It could be a heaping plate of eggs, a street taco smorgasbord, a loaded sandwich, or a warming bowl of pasta with a glass of wine, but whatever the impulse, it’s worth stopping to take a midday meal. Whether you’re catching a quick meal or exploring the city, you’ll need the fuel.

Come for the coffee and fresh sourdough bread. Stay for peaceful decor and overall good vibe. With a broader lunch menu than most coffee shops, Publicus is just right for an early afternoon pick-me-up. Start with a coffee and get a bento box of either orange chicken, crispy tofu, or bang bang chicken with rice and pickled veggies. Other great choices are the braised broccolini sandwich, the salad of the day, or a breakfast sandwich.

Le Thai 2

Le Thai’s lunch menu includes a lunch-sized choice of entree like curry, stir-fry, or spicy eggplant and a drink for just $12. For $2, upgrade to a Thai iced tea. Also located downtown.

Tacotarian

Vegans and meat-eaters alike flock to Tacotarian for its plant-based menu of Mexican specialties. Got for seitan versions of carne asada or al pastor, a take on a Baja-style fish taco that subs fried avocado for fish, or even a birria platter complete with broth for dipping.

Tacos El Gordo

Tacos el Gordo has two Vegas-area locations. The Strip location often has a line, but it’s worth it for Tijuana-style tacos stuffed with juicy chorizo, suadero, adobada, and more.

Until 3 p.m. every day, get breakfast, brunch, and lunch offerings in this prim garden-inspired restaurant. Start with lighter morning fare like grilled chicken omelets or bacon and egg tacos. Or go for lighter afternoon selections like burgers, grilled salmon, and quinoa Greek salad.

Chef Eyal Shani’s fast-casual Mediterranean spot at the Venetian Resort has incredibly craveable pita sandwiches. Pick up extra napkins for a pita stuffed with rib eye and tahini, a juicy pita of wild mushrooms, and one with lamb kebab and roasted tomatoes. And don’t miss the bag of green beans. It’s exactly what it sounds like — and worth every one of the $11 price tag.

Estiatorio Milos

Copy Link

The three-course lunch special at Estiatorio Milos inside the Venetian makes for a just-right business lunch or a special midday meal. For $38, start with a choice of six options, such as oysters or tomato salad. The second course offers dishes including grilled salmon or a tuna burger. And select either karydopita, baklava, or house-made Greek yogurt for dessert.

One sandwich is loaded with tri-tip, arugula, roasted peppers, pickled onion, and garlic sauce — another with pulled pork, sweet and tangy sauce, coleslaw, and red pickled onion. Get a side of seasoned fries to share.

Plenty of lunch time offerings exist within the Block 16 Urban Food Hall at the Cosmopolitan. But one not to be missed is Lardo. This Portland-based sandwich counter focuses on all things pork, with savory, meaty sandwiches on firm ciabatta bread. Go for the Korean pork shoulder sandwich for kimchi, chili mayo, and cilantro. Or order the Pho’rench Dip with shaved beef, hoisin, Thai basil and a pho broth. Bonus: every sandwich can be served as a salad or over fries.
