1. db Brasserie 3355 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109

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).

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.
