Eating Las Vegas 2020: The 52 Essential Restaurants


Eating Las Vegas is a dedicated guide to some of the best eateries in the U.S., written by the most widely recognized expert on the Vegas food scene, the inimitable John Curtas.

After considering―and eating at―hundreds of current contenders both inside and out of the city’s dozens of world-class resorts, John has assembled this exclusive guide to the “52 Essential” restaurants in Las Vegas.

And he doesn’t stop there. In addition to the top 52, this 2020 edition features sections on the burgeoning Chinatown district, the potentially best-in-the-country roster of steakhouses, French restaurants, burger joints, the batch of recently arrived chain restaurants, and John’s list of the city’s “Bottom 10.”

In addition, quick-reference lists highlight the best bets for buffets, Italian and pizza, Mexican, sushi, desserts, cheap eats, late-night dining, and more. As a bonus, topical essays include “The Job of a Restaurant Critic,” “The Glories of Dining Alone,” “Twenty Suggestions for Dining Out in Style,” and “The Future of Las Vegas Dining.”

Now in its eighth edition, Eating Las Vegas has become the premier source for Las Vegas dining information. With reviews ranging from some of the Strip’s most lavish dining rooms to hole-in-the-wall ethnic gems, this new and improved 2020 volume puts the city’s entire extraordinary dining experience in your hands.
