Fighting hunger has never been so delicious. From August 31 through September 6, more than 80 of the Valley’s best restaurants will serve prix fixe menus for Las Vegas Restaurant Week. The offerings, from the likes of Fleur de Lys and Yellowtail, range from $20 to $50, allowing diners to dig in at sharply discounted prices. And here’s the real sweetener: Proceeds go to local charity Three Square, which combats hunger in Southern Nevada. Three of the most enticing options:

Bradley Ogden, Caesars Palace ($50): Restaurant Week menus can seem bland, but Ogden’s has comforting choices like a twice-baked blue cheese soufflé and peanut-butter-and-jelly bread pudding.

Restaurant Charlie, Palazzo ($50): With entrees normally starting at $38, eating here for $50 is like buying a Mercedes for the price of a Honda.

Charlie Palmer Steak, Four Seasons ($50): This five-course family-style menu features an antipasti selection, prosciutto-wrapped fig salad and spiced blue crab—all before you even get to the entrées.

  • La Monja will be a Mexican-style raw bar, while Hatsumi will offer a more elegant experience, focused on traditional robata and irori grilling.

  • Head to the bar for executive chef Mark Andelbradt’s counter-only menu and prepare for a range of explosive flavors.
