Never miss a great meal or drink

Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
| Louiie Victa

Since 2010, the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas has featured a collection of some of the best restaurants in Las Vegas. A roster of celebrity names — José Andrés, David Chang, Alvin Cailan, and Costas Spiliadis, to name a few — along with beloved restaurants from New Orleans and Portland make the Cosmopolitan a special stop for anyone who cares about what they eat. Add a lineup of killer cocktail and nightlife venues, and the resort serves as a one-stop shop for anyone who doesn’t want to walk outside. Here’s a look at how to spend 24 hours at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas to experience every great place to eat and drink.

7 a.m. — Eggslut

Alvin Cailan’s all-day breakfast focuses on eggs, of course. This casual spot on the second level of Cosmopolitan serves an ode to Joël Robuchon with coddled egg on top of smooth potato purée, cooked in a glass jar topped with gray salt and chives, and the gaucho sandwich with seared wagyu tri-tip steak, chimichurri, red onions, and seasoned arugula topped with an over-medium egg in a warm brioche bun.
