Head west of the Strip to these restaurants

As Las Vegas continues to grow, the western edge of the city stretches closer to the mountains, bringing new communities and businesses to the area. For Las Vegans who would rather dine with a view of Red Rock Canyon than a view of the Strip, the growing westside offers a plethora of breakfast, lunch, and dinner options ranging from counter service to fine dining. In many cases, humble restaurant storefronts tucked into shopping plazas contain flavors that rival the world class establishments found in more touristy parts of Las Vegas.

Naturally, all of those dining options on the westside of Las Vegas often make it hard to choose just one. To make it easier, here are five restaurants to try this weekend. From a customizable take on an indulgent breakfast pastry to a heavenly bowl of teriyaki, these restaurants are perfect for any Saturday night or Sunday morning craving.

Breakfast pizza at Honey Salt

Champagne brunch

Honey Salt’s farm-to-table menu is proof that living in the desert doesn’t have to mean sacrificing fresh, local ingredients. In addition to offering monthly family-style dinners, Honey Salt also serves a notable brunch. From the baked citrus brioche monkey bread to the eggs and bacon breakfast pizza, every menu item pairs well with bottomless champagne.

Honey Salt, 1031 Rampart Blvd.; 702-445-6100

California-style Mexican in Las Vegas

Southern California-based Sharky’s Woodfired Mexican Grill fits in well in sunny Las Vegas. The menu features burritos, tacos, salads, bowls, and Mexican-inspired pizza all made with organic vegetables and local ingredients when possible. From fresh guacamole to a vegan-friendly roasted vegetable bowl packed with Brussels sprouts, beets, quinoa, and walnut-cilantro pesto, the casual restaurant offers a healthy option.

Sharky’s, 8975 W. Charleston Blvd., #140; 702-255-5605

Fresh-baked pita bread

From a hillside in Beirut all the way to the desert of Las Vegas, the Khoury family’s tradition of cooking authentic Lebanese cuisine has been passed down from generations. At Khoury’s Mediterranean Restaurant, diners can enjoy a home-cooked meal with selections such as lamb over hummus topped with roasted almonds, falafel with fresh vegetables, or crispy goat cheese. All meals come with a memorable serving of warm, straight-from-the oven pita bread served with thyme and olive oil.

Khoury's, 9340 W. Sahara Ave., #106, 702-671-0005

Custom cinnamon roll at Cinnaholic
Yelp

Customizable cinnamon rolls

If Sunday morning calls for something warm and flaky, Cinnaholic has got the answer. The gourmet bakery serves vegan, dairy-free, cholesterol-free cinnamon rolls that taste anything but. Patrons can choose from a variety of frosting flavors ranging from the standard cream cheese variety to options like maple, chai, and orange. The long list of customizable toppings includes blueberries, pecans, and even cookie dough.

Cinnaholic, 4165 S. Grand Canyon Drive, #103; 702-248-0244

Breakfast crepe at Avery’s Coffee
Facebook

Savory crepes

Tucked into a quiet little corner in Village Square, Avery’s Coffee is a true locals spot. Owners Sherman and Linda Ray roast Arabica beans in house and focus on the craftsmanship of specialty coffee drinks including cold brew and nitro brew. The real standout, however, are the breakfast crepes stuffed with bacon, cheese, eggs cooked to order and drizzled with creamy Hollandaise sauce. Paired with a freshly roasted cup of coffee, they make a perfect start to any day.
