There’s no doubt that the past 20 months have been hard for tourism-dependent Las Vegas, and many restaurants have shuttered. Yet, there have also been many great new restaurants that opened their doors since, especially after the city’s reopening. On the Strip we have a restaurant that blends dining and entertainment, a glamorous supper club and the most Instagrammable hot pot restaurant. Beyond Las Vegas Strip, there are now more reasons to venture to Arts District and Summerlin from luxe steakhouses to great restaurants that serve both the locals and tourists alike. So what are you waiting for? Head on over to Sin City to explore some of the best restaurants Las Vegas has to offer.
The 11 Best Restaurants in Las Vegas Worth Heading to Sin City For
The first restaurant from Spiegelworld, the production company behind popular Las Vegas shows like Absinthe and Opium, Superfrico melds the world of dining and entertainment. Dubbed an Italian American Psychedelic cuisine, Superfrico brings square pan pizzas and chicken Parm from “pizza czar” Anthony Falco, cocktails from award-winning bar director Leo Robitschek (who also runs the bar program at NoMad), and throws in live entertainment throughout dinner from the cast of Opium, who are performing in the adjacent space. So yeah, it’s a feast for all the senses.

2. The X Pot
The X Pot is what happens when Chinese hot pot meets the Las Vegas strip. There’s a creamy lobster broth and A5 Miyazaki wagyu beef for the hot pot (served on a golden cow), langoustine sashimi, and wagyu foie gras bibimbap. All this decadence is served amid interactive light shows and floor-to-ceiling projections with robotic servers.
