Check out these three dining hot spots in las Vegas
On the Strip: Nobu
The original Las Vegas Nobu restaurant at the Hard Rock had a style and scene all its own. It also was one of the longest-lasting venues at the off-Strip resort, bringing in loyal diners all the way up until the Hard Rock’s closure earlier this year. But that particular Nobu lives on. The staff and service have relocated to the center of the Strip at Bally’s (702.693.5090) until their renovated home re-opens this fall at the new Virgin Las Vegas.
This exciting Nobu experience incorporates signature dishes like yellowtail sashimi and miso black cod along with craft cocktails and selections of sake and Japanese whiskey. Snack on sushi favorites and Nobu-style tacos or indulge in one of three omakase tasting menus. Save room for dessert of cashew miso flan or the Suntory cappuccino with coffee cream and cocoa almond crunch. It’s a classic Vegas experience in a fresh environment.
Off the Strip: Wolfgang Puck Players Locker
Chef Wolfgang Puck is all in on the Vegas Golden Knights craze. Collaborating with several members of the team, Puck reconfigured his comfy bar and grill into Wolfgang Puck Players Locker (Downtown Summerlin, 702.202.6300), perfect for watching the game and having a few drinks and goodies like the taco pizza. Also on the menu: Reilly Smith’s cheese curds, William Karlsson’s vegan burger, Deryk Engelland’s fish and chips and Shea Theodore’s Gooey Deluxe, a salted caramel chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream.
The reinvention of Sahara Las Vegas continues. New to the food and drink lineup is Prendi (702.761.7000), a perfect little grab-and-go eatery where everything is made fresh in-house. Open daily at 7 a.m., Prendi provides an ideal pick-me-up with its cold-pressed juices, like the combo of carrots, honey, orange and turmeric. Pound cake, brioche buns, macarons and Madeleines are among the treats, and a unique focaccia pizza bar offers heartier options for lunch or afternoon snacks.
