Cured & Whey
Cured & Whey is home to some of the best charcuterie Las Vegas has to offer! Located just off S Valley View Blvd, this meat and cheese supplier-meets-restaurant has more than 200 different cheeses and 60 different meats from around the world. While visiting Cured & Whey, let the friendly staff curate a charcuterie board that caters to your unique tastes, or choose from a variety of hot and cold sandwiches like Truffle Honey Grilled Cheese, Duck Reuben, or Mortalian.
Where should you go for date night in Las Vegas? Make a reservation at Partage. This hidden gem is a French restaurant that serves gourmet dishes in a modern yet elegant space tucked away in Chinatown. Partage offers monthly rotating five-course, seven-course, and nine-course tasting menus. In addition, they have an incredible selection of French wines and an exclusive wine club that you can join to learn more about winemaking and even get discounts on bottles.
Cubanidad has two locations in the Las Vegas metro: one in Summerlin and one in Henderson. For those looking for a good takeout option for lunch or dinner, Cubanidad Express in Summerlin is the place to go! Founded by Chef Dennis Martinez Miranda, this restaurant brings small-town Cuban cuisine to Sin City. If you’re not sure what to get from the menu, you can’t go wrong with the flaky Empanadas, savory Cuban Nachos, or sandwiches like The 305 or Medianoche.
Experience Chef Gina Marinelli’s take on coastal Italian cuisine at La Strega. Upon entering this cozy hidden gem, you’ll be greeted by a light, airy interior and friendly service from its staff. La Strega has frequently been recognized as one of the best Italian restaurants in Vegas—and it’s no surprise why! With carefully-crafted menu items like the Swordfish Milanese, Grilled Spanish Branzino, or Orecchiette, it’s a dining experience that will absolutely leave you satisfied.
