The ever-changing restaurant landscape of Las Vegas can be hard to keep up with. Sin City is constantly adding new places to dine and the top chefs and mixologists are always whipping up new culinary creations. But not every new eatery is worthy of your time or, more importantly, your money. Here are my top-six restaurants that have recently opened their doors in town.
This refined Mexican restaurant focuses on seafood, bringing Latin flavors to your favorite dishes from under the sea. Faviola Trujillo, who also runs two Taco y Taco locations, teamed up with executive chef Robert Solano to create sophisticated meals not often found in Las Vegas’ Mexican eateries. Cheap nachos and soggy quesadillas have been replaced with mouth-watering appetizers like octopus with golden raisins and chimichurri, and grilled oysters with sautéed greens, jalapeño ginger aioli, chorizo and sweet chili glaze.
With a cold bar featuring multiple ceviche and seafood cocktails, and an entire section of the menu dedicated to shrimp, this is the go-to place for diners who like to mix their shellfish with their tequila. The 5,318-square-foot restaurant has its own exterior entrance into Boulevard Mall, patio dining, and a central bar with multiple TVs.
Location: 554 S Maryland Pkwy, Las Vegas.
It’s only been three months since Eggslut’s July opening, but the unique restaurant has already found its niche in Las Vegas. The menus is a “balance of comfort and innovation,” taking a fairly boring food and turning it into interesting dishes that can be eaten all day.
McDonald’s is no longer your only all-day breakfast sandwich option; Eggslut’s signature option is a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich, made with hardwood smoked bacon, an over-medium egg, cheddar cheese, and chipotle ketchup. It’s served in a warm brioche bun that you can bet hasn’t been sitting out all day.
Other dishes worth a try are the “gaucho sandwich,” served with seared wagyu tri-tip steak, chimichurri, red onions, and seasoned arugula, topped with an over-medium egg in a warm brioche bun; and the restaurant’s namesake – the Slut: a coddled egg on top of smooth potato purée, cooked in a glass jar topped with gray salt and chives.
Location: The Cosmopolitan, 3708 Las Vegas Blvd S., Las Vegas.
Are you on a dairy-free, gluten-free, or nut-free diet? Eatt is your jam. They have a huge menu of healthy dining options that accommodate all dietary restrictions. Started by chefs Yuri Szarzewski and Vincent Pellerin, a Michelin-rated duo from France, it’s a welcome addition to a city of steaks and burgers.
The menu is split into five sections: Entrees (Miso-Marinated Salmon and a freshly made Quiche Lorraine are among the favorites), Sides, Fruits, Pastries (made by an executive French pastry chef), and Beverages (a smoothie with orange, kiwi, strawberry, and pineapple makes a perfect addition to a light lunch).
Eatt is more of a lunch spot than anything, and not the ideal one to hit if you are starving, but for those out for light and guilt-free fare, this three-month old spot is worth a shot. Who knows? Maybe you’ll love it and be ten pounds lighter before you leave town.
Location: 7865 W Sahara Ave, Las Vegas.
Why choose between eating and shopping when you can do both? Beauty & Essex, the newest addition at The Cosmopolitan, is more than just a restaurant and lounge; it also doubles as a pawn shop where you can buy or sell anything from jewelry to vintage toys.
Don’t let the “pawn shop” moniker fool you, however, as this restaurant is still a classy location reminiscent of swanky 20s dining. Signature dishes include roasted bone marrow with rioja-braised shallot marmalade, grilled cheese smoked bacon and tomato soup dumplings, and elote-style scallops with charred corn salad, chipotle, lime, and cilantro.
To honor its pawn shop side, the eatery is decorated in gold chains and pearls, insuring you’ll feel the elegance of the joint as you dine. This August, Beauty & Essex joined the ranks of Las Vegas’ outrageous dining experiences with a $2,000 package that features a seven-course dinner for four, a strand of pearls, oysters, and a bottle of Dom Perignon.
Location: Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, 3708 Las Vegas Boulevard S., Las Vegas.
Guy Fieri is constantly dipping his toes into new and interesting restaurants. One thing you can always expect from the TV personality is calorie-heavy goodness full of spice and flavor. His newest endeavor, El Burro Borracho, is no exception. For his second restaurant in Las Vegas, Fieri chose to go south of the border with authentically prepared Mexican dishes and upscale touches.
“It’s stuff you’ll recognize by name on the menu [but] it’s stuff you’ll not recognize by flavor when you taste it,” Fieri told the Los Angeles Times.
Your evening should kick off with one of many imported beers and tequilas or a signature margarita, like the pineapple habanero (el Jimador Silver tequila, pineapple, and habanero pepper purée), while looking out over The Rio’s pool. Crispy mahi mahi juan tacos, flaming queso fundido, Acapulco gold salad, drunken fish tacos, and lava rock shrimp will satisfy until you try the house-made churros for dessert.
Location: Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino, 3700 W Flamingo Rd, Las Vegas.
There is no lack of Italian food in Las Vegas, but Bottiglia has brought a much-welcomed taste of Tuscany to Green Valley Ranch. The bright and rustic atmosphere is reflected in the fare with a menu full of antipastas, salads, fresh fish and the house speciality: pappardelle bolognese. If you’re looking to eat light – let’s face it, summer is far from over in the Nevada desert – try the baked gnocchi in a spicy San Marzano tomato sauce or shrimp puttanesca. These traditional dishes are paired with some inventive offerings, like a roasted beet salad with buffalo milk yogurt, blue cheese, and honey; but, at it’s core, this restaurant is a go-to for those looking for a classic Italian meal at a reasonable price.
What makes Bottiglia stand above similar restaurants is the wine list. The list includes options from Italy (obviously), Germany, France, Spain, Australia, Argentina, New Zealand, California, and more. If you already have dinner plans, try brunch! You can order some dinner items like chicken parm, but surround them with breakfast choices like prosciutto eggs benedict and cinnamon bread pudding with salted caramel.
Location: 2300 Paseo Verde Pkwy, Las Vegas.
