Internationally acclaimed chef Daniel Boulud is the mastermind behind this sleek, luxurious French eatery tucked away inside the Venetian. He's serving up modern takes on French eats, with classics like Pâté de Campagne bourguignon and Parisian steak tartare, but he's also shaking things up with American takes like California white sea bass and the Frenchie Burger (an angus beef patty with morbier cheese, confit pork belly and arugula on a black pepper bun).
This burger joint is poolside by the Palms, and while they might be known for their casual lunches/dinners/late-night snacks of delicious burger options, they're also rocking homemade custard shakes that come in chocolate, vanilla, or espresso.
An alum of other Strip spots like Bouchon and Alex, Chef Michael LaPlaca brings his coastal Italian cuisine to the Mirage Resort & Casino with romantic Portofino, where he uses ingredients imported from Italy to create modern takes on traditional dishes, such as crab cake arancini and meatballs topped with cheese-stuffed squash blossoms. The Tuscan-influenced restaurant hand-crafts its pasta, too, which you can try in plates like pork-cheek ravioli and ripatelli with wild-boar bolognese. LaPlaca even keeps his gluten-free customers in mind with a separate menu of pasta made from arborio rice flour.
Keep it casual at this eatery in front of the Monte Carlo, where they're serving up down-home, Southern-inspired bites like chicken fried steak, cheddar cheese grits, and chicken pot pie.
Located on the third floor rooftop of the Downtown Grand, this outdoor, tent-covered communal dining/entertainment area boasts a pool, blackjack games, live entertainment, and bites perfect for Summer, like fried chicken and burgers.
Chef Matthias Merges brings Yusho to the Monte Carlo, where you can score Japanese bites inspired by street food, like steamed buns, various types of noodles, and assorted kimchi.
This cocktail lounge on the LINQ has a swanky 2,700sqt space with plush booths, outdoor seating, hand-crafted cocktails, and even live piano music.
This Downtown Bier Garten with a penchant for German spelling slings serious craft brews and German eats, like a pretzel they say serves four, but who are you kidding.
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.
This Brazilian-influenced coffeeshop is renowned for the quality of their coffee, sourced from around the globe and roasted locally, and for the unique latte art that graces the top of every espresso drink. The mini-chain has several locations around Vegas, but each one is devoted to serving the best espresso possible. With warm, coffee-inspired tones, comfy couches, and free wifi, this is a cozy place that encourages patrons to linger, make friends with other locals, and learn more about the coffeemaking process. The cafes are also active in the community, regularly hosting live music, poetry readings, and other events.
