Las Vegas is the gambling capitol of the world. It is also famous for the many shows that have become a mainstay of the Las Vegas Strip such as Penn & Teller, Celine Dion, Wayne Newton and Criss Angel. What often gets overlooked is the enormous amount of wonderful restaurants that are scattered throughout the city. Let’s take a look at some of the best places to eat that Las Vegas has to offer:
Located at the Nobu Hotel and Caesars Palace
This global chain of Japanese fusion restaurants has become legendary. The Las Vegas location is the largest Nobu in the world. It also features several things that only this location offers. Breakfast is available for hotel guests. There is also an extensive sake menu. Of course, miso black cod, rock shrimp tempura and all of the other classic Nobu dishes are available to delight your taste buds.
Located at the MGM Grand
This is commonly regarded at the most elegant restaurant in Las Vegas. It is certainly the most expensive. The average bill for two people is more that $1,000. If you have that kind of money to throw around, Joel Robuchon offers a dining experience like none other in the city. This is the flagship restaurant for Chef Robuchon’s global empire. The décor, service and menu are all as good as it gets.
Located at the Venetian and the Palazzo
Las Vegas certainly does not have a shortage of steakhouses. However, the legendary Wolfgang Puck’s CUT manages to stand apart from the crowd. It is regularly chosen as one of the top steakhouses in the country by national restaurant review publications and websites. The selection of meat has everything you could possibly want. Australian Wagyu and USDA Prime 35-day dry aged are two of CUT’s specialties. A large selection of house-made sauces are perfect to top off the steak of your choice.
Located at the Cosmopolitan
Wicked Spoon started a trend in upscale buffets that many other restaurants have copied. You will find marrow bones on display at the buffet carving station. Fried chicken is served in small fryer baskets. Individually plated tapas-style servings are all creatively done. The pad Thai is all freshly made with many dishes that are able to be customized to your satisfaction. There is also a large desert selection for those people with a sweet tooth.
