Restaurant Week is certainly one of the best times to splurge on the Strip, to take advantage of often heavily discounted three-course menus at some of the fanciest, most delicious and most expensive restaurants in the country. But as locals (and a lot of tourists) already know, Las Vegas’ restaurant greatness is not limited to Las Vegas Boulevard. Given that proceeds from your Restaurant Week meals will help feed thousands of food-insecure Las Vegans, the 12-day period starting on June 19 provides a full-circle feeling if you decide to explore one of those great local restaurants you’ve been hearing so much about.
In Summerlin, check out Andiron Steak & Sea, a restaurant that looks and feels like it could live on the Strip. It offers lunch ($30) and dinner ($50) menus for Restaurant Week highlighted by fresh, flavorful fare like roasted carrot soup with madras curry, garganelli with asparagus and peas, and serrano ham-crusted salmon.
On the other side of town, Green Valley Ranch Resort’s Bottiglia Cucina & Enoteca is doing dinner ($50) starring your choice of pappardelle Bolognese or a tweaked version of chicken parm with San Marzano tomato sauce and pecorino picante for an extra kick. Tiramisu or chocolate caprese cake for dessert ... tough choice.
Also in the southeast, Anthem-adjacent gastrolounge Standard & Pour will serve up a four-course dinner ($50) starting with its addictive deviled eggs with sriracha and roe. After that, we’ve got our eyes on the green Caesar, the spinach-and-ricotta stuffed shells and the Chocolate Kiss dessert.
