Eating Las Vegas 2019

Las Vegas is now recognized as one of the most exciting food cities in the world, with an overwhelming number of choices ranging from bargain buffets to celebrity-chef-run gourmet rooms. Filling out a dining itinerary here is no easy chore.

That’s where Eating Las Vegas comes in.

After considering hundreds of contenders both within and beyond the dozens of world-class casino-resorts, the city’s top food critic, John Curtas, has assembled this exclusive guide to the “52 Essential” restaurants in Las Vegas.

ELV 2019 also features dedicated sections on the exploding Chinatown district, Sin City’s top roster of steakhouses, and the flourishing French-cuisine scene, along with quick-reference lists highlighting the best bets for buffets, burgers, pizza, AYCE sushi, desserts, cheap eats, late-night dining, classic Vegas hangs, people watching, and more. Topical essays take you deep inside Las Vegas’ culinary culture, including John’s list of the city’s “Bottom 10,” as well as “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, his “Perfect Meal.” New to this edition is a commemoration of the late Joël Robuchon, whose eponymous restaurant at MGM Grand is featured on the cover.

Now in its seventh edition, Eating Las Vegas has become the premier source for Las Vegas dining information. With reviews covering the entire scene top to bottom, from the Strip’s most lavish dining rooms to hole-in-the-wall ethnic gems, this 2019 volume puts the city’s entire extraordinary dining experience in your hands.
