People go to casinos to enjoy themselves and to try and win a bit of money, but food is now becoming an integral part of the casino experience due to the fact that fantastic chefs are opening up quality restaurants inside some of the world’s best casinos. Below we will take a look at the best casino restaurants.
Bellagio, Las Vegas
This restaurant overlooks the beautiful Bellagio fountain and when you walk in you will see real paintings by Picasso hanging on the walls. The owner of this restaurant is Chef Julian Serrano and he gets his inspiration for cooking from France and Spain, particularly the regions where Picasso used to live. His pan-seared scallops and potato mousseline are absolutely divine.
The Cosmopolitan, Las Vegas
Have you ever had Mexican cuisine and Chinese cuisine at the same time? We bet you are about to tell us that the two do not mix, but José Andrés, the owner of Jaleo, definitely begs to differ. At his restaurant he fuses the two different cultures and comes up with great tasting food such as Asian duck tacos. Don’t worry though, if you don’t want to try a mixture of cultures, you can order some delicious traditional Spanish food such as paella and tapas.
Monte Carlo Resort, Monaco
This resort is home to thirty-three restaurants and bars, but the Le Louis XV-Alain Ducasse restaurant is at the top of the food chain, quite literally. If you love your Mediterranean dishes, then you are in for a right treat here. We would highly recommend the sea bass with roasted artichokes or the lamb seasoned using Espelette peppers. Furthermore, if you love wine, you will have plenty to choose from as their wine cellar holds around 400,000 bottles.
Jean Georges Vongerichten is in charge of the Café Martinique and he ensures that nothing but delicious retro dishes leave the kitchen. Their coq au vin and lobster thermidor are some of their most popular dishes. They also have more than thirty different champagnes that you can choose from. Here is a bit of trivia for you – in the 1960s, Café Martinique made an appearance in the James Bond movie Thunderball.
Condado Plaza Hotel and Casino, Puerto Rico
Wil Benet is the proud owner of the Star Puerto Rican restaurant. Here he combines everything he knows about Puerto Rican ingredients (which just so happens to be a lot) with Chinese, Arab, Thai, Japanese, Spanish, and Italian influences. If you eat here, you will have a food experience that you will not forget in a hurry.
Harrah’s, New Orleans
John Besh is in charge of Besh Steak and it is safe to say that you won’t get better steak anywhere else in New Orleans. Once you have feasted on some of the best beef that you have ever tasted, you can choose from a range of delicious dessert. We would recommend that you try the Père Roux’s Cake – it has sautéed bananas, dark rum, and cinnamon rammed in between two layers of sponge and topped with tasty frosting.
Caesars Palace, Las Vegas
There are many dining options at Caesars Palace, but Restaurant Guy Savoy is the best without a doubt. This restaurant is owned by French chef Michel Richard, who just so happens to be the owner of not one, but three Michelin stars. Here you can try the world’s best lobster burger and some of the best ribs that you have ever tasted.
