When Guy Savoy opened his namesake restaurant at Caesars Palace in 2006, he joked about being “imported” to America and laughed about how his Las Vegas restaurant had one thing none of his famed Parisian ones did—a view of the Eiffel Tower. Sure, it’s a twinkling replica, but nice in its own right. Restaurant Guy Savoy offers both a tasting menu and à la carte options. The “Colors of Caviar,” artichoke and black truffle soup and seared foie gras are legendary dishes not to be missed. The restaurant also has its own valet entrance, so you won’t have to slog through the casino to get there.
Las Vegas has become a culinary destination, but it wasn’t always that way. Not long ago, buffets and burger joints made up a majority of resort restaurants but that’s certainly not the case anymore. Buffets have been replaced with more sophisticated food halls and those cheap shrimp cocktails have morphed into elegant seafood towers.
Even the chefs who once worked in the restaurants on The Strip have branched out and opened remarkable restaurants—without the inflated prices—in neighborhoods all across the valley. You'll find chefs hailing from Michelin-starred establishments and stunning brasseries, plus some plant-based surprises, all worth discovering. Here’s a look at some of the best restaurants in Las Vegas right now.
