7 Vegas Restaurants for Foodies

Where to eat when you’re on a Vegas trip — from world-class restaurants to fast food.


Some of the best-known restaurateurs open locations in Vegas — and why not? From bachelor and bachelorette parties to conferences, plenty of people make their way to this glittering oasis. They’ve got to eat, too, right?

Herminia and Brandon are old pros at Vegas (despite their young age). Here are their seven favorite spots to grab a bite in one of their best-loved cities, from fancy-schmancy to fast food.

“We have a nice crop of restaurants we rotate between, but we always try to go to at least one new restaurant each trip,” Herminia told me. “But here are a list of our faves and why.”

Great sushi and more in a lush garden setting at Mizumi, located at the Wynn hotel in Vegas

1. Mizumi at Wynn

It’s a gorgeous Japanese restaurant offering a few different cuisine options and a beautiful view of the Wynn’s lake. The black truffle teriyaki steak is one of our faves.


Mediterranean cuisine from the famous chef Todd English + the best views of the Bellagio fountain show make Olives a hot spot on the Strip

2. Todd English’s Olives at Bellagio

Come here for lunch and request a table on the terrace. You’ll get the best view of the fountain show, every 30 minutes.


Famed French Laundry chef Thomas Keller serves up Parisian-styled sweets and baked goods at Bouchon in the Venetian hotel

3. Bouchon at the Venetian

Our favorite brunch place on the Strip. The hot dishes are amazing, and the baked goods are so scrumptious. Brandon’s favorite dish is the corned beef hash, while I love the chicken and waffles.


Vintage Hollywood glam at the Barrymore — check out the movie reel-lined ceiling!

4. The Barrymore

This one is a little off the Strip but really close to the Wynn. It’s a great American-style restaurant with an old Hollywood vibe.


Holsteins Shakes and Buns dishes up gourmet burgers and boozy milkshakes

5. Holsteins at the Cosmopolitan

Delicious burgers and boozy milkshakes. Need we say more?


In-N-Out Burger is famous for its secret menu — here are some burgers and fries “animal style”

6. In-N-Out Burger

Off the Strip, but so good. There’s one near the airport, so that’s usually our first meal after we pick up the rental car.


Jean Phillipe Patiisserie has two Vegas locations — the Bellagio and Aria — and claims to have the world’s largest chocolate fountain

7. Jean Philippe Patisserie at Bellagio and Aria

Such a great little bakery. The very best crême brulée and other desserts are perfect for the sweet tooth. They also have great savory sandwiches for a quick bite to eat after a tiresome craps game.
