The Cosmopolitan is one of the best casino-resorts in Las Vegas. It falls into the luxury resort category alongside The Venetian and Wynn Las Vegas. The experience at The Cosmopolitan is top notch all around. Dining is a prime example of this. In fact, this casino has one of the best restaurant collections in Las Vegas.
This is a luxury property and everything is priced accordingly. You won’t find many special discount deals at these restaurants. However, you will find excellent food in a variety of cuisines. While the Cosmopolitan is one of the smaller casinos in Las Vegas, there’s a restaurant with a meal for just about every mood.
The Cosmopolitan is a great property for a dinner meeting or date night. It’s one of my favorite meeting places on the Vegas Strip. Of course, my meetings typically start at the beautiful Chandelier Bar.
Let’s take a look at the different restaurants at the Cosmopolitan. Read the information all the way through and you’ll find one of the best fine dining deals in Las Vegas.
Beauty & Essex – This restaurant is hidden behind a pawn shop exterior. It offers unique sharing plates and new twists on classic cocktails in a speakeasy-like setting. Pro-Tip: The restaurant gets loud as the evening goes on. Make an early reservation if this bothers you.
Blue Ribbon – The former sushi restaurant has been reinvented as a modern American restaurant. Chefs and restaurateurs Eric and Bruce Bromberg offer a menu with a modern take on just about all kind of food. The New York Strip is one of the best non-steakhouse steaks I’ve had in awhile.
China Poblano – This is a unique dining concept from chef José Andrés. The restaurant combines the flavors of Mexico and China to create a unique restaurant experience. Yes, you can order dumplings and tacos with a twist from José Andrés.
é by José Andrés – This is among the finest dining in Las Vegas. The restaurant is tucked away in a small private room adjacent to Jaleo’s bar and paella grill and accessed through a glass door emblazoned with the letter é.
Eggslut – There is always a line for this egg sanwich stand. Eggslut isn’t cheap but the egg sandwiches are probably the best I’ve had in Las Vegas.
Estiatorio Milos – This fine-dining Mediterranean restaurant is best known for serving fresh seafood. The lunch menu offers one of the best deals you’ll find at a fine dining restaurant in Las Vegas. The 3-course meal is under $30.
The Henry – This is the Cosmopolitan’s version of the traditional casino cafe. There’s nothing fancy here but you can find the right food for any time of the day. Additionally, if you’re watching the games in the sportsbook, you can order some dishes from the cocktail waitresses.
Holsteins – Burgers, a wide selection of craft beer, and a list of signature alcohol-infused milkshakes. The “Gold Standard” is the best burger at the restaurant. The shakes are probably better without the shot of booze.
Jaleo – Authentic Spanish cuisine from the mind of José Andrés. This might be known as a sharable tapas restaurant but you can order many of the authentic dishes for yourself.
The Juice Standard – A cold-pressed juice bar.
Milk Bar – A bakery and ice cream stand.
Momofuku – This is a modern American-Asian restaurant. Momofuku is chef David Chang’s first Las Vegas restaurant. The innovative menu is definitely Asian but it has influences from around the world. There aren’t many restaurants like this in casinos on the Vegas Strip.
Overlook Grill – A simple poolside bar and grill.
Rose. Rabbit. Lie. – This is a modern supper club. They serve unique American classics along with live music and entertaining performances. Where else will you find caviar tacos in Las Vegas?
Scarpeta – This fine Italian dining restaurant from Scott Conant has been around since the Cosmopolitan has been open. I recommend anything on the menu that included the short rib.
Starbucks and Va Bene – Starbucks is located near the Vegas Strip entrance. Va Bene is the coffee shop near the Chelsea Tower hotel rooms.
STK – Las Vegas location of this modern steakhouse chain. Pro-Tip: The Happy Hour mini burgers are $10 and delicious. The restaurant is a bit more mellow at the bar before the steakhouse gets busy.
Wicked Spoon – The buffet is located on the second floor of the Chelsea Tower.
Zuma – This fine dining restaurant is a modern take on Japanese cuisine and sushi. Reviews have been great but this is one of the few restaurants at the Cosmopolitan that I haven’t been to.
