In Vegas, divulge in all the senses – including taste. A trip to Sin City is a lot more than flashy hotels, high-kicking shows and glamorous casinos. It’s also about food – glorious food. From gourmet buffets to a delicious Foodie Walk tour to celebrity chefs to rollicking dinner shows, Vegas hits the spot.
In Sin City, gluttony is not a sin – especially when you’re feasting at one of the city’s beloved buffets. Start your food jaunt by grazing at the Bellagio
’s buffet, on rich foods like mussels, quail and duck. Are you more of a morning person? Fill up on crepes and French toast at the breakfast buffet at Monte Carlo Resort and Casino
. And did we mention that there’s also a champagne brunch option on Sundays? Top off your tastebud tour at the Carnival World Buffet at Rio Las Vegas, a renowned restaurant known for its global cuisines and expansive array of cultural delicacies.
Food Tours of America guarantees that you won’t leave Las Vegas on an empty stomach. On the Las Vegas Foodie Walk, uncover four of the city’s best sit-down restaurants, with both sweet and savory options. Delicacies you’ll discover include vodka-infused onion rings at Celebrity Chef Drive-Thru, steamy Sriracha wings at Table 10 and Italian spreads from Mercato Della Pescheria. Plus, since this is a walking tour, feel free to leave the guilt at the door as you walk off those extra calories – and as you savor that one alcoholic beverage included with tour admission.
Vegas live entertainment meets the Middle Ages in the Tournament of Kings at
Excalibur Hotel and Casino. Gaze out upon the arena as live horses trot around the premises, with knights riding atop and flashing their glistening armor. Jesters abound and pyrotechnics explode in this immersive, live dinner theater in Sin City. Chow down on your gourmet, three-course meal while also capturing glimpses of fantastical wizards and timely royals parading the promenade.
Las Vegas isn’t just fueled by alcohol. The Strip also reveals a host of delicious desserts, which you can sample on the Food Tours of America’s Las Vegas Dessert Walk. Treats on the journey include Godiva chocolate hand-dipped from trained chocolatiers, macarons from chef Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bakery and treats from St. Mark’s Square’s Mercato Della Pescheria. With three sit-down dessert tastings and three shopping stops, you’ll leave fully satiated on sweets.
Glitz and glam define Las Vegas; its restaurants are no different. Celebrity chefs dominate the food scene, from José Andrés to Wolfgang Puck. For starters, sink your teeth into a savory steak by Mario Batali at Carnevino, and then cleanse your palate in preparation for Gordon Ramsay’s pub at Caesar’s Palace. One of the most famous chefs to have a station in Vegas, Ramsay has spared no expense, with 36 beers on tap, Colorado double chop lamb, ale-battered fish and chips and, of course, iconic British telephone booths. Finish your tour de food with José Andrés’ cuisine at Bazaar Meat, where Mexican treats meet Chinese flair.
