During my visit to Vegas in December, I stopped by Tom‘s Urban, which is located inside the New York, New York Hotel & Casino on the Vegas Strip.

It’s a casual American restaurant that literally has something for everyone. The menu is pretty extensive, which is a good thing, especially for families and larger parties.  

Overall, I thought the food was pretty tasty and of good quality for the price. The portions were ample and the cocktails were decent as well. The Mini Mac & Cheese Pot, made with Pork green chile carnitas and pico de gallo was delicious and is definitely worth a try.

Check out some pictures.

“Wolfgang Puck” is one of the top five names when discussing celebrity chefs. So of course, in a city filled with nothing but celebrity chefs (young & old), the Wolfgang Puck Bar and Grill is definitely a “must try” when dining on the Vegas Strip.

Located in the MGM Grand Casino and Hotel, around the corner from other celebrity chefs such as, Morimoto and Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House, Wolfgang Puck is the perfect location to enjoy classic American favorites in a chic yet relaxed environment.

During my last visit to Vegas, I made a pit stop at Wolfgang Puck to enjoy a glass of wine, some Tuna Tartare and an Italian Sausage Pizza, which was topped with Crème Fraiche, Mozzarella, Red Onion, Fresno Chilies and Baby Spinach.

Of course, everything was delicious.  To my surprise, the pizza was one of my favorite things I ate during my visit to Vegas.

Overall, Wolfgang Puck is a solid lunch option on the strip, so the next time you’re in Vegas, don’t forget to check it out.

During my visit to Sin City last month, I had the opportunity to stop by Mon Ami Gabi, a beautiful French Bistro on the Las Vegas Strip in the Paris Las Vegas Hotel. Everything about Mon Ami Gabi is fantastic; from the atmosphere to the delicious French food to the fantastic service. And, as a bonus, if the weather permits, you can sit outside and people watch on the Vegas Strip!

As such, Mon Ami Gabi should be on your top 5 list of restaurant to visit on the Vegas stip, especially  If you’re looking for something different beside the typical buffet or steakhouse. Just to warn you, the restaurant  gets packed for breakfast, so get there early or be prepared to wait.

Infamous Chef Masaharu Morimoto is an original Iron Chef and is now one of the most respected Japanese chefs worldwide. His resume is extensive; which includes being the head chef at New York’s famous original Nobu restaurant.  Today Morimoto’s restaurants are featured around the globe including the acclaimed Morimoto in Philadelphia and New York.

While long overdue, Morimoto has finally arrived in Vegas, appropriately at the MGM Grand Hotel.

During my visit to Vegas last month, I had the opportunity to stop by and have a bite at Morimoto. Of course, I was not disappointed. The food was fantastic and the quality was superb. Since I didn’t have a plan for my visit at Morimoto, I really just ordered whatever caught my attention. Here’s what I had:

 

Morimoto tacos (made with Tuna)


Seafood entrée – made with lobster, king crab, mussel, clam, diver scallop, red spicy broth


Salmon Rolls


 

Overall, it’s Vegas, which means there’s a plethora of fancy restaurants and celebrity chefs to choose from. However, being a Morimoto fan,  I recommend that you put Morimoto at the top of your list, especially if you’re a sushi lover! You won’t be disappointed. -AR
