5 restaurant suggestions for CES attendees with rental cars

Las Vegas is fairly easy to navigate with public transit, rideshare, and shuttles, but CES attendees who have access to rental cars have the option of exploring an even larger area. Here are five restaurants that are located in the suburbs.

Al Solito Posto

Al Solito Posto, from James Beard Award finalist James Trees, replaces a sign in a suburban mall with personality and verve. You’ll find that classics like Lasagna al Forno have extra touches like handmade pasta and herb riccotta, and dishes like fried Burrata Scarpetta and grilled octopus with roasted tomato and panzanella in pepper are things you probably won’t find anywhere else.

Tivoli Village, 702-463-6781 or alsolito.com

Tommy Bahama’s Marlin Bar is replacing the company’s full-service restaurant across the park with one designed with current sensibilities in mind. Guests order from the bar and are served at their tables, most of which are in an outdoor area with heating and cooling capabilities. The streamlined menu still features the world famous famous coconut shrimp with papaya and mango chutney, blackened shrimp with mango salsa, and plenty of tropical cocktails.

Town Square, 725-213-6887, tommybahama.com

The current closure – at least for now – of the Palms also meant the closure of award-winning chef James Beard’s eponymous restaurant, Marc Vetri, but fans can find their dish at the Red Rock Resort in Summerlin. It is equipped with a Josper charcoal oven that cooks dishes such as bone-in veal chop and Alaskan halibut cioppino, as well as handmade pasta such as almond tortellini with butter. white truffle and wood-fired pizzas.

Served is by Matthew Meyer, a young chef with big ideas and the energy to make them come true. In a mall across from Horizon Ridge Parkway, it’s much more visible than its previous location and serves a wider variety of food, including chef’s specialties such as bibimbap in a stone pot and Panang wild salmon curry. Brunch, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, features Meyer signatures like Benedict Corned Beef Minced on Marbled Rye Bread Pudding. There is also a series of guest chefs.
