Jenny's Best of Vegas/Great Eats Edition: Part I


I promised a list of great eats in and around my favorite shopping areas in Vegas in my latest post: "Jenny's Best of Vegas/Shopping Edition" 

*Restaurants with an asterisks (*) indicate they are located in separate Vegas shopping areas.
If you have particular foodie needs (i.e. allergies, special diet), I recommend going to the main restaurant website or calling to ensure they can accommodate you. :)
Travel times are via car/taxi and are estimated in minutes (from the shopping area).

So without further ado -- here it is!

::Las Vegas North Premium Outlets::
eat.
707 Carson Street (at 7th), Las Vegas, NV 89101
8 minutes from Las Vegas North Premium Outlets
A quick taxi ride from the outlets or Fremont Street for breakfast or lunch. 
After picking up my parents from the airport, they wanted breakfast -- 
so I took them here. Be sure to check out Downtown Container Park across 
the street from eat.. It's amazing American cuisine. You will not be disappointed! If you are driving yourself, there is metered parking (I don't recall seeing a parking lot). Check out the menu here. 

::Fashion Show Mall::
El Segundo Sol
3200 S. Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
First level of Fashion Show Mall.
On corner of Las Vegas Blvd & Fashion Show Drive
-Margarita's and Mexican food anyone? This place is located on the strip at Fashion Show Mall. We held my friend Amber's bachelorette dinner party here. Check out the menu here.

Grimaldi's Pizzeria
3200 S. Las Vegas Blvd, Suite 1540, Las Vegas, NV 89109 
Located on the lower level of Fashion Show Mall across from Apple.
Live Runway Shows directly in front of Grimaldi's
-The pizza was delectable. My topping's of choice: pepperoni and sun-dried tomatoes! I especially loved their half carafe's of vino! The half carafe is the perfect amount to share with a friend. The live runway shows occur right outside Grimaldi's doors on selected weekends. Check out the menu here.

-Coming soon to Fashion Show Mall! Check out the menu here.  


Magianno's Little Italy
3200 S. Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Located on second level of Fashion Show Mall.
On corner of Las Vegas Blvd & Fashion Show Drive.
-I haven't been to this location, but I have been to one in Texas. Their baked ziti is pretty darn amazing! Check out the menu here.

::Showcase Mall::
Diablos Cantina
3770 S. Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Short walk (less than 10 minutes) from Showcase Mall (connected to Monte Carlo).  
-Shortly after arriving to Vegas, we met up with friends visiting from out-of-town and this is where we ate. It's good Mexican food right on the strip. First floor is dining and the second floor is an open-air bar with live entertainment. Check out the menu here.


::Town Square Las Vegas::
*Brio
6653 S. Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89119
Located in Town Square Las Vegas. 
-Delicious and decently priced italian food. I especially like the open, airy feeling at this location. Everything I've ordered here has been wonderful. I visited both locations on multiple occasions. I took a friend, Amy, from Montana to this location and she loved the roasted garlic, spinach and artichoke dip appetizer. We also took our good friends, Candis and Andy, when they visited from Colorado and they were both pleased as well. Check out the menu here.
Our friends Candis and Andy at Brio (Town Square) (April 2013).

*Kabuki Japanese Restaurant
6605 S. Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89119
Located in Town Square Las Vegas. 
-Sushi restaurant with great sushi and happy hour prices. The interior decorator did an amazing job, because everything in there is eye-catching! My friend Sandy introduced me to Kabuki. I went to two locations in Vegas and I was pleasantly stuffed after each visit. I especially loved their tempura fried green tea ice cream (its the size of a softball!). Check out the menu here.

Texas de Brazil
6533 S. Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89119
Located on north end of Town Square off of Sunset Rd.
-Ever been to a Brazilian Steakhouse? Well, this one won't leave you hungry, that's for sure! It's a bit pricey per person (lunch is much cheaper than dinner).The salad bar is awesome, but don't fill up too much because when the meats come, they will be hard to pass up!  The numerous waiters holding large skewers of meat walk around asking guests if they'd like some. Each guest is given a card to flip green meaning "Keep it coming!" or red meaning "Taking a break" or "I'm full." It's a fun experience and you will DEFINITELY get your money's worth and if you indulge too much, you could possibly get the "meat sweats" (exact words from my husband) later on. Check out the menu here.

*Yard House
6593 S. Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89119
Located at the back section of Town Square across from movie theater.
-Awesome happy hour menu! The beer menu is extensive and I especially liked they stocked a couple beers from a brewery in my home state of Delaware -- Dogfish Head. The menu is page after page of delicious salads, entree's, tacos, pizza, sandwiches and burgers. My "house favorite" entrĂ©e was a toss up between the Mac & Cheese and the Ginger Crusted Norwegien Salmon. 


::Summerlin::
{In or Near Red Rock Casino}

*Yard House
11011 W. Charleston Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89135
Across the street from my favorite Marshalls store!
-I know I'm listing it again, but for those of you staying at Red Rock it's right downstairs right off of the casino floor. We found ourselves at this particular Yard House because it was easy to get to from our house and all of our friends. The other location is located at Town Square Las Vegas. My group of friends celebrated A LOT of their birthday's here. Check out the menu here


My Birthday dinner at Yard House (Dec 2011). 
Across the street from Marshalls.

*BJ's Restaurant/Brewhouse
10840 W. Charleston Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89135
In the same parking lot as my favorite Marshalls store!
-Never a disappointment! I remember taking advantage of the happy hour menu with friends at the location close to my house. If you can't find something to eat here -- you're just plain picky! Crisp tasting, handcrafted beers.  I especially loved their Brewhouse Blonde! Located in the same parking lot as Marshalls and across the street from Red Rock Resort and Casino. Check out the menu here


{Rampart Commons} 

Honey Salt
1031 S. Rampart Blvd., Las Vegas, NV 89145

  1. Fab resource. Thanks for taking the time to put it out there. Many years ago I visited Vegas on a ridiculously tight budget and only ate the cheapest item at the cheapest restaurant I could find. I hope I can get back and utilize your list sometime.
