Dining Near The Vegas Strip | Here are a couple of my favorite new off-strip dining hot spots along with a very newly opened restaurant. I’m including Uber ride-hailing estimates so you can budget time and money. You won’t find this kind of dining experience in a Las Vegas casino.

I recently visited the newest restaurant in the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian, Mercato della Pescheria. The restaurant is located in St. Mark’s square replacing upscale Italian restaurant Postrio. The layout of Mercato della Pescheria is similar to Postrio with an indoor and “outdoor” table configuration. The outdoor seats are inside the casino under the painted sky ceiling.
When I moved to Las Vegas, I didn’t know much about the Jewish community. I didn’t expect to find Dr. Brown’s soda very often since it’s from the east coast. The day I explored the SUNCOAST HOTEL and CASINO was one of the happiest since I moved to Las Vegas. Low and behold the deli/restaurant had a few different Dr. Brown’s sodas in their refrigerator.
Hotel bar. The two words evoke the image of a darkly lit bar with disheveled businesspeople shaking the ice in their glasses as they dream of being home. But as hotel chains rapidly work to give properties and brands their own character while luring customers back from boutiques, that spirit is moving to the bar. Among the efforts, a feature that literally goes to the top: bee cultivation on the hotel roof.
On this awful day that picks me up came in the form of a hug from a delicious bowl of Matzo Ball soup at Siegel’s 1941 inside El Cortez. This was the first time I visited the new restaurant so I was hoping that the soup was the hug I wanted. Thankfully, it was as good, if not better, than any Matzo Ball soup I’ve had in Las Vegas
These 10 U.S. airport bars offer travelers a great selection of premium wines, craft beers and signature cocktails.
Momofuku Las Vegas opened with very little fanfare this week at Cosmopolitan. A friend was walking past it on his way to pay final respects to Blue Ribbon Sushi and saw that it was open. He immediately made a reservation for the next day.
Lucky Dragon is a heavily Asian themed casino and hotel. The dining options reflect that more than any another segment of the casino and hotel. All four restaurants inside the casino serve exclusively Asian cuisine. This is unique but speaks loud and clear as to who their desired customer is.
In the olden days of airport dining, you were lucky if you could eat a fast-food burger or drink a low-end cocktail. But airports understand that travelers are demanding better food and drink options, and they have stepped up their efforts to deliver. World-class high-end dining and celebrity chefs are flocking to airports to feed masses with more high-end food choices. Below are seven great airport restaurants to try during your travels.
I wasn’t feeling that flush, so I slid my mouse over to Robuchon’s other Vegas outpost – L’Atelier De Joël Robuchon. It’s a bit less formal and has 1 Michelin Star. It also features an open kitchen, so you can watch the culinary creations as they come together. I opted for seats at the bar, so my colleague and I could take in the action, and maybe take a few notes to improve our own kitchen skills.
