Las Vegas' Best Restaurants: Indulge Your Food Fantasies

The best restaurants in Las Vegas showcase modern and traditional cuisines, from Japanese at Raku to classic French at Joel Robuchon. Vegas’ best restaurants are a treat for the food lover. Several are helmed by famous chefs, but you’ll also find hidden gems in humble establishments. Many of Vegas’ best eateries are French, but you’ll also find Asian, Italian, and Spanish–all a sign of Las Vegas’ evolving food scene, which has expanded to include a host of styles. Many of the best restaurants are on the Strip, but traveling just off the Strip to Downtown or Chinatown can turn up a host of great food experiences. A large number of renowned chefs have restaurants in Las Vegas, giving fans the chance to sample food from their favorite chefs. The atmosphere at many of these restaurants is upscale and professionally designed–a complement to the food. Off the Strip, you’ll often find great food in much less formal surroundings. A few local gems have developed followings that extend beyond Las Vegas. Plan ahead for any restaurants on your “must eat at” list since some of the hottest places can have a wait of a month or more. Check ahead for seasonal specialties or events so you don’t miss any one-of-a-kind experiences. Meals at these terrific Vegas restaurants are an experience most diners will remember for a long time.
