Las Vegas Spotlight - Channeling Your Inner Foodie

Eating with abandon in Las Vegas...


By Carly Milne

If it's been a while since you've visited, it might be time to take another look at Sin City - and all the great places to eat while you're there.

With so many great restaurants to choose from, it's hard to know where to begin. If you're a seafood lover, Eating in Las VegasEating in Las Vegasyour best bet is Sushi Roku located in the Forum Shops at Cesar's Palace. Starting your evening off with their Japanese Yellowtail Sashimi with Diced Chiles or Baked Cod in Sweet Miso will ensure you have a great time. And adding drinks like the Pama Shade or Pear Blossom will only make it better.

True carnivores can get their meat on right next door at Boa Steakhouse, with a variety of steak, lamb and chicken to appease even the pickiest eater. But those looking for what can only be described as a transcendent dining experience need look no further than Nove. While the view from the 53rd floor of the Fantasy Tower is breathtaking, it's the food that will leave you weak at the knees.

After whetting your whistle with a signature cocktail like the Nove Mojo or the Pink Pussycat, dig in to an order of Crostacei, a giant plate of shellfish so fresh, you'll wonder where they're hiding an ocean in the desert.

Another great option is the Salumi, featuring cured meats, olives, pecorino cheese and ciabatta. Pasta fans will love Sunday Gravy or the Pappardelle Bolognese, while meat eaters will flip for the bone-in ribeye served al forno style, with parmesan and garlic on top.

For a quieter environment with still-amazing food, try The Restaurant at The Platinum. While the Roasted Colorado Lamb Shoulder is to die for, you'll want to make sure you save room for the chocolate mousse, dusted with pop rocks. Sound odd? It is... and yet, it's delicious!

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
  • On The Best Naturist Resorts in Ontario, Dennis Wilson said "Love the freedom feeling going nude . 1st time ever was at freedom fields ranch near Tamworth On,Hector & Eyvon are super hosts ,hope to visit this summer but want to learn of more places to visit."
  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
