At Locale, chef Marc Marrone draws upon recipes from his Italian family as well as years of experience on the Strip to create faithful renditions of Italian classics. Locals head to the Southwest neighborhood for the crisp fritto misto, freshly made pastas, and the hearty mains such as saltimbocca and pan-seared arctic char. The restaurant’s front patio is festooned with string lights along the perimeter and features umbrellas scattered between several small tables for convivial bistro-esque dining. Pro tip: Stop by on Tuesdays for a $99 special for two three-course meals centered around a hefty shared 36-ounce tomahawk ribeye.

Some restaurants transport diners from the flashing lights and crowded sidewalks of the Strip. Mizumi’s dining room is one such oasis, overlooking a lush lagoon fed by a 90-foot waterfall. The restaurant serves elegant Japanese fare such as thin slices of wagyu beef that diners can cook on a hot stone placed on the table, along with a selection of sushi, sashimi, and charcoal-grilled small plates. While there are many open-air tables facing the lagoon, the luckiest diners might snag the pagoda table — one of Vegas’s most coveted — located on a floating pavilion by the waterfall.

A trip to Las Vegas isn’t complete without seeing the Bellagio Water Show, and at PRIME, that view is accompanied by world-class steaks at the restaurant’s lakeside tables. Helmed by celebrity chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, this elegant Bellagio establishment serves a classic, well-executed steakhouse menu. While beef is the centerpiece here, the seafood section also shines, offering tins of golden Osetra caviar and chilled platters of Alaskan king crab. Note: patio and view seating is by request only and not guaranteed.

The sole restaurant located along the canal-front in The Venetian and The Palazzo delivers more than just waterfront views of the resort’s singing gondoliers. With a menu that reflects the rich culinary landscape of Mexico via executive chef Daniel Marquez’s travels, diners enjoy dishes such as guajillo chile-rubbed barbacoa, queso fundido, and ahi tuna with a pasilla Oaxaca chile cream sauce.

This cheekily-named gastropub is dedicated to what it calls, “an education in the art of food and beer,” with a focus on seasonal menus and produce sourced from the local farmers market. The Summerlin location’s extensive second-floor patio makes a great vantage point to enjoy specials like the PB&J burger, ahi tuna poke nachos, and elote-blackened shrimp pasta alongside cocktails like the Study Hall, made with bourbon, earl grey tea, and cinnamon.

Beer Park is a rooftop bar at the Paris Hotel & Casino that offers killer views of the Strip and a sky-high setting to watch the latest game, with a whopping 75 HDTVs stationed throughout the space.

Located on the ground level of the Fashion Show Mall, the broad, tree-shaded patio at El Segundo Sol sits under lights and star lanterns hanging from the trees above, creating a charming atmosphere to watch life unfold on Las Vegas Boulevard. Tacos and margaritas take center stage on the menu here, but don’t miss the elotes, where the corn is deeply charred and generously sprinkled with cotija cheese. Tequila aficionados take note: the restaurant offers more than 100 varieties. Don’t miss “loco hour,” aka happy hour, which runs daily from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm with drink and snack specials.

West of the Strip in Summerlin, the Tivoli Village shopping district has established itself as an outpost for good, independent restaurants — thanks in no small part to Echo & Rig. A hybrid butcher shop and restaurant, Echo & Rig eschews high price points and vague sourcing for an ingredients-first model: sausages are made in-house, beef is sourced straight from the ranch, and every steak is cooked over red oak. The outdoor tables feel miles away from the crowds, situated on a tiled terrace overlooking a plaza with a fountain.

Sitting on the tree-shaded tables at Americana, diners might forget they’re in the middle of the Mojave desert. While the lake the restaurant sits on might be man-made, it certainly feels natural; ducks glide by and curious fish occasionally break the surface. In addition to a European-influenced à la carte menu featuring dishes such as braised Colorado lamb shank, the prix fixe weekly harvest menu is a three-course seasonal offering that includes endless wine pairings.
