Thanks to an ever-changing landscape, Las Vegas can be a tricky city to navigate, even for a local. I’ve lived here long enough to know that people either like it or they don’t. And as someone who has been on both sides of that spectrum, I think I’m a fair representative to prove that there are indeed many fine points to this bizarre wonderland in the desert, when you know where to look. I’m not a fan of cigarette smoke, loud machines, gambling or obnoxious people either. But thankfully, there is more to Vegas than that. Gambling on what’s hip and happening is not a solid bet because it changes every month.
Here are my favorite places and spaces in Sin City:
Valley of Fire
Bronze Cafe – healthy but amazing food including many vegan, vegetarian, or gluten free options.
Baguette Cafe – delicious French sandwiches, salads, soups and pastries
Settebello Pizza – our favorite Napoletano style pizza. The best in town, hands down.
Mundo – modern Mexican cuisine.
La Comida – fantastic margaritas and tacos.
Lindo and/or Bonito Michoacan – a local favorite Mexican.
El Dorado Cantina – Yummy Mexican food butted up against a strip club. What more can I say?? :O
