Choosing a restaurant in Las Vegas can be challenging. The city presents an almost dizzying array of eateries. Should one book a table at a celeb-studded hot spot on the Strip or retreat away from the neon and have a meal at a restaurant that’s frequented by locals? For those who prefer the latter, the northwest part of Las Vegas offers a slew of unexpected culinary gems, including quick bites for travelers on their way to Mt. Charleston and sit-down restaurants for date night. From creative hot dogs to Korean barbecue, here are five restaurants to try in northwest Las Vegas this weekend.

North Beach Italian Bistro

Rustic Italian Fare

With its warm-toned decor and thoughtfully chosen artwork, North Beach Italian Bistro sets the stage for an intimate dinner. The menu features rustic Italian fare made with local and imported ingredients. A memorable meal begins with the restaurant's signature salad served with dry ricotta and honey balsamic and moves onto hearty pasta dishes such as gnocchi with pesto or cioppino (shellfish and salmon over pasta). Classic Italian desserts such as tiramisu and gelato affogato complete the meal.

North Beach Italian Bistro, 7770 W. Ann Road; 702-658-0579

Market Grille Cafe

Mediterranean Fusion Fare

When Joe Pierro married his wife Rhonda, his love of Italian cooking and her Greek heritage became the inspiration for Market Grille Cafe. The Mediterranean fusion restaurant offers an extensive menu of gyros, pastas, skewers, and salads that honor both cultures. On the Mediterranean side of things, diners find dishes such as pomegranate chicken and Cabernet roasted lamb and on the Italian side, there’s eggplant parmesan and fusilli with spinach basil.

Named after the sound of happy Korean cows, Moo Woo Korean BBQ’s menu is perfect for those who like to dine family style. The barbecue combo menu allows everyone an opportunity to taste brisket, pork belly and marinated sweet chicken along with sides like spicy ramen and kimchi stew. On the a la carte side of things, diners find steamed dumplings, spicy rice cakes and pork jowl served with bean paste stew.
