Top Dining Picks
Sage is hands-down my favorite room to dine in. Reminiscent of a 1930′s Hollywood super club, it is dark and dramatic with a hint of modern elegance. Chef Shawn McClain takes advantage of Farm to Table produce, sustainable seafood and artisanal meats, and creates some of the most extraordinary meals you will ever taste. Boutique-style cocktails mixed for you at the bar, or request table side service to engage in the art of sipping Absynthe. RSMLV Tip: Keep this place sacred. Leave the kids at home and enjoy the night with your Significant Other. There is not much on the menu they will appreciate anyway.
Jean-Georges Steak House is chic and handsome. You may know this chef from his other critically acclaimed restaurant, Prime, at the Bellagio. Specialty items include their bone-in aged meats and Soy-glazed Short Ribs. Not to miss dishes- the Chilled Seafood Platter and the Burratta Mozerella salad, and just don’t share the Black Truffle Mashed Potatoes. Seriously, you can try, but you want to. RSMLV Tip: Don’t skip this meal because you have the little entourage with you. Book your reservation between 5-6pm, order for them off the sides and appetizers portion of the menu, and give them a few bites of your steak. You’ll be glad you did.
American Fish by Michael Mina offers a relaxed, yet contemporary dining scene for those who love seafood. My favorite dining experience there starts with a Moscow Mule from the prohibition style cocktail menu, followed by Shrimp & Grits, and whatever the special is because it is usually amazing. American Fish is also a great place to go if you just want small plates without the formalities of sitting down to a meal. The bar menu offers plenty to choose from to keep hunger at bay, and not put you into a food coma for the evening. RSMLV Tip: This is probably one of the more family-friendly restaurants at Aria, and you will see children there after 7pm. Consider ordering for the little guys off the bar menu. Their specialty fish and chips is big a hit with the kids.
BarMasa may be one of the more expensive sushi spots on the Strip, but is well worth it for the fresh sashimi and Victoria beef sotomaki with black trumpet mushroom rolls. Though a bit on the pricey side, the atmosphere is pretty casual chic. Bring the kids for edamame, miso and rice with mochi for dessert, and ask for a table at the back of the room so they can watch the Aria Express ride back and forth all night. RSMLV Tip: Make sure to try the Wasabi-tini…no one else does it better than Bar Masa in Las Vegas.
Jean Philipe Patisserie is full of decadent French pastries, gelato, chocolates and more. A great place to grab and go for breakfast, quick lunch or after eating at one of the fabulous restaurants, grab a coffee and dessert. Crepes are made to order, and there is a wild display of cakes and custom designed chocolates that are sure to keep you wondering, “is it ALL made out of chocolate?”. My favorite sandwich is the chicken pesto on the baguette. RSMLV Tip: If you are planning on grabbing breakfast, keep in mind the lines can be quite long. Breakfast sandwiches go fast!
Aria Las Vegas also has two great Asian options with Thai favorite, Lemongrass, and traditional Chinese at Blossom. Sirio offers a solid selection of Italian dishes, also in a family friendly environment. You can find Spanish tapas style small plates at Julian Serano, though would probably stick to the tween and teens set vs. bringing the little guys there. For super family friendly, there is always The Buffet, and coffee shop, Cafe Vettro. Don’t forget the Skybox Sports Bar and Grill. Burgers, fries, dogs, salads…perfection for family friendly food and environment!
