Whether the weekend calls for a lazy Sunday brunch, a 3 a.m. post-bar meal or a fancy dinner, you’ll find a wealth of options in Henderson. The Las Vegas suburb has long been home to many exciting dining options — so many in fact that it can be hard to choose. Fortunately, you can avoid coming down with a case of restaurant indecision by referring to the following list. From a coffee shop that brews a truly magical latte to a breakfast spot that really does offer something for everyone, here are five restaurants to try in Henderson this weekend.
Your late-night bite
Arguably one of the best things about Las Vegas is access to just about anything at any time of day or night. One such example is the 24-hour Whist Stove & Spirits, located in The District at Green Valley Ranch. The restaurant setting features chandeliers, Victorian furniture and otherworldly paintings along with a similarly creative menu. Try the Magnolia Le Rouge cocktail made with hibiscus- and rosemary-infused vodka along with an order of duck mac and cheese from the night owl menu.
Whist Stove & Spirits, 2235 Village Walk Drive; 702-307-2694
Your healthy lunch
A lot of restaurants promise fresh ingredients, but LYFE Kitchen actually has an on-site herb garden to prove it. Located in The District at Green Valley Ranch, this fast-casual cafe serves healthy salads, soups, sandwiches and bowls with a focus on protein and vegetables. Menu items include seared tuna tacos with creamy avocado, crispy chicken and brussels sprouts with butternut squash and vegetarian-friendly options like quinoa tabbouleh on crunchy vegetables.
LYFE Kitchen, 140 S. Green Valley Pkwy.; 702-558-0131
Your risotto craving
Located in the Black Mountain Marketplace, Il Chianti Italian serves made-to-order pasta, chicken and seafood. Chef Rudy Janeo believes in “cooking with love,” and nowhere is that better demonstrated than in the notoriously labor-intensive dish of risotto. Have yours with pancetta, asparagus and truffle oil or with lobster tail, salmon and scallops.
Il Chianti Italian, 72 W. Horizon Ridge Pkwy.; 702-566-1999
Your Butter Brew Latte
Muggles and wizards alike will find something enchanting at the Harry Potter-themed coffee shop Bad Owl Coffee. From Kyoto, a Japanese cold brew coffee, to the famous Butter Brew Latte made with butterscotch and cream, there’s plenty for both coffee and book lovers to savor. For a quick bite, try the peaches and cream waffle or a prosciutto sandwich with fig butter and arugula.
Bad Owl Coffee, 10575 S. Eastern Ave. #160; 702-483-3331
Your group breakfast that pleases everyone
Situated in an unassuming shopping plaza on the Horizon Ridge Parkway, Served offers an innovative take on breakfast and lunch classics. The eclectic menu features everything from banana Oreo Nutella pancakes to tacos made with sweet Filipino sausage. Most notably, there’s an extensive selection of Benedicts, including a short rib variety and a pork belly Benedict with Thai chili Hollandaise.
