Great Places to Eat at @Pubcon Las Vegas 2012

SMS Text

I admit I watch the Food Network a lot. I am not sure why because the best thing I can cook is Hamburger Helper. I guess I am hoping that some of the knowledge and skills will somehow seep into my brain and suddenly I will cook better.

Anyway, I have seen some of the shows feature some interesting and unique restaurants in Las Vegas.  I thought I would share them with you in case you are looking for some interesting and great food when you are at Pubcon. I have never eaten at any of these places and cannot personally recommend them. I am just sharing the knowledge from great chefs that say these places offer fantastic and unique meals. 🙂

So just remember this post when you are, of course only slightly intoxicated, in Vegas and hungry. Be safe and I will see you there!

  • Great list Melissa. Nothing notable inside TI Hotel but Wynn is nearby and there’s good eats all around. I’d recommend Hash House a Go Go for anyone seeking massive portions. Also, Sushi Samba.

  • Melissa Fach

    Thanks Michael! Good to know!

  • I’d add Pampas Brazilian Grille to the list but uh, there won’t be any tables available. not, at least, during our #EpicDinnerVegas dinner, since we’re taking the entire main dining room. WHich means there may be tables available, in the smaller party room 🙂

    • Melissa Fach

      Good to know I will be eating there 😉

  • If you want to go to a Locals destination, I would go to “Tacos El Gordo”. It’s on the strip just one parking lot away from the Wynn Hotel. It’s the best tacos I have ever eaten hands down. At $2 a pop, you can’t beat it. They are a little bigger than your standard street tacos, so the $2 is well worth it.

    • Melissa Fach

      Thanks, Marvin! I will check out it, I love tacos!

  • My votes as a Vegas local:
    -Firefly (, just up Paradise from the Convention Center, has been serving up fantastic tapas for ages. Bacon-wrapped dates, stuffed mushrooms and patatas bravas with homemade sangria and a boisterous atmosphere make this place great after the show.
    -Second Michael’s Hash House recommendation
    -Simon at Palms Place is swank and relaxing without being uppity, and they have some great food too. Try the wok-charred edamame (served hot and totally tasty) and the crispy sesame rice.
    -For an exotic (not erotic!) full dinner with entertainment, try Marrakech ( Truly authentic food and live belly dancing. Fun and delicious.
    -Capo’s ( has Italian with a slight mob twist. Don’t forget to bring a light to read the menu, but the tortelloni is totally worth it.

    Drinking recommendation: Frankie’s Tiki Room ( Best place to get drunk for cheap. Drinks aren’t rock-bottom prices, but they’re heavy pours and totally worth it.

    Atmosphere recommendations: The Peppermill’s Fireside Lounge for kitsch, mirrors, a sunken firepit and old-school bartenders who know how to make a grasshopper or the Cosmopolitan’s Chandelier Bar for ultra-modern elegance, eye-popping people watching, and young, attractive servers.

      Wow Christina! That is a good list! I may be doing nothing in Vegas but eating 🙂

  • MGM Grand – wolfgang puck’s restaurant is awesome… also.. check out the korean bbq at Ginseng Korean BBQ II

  • We just got back from Vegas and really could not believe the amazing food options! We watch a lot of Top Chef and we did make it to Hubert Keller’s Burger Bar. Delicious! Best burger I have had in a while and the milk shakes were amazing! That’s over in Mandalay Place (at the end of the strip but so worth it!).
