Eventually you are going to have to pass on the deal and go grab something to eat.  Lucky for you, even if you were unlucky at the table, Las Vegas has almost as many restaurants as it does slot machines.  Well, that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but you know what we’re getting at. Here’s a look at the best cuisine in town, starting from when you just hit it big and ending with a declined bank card.  Pretty much the same way your day at the roulette wheel went.

Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace:  The pinnacle of dining in Las Vegas.  This restaurant has won more awards than any other on the strip.  In order to afford a meal here, you really need to hit the jackpot, as it is not surprising for dinner for one to run over $200.  But when you choose to dine at Guy Savoy, you are transported to a top of the line Parisian restaurant with its menu, the décor and even the attention of the staff.

Twist by Pierre Gagnaire at the Mandarin Oriental:  This is the one and only restaurant owned by Michelin award winning Pierre located in the United States.  The food of course is incredible, ranging in plate averages of over $100, but the real treat is with the décor.  Sculptured globes hang down from the ceiling giving diners a sensation of dining under the stars.  Platform seating ensures that every guest is able to take in the breathtaking view of the Las Vegas strip, luring you back to the Black Jack table.

André’s at the Monte Carlo:  One of three Vegas restaurants owned by renowned chef André Rochat, this is the one that has received the most public accolades.  Here you will find contemporary French cuisine that will ignite your taste buds. Don’t choose this restaurant if you are looking for simplicity. This is a spot that caters to those who are willing to try food they can’t pronounce for an average of $50 to $100 per plate.

Over 12,000 bottles of wine available.

Nove Italiano at the Palms:  Before hitting the penthouse party at Moon, stop by this classic Italian restaurant located on the 51st floor of the Palms Fantasy Tower.  With a plate average of $35 to $75, you can enjoy your favorite Italian fare like chicken parmigiana or rigatoni Bolognese.  With the breathtaking view of the Vegas skyline, you will find yourself lingering over that last bite of tiramisu, too enchanted by the settings to leave.

Andrea’s at the Encore Hotel and Casino:  East meets west at this luxurious Asian-fusion inspired restaurant.  One of the luxurious things about it is the fact that they just can’t say Chinese food like the rest of us.  The menu has a wide array of sushi, seafood, soups and just about anything else you can think off the Chinese takeout menu hanging on your frig back home, except that this food tastes better.  Plus it’s priced right with a plate average in the $15 to $35 dollar range.

The Fremont Hotels Paradise Buffet & Café:   Even if you just broke your bank, the breakfast and lunch buffet at the Fremont will still make you feel like a million bucks.  Oversized booths, fake palm trees and mirrored chandeliers bring back an element of the ‘50’s.  As does their $7.99 lunch buffet.  Eight stations await that promise you will be able to find something appetizing to ease your wounded ego.

Old school Vegas buffet!
