Las Vegas Dining Minus the Strip
Looking for a night out in Las Vegas without all the hustle and bustle of the Strip? Summerlin may be the perfect spot for you…
Start off by driving west, away from the lights and chaos of the Las Vegas Strip and find your way into Summerlin, Nevada. Las Vegas proper will always draw high rollers to its restaurants, but Summerlin more than holds its own.

Among the best is Vinter Grill (vglasvegas.com), a compellingly designed bistro featuring American dished infused with flavors from Spain, France and Italy that diners can also enjoy on a beautifully appointed patio featuring two illuminated cabanas. Another winner is Nittaya’s Secret Kitchen (nittayassecretkitchen.com), an absolute shrine to authentic Thai food, and Marché Bacchus (marchebacchus.com), a bistro and wine shop where swans drift by as you dine along Lake Jacqueline.
Our Other Favorite Summerlin Hot Spots
“An homage to all things grilled, roasted, shucked, and seared” Andiron Steak and Sea (andironsteak.com) was inspired by high-end dining establishments in the Hamptons. If you’re in the mood for surf and turf, this is a can’t miss spot. Try the Caramelized Scallops and pair them with their signature Cowboy Ribeye.
Looking for a south-of-the-border flair? Casa Del Matador (matadorrestaurants.com/mexican-food-las-vegas) offers over 150 kinds of tequila and entertains one of the best happy hours in all of Summerlin. $6 margaritas and $1.50 street tacos roll out of the kitchen all night to pair with your tequila flights. Matador is 21+ after 10:00pm, so bring the family early or get a sitter for the kids for late-night!
Sweet tooth? Try CREAM (creamnation.com) which offers over ten types of freshly baked cookies and over twenty flavors of ice cream for your mix-and-match pleasure. If you find yourself needing something richer, Gelato Messina (gelatomessina.com) which boasts 35 year-long flavors of homemade gelato and adds up to five new flavors per week!
