1. SHAKE SHACK AT DOWNTOWN SUMMERLIN A Shackburger and Summerlin S’more concrete—there’s chocolate truffle cookie dough in it—is the official refuel at the Valley’s newest mall. 702-964-1025.

2. SIN CITY BREWING CO. AT MIRACLE MILE SHOPS The small-batch brewer’s original microbrew bar location is still serving strong inside the long and winding mall at Planet Hollywood. 702-732-1142.

3. LUKE’S LOBSTER AT FASHION SHOW Step out onto the Strip for a breath of fresh air and a bite of fresh seafood in lobster, crab or shrimp roll form, all stuffed into buttered toasty buns. 702-866-6602.

4. DOUBLE HELIX AT TOWN SQUARE Tasty small plates and a pet-friendly patio make this wine and whiskey lounge the perfect retail relaxer. 702-473-5415.

5. BORDER GRILL AT THE FORUM SHOPS When the labyrinthine Caesars megamall feels like a bit too much, chill out with some Peruvian ceviche and a blood orange-jalapeño margarita. Ahh. 702-854-6700.

  • Executive Chef Jainine Jaffer loves creating imaginative off-menu specials like paneer poutine and rooh afsza (rose syrup) tiramisu.

  • Berenjenas is one of the most distinct dishes at the restaurant—breaded golden baby eggplant served with chili-infused honey.

  • If you want to bring in the big-spending Asian clientele, you have to create an elegant experience and serve all the classics.
