There’s a variety of options to get your caffeine fix as well as teas and smoothies to choose from. They have a plethora of yummy pastries, tarts, puddings, sausage rolls, and cakes to get your taste buds salivating. Best of all, you can take it to go and start your sight-seeing as you sip on your Café Mocha.

Foodie Spa Day

Many fruits, vegetables, and herbs are used to treat skin ailments in spa services. Not only can you eat your way to a healthier you, but you can use these foods on your skin in the form of facials, masks, body scrubs, and massages. Canyon Ranch is one of the best spas in Las Vegas and they always have spa services they rotate for the freshest ingredients to use in the seasonal treatments they offer. Given the time of year you can treat yourself with a Cherry Enzyme Facial or a Pear & Apple Soufflé Massage. Make sure to check out their seasonal services for the latest on their menu.

Brunch All Day

If you’re feeling like it’s a brunch kind of day (when isn’t it?), then head over to SUGARCANE for their globally-inspired menu. Start with their Fat Boy Hash, it has sunny side up eggs, bacon jam, a potato hash brown, and truffle hollandaise. Known for having some of the best brunch in Vegas, their delicious bottomless mimosas are a must, or for a healthier alternative pair it with one of their freshly-squeezed juice blends. Their Restaurant Row location near the convention area leads to the restaurant being busier, but as long as you arrive before noon, you shouldn’t have to wait more than a few minutes to be seated.

Nutrition Tips

Maybe you’ve been wondering if what you eat on a daily basis is providing you with all the nutrients you need. You’re in luck because at Canyon Ranch they have a registered dietician on staff that can provide a Lifetime Nutrition Consultation. They will assess your lifestyle and provide you with not only what to eat in Las Vegas, but best practices that you can take home with you. They’ll discuss things to keep in mind when traveling, maximizing your metabolism, multivitamins for multitasking lifestyles, healthy quick-fix options, as well as vegetarian, vegan, or gluten free needs. If you’ve been wanting make a change or just get some advice, this is a great opportunity to learn about fueling your body with what it needs so you can perform at your best.

Under the Sea

Las Vegas may be in the middle of a desert, but fresh seafood can and should be tasted at AquaKnox. For two years running they’ve earned the coveted Forbes Four-Star Restaurant seal of approval as one of the best restaurants in Las Vegas for seafood. We recommend starting with the Lobster Bisque and the Florida Pink Shrimp Ceviche as the perfect introduction to their amazing menu. For your main entrée you have to try the Maryland Blue Lump Crab-Stuffed Maine Lobster, it comes with wood-fire roasted asparagus, truffle oil, and clarified herb butter. It’s best to make a reservation, but if you arrive before 6:00 p.m. you’ll only wait 15-20 minutes.

Sushi & Sake 101

Fans of sushi rejoice – there’s no need to go hunting for a how-to video online when you can learn the art of making sushi from an expert at SUSHISAMBA. What truly puts this class in a league of its own is in the details. You will learn how to pick sushi-grade fish, the tools you need to have at home to make sushi on your own, and you get to eat what you roll. Not only do you get to learn the ins and outs of sushi preparation, but you’ll also learn about the different types of sake, how they’re produced, and you get to sample a variety of sakes to pair with your meal. Fantastic food and taking home the knowledge of how to recreate it on your own—it doesn’t get much better than that. It’s a unique Las Vegas experience that’ll keep you in homemade sushi for the rest of your life.

Steak Connoisseurs

It’s hard to beat the experience of a perfectly prepared steak, not only does Carnevino excel at it, but they specialize in curating the best cuts of meat they can find. All of their steaks are hormone and antibiotic free and dry-aged a minimum of 90 days. Yahoo and Men’s Journal named Carnevino the #1 steakhouse in the world so it stands to reason it would be the best steakhouse in Las Vegas. For the true steak lover, we’ll let you in on a secret – ask about their off-menu, extremely limited, riserva steak, which is dry-aged for 180-days. It’s an unreal melt in your mouth experience that you can only have at Carnevino. If you come any time between 5:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m you shouldn’t have to wait more than a few minutes for a table, but it’s always a good idea to make a reservation ahead of time.

Pub Grub

From piney and hoppy IPAs to full-bodied stouts, Public House has over 200 selections, including 24 beers on tap, and three seasonal cask beers. If you’re looking for a beer you can’t see through, try Sam Smiths Oatmeal Stout. The brewery does in fact use oatmeal in the brewing process, which creates an almost opaque, wonderfully silky and smooth texture with a hint of sweetness. Their beer cicerone, the equivalent of a wine sommelier, along with their knowledgeable staff can assist with any suggestions or questions about beer. For food, try their Poutine that comes with french fries, duck confit, cheese curds, & ‘Stout Gravy’, it’s the best on the Strip. They also have a great beer flight that comes with cookies that complement each brew. When you want to drink unique beer and savor hearty food, this is where to eat in Las Vegas.

Artisanal Ice

Yardbird Southern Table & Bar has some phenomenal specialty cocktails they’ve developed along with their hand-crafted ice. Realizing that the ice could be utilized for more than taking the edge off and smoothing out a drink, they created a variety of flavored and garnish ice cubes to add to select spirits to enhance the overall cocktail experience. That’s why we have to highlight The Porkchop. It’s an unbelievable mix of Duke bourbon, house-made Yardbird Dijon syrup, yuzu juice & apple cider, paired with a Dijon thyme ice cube. It’s a Las Vegas experience that has to be tasted to be appreciated.

Sweet Delight

The best way to end the day is by indulging in dessert. From gelato, cakes, tarts, chocolate—there’s so many wonderful sweets to choose from and every restaurant has their own approach to the perfect last course. You can find some of the best dessert in Las Vegas everywhere you turn, but for Latin-inspired sweets that are a must-try, head to Chica. As the first female Latina chef on the Strip, Lorena Garcia has outdone herself on designing delicious desserts. The award-winning Lemon Ricotta Donuts are served with wild berry compote and white chocolate dulce de leche. If you’re feeling chocolate, try the Venezuelan classic, Marquesa De Chocolate, made with rich chocolate mousse, espresso soaked graham crackers, and served with crema ice cream. There’s no rush, take your time and savor the layers of flavor in each bite.
