popular casino food in las vegas

Las Vegas offers food in every imaginable category.  From fancy French haute cuisine to burgers and hot dogs for kids, Las Vegas has it all.

A recent visit to the Aria Resort and Casino proved this to be true. Dining at the ARIA is “top notch.”  There are over 15 choices in both the casual dining and signature dining categories.  I was very impressed with the selection of restaurants inside the ARIA including Japanese, Spanish, Chinese, French, Thai, Italian, Mexican, American, a Steakhouse and The Buffet, serving breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner.

The following three are favorites of mine:
James Beard Award-Winning Chef Michael Mina’s BARDOT Brasserie is new and it is all the rage.  Think Paris brasseries with a champagne cart, classic French bread served in paper sleeves, escargots, foie gras, croque madame, steak frites and tarte tatin, to name only a few of the menu items. Mina's brasserie offers a polished central bar, upscale fare, a patio & a 1920s vibe. The atmosphere is lively and the mixologists at the bar gladly offer Parisian cocktails.

Julian Serrano Tapas offers Spanish food including Paella, Tapas, Beef and Seafood. Serrano’s food is an interpretation of his native Spanish fare and he accomplishes his goals. Be sure and arrive hungry, as the menu is quite large with lots of quality choices. Start with the tapas, of which there are many, but the hot shellfish tapas were my favorites. I picked from various portions of the menu and enjoyed the prawns or gambas a la plancha (cooked on a griddle) with a garlic oil lemon dressing; lobster gazpacho (served chilled); stuffed medjool dates with goat cheese, pancetta and tomato marmalade; and seared scallops with a romesco sauce. There are six paella offerings, from paellas with vegetables, ribs, seafood, or mixed foods to the traditional Valenciani.

FIVE50 Pizza Bar is a lively pizza spot by James Beard Award- Winning Chef and Restaurateur Shawn McClain. The name relates to the temperature of the wood-fired stone ovens and pizza is the name of the game here although there are other offerings such as small plates, salads, Italian sandwiches, a mozzarella bar, craft beer, floats, and shakes. I suggest beginning your meal with the FIVE50 chopped salad made with soppressata, provolone and garlic oregano vinaigrette. Other appetizers include garlic knots (rolls) with cheddar and garlic butter and mushroom arancini, risotto balls with a roasted tomato sauce.  Both are quite tasty. All this is a prelude to the signature pizzas, which are hand crafted with east coast flavors such as sausages, cheeses, and seafood, with a variety of sauces.

And although you will eat well in Las Vegas, many people come to gamble.  And there is, of course, plenty of that too.

Most casinos run the gambit of tables, cards and slot machines.  Of course some of us prefer to do our gaming online.
