Eating Las Vegas 2020
The 52 Essential Restaurants
In this digital world, few restaurant guidebooks remain, but Las Vegas is lucky. Eating Las Vegas is not only a dedicated guide to some of the best eateries in the U.S., it’s written by the most widely recognized expert on the Vegas food scene, the inimitable John Curtas.
After considering―and eating at―hundreds of current contenders both inside and out of the city’s dozens of world-class resorts, John has assembled this exclusive guide to the “52 Essential” restaurants in Las Vegas.
And he doesn’t stop there. In addition to the top 52, this 2020 edition features sections on the burgeoning Chinatown district, the potentially best-in-the-country roster of steakhouses, French restaurants, burger joints, the batch of recently arrived chain restaurants, and John’s list of the city’s “Bottom 10.”
In addition, quick-reference lists highlight the best bets for buffets, Italian and pizza, Mexican, sushi, desserts, cheap eats, late-night dining, and more. As a bonus, topical essays include “The Job of a Restaurant Critic,” “The Glories of Dining Alone,” “Twenty Suggestions for Dining Out in Style,” and “The Future of Las Vegas Dining. 236 pages
