LAS VEGAS – Where can you find New York City food without the New York City attitude? Only one place in the world: Vegas. Here are some of the best iconic New York City restaurants with locations in Sin City. (And no, none of them are located in the New York, New York Casino.)
Grab a Quick Lunch at ‘withcraft…Then Go Play Some Slots
The MGM Grand may be ginormous, but it’s worth walking almost all the way to the pool to stumble into this sandwich joint founded by Top Chef head judge Tom Colicchio. The sandwiches are pricey, but they are seriously good (warm and cold ones are available) and breakfast sandwiches are served all day.
Enjoy Dinner at Koi…While Overlooking the Bellagio Fountains
With locations in LA and NY, Koi is known for it’s swanky interior, celeb sightings, and sushi. Ask to be seated at the windows overlooking The Bellagio for a view of their famous water fountain show. Along with a seafood dish, be sure to try a Curious Cucumber martini. There’s a happy hour from 5 PM to 7 PM in a cool lounge overlooking the Planet Hollywood Casino.
Get Dessert at Serendipity 3…Without the Wait
Located outside of Ceasar’s Palace, the always-has-a-long-wait New York City legend is known for its Frrrozen Hot Chocolate. The best part is that the Vegas location has a grab-and-go line in addition to the restaurant. It will be the shortest amount of time you ever wait for a Frrrozen Hot Chocolate.
Order Late Night Food at the Carnegie Deli…Whenever You Feel Like It
The Mirage is home to a second location of the famed NYC deli. Get your matzoh ball soup at any hour of the day or night (it’s open 24 hours). Contrary to popular belief, it’s not always easy to find a good restaurant that’s open late in Vegas. And sometimes you need a sandwich at 5 AM, right?
