We found a new favorite - I was shocked that we loved it so much!!!


LVB Burgers and Bar

 from LVB Burgers and Bar at The Mirage in Las Vegas
We were starving when we got off the plane in Vegas, so we decided to grab a quick bite in the hotel.
LVB Burgers and Bar recently opened, so we decided to give it a try.

We started with the Loaded Potato Bites.
Bacon, cheddar, chives, sour cream

They were surprisingly good!

L.V.B. (LAS VEGAS BOULEVARD BURGER) American cheese, caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato, pickles, boulevard sauce - from LVB Burgers and Bar at The Mirage in Las Vegas

Buddy V's Ristorante
Aunt Nina's Mozzarella en Carozza - Jersey City style fried mozzarella, crostini, tomato ragu, genovese pesto - at Buddy V's Ristorante at the Palazzo in Las Vegas
Buddy V's is located in The Palazzo. We've eaten dessert here, but we've never had a meal here.
The reviews were good on Yelp, so we decided to give it a try for lunch.

We started with Aunt Nina's Mozzarella en Carozza - Jersey City style fried mozzarella, crostini, tomato ragu, genovese pesto.

Basically, a yummy fried pesto and mozzarella cheese sandwich served with marinara.
YUM!

Grandma's Meatballs from Buddy V's Ristorante at The Palazzo in Las Vegas
For our entrees we shared an order of Grandma's Meatballs.
SO good!

Bucatini Carbonara with Italian Sausage from Buddy V's Ristorante at The Palazzo in Las Vegas
We also shared the Bucatini Carbonara. 
At the waitresses suggestion, we added Italian sausage.
O-M-G!
This was the best thing we ate in Vegas. 
I wanted to lick the bowl. It was that good!! 
Next time, I am ordering my own bowl and NOT sharing with Chicken Legs! ;)

I bought Buddy's cookbook so I could get the recipe. I will be making this in the next few weeks.
It is seriously my favorite. GET THIS if you go to Vegas!

Sprinkle Cooke from Carlo's Bakery (The Cake Boss) at The Palazzo in Las Vegas - get there early! The line gets LONG!
We couldn't go to The Cake Boss' place and not try dessert.

Carlo's Bakery is right across from the restaurant.
GO EARLY! The line gets insane later in the day.

We got a few cookies - the sprinkle. YUM!

M&M Cooke from Carlo's Bakery (The Cake Boss) at The Palazzo in Las Vegas - get there early! The line gets LONG!
This M&M cookie was my FAVORITE!
Ooey, gooey, buttery and AMAZING.
I will be getting a few of these to take home next time.
LOVE!

Lisa's Warm Nutella Cake with Salted Caramel Ice Cream and Hazelnut Praline Crunch at The Palazzo in Las Vegas - THE BEST DESSERT I've ever eaten!
We wanted to try a dessert from Buddy V's Ristorante.
We went back one afternoon for this Warm Nutella Cake.
This was the best dessert we've ever eaten!
The chocolate sauce, salted caramel ice cream, hazelnut praline crunch and all that warm Nutella.
This dessert is a MUST in Vegas!

Buddy V's was surprisingly good. 
I wasn't sure a reality TV star's place would be good, but Buddy V's proved me wrong. 
It wasn't good, it was GREAT.
We already have plans to eat here on our next trip this Fall.
It is a new favorite that is on our must eat list when in Vegas.

Neon Museum
Neon Museum in Las Vegas - must do the night tour!
I've always wanted to go to the Neon Museum, and we finally made the trip!
It was SO much fun! We did the night tour, so the signs were lit up. 

Neon Museum in Las Vegas - must do the night tour!
Only a few of the signs have been restored and light up.
The rest of the signs have colored lights shining on them.

Neon Museum in Las Vegas - must do the night tour!
The guided tour lasts about an hour. They share tons of history of Vegas and the signs.
I highly recommend the tour.
Make sure to book a tour early - they sell out fast.
There are also limited night tours. 

The museum is located at the far north end of Las Vegas Boulevard.
We took Uber and it was only about $10.
We used Uber the whole time we were in Vegas. Uber can even pick you up at the airport.
It is SOOOOO much better than a cab. The cabs can be sketchy in Vegas.

If you want to try Uber for FREE, use code 'stephaniep4896ue'

Prosciutto and Mozzarella appetizer. There were three types of prosciutto - sweet, smoky and salty. The mozzarella is made in-house. It was warm when they brought it to the table.

Carbone is my favorite place for dinner in Las Vegas.
I absolutely LOVE it.

Table side Bananas Foster from Carbone at The Aria in Las Vegas

SO good! Save room for dessert.

Perfect ending to our trip!!!

We already have our next trip to Vegas booked. 
We will definitely be eating at Buddy V's and Carbone.
We have reservations at Golden Steer Steakhouse - it was Sinatra's favorite place. This was a recommendation from our Uber driver.
We are also going to try and eat at Heritage Steak in The Mirage.

Where is your favorite place to eat in Vegas?
What should me check out on our trip this Fall?

  2. My favorite place to eat in Las Vegas is my own kitchen. No reservations needed, no waiting line, no tips necessary but you can Kiss the Cook!

  3. Buca di Beppo in Excalibur had such yummy cheese ravioli! Also, we did the Tournament of Kings dinner show, that was fun :) Eating a Cornish hen with your hands...Huzzah!!

  4. Both my husband and I love Las Vegas and we are there several times per year. I am lucky in that my best friend lives in Las Vegas so whenever we need a girls weekend - away we go! There are so many great restaurants on the Vegas Strip that it would be difficult to have a bad meal. However, one of the places we love to go to is Vintner Grill! ( http://vglasvegas.com) I have been a guest at events, lunches, and dinners there as well as hosted parties for friends and corporate events and they are always top notch. Fantastic food, amazing staff, wonderful wine & cocktails - you can't go wrong. If you are ever interested in leaving the strip I would highly recommend this place. A short Uber or cab ride to Summerlin and amazing food along with a fantastic patio for dining alfresco. Definitely worth the trip. :)

  6. Thanks for all of the great advice on where and what to eat in Las Vegas. I know a lot of people trust Yelp and I noticed you did for one of the restaurants, but I've found that many reviews on Yelp are not to be trusted and sometimes seem to be written by people with anger issues and as we all know...many things are written under the veil of anonymity. I prefer to read blogs like yours that provide good pictures and honest reviews or listen to the advice of friends who know me and my likes and have been to the particular places. I file all of your blog reviews in folders for future reference. Thanks for such a nice post. It's already filed!

    1. Yelp is a good guide, but you definitely need to take some of those reviews with a grain of salt!

  7. I absolute love your blogs about the restaurants you go to with your recommendations and also the websites so you can check out the menus. Thanks so much for doing this - so helpful.

  8. Stephanie - your food and drink recommendations are amazing! I always save them. Would you mind doing a post on where you stay and other things you might recommend (shows, shopping, etc)?
