2. Raku

Visit Website

It’s worth it to venture off the strip for dinner at Raku, where you can sample through the menu of izakaya-style dishes, including lots of grilled meats, noodles, and sushi dishes. If you’ve got a big appetite, opt for the chef’s tasting menu, which will give you the opportunity to sample all the hits.

3. Phở Kim Long Restaurant

4023 W Spring Mountain Rd
Las Vegas, NV 89102
(702) 220-3613
Visit Website

If a perfect bowl of pho sounds like your ideal solo meal, this is the place to have it. For less than $10, you can have some of the best noodle soup in the city. The rare steak and brisket soup offers an umami effect that’s warming from the inside out.

4. Big Dan Shanxi Taste

5115 Spring Mountain Rd Ste A
Las Vegas, NV 89103
(702) 363-6669
Visit Website

Tucked inside a grocery store, the diners at Big Dan Shanxi Taste are largely solo eaters, so you won’t feel out of place. The special hot oil noodles with tomato and eggs is particularly satisfying, but you can’t go wrong with the menu of Xi’an specialties.

620 E Flamingo Rd
Las Vegas, NV 89119
(702) 735-3033
Visit Website

Enjoy some of the best Thai food in the country (with a wine list that’s just as famous) at Lotus of Siam. Let the servers guide you if you’re not sure what you want, but don’t miss the Khao soi, a dish of crispy duck with curry sauce served on top of egg noodles.

6. Carbone

ARIA Resort & Casino, 3730 S Las Vegas Blvd
Las Vegas, NV 89158
(877) 230-2742
Visit Website

It’s pretty impossible to get a reservation at Carbone, but if you’re flying solo, you have a reasonable chance of snagging bar stool and the chance to indulge in rigatoni in a spicy, chile-infused vodka sauce and veal Milanese, as well as the opportunity to be transported back in time.

7. The NoMad Library

Copy Link
3772 S Las Vegas Blvd
Las Vegas, NV 89109
(702) 730-6785
Visit Website

Walking through the door into the NoMad Library feels like transporting yourself as far as possible from the chaos of the casino just feet away. Cozy up at the bar and enjoy a cocktail, some oysters, and the feeling of eating dinner inside the fanciest library you’ve ever walked into.

8. Eataly

Park MGM, 3770 S Las Vegas Blvd
Las Vegas, NV 89109
(702) 730-7617
Visit Website

If what you’re after is a quick bite that’s still delicious, head to Eataly, where you’ll have your pick of stations with options including fresh pastas and seafood, piled-high salads, and crisp pizzas.
