I’ve never made it a secret that Lola likes her VIP treatment. One place that comes to mind for VIP’s is Vegas. As I mentioned, I’m hoping to finally experience the Vegas pool party scene this summer. Another VIP perk I love about Vegas is all the great restaurants located there. Casino property owners know that visitors to Las Vegas want the best of the best and that includes the best in fine dining. Over the last decade, Vegas has earned a solid reputation as having some of the best fine dining in the world. If you are heading out to Sin City sometime in the near future, check out our list of restaurants you must visit in Las Vegas.
Tournament of Kings
While not a restaurant, the Tournament of Kings is certainly the most unique dining experience that you will have in Las Vegas. While you eat a medieval style dinner consisting of roasted chicken, soup, and other fare, you are entertained by a medieval style jousting tournament. It is Las Vegas’ version of dinner theater and appropriate for the entire family.
If you are a fan of Food Network’s Emeril Lagrasse, then you have to make a stop at Delmonico Steakhouse in the Venetian. Emeril is the head chef at this properties and this place not only serves the best cuts of steak in town, but also has numerous dishes that you will not find at any other steakhouse. Each dish has Emeril’s special touch and the decor is straight out of the 1970’s. Groovy baby.
The only non-Strip restaurant on our list, Michael’s at the South Point Hotel and Casino is a trip back into Victorian times. The restaurant has a complete Victorian style and the staff provides black-tie service that includes tableside preparation of meals. South Point is located about 20 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, but is definitely worth the drive.
The Bellagio is known for having the best of everything in Las Vegas from gambling to entertainment, and even food. Picasso is not only the crown jewel of Bellagio restaurants, but it is also the standard that fine dining is measured by in Vegas. Amazingly, close to 85 percent of the original staff from when the restaurant opened 20 years ago still works at the property. Chef Julian Serrano has put together a magnificent French-Spanish menu in a property accented by classic pieces of artwork from Pablo Picasso.
Top of the World Restaurant
If you want a view of Las Vegas that you will not see anywhere else in the city, then a trip to the Top of the World Restaurant is a must. Located at the top of the Stratosphere, the restaurant rotates 360 degrees to give a ever-changing view of Sin City. To be honest, the food here is about average in comparison to most Vegas restaurants, but the views make up for what the food lacks.
Who couldn’t love all the foodie fun that Vegas has to offer?! I hope I will still fit into my swimsuit so I can enjoy the pool party scene too! 😉
