Places to Eat During WSOP 2016
Every summer since the 70’s the World Series of Poker has been hitting Las Vegas, no doubt because of the city’s most famous attributes –its 24-hour casinos, world class hotels, and incredible entertainment options. However, did you know that Las Vegas has also become something of a foodie favourite? Here are our top five recommendations of places to eat when you finally manage to drag yourself away from the poker table…
1 – Guy Fieri’s el Burro Borracho
This new hangout from Guy Fieri is his second restaurant in Vegas, and it is conveniently located onsite, so you wont have to venture too far to satiate your hunger. Fill up on authentically prepared Mexican dishes, with the upscale touches you’ve come to expect from Fieri. We recommend the Crispy MahiMahi Juan Tacos, and his range of signature salsas are a must.
2 – All-American Bar and Grille
If you’re craving a taste of home, head to the Rio’s All-American Bar and Grille. Here you’ll find all your trusty favourites – Angus steak, platters of fresh seafood, burger, ribs, meatloaf – all cooked just the way you like it, on their open mesquite wood grille.
3 - Piero’s Italian Cuisine
If Casino is one of your favourite Las Vegas movies, then visiting Piero’s, where the film was shot, is an absolute must. This long-established Italian eatery has been pulling in big names over the last 30 years, ranging from US presidents to Frank Sinatra.
4 - Pizza Rock
Head Downtown to Pizza Rock, the passion project of chef, Tony Gemignani, for Vegas’ best pizza. All items on the menu are listed according to the type of oven they are cooked in, and the oven temperature. If you’re sharing with your poker comrades, we recommend one of the Romana varieties (700-degree electric brick oven), a long, thin pizza with up to three different sets of toppings.
5 - Yusho
For delicious meaty dishes and dumplings, washed down with draft cocktails – head to Yusho, for the best Asian street food style treats on the Strip. Their signature Logan Poser ramen is unparalleled, and complimented perfectly with a glass or two of one of their four Japanese craft ales.
