Las Vegas
1. Brezza
Resorts World

The buzz: Brezza is one of the most exciting things at the recently opened Resorts World. The restaurant offers a modern interpretation oxf classic Italian cuisine via inventive recipes by Nicole Brisson, who formerly ran the groundbreaking dry-aging program at Carnevino. After helping to launch Locale and the Vegas version of Eataly, she's finally in her own element with the freedom to stretch some creativity and showcase a fierce dedication to fresh, local ingredients. The dining room is bright and open, but the large outdoor patio steals the show, surrounded by the glow of the Strip and 65-year-old olive trees preserved from when the property was known as the Stardust.
The food: Brezza is best enjoyed as a complete multi-course experience, beginning with farm-focused antipasti and some of the best salads on the Strip before continuing with vibrant pastas and meat or seafood dishes. There's thoughtful consideration given to vegetarian recipes, and you can't go wrong with the ricotta corzella with heirloom tomato butter sauce and fried artichokes. Steaks are dry-aged locally in collaboration with Creekstone Farms and flame-cooked over white oak.
The cost: Appetizers, salads, and raw bar items are $17-27, daily seafood platter is $145, pastas $19-27, meat and seafood dishes $29-165, cocktails $16-17, and glasses of wine $14-32.

2. Delilah
Wynn Las Vegas

The buzz: Haven't you heard? We're in a new Roaring '20s. And while the best speakeasy bars in Las Vegas offer Prohibition-era style in small doses, old-school supper clubs are having a moment as well. Just walking into Delilah is an experience all by itself with the scene unfolding like a Martin Scorsese exposition shot. Guests enter through a bar and lounge that overlooks the main dining room, soaking in a spectacular example of art deco extravagance before being led downstairs. It's almost like dining on a movie set with a stage for live entertainment, but the food by Executive Chef Joshua Smith (formerly of Michael Mina's Bardot Brasserie) is what seals in the authenticity. Keep the phone in your pocket and respect the no camera/no social media policy.
The menu: Much like the venue itself, the menu is an exercise in indulgence with the best in prime steaks, seafood, and caviar on full display. Even the elevated spin on "Fish and Chips" (potato-crusted dover sole) is $72. The Wagyu Beef Wellington, sliced tableside for two, is the showcase piece, but you'll find small doses of joy in the carrot side dish, presented in a souffle so sweet, it could almost be dessert.
The cost: Appetizers, soups, and salads $19-48, shellfish $24-250, caviar service, entrees and steaks $28-170. Cocktails are $18 to $40. A small menu of late-night bites is $16-28.
How to order: Reservations are available online for regular diner service. Email for late-night bottle service reservations.

5. Rebellion Pizza

The buzz: It's hard not to feel the energy at Rebellion Pizza, where the owners (former employees at Pizza Rock) personally take orders, hand-toss dough, and work a brick oven that serves as the centerpiece of the dining room with a sit-down counter. Televisions show vintage WWF wrestling or Star Wars movies in black and white to maximize the quirk-factor.
The food: Customize your own pizza with a choice of nearly 20 toppings or go with one of the specialty pies, including the Spicy Honey Pepperoni, tomato-free Spinach and Artichoke, or a focaccia-style Sicilian. The dough uses a poolish starter, which produces a soft, chewy crust. Slices are available until 4 pm. There's a large selection of beer—all of it exclusively from Southern Nevada breweries—by can or tap.
The cost: Pizzas are $10-14 for 12-inch and $18-21 for 16-inch. Sicilian pizzas start at $25. Beer is $6-10.
How to order: Rebellion Pizza is holding off on delivery orders to keep pace with demand. Stop by or call 702-268-8268 to place a pickup order.
