One part of Las Vegas that isn’t as well known as the casinos and entertainment aspects of the city is its food scene. Vegas has developed quite a reputation over the years for having some of the best restaurants in the United States with many receiving endorsements from food critics around the world.
Below we take a look at a few of the Las Vegas restaurants worth visiting on your next trip there..
Andre’s – Monte Carlo
Chef Andre Rochat has been a world famous chef in Las Vegas even before the town had a food scene. Due to the popularity of his downtown restaurant, the owners of the Monte Carlo asked him to open a second restaurant at their casino.
The intimate restaurants serves 50 and has Renaissance-inspired decor that mimics a French chateau. There are even private dining rooms where guest can even enjoy a fine cigar. Some of the dishes you can try year round at Andre’s are the Muscovy duck breast, tuna tartare, and foie gras.
Aqua – Bellagio
If you love seafood, you need to try out Aqua at the Bellagio. However, this isn’t your typical seafood. Chef Michael Mina has his fish flown in daily and the selection is among the best you will find anywhere in the world.
You can try out one of the many presentations of lobster and scallops, or may want a stack of ahi tuna. His fried potato cake that is surrounded by velvety port reduction is also another great choice. The atmosphere is considered high energy and the decor is breathtaking with expensive tile, canvas lamps, and honey-color wood.
Charlie Palmer Steak at the Four Seasons – Mandalay Bay
If you want a dining experience separate from the hustle and bustle of the casino crowd, then you want to try out Charlie Palmer Steak that is located in the Four Seasons at Mandalay Bay. Four Seasons is an exclusive “hotel within a hotel” at the property that is intentionally separate from the rest of the casino.
Charlie Palmer Steak is run by former Aureole Chef Charlie Trotter and has fantastic presentations of steak on the menu. You won’t find as many mind-blowing dishes on the menu as you would at Aureole, but the open atmosphere here highlighted by a fantastic wine list makes this a choice for many when staying in Vegas.
