James Beard award-winning chef Shawn McClain's teamed up with the Aria hotel to bring East Coast-style pizza to Vegas, in addition to shared plates, small bites, handmade pastas, craft beers, and desserts.
This steampunk-themed resto in Mandalay Bay is combining "the alchemy of food and drink" to deliver innovative 'tails and delectable bites like chicken pot pie bites and bacon-wrapped bacon.
The NYC legend and family-style Italian resto now sits in Caesars Palace, so you can gorge on their massive portions -- from antipastos to pasta dishes to desserts -- whenever you want.
This gastropub from Michael Mina is located in the MGM Grand and serving rare whiskeys, a great beer selection, and pub eats like nachos, lobster bakes, and the Peanut Butter Crunch burger... with actual chunky peanut butter.
An upscale, 10,000sqft sushi spot from Chef Akira Back at the Mandalay Bay hotel. And even though their tag line "Fresh Dead Fish" may not sound entirely appetizing, they DO cover some of said dead fish with Pop Rocks, so that pretty much makes up for it.
The third restaurant from Top Chef judge Tom Colicchio, this 220-seat steakhouse's housed inside The Mirage and cooks up quality, antibiotic-free meats over an open flame which you can pair with an assortment of sides.
Not only does LC have 100 different tequilas, they've also got a $235 flight wtih Gran Patron Bordeaux, Don Julio REAL, and Herradura Seleccion Suprema. Pair that with delicious & authentic eats, and you're golden.
The second outpost of Lucille's is serving the same BBQ goodness of the original: from baby-backs and brisket, to fried chicken sandwiches and smokehouse wings.
This Mexican franchise inside the Palms may be fast-food, but they're still plating large portions of fresh, quality tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and tortas with homemade salsa.
