It feels inevitable that Paris Las Vegas would install a fine French dining room in the base of its mock Eiffel Tower overlooking the Bellagio fountains, and it would probably do brisk business without much effort. However, chef Jean Joho ensures the kitchen doesn’t let the setting steal the show. Instead, guests are plied with decadent dishes like double lobster bisque with butter poached lobster providing the second punch and truffled chicken with hand-rolled pasta in comte cream sauce. Go ahead and indulge.

High atop the Delano, Alain Ducasse has reincarnated Mix as Rivea, a glamorous restaurant serving food inspired by the French and Italian riviera with a view that’s all Vegas. With previous locations in London and Saint-Tropez, Ducasse has honed the Rivea concept, namely small plates made for sharing like paccheri pasta with ox-cheek, marinated sea bass with citrus and bright salads punctuated by seafood. Whether you come for dinner or cocktails in the adjacent Skyfall Lounge, it’s worth the trip to the 64th floor to revel in the stunning setting.

Tucked into the north-west corner of the valley, this neighborhood French bistro and wine shop is a well-kept local secret thanks to its lovely lakeside location, excellent cooking and adjoining bottle shop, where you can pick out a burgundy or chardonnay for well below the price you’d pay on the Strip. Reserve a table on the expansive patio, dig into dishes like wild mushroom risotto with chicken chicharrones or red-wine braised beef with white truffle grits and forget for a moment that this is Vegas.

What’s a classic creperie doing on this list? Spreading France’s revered cafe culture to the desert with delicious results. Opened by French-chef-turned-Vegas-local Maggie Reb, this homey spot serves savory and sweet crepes fine-tuned with imported ingredients like buckwheat flour and vanilla chestnut jam. Opt for a Polo (ham, blue cheese and fresh spinach) or an Alex (pear, salted caramel and cinnamon), and allow yourself to be transported to Paris.

People watching is one of the great joys of Paris, grabbing an outdoor table at some bistro or cafe and watching the citizens of the City of Light pass by in their innate chicness. The view from Mon Ami Gabi’s Strip-side patio—one of the few places you can dine practically atop Las Vegas Boulevard—is nothing like that, but it’s plenty entertaining in its own right. It’s thanks to that view, the bustling atmosphere and crowd-pleasing menu of French basics that Gabi’s digs are perpetually packed. Get down on some steak frites and relish the sublime ridiculousness of Paris à la Vegas.
