Las Vegas is firmly on the map as a culinary juggernaut with the most complete collection of world-class restaurants, making the destination one of the best cities in the world to dine out. We’ve selected several extraordinary places to eat at right now, with some indulgent dishes you can’t experience the same way anywhere else. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s eat.
1.Tailgate Social at Palace Station Hotel & Casino
What to Expect
A neighborhood sports bar combining great food, beer, fun and of course, sports. The more than 30 high-definition TVs and top-of-the-line sound systems give guests an incomparable viewing experience and make them feel like they’re at the game with the best seat in the house.
What to Eat
Starter: Appetizer Sampler Platter
When in a sports bar and grill, you expect quality and quantity when it comes to bar apps. Look no further than the sampler platter filled with three favorites. Tuck into a variety of chicken wings, the barbeque chicken quesadilla and warm pretzel bites with beer cheese fondue, truffle hot sauce (yes, please!) and grainy mustard.
Dinner: Holey Moley Big A** Stromboli
This is not your grandma’s ‘boli. Clocking in at FOUR FEET and stuffed with pepperoni, sausage, roasted peppers, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese with pizza sauce on the side for dipping – of course – make sure the squad is on hand to help polish this off.
Dessert: Deep Fried Oreos
Tailgate Social puts a playful spin on the traditional state fair treat. Birthday cake Oreos are dipped in batter and fried until GBD (golden, brown and delicious), then served with strawberry puree and white chocolate crème anglaise sauces. We won’t judge if you inhale them all by yourself.
2. The Mayfair Supper Club at BELLAGIO RESORT & CASINO
What to Expect
Inspired by top supper clubs around the world, you’ll get dinner and a show with food and entertainment you’d expect from the high-caliber Bellagio Resort & Casino.
What to Eat
Starter: Tuxedo Scallops
The shimmering shell presentation aside, this stunning dish features fresh, tender day scallops with huge slices of fresh truffle shingled between each scallop. This app is finished with black truffle cream (YUM), corn and Chanterelle mushrooms.
Entrée: Lobster Thermidor
Yes, this is a throwback of extreme proportions, but it IS a supper club, so you may as well embrace the part. The lobster is classically prepared Thermidor-style with cognac cream, elevated with buttered leeks and tomato, and topped with a bed of crispy string potatoes.
Dessert: The Cigar
This showstopper (pun intended) is an edible chocolate and hazelnut cigar that arrives hickory-smoked under a glass dome. Whimsical and oh, so good.
3. Bugsy & Meyer’s Steakhouse at Flamingo Las Vegas
What to Expect
Diners will be transported back to Flamingo Las Vegas’ vintage roots while enjoying modern steakhouse cuisine in one of four unique atmospheres, including The Count Room—an intimate speakeasy serving cocktails and small plates.
What to Eat
Starter: Half Dozen Oysters
A classic steak house staple, this offering features a variety of East and West Coast mollusks served with a champagne mignonette sauce.
Dinner: 20 oz. Prime Bone-in Rib Eye
You’re at a steak house, so it’s only fitting to get a big cut. From the B&M private reserve and dry-aged for 60 days in the in-house cooler, this cut is beautifully marbled and grilled to perfection. Don’t forget to pick from an array of enhancements – surf and turf anyone?
Dessert: Wise Guys
Don’t let the name fool you. There’s nothing shady about this complex treat that combines opposite textures and temperatures. From warm chocolate espresso fondant and praline lime success to the raspberry yogurt soufflé and the nougat semifreddo, it’s the best of all flavors.
4. RPM ITALIAN at THE FORUM SHOPS AT CAESARS PALACE
What To Expect
With its open kitchen, lounge area reminiscent of an Italian garden, and a menu of traditional favorites with a modern approach, you’ll feel like you’re exploring Italy’s beautiful Amalfi coast. The restaurant, co-owned by celebrity couple Giuliana and Bill Rancic, is the first Las Vegas outpost of the RPM culinary collection.
What To Eat
Starter: Prosciutto Service
The restaurant’s Prosciutto Service features a 600-day-aged Prosciutto di Parma, served alongside an antipasti of stuffed peppers and olives and homemade grisini—Italian for thin, crunchy breadsticks.
Dinner: Mama DePandi’s Pomodoro
You definitely have to try Mama DePandi’s Pomodoro, a plate of bucatini delicately tossed with delicious tomato sauce, parmesan and Genovese basil. Not only is this the best-selling dish at RPM’s additional locations, but the popular plate is also based on Giuliana’s mother’s original recipe!
If you can’t decide between something hot and something cold, why not get the best of both worlds? The Bomboloni—Italian brioche donuts with lemon curd and vanilla sugar—will pair beautifully with a plate of RPM’s housemade gelatos. You just have to decide which flavor: Dark Chocolate & Hot Fudge, Salted Caramel, or Toasted Sicilian Pistachio!
The night doesn’t have to end at dessert! You’re in the Entertainment Capital of the World, where dinner and a show are a perfect pairing. Check out all of the remarkable Las Vegas productions and make a night out of it!
