In this digital world, few restaurant guidebooks remain, but Las Vegas is lucky! Eating Las Vegas is not only a dedicated guide to some of the best eateries in the U.S., it’s written by the widely recognized expert on the Vegas food scene, the inimitable John Curtas.
After considering—and eating at—hundreds of contenders both inside and out of the city’s dozens of world-class resorts, John has assembled this exclusive guide to the “Essential 52” restaurants in Las Vegas.
And he doesn’t stop there. In addition to the top 52, this 2018 edition features sections on the burgeoning Chinatown district, the potentially best-in-the-country roster of steakhouses, French restaurants, and burger joints, the batch of recently arrived chain restaurants, and John’s list of the city’s “Bottom 10.”
In addition, quick-reference lists highlight the best bets for buffets, Italian and pizza, Mexican, sushi, desserts, cheap eats, late-night dining, and more. And new to this edition are topical essays, including “The Job of a Restaurant Critic,” “The Glories of Dining Alone,” “Chef Worship,” “Twenty Suggestions for Dining Out in Style,” and, after upwards of 12,000 Vegas restaurant experiences in 25 years, John’s “Perfect Meal.”
Now in its sixth edition, Eating Las Vegas has become the premier source for Las Vegas dining information. With reviews ranging from some of the Strip’s most lavish dining rooms to hole-in-the-wall ethnic gems, this 2018 volume puts the city’s entire extraordinary dining experience in your hands.
