Unfortunately for the friend who watched hours of videos on French braiding hair and archery, District One is not a Hunger Games-themed restaurant. Lucky for everyone else, it is a Vietnamese restaurant in Chinatown that serves incredibly inventive food. Start with the beef carpaccio with peanuts, citrus soy, and truffle oil, before deciding between the whole Maine lobster pho or aioli king crab legs (each one is listed as market priced and usually ends up costing around $50). They’re both basically mandatory if your table likes seafood and fun presentations. Then console your friend by promising to watch The Hunger Games on the plane back home with them.

Lamaii is one of our favorite places to eat spicy Thai food, especially since the Chinatown spot looks like a chandelier store.

Best Friend can only be described as “LA-meets-Korea-meets Vegas” so head here with a big group and stop for a slushie in the bodega out front.

When you want a reliably fantastic place to have a really big night with a group of friends, head to Momofuku in the Cosmopolitan.

Herringbone

With a nightly DC and a breezy patio, Herringbone’s seafood-heavy menu is about as close as you’ll come to the beach in Vegas.
