The Venetian and The Palazzo Restaurants Named Among Las Vegas’ Essential 50

The Venetian Resort-Hotel-Casino and The Palazzo Las Vegas are proud to announce five of their acclaimed restaurants have been regaled as some of the most essential, according to Las Vegas’ newest dining guide.

Local dining critics John Curtas (KNPR and KLAS), Max Jacobson (Seven magazine) and Al Mancini (Citylife) released their much-anticipated book, Eating Las Vegas: The 50 Essential Restaurants on November 15, 2010, finally revealing which of Vegas’ many acclaimed eateries made the list.

The only steakhouse in the top ten is CUT by Wolfgang Puck at The Palazzo, which all three writers praise for its modern, innovative takes on contemporary steakhouse fare. The bone marrow flan, veal tongue with marinated artichokes and Kobe/Wagyu beef tasting are just some of the dishes that helped CUT make the grade.

Mario Batali’s restaurants, Carnevino and B&B Ristorante, both made the list, with Max Jacobson calling B&B “the best Italian restaurant in Vegas,” and all three raving that Carnevino has THE best steak in town.

Thomas Keller garners accolades as the best French Bistro in town for Bouchon, while Piero Selvaggio and Luciano Pellegrini of Valentino, win high praise for elevating the level of Italian dining in Las Vegas.
