Stay cool all summer long with these Vegas treats

Las Vegas certainly can satisfy anyone's tastes - with incredible shows, nightlife, shopping, spas and more. And when it comes to taste buds, Las Vegas has an all-star roster of celebrity-chef run restaurants that can handle any appetite.

But what about capping off the perfect meal with a fabulous dessert? Have no fear, you'll find something for any craving your sweet tooth desires.

How about a shake that's part dessert and part ... cocktail? The Drunken Monkey at Holstein's inside The Cosmopolitan is worth going ape over. The Red Velvet Cake  and and Campfire S'mores shakes are also desserts with a little kick. Another adult-style dessert can be found at N9NE Steakhouse at the Palms, home to s’mores concocted with housemade strawberry,amaretto hazelnut-flavored or orange Grand Marnier marshmallows, and chocolate ganache-covered graham crackers. 

Sprinkles

For a more traditional cupcake-and-ice-cream experience, Sprinkles at The Linq has some innovative creations. Not to mention a cupcake ATM for those on the go, or who are having - pardon the pun, sugar withdrawals. Over at New York-New York, Shake Shack features some classic shakes and frozen custard treats.

Jean Philippe Patisserie

Stop by Jean Philippe Patisserie inside ARIA Resort at CityCenter and try any of their 45-flavor line of house-made gelatos or exquisite chocolates. 

For a once-in-a-lifetime experience, the Golden Opulence Sundae at Serendipity 3 outside Caesars Palace is as elegant as its name, from the baccarat crystal glass to the gold-plated spoon with which it is served. It's a foot-tall super sundae with five scoops of rich Tahitian vanilla ice cream, topped with 23K edible gold leaf, rare chocolates made from cocoa beans found only on the Venezuelan coast, and an array of exotic fruits. So exotic are the ingredients, you have to order it two days in advance. If that's out of your price range, don't fret - it's one of many over-the-top desserts that Serendipity 3 offers.

Whatever dessert flavor you fancy, you'll find it in Las Vegas!

 

5 Ways to Experience Las Vegas through Food and Drink

Expedia Viewfinder and LasVegas.com partnered up to highlight ways to get the full Sin City experience with a culinary vacation.

With Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Appétit food festival coming up on the horizon in April, we’re salivating just thinking of the culinary bang that will take place on The Strip. To keep our taste buds satisfied until the gourmet event, we wanted to get a taste of Las Vegas. Our team at Expedia Viewfinder joined forces with LasVegas.com to showcase the best ways to eat and drink your way through Sin City:

Ridiculous Extravagance

As a recipient of the Chef of the Century Award, Joël Robuchon is considered royalty in the world of French cuisine. His namesake restaurant, Joël Robuchon, in the MGM Grand is the first and only Vegas eatery to earn three Michelin stars. With just 12 tables, the upscale restaurant presents the height of exclusivity. While dining a la carte is possible, true culinary enthusiasts dive into the Prix Fixe Menu. This gourmet collection includes to-die-for courses that range from a lobster dish to a mascarpone masterpiece.

BottomlessDishes

Las Vegas is all about the buffet scene. We’re not talking cafeteria-style eateries with slops of mashed potatoes and gravy, but rather high-end restaurants with endless gourmet cuisine. The Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace is a feast for your eyes and stomach as it serves up more than 500 dishes. Make yourself comfortable in one of the three elegant dining rooms before taking a culinary tour of the global fare, from the made-to-order Japanese sushi to the Italian samplings. Pile up your plate, and don’t miss out on the exquisite red velvet pancakes and the divine oak-grilled lamb chops.

Enticing Entertainment

For those looking for a spin on the ordinary nightlife scene, enter Rose. Rabbit. Lie. at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, and experience the Modern Supper Club. This show seamlessly combines a restaurant and club ambience with live entertainment, where anything can happen and anything goes. Visitors are invited to come in and dine or grab a drink at the bar, and then watch as the magic naturally unfolds. Every night is different, so expect the unexpected at this alternative venue.

Extreme Cuisine

When it comes to dining in captivating Las Vegas, the menu should be as alluring as the city itself. Bazaar Meat by José Andrés at SLS Las Vegas will certainly do the trick when visitors are looking for extraordinary cuisine. Caviar flights, suckling pig crispy skin, and s'mores foie gras are just a few of the decadent treats offered. With menu categories like “More Than Meats the Eye” and “Meat from the Sea,” diners can prep their palates for protein overload at this unrivaled steakhouse.

Heightened Nightlife

Hakkasan Las Vegas is a five-story restaurant and night club where the choice is yours. The first floor boasts the main dining room, where guests can eat in an intimate space among strategically placed woodwork, while the second floor is reserved as the Private Dining Room. This secluded area overlooks the first floor and includes a private lounge with plush chairs that evoke a VIP-worthy ambience. Floors three through five are devoted to the club scene: Ling Ling Lounge, Ling Ling Club, Pavilion, Main Room, and Mezzanine. Each of these hot spots embody Hakkasan’s signature charm, but they’re all unique in that they create different vibes, with trendy cocktail lounges, energetic dance floors, lush garden bars, and more.

From decadent fare whipped up by celebrity chefs to five-story clubs and restaurants, Las Vegas pairs extraordinary food and drinks with out-of-this-world entertainment. When you’re hungry for a good time, plan a trip to Vegas and don’t forget your appetite.
