Hanukkah starts at sundown on Thursday, December 7, and for eight days, the Festival of Lights celebrates with dreidels, oil-based foods such as doughnuts and latkes, and lighting the menorah. The Jewish holiday extends until December 15 and menus are available at local restaurants every day of the holiday, unless otherwise specified. Here is a look at where to celebrate Hanukkah with food in Las Vegas.

Bottiglia Enoteca & Cucina at Green Valley Ranch offers selections like homemade challah bread with honey butter ($10), potato latkes with smoked salmon and crème fraîche ($15), brisket with red wine demi-glace, glazed rainbow carrots, and sweet potatoes ($29), and chocolate babka bread pudding ($10) through Friday, December 15.
