Many customers claim that Yui Edomae offers the best sushi in Las Vegas. Other customers claim that the traditional omotenashi service that is emphasized at the restaurant is what makes it most attractive.
Regardless, if you eat at Yui Edomae, you will definitely not leave hungry. They have a very simple food menu that consists of several large platters that customers can order. These are intended to be shared between multiple people, which is why they are so expensive.

If this approach to eating appeals to you, then we recommend making a reservation as soon as possible, as this restaurant can certainly get crowded during the peak nighttime hours.

Besides having one of the best names of any restaurant on this list, FukuBurger is notable for merging classic American burgers with Japanese cuisine.
The main restaurant is located in the Chinatown region of Las Vegas, though there is also a food truck that is nearby which offers many of the same food options.
FukuBurger features an award-winning menu that is also incredibly simple, making selecting a burger easier than ever.
Their classic Fukuburger is perhaps one of the most popular options on the menu. This delectable concoction features an all-beef patty, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, and onions. The real kicker is the drizzling of wasabi mayo and Fuku sauce which gives this treat a Japanese twist.

Many people choose FukuBurger to cater for a special event because their service is so fast without compromising on taste. This restaurant would be ideal for a late-night snack, as FukuBurger is open until 3 am on Friday and Saturday, and 1 am during the rest of the week.
In fact, FukuBurger’s garlic fries might be the best-drunk food option in Las Vegas. These are crispy fries topped with togarashi spice, a unique banana ketchup, and crack sauce. If you can limit yourself to only one serving of this addicting dish, then we truly applaud your self-control.

The food here is a modern take on classic French cuisine, though the real treat associated with this restaurant is the collection of art that guests can marvel at.

Indeed, the dress code is very upscale, as shorts, sports apparel, and open shoes are strictly prohibited.
If you think the interior of this restaurant feels cinematic, then your analysis is on point. Picasso was actually was a filming location for the 2001 film Ocean’s Eleven.
Guests can select food from two-course options as well as drinks from an extensive wine list. There is also a vegetarian menu if the copious seafood and meat options don’t appeal to you. Guests should also make sure to leave room for dessert, as the dessert menu has as many options on it as the dinner menu.
Many guests claim the banana French toast is to-die-for, as it features vanilla brioche with caramelized banana jam, passion fruit coffee syrup, and almond praline banana ice cream.
Picasso is certainly not ideal for someone on a budget, as a meal here could set you back well over $100. Yet, this price is warranted by the 1500 wines that customers can select from which stem from the finest European vineyards.
Many people use Picasso as a pre-theatre meal, capitalizing on the outdoor dining section that overlooks the fountains of Bellagio. Depending on the weather, cool misters or heat lamps can be provided outside for an incomparable experience. These kinds of luxuries are why Picasso is perennially considered not only one of the best restaurants in Las Vegas but one of the best in the world.
