Las Vegas restaurants have evolved from the steakhouses, red sauce joints, and buffets that once powered the city’s vacationers (though we admit some of the early icons are worth the trip down Memory Lane). As Vegas grew up, so did the culinary scene. It now has more celebrity chefs than you can shake a stick at; the most master sommeliers of any city in the U.S.; and the best access to the rarest ingredients in the world. But growing up has also meant looking in its own backyard for talent. The city’s best restaurants aren’t just importing rare snow beef from Hokkaido, they’re also trucking in plump tomatoes from Pahrump, Nevada. Pick a type of cuisine—odds are, you’ll find it within walking distance. Our list of Las Vegas’s best restaurants supports this great mix: high, low, old, new, innovative, and iconic. Come hungry.
