Las Vegas, NV 89109
(702) 946-4663

Seven years ago, Las Vegas got its first taste of Gordon Ramsay’s favorite dishes when he opened Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas, and the lines never stopped forming. Diners first walk through a replica of the Chunnel to enter the very British restaurant, replete with a Union Jack flag painted on the ceiling. Request the chef’s table for a view of dinner being made in the open kitchen, then go for the trifecta of Ramsay specialties: a Scotch egg, roasted beef Wellington, and sticky toffee pudding. The two-story restaurant even features seafood platters, American wagyu beef, and caviar for a decadent, and memorable, meal. To cap off the evening, order the Devil’s Barrel cocktail, a smoke infused drink presented table side. It’s made with raspberry-infused Jack Daniel’s, East Indian sherry, mint verbena syrup, and a hickory finish.

Television personality Giada De Laurentiis’s very first restaurant sits on the second floor of The Cromwell, and it feels like a slice of her own home. Diners glide up an escalator to the hostess stand dotted with cookbooks and mementos, then walk by a showcase of antipastos, breads baking, and the bar and lounge decorated with movie posters from her grandfather, Academy Award-nominated Dino De Laurentiis. The airy dining room again seems like Giada’s own, with natural lighting through retractable windows, where diners should request to sit to see amazing views of the Strip. Italian dishes with a lighter California twist dominate the menu of lemon spaghetti, chicken cacciatore, rosemary focaccia, and vegetable Bolognese rigatoni. Drop by for brunch and enjoy spinach ricotta pizzettes, lobster hash, salmon Benedict, or strawberry polenta waffles, Or, order from the Book Club Tasting Menu during brunch (available Fridays to Sundays) to try dishes from her most popular cookbooks, and receive 20 percent off when you buy one of her books.

Celebrity chef and television personality Bobby Flay opened his first restaurant outside of New York City in 2004 when he brought the Southwestern flavors of Mesa Grill to Caesars Palace. That means 15 years of ancho chile-glazed salmon, New Mexican spice-rubbed pork tenderloin, and 16-spice chicken. Diners can never go wrong with tiger shrimp, roasted garlic corn tamales, or rough-cut tuna nachos to start. Behind the bar sits a collection of 100 percent blue agave tequilas meant for sipping or adding to your margarita. Weekends mean brunch with ranch-style eggs tostada and blue corn buttermilk waffles. Be sure to order the Mesa Burger — a ground chuck patty topped with double cheddar, smothered in sweet grilled Vidalia onions, topped with horseradish mustard, and served with a side of Southwestern fries — one of the best in the city.

5. BLT Steak

3645 S Las Vegas Blvd
Las Vegas, NV 89109
(702) 967-7258
Visit Website

Every meal at Bally’s BLT Steak starts with hot Gruyere-laced popovers, setting the stage for the steakhouse fare to come. A handsome dining room adorned in polished stainless steel and dark wood with hints of amber and tangerine greets you. With more than 300 Old World labels available, savor a glass of wine, or sip a classic cocktail — both of which go well with those popovers — before ordering crab cakes, grilled double-cut smoked bacon, or a seafood platter to start. And be sure to check the Blackboard Menu for specials. Dry-aged steaks span from New York strips and cowboy cuts of rib-eye to a porterhouse for two. But don’t ignore the lighter options like sautéed Dover sole or pan-seared Scottish salmon, before enjoying decadent peanut butter chocolate mousse for dessert. Head to BLT on Sundays when it converts into the legendary Sterling Brunch, a tradition for more than 30 years of never-ending glasses of G.H. Mumm Champagne and mimosas, plus endless Alaskan king crab legs, prime rib, truffle mashed potatoes, custom-made omelets, and banana bread pudding French toast. Make this reservation far in advance. 

6. NOBU Restaurant

NOBU Matsuhisa opened his first NOBU Hotel in Las Vegas nestled inside Caesars Palace, and with it comes his largest restaurant and first US location with Teppenyaki tables. The 11,200-square-foot dining area features a circular bar in the lounge, a sushi bar reserved for walk-in diners, and a massive private dining area. Feast on NOBU’s iconic dishes such as Miso Black Cod, Rock Shrimp Tempura with a spicy aioli, Yellowtail Jalapeño, or one of 42 sushi or sashimi selections — or go for the omakase menu to let the chef select their favorite dishes of the day. The Teppanyaki menu includes multi coursed pre-fixed menus and an array of NOBU inspired menu items. NOBU stocks a wide variety of sakes, including three rare ones from Japan’s Hokusetsu brewery on Sado Island, but the restaurant is also home for the largest selection of Japanese whisky in Las Vegas. Some of these whiskies are featured in an exclusive “Flight and Bites” menu only available at the main bar; ask a bartender about this value deal.

Steve Martorano doesn’t consider himself a chef, but more of a cook making his South Philly style of Italian fare at Paris Las Vegas. That means family recipes for rigatoni with Sunday pork gravy and Philly cheesesteaks. Order an eggplant stack, the gigantic meatball with gravy and ricotta cheese, or mozzarella cheese made in-house, and save room for a cocktail with a scoop of water ice, an iconic Philly dessert treat. The restaurant sits on the resort’s Le Boulevard shopping area, and the design is reminiscent of Martorano’s original location in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Stick around later into the night as the music and vibe transform to more of a party atmosphere.

Television personality and chef Guy Fieri became a household name with his Food Network show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. The University of Nevada grad has brought his outrageous dishes back to his college town at his namesake restaurant, Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar at The LINQ. The menu spanning breakfast to late night features trash can nachos with a Motley Que barbecue sauce and tuna poke won-tacos to start. Then, for a meal that’ll fill up your plate, choose from over-the-top dishes like the tatted-up turkey burger with poblano peppers and gouda cheese, the ringer burger with a massive fried onion ring on top, or a bacon mac ‘n cheese burger. Head here for frozen shots with eight liquor options including Fireball and Crown Apple, or enjoy one of 16 craft beers on tap. Enjoy it all on the patio, a prime space for people watching right outside Carnaval Court, Harrah’s open-air music venue and bar. Dining with friends?

Burger fans have their own restaurant serving 10 different versions of patties at Burger Brasserie at Paris Las Vegas. The restaurant features a sports bar setting with a huge 15-foot television and 20 more tuned into the hottest games of the moment — college and pro. Try the Shaft’s bleu burger with Nueske’s bacon, Shaft’s bleu cheese, and garlic aioli or the French onion with a Gruyere crust. Of course, if you feel like splurging, order their most famous burger: the 777 Burger. It’ll cost you a cool $777 but it’s piled high with Kobe beef, caramelized onion, pancetta, goat cheese, seared foie gras, arugula, Maine lobster, and 100-year-aged balsamic — and paired with a BLT salad and a bottle of Dom Perignon rosé champagne. Adult shakes include a salty-sweet peanut butter and chocolate one, as well as the Cap’n Crunch shake, which is a sinfully delicious blend of Cap’n Crunch and Captain Morgan. 

12. Old Homestead Steakhouse

A taste of New York City and Pat LaFrieda beef finds a home at Old Homestead inside Caesars Palace, the steakhouse from brothers Marc and Greg Sherry, whose family opened the original in the Meatpacking District in 1868. Slip into one of the burgundy leather booths and peruse the wine list that’s 15,000 bottles strong. Then on to appetizers: Start with bone marrow, seared foie gras, East and West Coast oysters, or go for the towering seafood platter featuring Maine lobster and king crab legs, among other seafood delights. The star of the menu is the wide variety of USDA prime dry-aged steaks — aged at least 30 days, by the way — ranging from bone-in filets and New York strips to lollipop rib-eyes and bone-in porterhouses for two. Old Homestead even features wagyu beef, Alaskan king crabs, Dover sole, and Colorado lamb chops. For a smaller appetite, order the OH burger, one of the best in the city, with foie gras butter, aged Tillamook cheddar, caramelized onions, and duck fat fries.

Southern fried Twinkies and a fried bologna sandwich alone make two great excuses to head to Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill at Harrah’s Las Vegas, and the nightly live music doesn’t hurt either. The country music star named the restaurant for his song “I Love This Bar,” then filled it with Southern fare and country music acts performing every night. Sometimes the star even makes an unannounced visit to drop a few songs on his fans. Deep South favorites include chicken fried steak lathered with country gravy; the Bronco Burger made with smoked brisket and topped with cheddar, bacon, tomato, lettuce, onion straws, and BBQ sauce; St. Louis ribs slathered in a sweet and tangy BBQ sauce; and jumbo beer-battered shrimp with a choice of two sides. Make sure to stop by the gift store for Toby Keith memorabilia.

French chef Guy Savoy’s only restaurant outside of Europe sits in the Augustus Tower at Caesars Palace. Some of the most divine dishes in Vegas are here: artichoke and black truffle soup, foie gras, and fondant au chocolat, to name a few. Every meal begins with a visit from the bread cart, a rolling wonder of warm, delicious breads to start your meal off right. Let the chefs take control when you order from the five-course Forbes menu with high-end wine pairings or the 14-course Prestige menu. You’ll feast your way through Michelin-starred favorites like Colors of Caviar, a parfait layered with divine caviar vinaigrette, cream of caviar, pureed French green beans with caviar, golden osetra, and a caviar sabayon, and the Salmon Iceberg: sushi grade salmon cold-seared on dry ice.

The famous Chinese restaurant frequented by celebrities has a home in Las Vegas at Caesars Palace. Ride the elevator up one floor to MR CHOW for a greeting of Champagne and a fascinating kinetic sculpture suspended overhead that changes colors. Request one of the seats on the terrace that overlooks the Garden of the Gods pool complex then prepare your taste buds for a trip through Beijing with favorites like chicken satay or squid ink rice noodles to start. Try the restaurant’s famous green prawns which get their hue from pureed spinach, and witness chefs hand-pulling the MR CHOW noodles right in the dining room. Ma Mignon, a riff on the classic filet mignon, has been on the menu since 1975 and features a crispy flour crust topped with peppercorns and an onion sauce. The Beijing duck is made for up to three people and comes as a three-course meal that’s carved table-side and is served with pancakes and garnishes. Complement your meal with something from the roving Champagne trolley.

The famous Chinese restaurant frequented by celebrities has a home in Las Vegas at Caesars Palace. Ride the elevator up one floor to MR CHOW for a greeting of Champagne and a fascinating kinetic sculpture suspended overhead that changes colors. Request one of the seats on the terrace that overlooks the Garden of the Gods pool complex then prepare your taste buds for a trip through Beijing with favorites like chicken satay or squid ink rice noodles to start. Try the restaurant’s famous green prawns which get their hue from pureed spinach, and witness chefs hand-pulling the MR CHOW noodles right in the dining room. Ma Mignon, a riff on the classic filet mignon, has been on the menu since 1975 and features a crispy flour crust topped with peppercorns and an onion sauce. The Beijing duck is made for up to three people and comes as a three-course meal that’s carved table-side and is served with pancakes and garnishes. Complement your meal with something from the roving Champagne trolley.
