Fresh seafood in Las Vegas… sounds fishy, right? Only open since 2017, but making big statements on the plate. Bajamar Seafood & Tacos is for a stomach needing fresh seafood cooked right — like a spicy octopus taco. Locals and visitors rave about the chef’s Baja Mexican style cuisine. Be prepared for a smaller restaurant. If it’s busy, expect maybe a 10-15 minute wait for a table inside this California decor restaurant. High chairs at the counter with smaller tables for seating. Feels like a seaside meal in Vegas!

“Wow” is the first word that comes to mind when thinking about this destination. Therapy on East Fremont Street, right in front of an historic Vegas sign, has a speak-easy entrance to lead patrons into a 21st century masterpiece. A warehouse remodeled into a dynasty, Therapy is becoming known as a place to watch the big sports game. There are half-circled booths, tables (including another side for family dining), a bar with huge tv’s and an upstairs with even more seating. Imagine this: on techno taco Tuesday’s, the entire place turns into a concert venue! Pretty spectacular with how this sport bar and restaurant is set up. Even leading into the bathrooms, there’s amazing artwork to gaze upon. Don’t worry, the food and drinks are on point.

Straight from Sicily to Vegas: Pizzeria Monzú is more than bread, sauce, seasoning and cheese. This Italian restaurant on the West side of Vegas is so nice, they could host weddings inside. All tables are white clothed with black, wooden chairs surrounded by an atmosphere of southern Italy. The smells of fresh ingredients and sounds of freshly cracked wine bottles may cost a little more than usual, but well worth it. If falling in love with the decor didn’t happen, then wait until the food comes: instant love. Enjoy a nice lunch, brunch or dinner here as a “treat yourself” type of meal.

Gourmet fresh foods with a fresh casual feel. Buried on one of Vegas’ many strip malls, La Cantine brings the meats, the veggies, the Buddha Bowls, and so much more freshness to the table to fill an empty stomach. Known mostly for their sandwiches, at first glance the prices can seem a little steep; however, upon finishing the meal, it’s well worth the price. Inside lies a tiled wall, cafe vibe restaurant that has plenty of fun red chairs and wooden tables. This is a perfect spot for someone looking to grab a bite before a big night, or in the mood for a homemade sandwich.

All an adventurer has to do at the Oyster Bar at Palace Station, is choose a level of spiciness and watch the chef go to town. As one of the only seafood restaurants to be open around the clock in Las Vegas, this inviting dock boasts gumbo, pan roasts, chowders and of course oysters. A dive into the deep blue sea without having to get all wet in order to eat. It’s in a small, cornered off section of the casino that honestly a person can’t miss. Follow the smells of fresh seafood if it’s hard to find. Sitting in these red leather bar seats along with a granite countertop to feel high-end, the overhang of a stove oven creates a home kitchen yet casino-bar restaurant. Be prepared to spend $30-$40 dollars, maybe more here for a full experience, because handpicked wine is needed with this meal.
