Las Vegas is a great city for foodies, especially if you live on the Westcoast. It is only a 2 hour flight from Vancouver, making it an easy weekend trip. There is great variety in cuisines and price points. Many “famous chefs” have opened a location in Vegas. From 3 Michelin star places like Guy Savoy, to my favorite sushi in the world – Kabuto (used to be), Vegas is probably the city I have visited most often. Visit the Vegas strip for big name chefs, or take a trip to Chinatown, Spring Mountain Road, and you will be rewarded with a huge variety of Asian choices.
Here are some of the places I try to visit when I am in town and reviews of other places:
Scarpetta – I love the spaghetti and polenta.
Bazaar Meat – Steak tartare, suckling pig, and anything meat (plus the Robuchon style mash potatoes).
Milos – Amazing Prix Fixe lunch value and consistently good.
