Located in West Sahara, Hash House A Go Go is a hip yet old school Midwestern-style farm food restaurant and cocktail bar. Hash House A Go Go has been serving mouthwatering farm-to-table down-home cooking in Las Vegas for over twenty years, and the New York Post said that it was “the coolest place they ate in Las Vegas.” The most popular dish at Hash House A Go Go Andy’s World Famous Sage is fried chicken and waffles. They also have spectacular stuffed burgers, meatloaf, and some of the largest, fluffiest pancakes I’ve ever seen. I had a giant-plate-sized pancake with fresh banana and brown sugar.

Maggiano’s Little Italy is a gaudy and kitschy Italian American restaurant that perfectly fits the Strip’s garish and flamboyant allure. Maggiano’s is a family favorite around the US. The Vegas location – right on the Strip across from the Wynn Resort – has floor-to-ceiling windows that offer panoramic views of the surrounding resorts. Maggiano’s has a great family-style menu for four or more people as well as a conventional a la carte menu full of antipasti, hot appetizers, pasta, and entrees, all made with the Maggiano family’s classic Italian American recipes. I love their lasagna with crumbled meatballs, sausage, ricotta, and marinara sauce.

Lakeside is a fine-dining Hawaiian seafood restaurant located in the Wynn Hotel with a beautiful, covered balcony overlooking Wynn’s Lake of Dreams. Acclaimed Chef David Middleton prepares seafood, shellfish, and prime steaks with Hawaiian flavors that have won Lakeside four stars from Forbes Travel Guide. I love their tropical take on corn chowder, prepared with coconut milk, smoked oyster mushroom, crispy hominy, and lime. For the main course, I recommend one of their fish dishes using fish imported directly from Hawaii. I loved the Wild Hawaiian Mahi Mahi topped with tomato olive relish and served with roasted eggplant and Korean squash.

Modeled after Las Vegas steakhouses from the 60s and 70s, Barry’s Downtown Prime’s dining space is designed with a vintage glamour décor replete with velvet upholstered booths and luxurious leather chairs, brass fixtures, and gaudy antique mirrors. They offer a classic steakhouse menu with an extensive cocktail and wine list as well as a full vegan menu. I recommend starting with the steak tip au Poivre with filet mignon tips, parmesan risotto, seasonal mushrooms, and creamy peppercorn sauce. I love their Colorado Lamb Chops crusted with parmesan and pine nuts and served with a rosemary red wine sauce.

The Bacchanal Buffet sits inside the ever-so-popular Caesar’s Palace on the Las Vegas strip, right across from the Bellagio. This restaurant is very casual and offers over a dozen different cuisines for you to enjoy, all laid out in an organized buffet. They even have a large selection of vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free choices for those with allergies and restrictions. Along with their 250+ daily buffet choices, the restaurant also offers traditional brunch Friday through Sunday from 9 AM to 1 PM and crab brunch from 1 PM to 3 PM. It’s one of the best restaurants in Las Vegas if you can’t decide on one cuisine. I highly recommend trying the seafood boil, as the seasonings are delicious with the fresh seafood.
