First time to Vegas- best "non-tourist" restaurants?

Any cuisine, any price range. Just looking for great food in tinseltown. Thanks

  1. A Vegas rookie, huh? I am sure you will hear the name Rosemary's very often! It is a great place quite a ways off the strip though. Lotus of Siam is a Thai lovers dream. Those are my favorite off strip places.

    1. Are you going to have a car? If not, a plan on spending a lot on cabs or taking the bus. I recommend Rincon de Buenios Aires and Viva Mercados. Most, if not all, of the "non-tourist" restaurants are off the Strip.

      1. Todd's unique in Henderson; very good food reasonably priced, free corkage on Wednesdays!

        1. I second Todd's & Viva Mercados. Also Sen of Japan for fab japanese & sushi.

          1. Tinseltown is Hollywood.
