Following an Eater tradition, we asked a group of restaurant critics, journalists, bloggers, and friends of the site to weigh in on the year in food. Their answers to the annual Year in Eater survey will be revealed in several posts. Next up, the dining experts share their favorite dining neighborhoods.
Andy Wang, contributor, Food & Wine: There’s a lot more competition now, but it’s still Chinatown.
Krista Diamond, Eater Vegas contributor: Chinatown
Rob Kachelriess, Las Vegas writer, Thrillist: Chinatown continues to have the best combination of cuisine and price points but at the moment, I’m most excited about the Downtown Arts District. Overall, it’s more of a bar scene than a dining scene, but it’s evolving dramatically and will look very different in just a few years — if not sooner.
Philip Tzeng, food blogger LasVegasFill: You can get your fix of a wide variety of delicious meals in SW Vegas in literally any direction. The Black Sheep, Suzuya, Elia, Forte, Umezono, Mint Indian Bistro, Big B’z…and the list goes on and on!!
Scott Roeben, Vital Vegas: Isn’t that The Strip every year? We truly have some of the most magnificent restaurant options anywhere in the world.
Melanie Lee, Eater Vegas Instagram manager: I’m loving all the new additions in Chinatown this year! There is so much more than Asian food in that area and it keeps growing. It’s such a central area too.
Susan Stapleton, editor of Eater Vegas: The three and a half miles of the Strip is the most egalitarian, welcoming but delivering eating neighborhood in any major North American city.
