steak & Sea is a lighter version of a traditional steakhouse, in the sense that they offer a lot of seafood and vegetarian options. Pretty much anything that can be grilled can be found there and done in delicious ways.
Baby’s Badass Burgers
Baby’s Badass Burgers is a food truck that got popular in Los Angeles before starting up in Vegas as well. As the name suggests they have some pretty badass burger options, including one burger that has the patty nestled between two cheese melts plus bacon.
Bouchon Bistro has a traditional French menu, and it is the place to go when you want to have a warm flaky croissant over breakfast. What better way to start a Vegas day?
