Top 5 Best Places to Eat in Las Vegas
One of the best ways to discover Las Vegas is through its delectable cuisine. Even though New York City typically takes the limelight for best of the US’s culinary offerings, some of America’s most stylish restaurants have their second outposts in Las Vegas. Eating and drinking here is just as extravagant as the other glamorous activities, with a host of decadent bars, restaurants and nightclubs serving a range of globally inspired dishes.
Part nightclub, part cocktail bar, part restaurant, Asian bistro Tao is the ultimate Las Vegas experience. Impressive Buddha statues and intimate candlelit booths compliment the moody hues throughout the venue. Located in The Venetian, the Pan-Asian menu fuses culinary inspiration from China, Japan and Thailand. There’s sushi, dim sum, seafood and small plates to enjoy before the opportunity to sip on an elaborate cocktail in style. The venue even has its own beach, hosting pool parties through the spring and summer seasons, with guests enjoying top DJ talents whilst relaxing on luxurious cabanas.
If you want a decadent take on European ambience, head to the Paris restaurant in Caesar’s Palace®, the definition of dining with a view. Modelled on the Eiffel Tower and sitting 100 feet above ground, the floor-to-ceiling windows perfectly frame the nearby fountain displays. The beautifully presented dishes are in true Las Vegas style, elaborate and unexpected. From the French BLT Tower to Lobster Eggs Benedict, this is French sophistication partnered with American extravagance at its finest.
