1. Best Friend
Best Friend is a blend of LA’s Korean-Mexican scene meets Las Vegas dining. Located at Park MGM in Las Vegas, NV, the Korean BBQ joint features a laid-back menu with satirical headings like “L.A. SH*T” and “VEGAS SH*T.” The Koreatown-inspired cuisine offers a unique experience with dishes like Korean BBQ tacos, grapefruit soju (an alcoholic drink made from rice), and Frosé slushies. Owner Roi Choi—dubbed the street food king—is making headlines in Netflix’s The Chef Show, alongside legendary actor and producer, Jon Favreau. Each episode features award-winning chefs like Jessica Largey, who show off their cooking skills and teach the audience how to make their signature dishes.
Yardbird serves up everything from brunch to dessert and features classic southern comfort staples like chicken & waffles, shrimp & grits, strawberry peach cobbler, and skillet cornbread. With locations in big cities like Miami, Dallas, D.C., and even Singapore, Yardbird delivers mouth-watering BBQ ribs, lobster mac & cheese, and a book of alcoholic beverages with classics like Old Fashioneds and rosé. These panhandle favorites are prepared by Chef Kimberly-Ann Ryan, winner of Hell’s Kitchen, season 16, hosted by Judge Gordon Ramsay.
3. Beauty & Essex
Have a one-of-a-kind experience inside the jewelry-box-styled dining room at Beauty & Essex, located within The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The restaurant boasts 230 seats for indoor dining, plus 90 more chairs in the bar and Pearl Lounge. Their menu features everything from grilled cheese, smoked bacon & tomato soup dumplings to roasted bone marrow, and maple glazed Brussel sprouts. The restaurant opened in May 2016 under Chef Chris Santos’ leadership. His name may sound familiar as he was a judge on the Food Network’s Chopped. Conclude your meal with a visit to their on-site pawn shop to take home a stunning gift as a souvenir.
You don’t have to travel off The Strip for a great steak. Visit Wolfgang Puck’s CUT at The Palazzo Las Vegas for 21-day wet-aged filet mignon and 40 oz. Bone-in Tomahawk steak. CUT first opened its doors in 2006 with a location in Beverly Hills, CA, where it was named Restaurant of the Year by Esquire Magazine and awarded a Michelin star. Wolfgang Puck expanded locations in New York, D.C., and Vegas, serving up Wagyu sliders, Cookies and Cream Baked Alaska, and vodka cocktails. Drooling yet?
While Peppermill is technically still on The Strip, it’s worth a trip to fully envelop yourself in this iconic Las Vegas experience. Enjoy classic omelets, clubhouse sandwiches, and Bloody Marys in the glow of this red, pink, and blue neon-lit lounge. Embrace the ‘70s with retro-style booths and features like a sunken seating area. Cool off from the Vegas heat with a Coronarita, their signature margarita served with a slice of lime and a 7 oz. Corona beer!
Feeling the hangover blues? Visit Therapy, which is known for its lobster grilled cheese, red velvet waffle sliders, and cocktails like The Smash—made with bourbon, blackberries, fresh lime, and mint. Their menu offers everything from Thai Styled Tilapia to Not Your Mama’s French Toast—made with brioche slices, berries, caramelized sugar, and a drizzle of caramel.

Calling all craft beer lovers! Tenaya Creek Brewery lets you sip while you play pool and other classic bar games.

8. The Black Sheep
In the mood for some Vietnamese? Treat your tastebuds to items like Grilled Spanish Octopus, Bao Sliders, Grass Fed Ribeye, and Fried Whole Rainbow Trout at The Black Sheep.
