Did you know that Gold, Platinum and NOIR MGM Rewards members get priority reservations at the best restaurants in Las Vegas, thanks to new benefits of the MGM Rewards program? Las Vegas is known for many things, but perhaps best of all it’s known for being an oasis of incredible food, with dining experiences people travel across the globe for. From Michelin-rated establishments with the hottest food trends, to international pop ups and out-of-this-world culinary adventures, Vegas is the ultimate foodie haven. 

The best restaurants in Las Vegas can be found at MGM Hotels and Resorts, including Aria, Bellagio and Park MGM. 

Since it arrived on the strip, Aria has become a must-visit destination for some of the best cuisine in Las Vegas. Diners can treat themselves to epic renditions of Asian-influenced sushi, seafood and steak at CATCH, or premium steaks from world-renowned Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s at Jean-Georges Steakhouse. Julian Serrano Tapas tantalizes guests’ palettes with delectable interpretations of his native Spanish fare, and at Carbone, they’re treated to timeless Italian cuisine that pays homage to the Italian-American restaurants of the mid-20th century, with culinary cues from great talents and techniques of today. Aria is also the place to find Southern California favorites Javier’s — known for their exquisite Mexican fair — and the noodle and dumpling master Din Tai Fung.

Bellagio’s expansive grounds feature almost too many exquisite restaurant options to choose from, from Wolfgang Puck’s Spago to PRIME Steakhouse. Michael Mina’s namesake restaurant focuses on a refined coastal cuisine, and Michelin-decorated chef Julian Serrano’s LAGO features bold Italian flavors. Diners can enjoy a delectable meal overlooking the famous Bellagio fountains at the Mayfair Supper Club or enjoy a 5-star meal at Picasso, where the artist’s renowned paintings and ceramic pieces grace the walls.

At Park MGM, you can enjoy French fine-dining at Bavette’s Steakhouse & Bar. Journey to Central Italy at Toscana Ristorante & Bar, a sit-down dining concept created by the world-famous Eataly Italian marketplace which makes its home inside Park MGM. Soar to new heights at the ultra-trendy NoMad Library or enjoy an intimate show that you’ll have to see to believe at The NoMad Bar. Grab a drink and make some money at BetMGM Sportsbook & Bar. Get the comfort you need and tuck into Side Betty Grill. Enjoy Eataly Las Vegas’s seasonal selection of pizza and pasta at La Pizza e La Pasta. Taste incredible street food at La La Noodle, Park MGM’s noodle shop serving Pan-Asian cuisine. Evoke a garden party with brunch and bubbles at Primrose and experience one-of-a-kind gourmet fried chicken at The Crack Shack

One of Las Vegas’ most exciting restaurants calls Park MGM home, as celebrated chef Roy Choi invites foodies to Best Friend, a Korean BBQ concept. For those that value remarkable dining experiences, Best Friend is top of the list for best restaurants in Las Vegas. 

“Best Friend is a remixed and remastered collection of the evolution of our Los Angeles – its food, its music, its culture. It is the only place to sink your teeth into all the flavors from Kogi-to-Commissary and everything in between, along with fresh new ideas I’ve been cooking up for years. It’s Koreatown in a capsule – a portal to the streets of LA, but also rooted in what makes Las Vegas… VEGAS. Hip-hop-to-bibimbop. Kimchi-to-spaghetti. BBQ and late-night food. My neighborhood mixed with the Vegas good-good. I want Best Friend to energize the minds of people looking to experience the best in life. Whether they are from Hollywood or Hong Kong, D.C. or Down Under, I hope all guests are licking their fingers with their mouths full saying ‘holy sh!t’ as they reach across the table for another bite. LA food in Las Vegas. Los Vegas. Best Friend. Forever.” – Roy Choi.
