From steakhouse dining on the Strip to burgers on the go, Las Vegas has it all when it comes to exciting dining experiences to tickle your tastebuds. It may be famous for its bright lights that dazzle and stage shows that delight, but the Entertainment Capital of the World has also become a world-class culinary destination. Whether you need a rapid refuel before heading back into the casinos or you prefer a romantic dining experience sampling sushi as you linger in the City of Light's never-ending illumination, you’re sure to find a restaurant that exceeds your expectations in every way.

Cañonita

Set right on the Grand Canal, Cañonita is an ideal place to enjoy traditional Mexican favorites while watching the gondolas glide by on the waterfront.

Cañonita fuses heritage with innovation by staying true to a menu of soulful, scratch-made Mexican recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. From flavor-packed street tacos cozied in hand-pressed tortillas to spicy sauces and house-made guacamole carefully crafted from authentic recipes, every meal is a feast for the eyes and adventure for the taste buds. Executive Chef and Mexico City native Daniel Marquez lends his creativity to traditional dishes while also incorporating items inspired by his travels throughout his home country.

The restaurant’s dining room comes alive with the sizzle of carne asada and the rattle of jalapeño margaritas where color-soaked walls, rich leather, and warm wood furnishings bring a sense of comfort. Outside the restaurant, Cañonita’s Street Taqueria food truck façade recreates an essential element of Mexico City’s culinary and cultural landscape. The walk-up experience features a variety of street foods and house-infused margaritas located along the Grand Canal facing St. Mark’s Square.

Chica

John Kunkel, owner and founder of 50 Eggs Inc.’s newest concept, Chica Las Vegas, delivers the robust and vibrant flavors of Latin cuisine combined with a dynamic wine and mixology program. Crafted by celebrity Latina chef Lorena Garcia, the diverse menu draws inspiration from classic dishes and will give guests the opportunity to explore the flavors of Latin American cuisine as one culture, with influences from Venezuela, Peru, Brazil, Mexico, and Argentina, among many more. Eater Las Vegas calls Chica “the most-anticipated Las Vegas restaurant set to debut in spring of 2017,” and it is open daily for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch. Multiple private dining areas will offer group space to enjoy a variety of events, from cocktail parties to large seated dinners.

Boasting the first Latina on the Las Vegas Strip, Chica promises to delight its diners with an astounding array of amazing dishes. There is no shortage of deliciousness to be found among Chef Garcia’s offerings, which create a delightful trail of flavors whose influences stretch from the tip of South America all the way to Las Vegas. Each and every bit of culturally unique food finds its pedigree equally in the homes of Peru or El Salvador as it does in the top restaurants of Mexico or Argentina. The home cooking that is enjoyed by the people of Central America and South America finds a home here in Chef Garcia’s kitchen, enhanced and made even more vibrant for Chica. Latin fusion cuisine is Chef Garcia’s forte, and it shows: appetizers, main courses, desserts, and even the drinks are specially crafted for their heritage and made to fit the modern, dynamic venue of Chica.

Delmonico Steakhouse is Chef Emeril Lagasse's take on the grand American steakhouse.
