Top 5 Picks For Pleasing Your Palate on a Patio in Vegas
Spring/Summer has sprung in Vegas, and some of your favorite eateries have already begun pulling out their patio chairs. Dining al fresco can be found all over the strip, but of course there are some restaurants that have taken the concept over the top. Whether you want lunch by the lake or prefer people watching as you dine, there is a patio in Vegas that has your name written all over it.
Lakeside Seafood at the Wynn – Almost too pretty to call a patio, the Wynn’s Lakeside Seafood sets an enchanting stage for lunch or dinner. Outdoor tables overlook the picturesque Lake of Dreams and waterfall, providing a tranquil backdrop as you bite into your baby back ribs. Reserve your outdoor table for dinner and you’ll also get a spectacular show of lights and sounds played across the water.
B&B Burger & Beer at the Venetian – You will find Mario & Joe’s burger and beer joint to be exceptionally casual while still serving burgers of the highest caliber. Skip the TVs and opt outside for the balcony, where the show that is the strip is way more entertaining than any sports game that happens to be on. Use the sun as your excuse to indulge in a liquor laced milkshake as you peer down onto the spectacular strip below.
Dal Toro Ristorante at the Palazzo – Somehow dining al fresco makes a simple pizza or panini seem like food for the Gods. Dal Toro Ristorante is warm and cozy inside, but bring your sauce-laden lunch outside and you’ll be dining right next to the Palladian Fountains. This classic Italian restaurant at the Palazzo has the patio right on the strip, so close you can almost reach out and touch Elvis as he passes by.
Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen + Bar at the Linq – About to celebrate its first birthday on the strip, Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen + Bar has to be seen and tasted to be believed. Extraordinarily unique, the UNLV grad has used his alma mater and tattoos as the backdrop for eating inside while the strip sets the stage for patio dining. Ample space and awe inspiring views combined with the fiery chef’s burger masterpieces make for a fine dining experience indeed.
Bellagio – Lago, Hyde, Prime Steakhouse & Todd English Olives! Of course any patio at the Bellagio is going to take full advantage of the fountain, and Todd English’s Olives is no exception. This exquisitely designed high-end eatery offers an authentic Mediterranean menu. With its to-die for dishes and romantic atmosphere on the patio you will feel like you’ve taken a trip back to the old country – and momma’s in the kitchen cooking.
See and be seen on any one of Vegas’s dozens of outside dining decks this summer. The food is guaranteed to be great, the booze will be flowing, and you’ll get to sit and take in some of the most spectacular scenery found in the city.
