As the Entertainment Capital of the World, Las Vegas welcomed 42.2 million visitors in 2018. 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 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 Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas for lunch, where diners can order a variety of fresh Mediterranean seafood off of a prix-fixe menu for $29, with selections such as grilled octopus and shrimp saganaki. Diners can people-watching from the windows in the patio area.
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
Already, 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 at Paris Las Vegas 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.
Midnight — Allegro
The party is just getting started at midnight. Until 6 a.m., the restaurant dishes out meatballs, bianca pizzas, veal piccata, pappardelle with wild boar ragu, and baked lasagna. You can also try breakfast dishes such as three eggs any style, steak and eggs, or an omelet with prosciutto and mozzarella.
3 a.m. — Pantry
Inside of the Mirage, Pantry serves classic breakfast dishes any time of the day — and even soups, salads, and burgers for those who want something else. The white chocolate brioche French toast, topped with berry compote and whipped mascarpone, is a standout.
