How to Eat Your Way Through the Las Vegas Strip in 24 Hours

Make every second count

The skyline of Las Vegas.
| Amelinda B Lee/Eater Vegas

As the Entertainment Capital of the World, Las Vegas welcomed 42.2 million visitors in 2019, with, well, far fewer in 2020 with the pandemic. Still, as life returns to a new normal, tourists continue to visit by car and by plane. Countless options can satisfy any hunger no matter what time of day, but it would take weeks of nonstop eating just to scratch the surface of what’s available. To make things less daunting, the 24-hour itinerary below will help visitors get the most out of their time on the Las Vegas Strip by highlighting some of the most essential spots in town.

7 a.m. — Bouchon

For those getting a head start on exploring the city, hit up Thomas Keller’s Bouchon at the Venetian, tucked away in the Venezia Tower at the resort. Sit on the patio and start with an assortment of pastries, beignets, or the quiche of the day while looking out at the serene pool.

11 a.m. — Tom’s Urban

If you’re getting a later start to the day after a wild night on the Strip, the brunch menu at Tom’s Urban at New York-New York is the place to be for breakfast fare and people-watching. The menu features an omelet stuffed with bacon, smoked ham, and pork sausage, a crispy chicken and cornbread pancake, and a house-made take on Pop Tarts, shown above. Bottomless mimosas are available as well.

12:30 p.m. — Estiatorio Milos

Head to the Venetian for lunch at Estiatorio Milos, where diners can order a variety of fresh Mediterranean seafood off of a prix fixe menu for $38, with selections such as tuna tartare, grilled octopus, Dorade royale, wild salmon, or Colorado prime lamb chops.

3 p.m. — Vice Versa Patio & Lounge

This trendy lounge at Vdara features a patio with fire pits, heat lamps, and a water feature. The patio space is great for small groups and dates. Be sure to try the penicillin cocktail with premium scotch, ginger, lemon, and a float of (more scotch!) Laphroaig 10-year.

6 p.m. — Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen

Gordon Ramsay’s fifth Las Vegas restaurant at the front on Caesars Palace always has huge lines of diners waiting outside. The restaurant offers lunch, dinner, and an all-day breakfast menu. Much like the television show, the restaurant features a blue and red side, with an open kitchen for patrons to watch guest chefs from Hell’s Kitchen or dine on their fare. In case fans want some souvenirs, the restaurant even has a gift shop. On the menu is a greatest hits sampler of Ramsay’s local menus, including his signature beef Wellington, a shellfish tower, sticky toffee pudding, and appropriately, a Caesar salad. Make this reservation far in advance.

9 p.m. — Eiffel Tower Restaurant

Head 100 feet up inside the faux Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas to dine at Eiffel Tower Restaurant with its jaw dropping views of the Strip and the Fountains at Bellagio. Veal medallions, pork tenderloins, ballotine of rabbit, and a roasted rack of duck are just some of the French dishes on the menu. Request table 56 for the most romantic table in the city

Midnight — Allegro

The party is just getting started at midnight. Until 3 a.m. on weekends and 1 a.m. on weekdays, Allegro at Wynn Las Vegas dishes out meatballs, bianca pizzas, veal piccata, pappardelle with wild boar ragu, and baked lasagna.

3 a.m. — The Henry

The diner at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas doesn’t open until 10 p.m. on weeknights and 11 p.m. Thursday through Sundays for short rib Benedicts and big brioche French toast. Seriously, finding a restaurant on the Las Vegas Strip open late is tough since the pandemic hit.
