Ten Places to Eat in Las Vegas… Cont.

 Didn’t get enough of places to eat in Las Vegas? There are hundreds of cool places to relax and enjoy mouth-watering food; knowing just where to go in Vegas is the key. Whether it’s on or off the Strip, Go Lost will narrow a few of our favorite places down to make the choices a little less difficult and a little more appetizing.

#6. Brio Tuscan Grille

There is a fairly new addition to Las Vegas, and it’s considered the south end of the Strip, called Town Square. This is a great place for outdoor shopping (if the weather isn’t scorching) and is a relaxing environment. Sit outside in the warm sun at the Brio in Town Square aPhotoMailnd enjoy some of their famous bruschetta. It is hard to pick between their varieties, though I would recommend the Sliced Steak Bruschetta accompanied by gorgonzola dolce, arugula, fennel, charred tomatoes and shaved parmigiano-reggiano…. enticing  enough? As you enjoy the taste of tuscany, you may forget that you’re not in Italy but in Las Vegas.

#7. Gold Spike Grill

Downtown Las Vegas has encountered a facelift and has become a trendier place to chill with friends, anytime of the day or night. Gold Spike Grill is known among the locals for just the right place to grab a casual bite to eat. This is a great place for value and great comfort food. Try the French Toast or the Biscuits and Gravy (poor grandmas’ will never be the same), topped off with the arrays of hot sauces that are not only colorful but vary in temperatures. When walking around Freemont St. stop in for a late night snack to breakfast; and when you’re done eating, hangout on the oversized beanbags or play life size Connect the Dots.

#8. Fogo de Chao Las Vegas

Jump in a taxi and head off the Strip a bit for some authentic churrascaria. This full-service Brazilian steakhouse has a fixed price for an endless salad bar and tableside meat service.  If you have never been to a Brazilian steakhouse, there is two parts to it. First is the salad bar which has everything from smoked salmon to imported cheeses. Ask the server for pao de queijo- cheese bread…. If you love bread, this is an experience for you; light and cheesy. The second part of the meal is the meat. Love high quality meat, great! Because you are in for a treat. When enjoying the salad bar and the company, servers will come around offering many cuts and choices of meat. Brazilians are known for their usage of garlic, so be sure to try the garlic/butter filet mignon… mouth-watering to say the least. Top off your whole experience south of the equator with caramelized bananas, and you won’t go wrong.

#9. Mastro’s Ocean House photo 2 (29)

Mastros is a bit heavy on the wallet, but worth it. Everything on the menu is excellent, from the vanilla battered shrimp to the bone-in filet. Start off with one of their items from their sushi selection (the seared albacore with black truffle will disappear within seconds of hitting the table) or even the garlic escargot.The ala carte menu by all means is large enough to share with the whole table. When ordering lobster or steak, don’t waste your time trying to pick the best accompanied side dish, order either the lobster mashed potatoes or my all-time favorite, the Alaskan king crab black truffle gnocchi. I’d describe the dishes, but words cannot explain what they do to your taste buds. If it’s a little expensive for your budget, sit at the bar, try one of their creative martinis and enjoy Mastro’s signature warm butter cake; with fresh berries, sugar and butter that has been glazed and crystalized by a flame torch and served with a mound of whipped cream… need I say more!?

#10. Yama Sushi

Love sushi? This is one of the best hidden secrets in Las Vegas. Tucked in a shopphoto 1 (30)ping center off the Strip, is some of the best sushi you’ll ever have. Ask for the all you can eat, which is $25, and they don’t stop until you say when. With names that might make you blush, they will definitely make you say Mmmmm when you order the Strip Tease, the Happy Ending or many of their other colorful..(named?) rolls.

There you go! So the next time you feel like visiting Sin City, get creative and enjoy some of Las Vegas best….
