It’s my favorite time of the year! From June 6-17, Restaurant Week returns to Las Vegas for the 15th year, offering prix fixe menus that showcase the offerings of the amazing eateries all across the Las Vegas Valley and on the Strip. And although I can squeeze a dime ’til it squeaks, and am often loath to throw down cash on an unknown quantity, ponying up those dollars during Restaurant Week is easy, because the event benefits Three Square, a food bank that helps those in need.
Head to the Las Vegas Restaurant Week website, and under the tab labeled Restaurants, filter and sort by cuisine, location, meal type and donation amount. It’s an easy way to plan out your meals and maybe try a place that you might not have considered before. Some of the highlights from this year’s event include prix fixe menus from Bazaar Meat by José Andrés at Sahara Las Vegas, Amalfi at Caesars Palace, Carversteak at Resorts World and Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris. On Bazaar Meat’s menu, look for American wagyu from Texas and setas al ajillo, luscious mushroom caps with garlic and nasturtiums; Amalfi offers squid ink fettucine and a wonderfully fragrant bufala mozzarella on charred lemon leaves; Carversteak presents shrimp cocktail and Faroe Island salmon or filet mignon; and Eiffel Tower Restaurant serves up farm-raised chicken with foie gras and crème brûlée.
Not only can you choose from set menus from participating restaurants, you can also take advantage of special promotions from breweries, food trucks, coffee shops, bars and smaller venues, all donating to Three Square for each promotion sold. For instance, Able Baker Brewing Company has created a Restaurant Week flight and will donate $3 for each one sold. At Westgate Las Vegas, the team created a creamy “Dream to Feed All” cocktail, available at multiple venues, with a portion going to Three Square.
So get clicking. And eating. And drinking. I know I will be.
