On the Strip and off, the best Las Vegas restaurants are inspiring food-loving tourists to make reservations—and mark their calendars. More than 60 restaurants in Las Vegas have just opened, been redesigned, or plan to open soon. Within a decade, Las Vegas has redefined the culinary and wine experience by offering the most comprehensive collection of celebrity chefs, world-class restaurants and Master Sommeliers (12) than any other destination in the world.
Bon Appétit magazine, a leading authority in the culinary world, cemented Las Vegas’ place among US dining capitals by declaring the destination as one of the nation’s top five restaurant cities. The publication has partnered with Las Vegas and the destination’s resorts to host an annual epicurean event called Vegas Uncork’d. The four-day event in the spring provides an intimate connection with legendary chefs, along with grand tastings of their delectable creations. The festival was also recently named the number 1 food festival in the country by readers of USA Today and will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2016.
For one week each year, more than 100 of Las Vegas’ fine dining establishments participate in the city’s annual Restaurant Week. Working to end hunger in southern Nevada, a portion of all Restaurant Week sales benefit Three Square Food Bank. Participating restaurants offer prix-fixe menus from three tiered price points. In addition to the special menus, many of the city’s resorts offer Restaurant Week diners a chance to extend their experience beyond world-class cuisine by coupling their stay with one-of-a-kind entertainment, spa and overnight packages.
Las Vegas continues to be recognised year after year for its quality restaurants and wine scene. For 2016 Las Vegas was recently named one of the Top 10 Wine Destinations by Wine Enthusiast Magazine. In 2015, Las Vegas AAA Five Diamond award-winning restaurants include Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace, Joël Robuchon at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, Twist at Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas and Picasso and Le Cirque at Bellagio. Representing the upper echelon of the hospitality industry, AAA Five Diamond Award winners make up less than one-half percent of nearly 31,000 AAA-approved properties throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. Additionally, Las Vegas is home to 25 AAA Four Diamond Award winners and the restaurants can be found throughout the Strip.
