This time of year, the weather in Las Vegas is about as perfect as it can get, an optimal time for patio dining. Do it Stripside, across from the famed Bellagio fountains, when you book a table at Hexx Kitchen + Bar.

The brunch and dinner menus at Hexx are filled with elevated American cuisine. From 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., enjoy dishes like brioche French toast, Cinnaroll waffles, chicken fried steak, buttermilk pancakes, shrimp basil pesto pizza, prime rib French dip and turkey club sandwiches and several salad options.

For dinner, dig into entrées like pan-seared salmon, branzino, braised short ribs and the filling and popular Hexx burger. Pastas include a spaghetti carbonara

with pepper-crusted bacon and smoked fontina bechamel sauce, and a cavatelli alla vodka with lobster and fresh San Marzano tomatoes.
