Bask in the warm weather while enjoying an unforgettable meal! Several of the Strip’s best restaurants invite guests to dine on their picturesque patios.
HEXX KITCHEN + BAR AT PARIS LAS VEGAS
Sure to cast a spell on diners, this American restaurant serves up some of the tastiest fare on the Strip, 24 hours a day. Guests can sit on the 150-seat patio and watch the Fountains of Bellagio across the street while feasting upon such delicious items as the crispy Candied Bacon (available throughout the day) and the tender Short Rib (dinner only). Nothing disappoints, with the Roasted Tomato Bisque and the Tomato & Burrata easily being top contenders for the city’s best soup and bruschetta dishes. As Nevada’s first bean-to-bar chocolate maker, the dessert options are heavenly at HEXX. Guests can even sample some of the fine chocolate with a three-course chocolate and wine pairing. hexxlasvegas.com
VERANDA AT FOUR SEASONS HOTEL LAS VEGAS
Offering guests a respite from the Strip, this Italian restaurant is home to one of the city’s most tranquil patios. Situated poolside, guests can dine on the lushly landscaped, 109-seat terrace for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The dinner offerings are extraordinary, featuring a variety of handmade pastas, like chef Antonio Minichiello’s signature artichoke pasta cooked in a jar with scallops, calamari, shrimp, tomatoes, a seafood broth and sweet basil. The Beet Carpaccio salad—roasted sugar beets with ricotta, citrus rainbow carrots, candied hazelnuts and passion fruit vinaigrette—is another must, showcasing a variety of textures and flavors. The perfectly plated, cured Wagyu Beef Carpaccio is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. Find more info here.
