Battered and Brewed Foodie Guide: Top 10 Places to Dine and Drink in Las Vegas

Battered and Brewed Foodie Guide: Top 10 Places to Dine and Drink in Las Vegas

I think the food scene in Vegas is one of the best in the world and is thriving. Celebrity chefs have taken over on the strip with restaurants that offer big-name Michelin-star dining. From upscale to casual dining, the restaurants are committed to culinary excellence, masterful mixology, enlivening design, and service that is energetic, yet unassuming. 

Dining choices in Vegas are almost too many to imagine. I’m here to help. In no particular order, here’s what you simply have to eat when you’re in Las Vegas. There’s always something for every taste, and you’ll never find yourself asking where to eat in Las Vegas.
