Where to Eat and Drink in Las Vegas
Both Peppermill Las Vegas and Piero’s Italian Cuisine were featured in the classic movie Casino, and it’s easy to understand why.
The bright pink and purple decor and the 64-ounce scorpions at Peppermill Las Vegas, which opened in 1972, make for festive evenings of drinking on the north end of the Strip. But this 24-hour color-splashed restaurant and lounge also works nicely for 9 p.m. breakfasts or 4 a.m. burgers. Whether you pair your meal with coffee or a screwdriver is completely up to you.
Piero’s Italian Cuisine, which first opened in 1982 and moved to its current location near the Las Vegas Convention Center five years later, is known for being a place where Sinatra would swing by for a bowl of pasta. It’s also famous for its osso buco. But whatever you order will surely be a classic; Piero’s has had the same menu throughout its existence. The current layout, with cozy booths and six separate dining rooms, gives dinner here an intimate feel.
For dining decadence in a Strip hotel, there’s the Sterling Brunch at Bally’s with its unlimited pours of Perrier-Jouët Champagne and as much caviar as you desire. This all-you-can-eat weekend extravaganza dates back four decades and was resurrected at the casino-resort’s BLT Steak in 2014. Head to the buffet line for Alaskan king crab legs, lobster tails, prime rib, and raw oysters. Or fortify yourself with a custom-made omelet and some over-the-top banana bread pudding French toast, before you indulge in the dessert bar’s chocolate-covered strawberries.
