While the Strip is the main highlight of visitors to Las Vegas, since it offers something for everyone, there is an entire city beyond its lights. If you are looking for great restaurants off the Strip, then you won’t be disappointed because there are plenty of those available throughout the Las Vegas valley where you can treat yourself to good eats and drinks.
Lotus of Siam
Lotus of Siam is an award-winning restaurant that arguably offers the best Thai cuisine in the entire city. The spice-driven northern Thai cuisine of this restaurant will surely intrigue your taste buds. The eats here are closer to the notable tangy and sweet flavors of Bangkok Thai food. Vegetarian dishes, mouth-watering curries, barbecued prawns, crispy duck, and spicy sausages make Lotus of Siam the best Thai place to eat if you are anywhere near Las Vegas.
Aces and Ales
If you are looking for gourmet food that is heavy in flavor, then Aces and Ales is the place to go. They also offer a vast array of delicious booze that pairs well with their expansive food menu. Aces and Ales is one of those restaurants that prove to be equally exciting for each and every family member, from the youngest to the oldest. The restaurant has two locations in the city, one on the west side and another on the east side. They have 70+ craft beers on tap between them, along with a long menu of tequilas, whiskeys, scotches, and wines.
While eating clean in Vegas can sometimes be a challenge, DW Bistro offers a cuisine that is made with handpicked, fresh ingredients, whether you stop in for brunch or dinner. DW Bistro is a well-known restaurant for both new Mexican and Jamaican cuisine. From braised short ribs accompanied by bordelaise sauce to succulent jerk chicken, the menu is full of such delicious and amazing dishes. DW Bistro is definitely worth a visit if you are looking for a great restaurant off the Strip.
Cugino’s Italian Deli & Pizza
Cugino’s Italian Deli & Pizza is always ready to serve up authentic Italian meats (along with many vegetarian dishes). The food tastes so amazing, you can’t help but to put on a few extra pounds by devouring their pizza, pasta, sandwiches, and desserts. This restaurant feels like it could have been helicoptered out of New York City and dropped in Las Vegas. This is the place East Coasters either sneak to when no one is looking or show off on a weekend away.
Piero’s Italian Cuisine
Piero’s Italian Cuisine is the spot that gets passed on as a secret recommendation through generations of tourists, even though it is a renowned hot spot. Everyone from Justin Timberlake to Michael Jordan to Bill Clinton has had a meal here. This off-the-Strip Italian restaurant celebrates the kind of atmosphere that encourages evenings of laughs and story swapping. Where you are practically old friends with the server by the time you have finished your meal. Piero’s Italian Cuisine puts an old school flair in everything that goes into the experience. It must be working because the menu here hasn’t changed since its doors first opened in 1982.
