Despite what you might think, the Las Vegas Strip is not just for having the wildest night of your life. Sure, you’ve got a bunch of fantastic all-night casinos, thumping clubs and top-notch hotels, and you can spend all night running round the streets and taking photos with statues like mad men. But do not, we repeat do not, sleep on the food. 

That’s right. The Strip is actually home to some of the best restaurants around, from hearty Italians to Michelin-starred tasting menus and more. We’re not just talking about the many buffets (though we love those too). We’re talking about the freshest seafood, excellently presented meats and French culinary delights. But to avoid the tourist traps and find the really good stuff, you’ll need a helping hand. Here are the best restaurants in Vegas right now.

Fine dining is alive and very well inside the “mansion,” a fitting nickname for Chef of the (last) Century’s opulent Michelin three-star restaurant just off the MGM Grand casino floor. The honorific was awarded by prestigious French culinary guide Gault & Millau in 1989, and as you’d expect, a meal inside Joël Robuchon’s jewel-hued rooms is a once-in-a-lifetime event, so opt for the full experience. The 16-course parade of transcendent French cuisine takes more than three hours, makes ample use of caviar, black truffles and foie gras and won’t leave you contemplating a slice of pizza on the way home. There simply is no dinner more decadent on the Las Vegas Strip.

Don’t call it a steakhouse. According to superstar chef José Andrés, this Philippe Starck–designed restaurant at SLS is a “meathouse,” dedicated to celebrating the bounty of the earth, be it in the form of A5 Kobe straight from Japan, Finnish caviar, or even leeks with charred chipotle sauce. The ingredients—sourced so carefully the R&D team tried more than 500 cuts of meat before opening—are the stars here, but the chefs still have fun showing them off. That means foie gras is offered wrapped in cotton candy and dishes like the classic steak tartare are mixed tableside with plenty of panache. Don’t skip the suckling pig, imported from Spain and served by the quarter. You’ve never had such succulent swine.

Created by legendary toque Guy Savoy with Julien Asseo presiding over the kitchen, this is among the most expensive dining rooms in Vegas. However, it’s worth every penny, providing a level of culinary sophistication rarely glimpsed here. Highlights include the signature artichoke and black truffle soup served with toasted mushroom brioche, and the black truffle menu, which shows a liberal hand with the highly prized ’shrooms. If you have the cash, try the 13-course innovation-inspiration menu or pony up for the Krug chef’s table, where you’ll indulge in a 10-course feast inside the kitchen.

This workshop-style dining room, right next door to Robuchon’s signature restaurant, features a few tables and a counter at which you can sit and watch some of the world’s best dishes (they’re simpler and cheaper than at the other place) being prepared. Push the boat out and go for the seasonal discovery tasting menu; it’s worth the $195 price tag.

When Milos opened in the Cosmopolitan in 2010, it brought something to the Strip we hadn’t even realized was missing: Greek seaside fare straight from the Mediterranean and Aegean. That’s what you’ll find at Milos—meaty octopus with just the right char, Portuguese grilled sardines and freshly flown-in fish, cooked whole in a salt crust and finished with a drizzle of olive oil and perhaps a few capers. At $25.15, the three-course lunch special is a steal. Order the “real Greek yogurt” for dessert, which will ruin you for the grocery store stuff.

Wolfgang Puck, the man responsible for revolutionizing Las Vegas visitors’ eating expectations (with Spago), opened this classic steakhouse in the Palazzo in 2008. Since then, Cut has demonstrated that it’s a slice above many other steak joints. For one thing, that’s practically all you find here: meat, meat and more glorious meat. Go for the 100 percent pure Japanese Wagyu if you can, but rest assured there are no bad choices here, only splendid steaks grilled over wood and charcoal and finished under a 1,200-degree broiler. Complete your meal with one of the dozen side-dish options, a topper or sauces like wasabi-yuzu kosho butter or brightly herbal chimichurri.

This stylish new spot from Michael Mina has everything you want in a French brasserie: modern takes on classic dishes, ample wines by the glass and a champagne cart, so you can browse the by-the-flute options before choosing your bubbly. On weekend mornings Bardot packs ’em in with its popular brunch, where you can order a variety of croissant Benedicts, brioche French toast with vanilla mascarpone and almond brittle, or the Hunter’s Waffle with duck confit and poached eggs. Accompany your meal with bottomless rosé. This is Vegas after all.
