June marks the summer of amazing food in Vegas. Restaurants are releasing their seasonal menus and folks are grubbing outdoors.
Participating restaurants will be offering special lunch, dinner, and wine menus all supporting Three Square Food Bank—a local nonprofit to end hunger in Southern Nevada. Learn more about Las Vegas Restaurant Week here.
Simple Salad at HEXX Kitchen + Bar (Paris)
The Simple Salad from HEXX isn't so simple because it is literally made with chocolate. It sounds odd, but the butter lettuce, snow white cheddar, chive and white balsamic vinaigrette, and candied cocoa nibs all together are quite refreshing. The salad is served as a part of HEXX's “Chocolate Spell” prix fixe menu, featuring chocolate in every course.
Caviar Classic at Twist by Pierre Gagnaire (Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas)
This dish is for the foodie with a taste for the finer things in life. The Caviar Classic boasts Ossetra caviar, chives, whipped cream, onion, eggs, mimosa, capers and blini. Michelin star-winning chef Pierre Gagnaire likes to cook up traditional French dishes “with a twist” of pretty daring juxtapositions of flavor. Twist is only open for dinner, so be sure to make a reservation.
Crab Ravioli at La Cave (Wynn Las Vegas)
The Crab Ravioli is just one of the items on La Cave's spring menu. This dish is topped with creamy ricotta, arugula, tomatoes and lemon butter for a traditional yet incredible flavor. La Cave is all about small plates, and is a self-proclaimed "wine & food hideaway" for those who prefer a quiet and intimate atmosphere.
Crab Cakes at Foundation Room (Mandalay Bay)
The Foundation Room is famous for being a nightlife hot spot with an exceptional view paired with phenomenal food. In particular, try the sweet jumbo lump crab cakes, just one item on the Asian, Indian and Mediterranean fusion menu it executes so well.
Hanabi Spicy Tuna at Sushi Roku (Caesars Palace)
The same Sushi Roku that is wildly popular in Los Angeles now has a location in Caesars Palace. The Hanabi Spicy Tuna is one item on their menu of modern Japanese cuisine that is a must-try, and includes spicy tuna on crispy rice. This place is perfect for tourists and locals alike.
