If only you could eat all of the tacos at Tom's Urban all at once...
Open 24 hours a day, Hexx Kitchen & Bar in the Paris Hotel is a destination for breakfast, lunch, dinner, late-night snacks, and cocktails. The menu airs on the side of comfort: breakfast comes in varieties of healthy (maple Greek yogurt parfait), savory (bacon and egg pizza with scrambled eggs and mozzarella cheese), and sugary (cinnaroll waffle with cream cheese frosting, cinnamon, and sugar), while dinner globetrots from the Mediterranean to the South, with dishes like tagliatelle shrimp scampi and spicy jambalaya. If you’re feeling particularly indulgent, you’ll want to order the Colossal Bloody Mary, formulated with basil-infused vodka, jumbo shrimp, Alaskan king crab, bacon, beef stick, peppers, and pickled vegetables, all served in a mini pitcher. As if Hexx needed to further impress, it offers a tour of its state of the art chocolate-making exhibition kitchen that churns out small batches of gourmet cocoa.
If you’re going to pick one place in Las Vegas to order fried chicken, make it Yardbird. The organic, pasture-raised chicken arrives at the table juicy and golden after a 27-hour brining process and is served best alongside a cheddar waffle with maple bourbon syrup and chilled, spicy watermelon.
Triple George Grill's got private booths that feel like studio apartments, giving their old-school digs a spacious feel. Rocking one of the most distinctive steaks in Vegas -- the Porcini Crusted Ribeye made with a sweet and spicy mushroom rub -- TGG brings classic cuts of meat to the next level.
Because man can't live on not-lobster alone, ME's loading the succulent crustacean into just about everything, with a menu filled with lobster grilled cheese, lobster & waffles, Lobsticles (fried tails!), lobster ice cream, and, of course, lobster shooters, who're constantly surrounded by spent shells.
Todd English's brings you the deliciousness of English pub fare without having to leave Vegas. Be sure to check out the carving station too!
Located in close proximity to the LINQ, Flour and Barley is serving up brick oven-fired pizza. The pizzas are hot and fresh, with wood-fired crusts, and are complimented well with an impressive wine list, and more than 150 beers, including a deep selection of craft brews from around the country.
At this longtime locals' hangout, the Jamaican influence is felt not only in the food but also with the cocktails, in offerings like the New Amsterdam vodka combined with jerk-spiced bloody mary mix.
At this French-inspired steakhouse in The Palazzo you will find corn-fed Iowa steaks aged for 28 days, one of the largest selections of cheeses on this side of the planet (we're talking more than 60 farmhouse artisanal cheeses), and a full iced seafood bar that's as fresh as it gets. Not to mention an emphasis on high-quality service and the best patio seating you’ll find anywhere on the Strip.
Deep within the air-conditioned annals of the Venetian Casino, this polished gastropub boasts a list of over 200 types of craft beers, as well as a robust offering of American and Canadian whiskeys (not to mention single malt scotch, with Japanese selections to boot). It’s probably where Ron Swanson would hangout if dragged to Sin City: the menu here is fairly meat-forward, with regulars raving about poutine with duck confit (pro tip: opt to add the fried egg) and heavy-hitters like the porter-braised short rib with carrot mousseline and IPA-battered onion rings.
Hash House gained its fame from its massive breakfasts: dishes like a house scramble with chuck roast, chipotle charred tomato, and fresh asparagus & mozzarella. They've also got a cocktail menu with killer bloody mary options, plus your standard bottles and cans.
Not only is it located in the same building as the Sapphire strip club, but El Dorado serves Mexican food that is GMO free and organic whenever possible.
The Luxor's T&T is 8000sqft of aluminum-walled, skeleton-bedecked haute-sombrero, rocking a massive, 65x25ft mural of a lady bullfighter, and serving classic Ameri-mex (nachos, tamales, enchiladas), plus nuevo tacos filled with the likes of lobster & more.
Tucked into the Hard Rock and boasting late-night hours, Mr. Lucky's offers "mouthwatering diner cuisine for the sophisticated palate"... because you'll definitely feel sophisticated housing a plate of fried mac and cheese bites at 2a.
Anchored by a center column studded with TVs blaring Latin music vids before exploding at the top like a sunburst over the casino floor, Fusion serves up serious fresh-fruit cocktails like the Peruvian-ish Barsol Pisco Quebranta (with fresh lime juice, ro
This Hubert Keller resto is home of the famous $5,000 burger... and really, does anything else matter?
90% of the dishes are wood-roasted in one of two oversize hearth ovens at this appropriately named rustic eatery on The Strip. Hearthstone also offers great shareable appetizers truffle popcorn, meat and cheese charcuterie; entree selections include poached Alaskan salmon and Wagyu short ribs.
