Curator’s statement

There are a million reasons why I love Las Vegas. The main one? Stepping off the plane at LAS is the start of 72-96 hours of indulging in Sin City’s incredible food and drink scene. This is firmly a non-definitive guide to eating and drinking in Las Vegas because let’s face it — there is no right or wrong way to do Las Vegas. The food scene is evolving so quickly that it’s impossible to try it all. These are just a few of the places I find myself revisiting over and over.

EAT

Giada: California chic meets Italian dining at Giada, celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis’ restaurant at The Cromwell. Be sure to make a reservation well in advance and try the lemon spaghetti.

Flour + Barley: I’ve been eating late night pizza from this beloved walk-up window on the Linq’s Promenade for as long as I can remember. A slice from Flour + Barley makes the perfect “fourth meal” after a long day on your feet.

Bang Bar/Momofuku: David Chang has two phenomenal restaurant concepts at The Cosmopolitan. For lunch, check out Bang Bar, which features succulent Korean spit-roasted pork, chicken or eggplant on grilled flatbreads or in rice bowls. Sit down at Momofuku and try the tamari old fashioned and the pork belly buns for dinner. You will not be disappointed.

Hash House A Go Go: Make sure you are very, VERY hungry when you go to Hash House A Go Go at the Linq, where comfort food is served in absolutely gigantic portions. Go early to avoid a long wait and get the sage chicken and waffles to split with a friend.

Edge Steakhouse: A block east of The Strip at The Westgate is undoubtedly one of the best steakhouses in Las Vegas. Edge dry ages their beef using pink Himalayan sea salt for 40 days in house. Are you hungry all of a sudden? Me too.

Dirt Dog: Couldn’t round out a “where to eat in Las Vegas” list without one more place for truly dirty late night food. Their over-the-top gourmet hotdogs and loaded fries are everything. Located at the Grand Bazaar Shops in front of Bally's.

Black Tap: I’ve honestly never had the “real” food at Black Tap at the Venetian because I only go for their very Instagrammable and very delicious CrazyShakes. The CakeShake with rainbow sprinkles, a vanilla frosted rim and funfetti cake slice is my personal favorite, but you really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. If you eat a real meal there, let me know how it is!

DRINK

Rhumbar Tropical Ultra Lounge: Rhumbar at The Mirage is my favorite spot for a cocktail thanks to its ultra-cool mid century vibes, tropical fish bowls and Strip views.

Ghost Donkey: Tucked away in Block 16 Urban Food Hall at Cosmopolitan is Ghost Donkey, an intimate but lively speakeasy-style tequila and mezcal cocktail bar. I am obsessed with the smoked corn and coconut Manhattan.

Skyfall Lounge: Enjoy spectacular and sweeping views of Las Vegas while you enjoy a cocktail at Skyfall Lounge on the 64th floor of The Delano. Be sure to pre-book online.

Petrossian Bar: Feeling fancy? Enjoy caviar, champagne and cocktails or full English tea with a live pianist at the Petrossian Bar off the lobby of The Bellagio.

Vanderpump Cocktail Garden: Love her or hate her, Lisa Vanderpump has created an absolutely gorgeous cocktail bar at Caesar’s Palace. Huge chandeliers and lavish floral arrangements and greenery make Vanderpump Cocktail Garden one of the most beautiful bars on The Strip.

Beer Park: If you’re like me and you’re in town when your favorite team is playing, head to Beer Park to watch the game and have a cold one. Bonus - prime views of the water show at the Bellagio Fountain.

Skybar: Floor to ceiling windows at Skybar at the Waldorf Astoria dazzle with incredible views of Las Vegas. You’ll pay a premium for cocktails but it’s worth it, I promise.

ABC Stores: If you have been to Las Vegas before, you are probably LOL-ing at this. But for real, pop into any ABC store, grab yourself a $6 cocktail in a can and enjoy a stroll down The Strip. Open containers are a time-honored tradition in Vegas. Cheers!
