Transcript:Best Seafood Restaurants in Las Vegas
You might not think of the desert when you think of great seafood, but in Las Vegas you can find the very best. You'll forget you're hundreds of miles from the ocean.
Here are a few of my favorites.
Las Vegas Seafood: American Fish at the Aria
First, American Fish at the Aria. Created by Chef Michael Mina, this restaurant brings America's Great Lakes, rivers and coasts to Las Vegas, and it's not only beautiful, it serves some of the best fresh and saltwater fish anywhere. You can choose from four different preparations: poached, cast iron griddled, baked in a sea salt crust or wood grilled and smoked.
Here are a few of my favorite menu choices: poached halibut, griddled cornmeal crusted rainbow trout, baked blue prawns and a wood grilled 2 pound lobster. The average dinner price is around $35.
Las Vegas Seafood: RM Seafood at Mandalay Bay
Next RM Seafood at Mandalay Bay. Created by Chef Rick Moonen, RM Seafood is a "State-of-the-Art Sustainable Seafood" restaurant. It offers two dining options – first, Downstairs is a full casual dining menu featuring sushi and a raw bar. And second, Upstairs which features a more intimate dining experience featuring a multi-course Chef's Tasting Menu.
Here are some of my favorites from their menu: From the Downstairs menu, Alaskan king crab and Arctic char. From the Upstairs menu, you can't beat the 7 course tasting dinner and the a la carte wild Panamanian cobia. The average dinner price starts at about $35.
Las Vegas Seafood: Emeril's Fish House at the MGM Grand
Finally, you have to visit the MGM Grand and Emeril's Fish House. Created by the great Emeril Lagasse, this restaurant serves market-fresh fish and shellfish with a New Orleans twist. This restaurant features a seafood bar, where guests can watch their shellfish being prepared.
Here are my favorites from the extensive menu: Emeril's New Orleans barbeque shrimp, pan-roasted black bass, green lip mussels and pasta and Louisiana-style shrimp etouffee. The average dinner price starts at around $38.
And those were some of the best seafood restaurants in Las Vegas.
