Las Vegas is home to so many world-class restaurants and bars that it can be overwhelming to decide on where to go for dinner. If you’re visiting Las Vegas for the first time, try not to settle for a chain restaurant because there are a multitude of unique options that you won’t find anywhere else. The following restaurants are ones where you’re sure to get a great meal and probably find a few locals in.
If you’re in the mood for some delicious authentic Italian made from the freshest ingredients, look no further than Ferraro’s. Here you won’t find anything bland or pre-made, only homemade pasta and sauces expertly crafted by their incredible chefs.

Head away from the strip to Spring Valley if you want to go to a place where chefs go on their nights off. The menu at Other Mama was designed by chef Dan Krohmer who took his love for Japanese food to the next level when he visited Japan with a friend and ended up living there for two years. While he was there, he absorbed everything he could about the cuisine and culture and came back to the states to start his own restaurant right in Las Vegas. Here you’ll find the freshest seafood with Asian influences and uncomplicated menu items.
The owner of Carson Kitchen wanted to create a casual eatery in downtown Las Vegas that had some urban attitude and sense of style. When you go to Carson Kitchen, it’s good to have a sense of what that location used to be when it was John E. Carson’s Casino in the 1950s.
A trip to Las Vegas wouldn’t be complete without a stop to Top of the World at the Stratosphere unless you’re afraid of heights. Top of the World is located at the top of the Stratosphere hotel and casino at 844 feet in the air. While you eat your meal, look down at the bright lights of Las Vegas.
