MESA Grill by Bobby Flay
He is well known for his southwest cooking and he is sharing his passion for it at Caesars Palace. The food is flavorful without being overly bearing.

You get the full menu and the prices are not that much more than lunch time.
CUT by Wolfgang Puck
This steakhouse should be called Twist but that name is already taken. The reason for the nickname is because Chef Puck has taken the steakhouse menu and twisted it into something really special. Now don’t be alarmed by this because he was cautious in his development of the menu. The ingredients are a bit more contemporary but still relatable. For those who are not a fan of the over-the-top gourmet dining will love this place. The atmosphere is relaxed and the food is well prepared.

Bacio by Carla Pellegrino
This Chef left the famous Rao’s family and took on her own kitchen at the newly remodeled Tropicana resort and casino. Her restaurant’s menu is Italian but made a little more affordable. The food is amazing the atmosphere too. It is not uncommon to see Carla at her restaurant planning for the dinner rush.
