Las Vegas Restaurants
A world of culinary treasures await
Opened by famous French “Chef of the Century” Joël Robuchon, this namesake restaurant is the only restaurant in Vegas to have received a three-star rating from the Michelin guide. Joël Robuchon is one of two restaurants the French chef has in Las Vegas, and this one is the more formal and refined of the two. For more casual French fare, try his other restaurant, L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon. Both are located inside the MGM Grand.

Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips
Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips at The Linq Promenade brings the UK’s staple meal to Las Vegas and the world’s angriest celebrity chef does so in style. Red British telephone booths even serve as the restaurant’s entries and exits. While the restaurant is called Fish & Chips, the menu is surprisingly varied with an array of British delights. And, the addictive hand-cut chips are served slightly salted or seasoned with truffle and parmesan, chipotle, jalapeño, and chorizo, or cacciatore spice and fresh basil.

Battista’s Hole in the Wall
You have to be good if you want to make it in Vegas. So, you can imagine how good the food must be at Battista’s Hole in the Wall for the restaurant to stay open for more than 45 years in such a competitive culinary environment. Battista’s has been in the same spot since 1970, so it knows a thing or two about tradition, and that’s something it shares on every plate and in the restaurant’s charming décor, which consists largely of old-time Las Vegas memorabilia.

Twist is the brainchild of three-time Michelin Star chef, Pierre Gagnaire. Certainly, eating authentic French cuisine prepared by a master in a restaurant located on the twenty-third floor of the Mandarin Oriental makes for a truly special dining experience. Here, diners enjoy an exceptional view of the strip through its floor-to-ceiling windows. It’s one of the best sights in Vegas, and it’s accompanied by one of the best meals you’ll find in the city, too.

Chubby Cattle is one of the most popular of Las Vegas’ latest generation of eateries. This comfortable “conveyor belt” restaurant specializes in Chinese hot pots, which are heated right in front of diners. Guests can even choose what goes in their hot pots, making for a fully customized meal every time. Another reason for its popularity? It’s incredibly cheap!

Las Vegas Attractions
Glitz, glam, the mob, and more
The Hoover Dam is a marvel of American engineering. It stands 726.4 feet tall from its foundation to the roadway on the crest of the dam, and it took more than 5,000,000 barrels of concrete to erect. During the dam’s construction, more than 100 workers lost their lives. Touring the dam’s structure and the dam’s powerplant are humbling experiences that truly show what American ingenuity and drive are all about.
The Neon Museum
The Neon Museum is home to almost two acres worth of decommissioned and restored neon and electric signs, some of which were used nearly a century ago as Las Vegas was being born. As a matter of fact, the museum’s “Boneyard” has more than 150 aging signs that, when put together, represent a sizable portion of the city’s history with neon lights. Self-guided tours are available in which you’ll see restored signs from historic Vegas landmarks like the Lucky Cuss Motel, Binion’s Horseshoe, The Bow & Arrow Motel, The Silver Slipper, Society Cleaners, and The Normandie Motel, just to name a few.

The Mob Museum
You can’t visit Las Vegas without knowing about the city’s history with the mafia and law enforcement. After all, the mob practically built this town. The Mob Museum features several permanent and rotating exhibits, including a massive collection of real artifacts that showcase the history of the mafia in the U.S., and the efforts of law enforcement professionals to stop organized crime in the country.

Las Vegas Natural History Museum
The Las Vegas Natural History Museum is a non-profit, privately held museum of natural history located in Downtown Las Vegas’ Cultural Corridor. The museum opened in 1991 and since then, it has brought many rotating exhibits focusing on everything from marine life and dinosaurs to the treasures of the Pharaohs. There is also a strong exhibit on Nevada’s native animal and plant life and geology.

Las Vegas has changed quite a bit since it was first coined Sin City. But on Fremont Street, you can still get a taste of the city’s glitzy legacy, thanks to the insane variety of sideshow and street performers, an overhead light show, musical acts, and beckoning casinos. Barring a time machine, this is the best you’re going to get to witnessing Vegas as it was back in the day.

Golf in Las Vegas
With stunning weather year-round, few cities can offer the level of golfing that Las Vegas does, and there are a lot of excellent courses to choose from here.

This 18-hole Par 70 course has rolling greens, rushing streams, and pristine white sand bunkers. The Tom Fazio-designed Shadow Creek is another stellar course. Located at MGM Resorts International, this course consistently ranks in the top 20 golf courses worldwide.
