After a fabulous fall break spent in the one and only Las Vegas, I’ve put together a weekend in vegas restaurant guide for the two most important meals of the day, brunch and dinner. All these spots are perfect for next year’s Vegas trip or any occasion of celebration taking place in this Disneyland for adults.
Cipriani’s Las Vegas, located in the Wynn Las Vegas and Encore Resort, is known for its delicious Italian menu. Large portrait photographs spice up the glossy wooden chestnut-colored walls giving the restaurant a sophisticated ambiance. The restaurant is surrounded by high-end retail stores making it the perfect place for a one-stop dine and shop spot. The comfortable leather chairs at the bar were the perfect place to enjoy a couple of dirty martinis while waiting for our meal. During my visit, I ordered the tuna tar tar with a tonnato sauce and the risotto with selected mixed mushrooms. Both dishes blew me away. Needless to say, next time I’m in Las Vegas I’ll be back.
Sadelle’s, Located in the Bellagio Hotel Last Vegas, has the reputation of the best brunch in sin city. Famous for their New York-style signature brunch dishes, it’s the perfect spot for a spill the tea brunch catch up session during your vegas visit. I highly recommend the matzo ball soup, eggs benedict, and an espresso martini.
Tao Las Vegas, Located in the Venitian Resort Hotel, is known for its experiential vibe dining and delicious Asian fusion menu. The Pacific Rim style ambiance is incredible setting the stage for an even more amazing meal. The entire menu is to die for but a few of my favorites are the miso-glazed Chilean sea bass with wok vegetables, the crispy spicy tuna roll with avocado and soy paper, the roasted shishito peppers with yuzu, the bamboo steamed vegetable dumplings with crunchy cucumbers and for dessert the giant fortune cookie. Tao also has a poppin’ upstairs night club which is free entry if you eat at the restaurant!
Beauty and Essex, located in the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas, is a glamours mix of New York and Las Vegas. A visit to this sassy restaurant, hidden behind a secret door in a vintage jewelry shop is a perfect way to start a night out in Las Vegas. This hot spot of the strip offers an array of delicious choices including Medeteranina, Italian and Asian and French-style dishes. I highly recommend the spaghettini and the seared scallops. Everything on the menu is amazing, you can’t go wrong.
