This spring, the culinary scene in Las Vegas continues to grow and evolve, especially in Downtown Las Vegas. Chefs around the city keep raising the bar on every type of cuisine, which is a wonderful thing for anyone who enjoys great restaurants.
One restaurant that’s earning acclaim this spring is the newest location of perennial Las Vegas favorite, Lotus of Siam. The new location has been open for a few months now, much to the relief of foodies everywhere. When Lotus of Siam’s original location closed due to flood damage, everyone anxiously waited for the second location to open. Now, their famous Northern Thai food is being served again.
In Downtown Las Vegas’ Art District, Esther’s Kitchen is drawing attention from diners and critics with its modern Italian food. With counter-style service for sandwiches and other casual fare at lunch, and a dinner menu full of perfectly executed Italian dishes, this is one of Las Vegas’ most talked-about restaurants this spring.
With the weather warm, but not too warm (yet), this is also one of the best times to take advantage of restaurants with patios. If spring had a signature meal, we all know it would be brunch, which really should be served on a patio. You’ll find a few restaurants on our list that combine those two elements, with great success.
