Restaurants: Putting it all on the table
Finding the right restaurant doesn’t have to be a game of Roulette.
1. Simon at Palms Place
This Las Vegas resto-lounge is for anyone fed up with conventional cuisine. Executive chef Kerry Simon does more than satisfy with a menu that pushes the boundaries of mainstream prime meats and sushi.
2. Michael Mina
Michael Mina’s accolades as a world-class restaurateur are immeasurable. His eponymous Las Vegas venue ventures into the sea to bring dishes like chilled shellfish, cured ocean trout and Siberian osetra caviar to the table.
3. Aria Resort & Casino City Center
Sage: Your life may not need spice, but your palate is pleading for it. Western fare with flair is Sage’s ultimate seduction. Foodies that are fascinated by contemporary American interpretations will delight in their experience at Sage.
Sirio: Only those who are serious about food should consider sitting down at Sirio Ristorante. While this Tuscan-infused spot bellows the European philosophy of simplicity, all dishes are uniquely dressed for the discerning palate.
Julian Serrano: It might take two to tango, but at Julian Serrano, it takes two to tapas. French and Spanish whispers can be heard between the lines of one of Las Vegas’s sexiest sharing menus. Named one of Esquire Magazine’s 2010 Best New Restaurants, Julian Serrano will have you reminiscing for days.
4. Rao’s Caesars Palace
With a history of remarkable reviews, the reservation book for Rao’s Restaurant in New York has already closed for 2011. If you can’t wait for a taste of acclaimed Neapolitan cuisine, you might want to try your luck in Las Vegas at the more recent Caesars Palace venture, where famed kitchen vixen Carla Pelligrino is currently the executive chef.
