Discover Great Food off the Strip at These 10 Las Vegas Restaurants

Some of Las Vegas' best restaurants are found off the Strip, from casual gastropubs to steakhouses. With the number of chefs and culinarily inclined people in town, it’s no wonder that some of the most talked-about eateries are springing up away from the tourist corridor on the Strip.

Marche Bacchus French Bistro & Wine Shop is one of the city’s original off-the-Strip finds, with serene lakeside dining, wonderful (and affordable) wines and great French food. The small restaurant is located in a shopping center located in Desert Shores, one of Las Vegas’ residential areas with man-made lakes, a feature that makes you feel like you’re not really in Las Vegas.

Steakhouses have been a Las Vegas dining staple since the city's early days, and off-Strip steakhouses remain solid choices for excellent meals. Echo & Rig is both a butcher shop and a restaurant, a combination that will warm the heart of any meat lover. The quality and service is every bit as good as anything found on the Strip.

Take a drive into Chinatown to discover a wealth of hidden gems, like Raku. This acclaimed Japanese restaurant attracts not only local chefs, but those visiting town as well. And everyone knows that the restaurants chefs like tend to be particularly awesome--Raku is no exception.

If you’ve decided it’s time to take a drive away from the Las Vegas Strip, keep scrolling to read our list, presented in no particular order, of Las Vegas' 10 best off-the-Strip finds.
