Sure, the venue at Caesars Palace could probably have a more creative name than “The Colosseum,” but it’s simple and it makes sense. We feel the same way about dinner at Nobu. Yes, it’s technically a massive international chain, but it serves consistently great, upscale food and the servers are quick but not rushed if you let them know you’ve got tickets to see Mariah Carey or Journey. It’s definitely pricey, but it always feels celebratory and is approximately a two-minute walk from The Colosseum. Nobu’s known for their sushi, but non-sushi dishes, like the creamy spicy crab or the black cod miso, are worth getting too.

This 24 hour spot in The Cosmopolitan works just as well for breakfast beignets as it does for a reasonably-priced lunch, or middle of the night meal.
Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips
The fish at Gordon Ramsay Fish and Chips in the Linq Hotel is great, but you’re really there for the chips which you can get covered in chorizo.
Spago has one of the best views of the Bellagio fountains, so sit outside and eat some great - but pricey - Spanish-style appetizers and pasta.

The menu at Catch in the ARIA is almost all seafood, and the entryway is one of the most beautiful you’ll ever see.
The reverse Happy Hour at Izakaya Go in Chinatown is an amazing deal, but their menu of Japanese small plates is already super reasonably priced.
