1. The 14 Hottest Restaurants in Las Vegas Right Now, April 2017
More often than not, tipsters, readers, friends and family of Eater have one question: Where should I eat right now? Restaurant obsessives want to know what's new, what's hot, which favorite chef just launched a sophomore effort. And while the Eater 38 is a crucial resource covering old standbys and neighborhood essentials across the city, it is not a chronicle of the "it" places of the moment.

Every couple of months, we'll be adding pertinent restaurants that were omitted, have newly become eligible (restaurants must be open at least six months) or have stepped up their game.

2. Where To Eat Brunch in Las Vegas — March 2017
If any city serves up a decadent brunch, it has to be Las Vegas. Whether you want a buffet with every indulgence, a chance to try Jamaican, Asian or French fare, or just the best eggs you can find, the weekend is the time to indulge in all that's wrong for your diet. Make it a buffet, order a la carte, maybe switch it up with some butlered dishes, then add some bottomless bloody Marys or endless mimosas. Stay on the Strip or head out to Summerlin, Henderson, Downtown or any of the other neighborhoods. Las Vegas has everything you can dream of when it comes to brunch.

3. Great Cheap Eats All Over Las Vegas
Yes, you can blow $55 on a flavorful steak, shell out $100 on a seafood tower or dole out $250 on a tasting menu. That's what Las Vegas is all about.

If none of those food options sound good to you, fortunately Las Vegas is home to many buffets where you can get your fill on all types of cuisine.

1. Where To Eat Prime Rib in Las Vegas
Long before the celebrity chefs took over the Strip, Las Vegas relied on cheap prime rib to drive diners into the restaurants and have enough money leftover to keep gambling. That era kicked off in 1942 with The Last Frontier, which served up "juicy rich prime ribs of Eastern steer beef, cooked in rock salt, served from the cart at your table with Idaho baked potato with chives, tossed salad, rolls and coffee" all for $1.50. Now, a whole rack of prime rib is a rarity in Las Vegas, and certainly not for $1.50. Instead, find restaurants that specialize in this cut of beef that is slowly roasted for hours, with the outside turning mahogany and the inside pink to the edges.

8. Where To Eat Chinese Food in Las Vegas
"Sometimes, at the height of our revelries, when our joy is at it's zenith, when all is most right with the world, the most unthinkable disasters descend upon us." Should A Christmas Story befall you on Christmas Day, or you just want to try something different for the holidays, try a Chinese restaurant.
