With so many irresistible offerings on the table, your best meal in Vegas just might happen after midnight.
MGM Grand's Wolfgang Puck Bar and Grill prime New York steak sandwich with white cheddar and grilled onions.
Work up an appetite during a long night at Surrender or Tryst? Head to Allegro, where chef Enzo Febbraro has perfected an after-hours menu that’s served until 6 am each night (er, morning). Anchoring the spread are home-style Italian dishes like bruschetta with Burrata cream and calamari with sweet potatoes and spicy tomato sauce, as well as a hearty selection of pizzas. Wynn Las Vegas, 702-770- 2040
At this reimagined burger joint, chef Laurent Tourondel serves everything from fried pickles to chicken wings, but the real focus of the late-night menu, available until 2 am on weekdays and 4 am on weekends, is the expansive burger list. Order the Tex- Mex, a beast of a sandwich that comes dripping in chili, melted Jack cheese, and avocado, or go rogue with the lamb tandoori, veggie falafel, or salmon burger. Mirage, 702-792-7888
Just steps away from Hard Rock and the lights of the Strip, the family-owned restaurant and wine bar Ferraro’s recently debuted an all-new mezzanotte menu, served nightly from 11 pm to 2 am in the bar, lounge, and patio areas. Composed of small plates like beef carpaccio, stuffed peppers, and chicken parmigiana, it reads like a roundup of old-school Italian-American cuisine’s greatest hits. 4480 Paradise Road, 702-364-5300
The osso buco at Ferraro’s—a veal shank braised in a red wine reduction and served with farro—is on the mezzanotte menu for 25 percent less than during regular dinner hours
Grand Lux Café
Where else can you find empanadas and ahi ceviche on the same list as Cajun shrimp jambalaya and traditional beef Wellington? The massive menu at Venetian’s 24-hour Grand Lux Café covers every base (and corner of the globe), giving you endless opportunities to satisfy all manner of late-night longings. Venetian, 702-414-3888
The Peppermill Restaurant and Fireside Lounge is one of those off-the-beaten-path Vegas attractions that remains unclassifiable even 42 years after its founding. A nostalgia-heavy hideaway filled with fake plants and neon lights, the restaurant carries a full selection of hit-the-spot plates, like barbecue pork ribs and Southwestern-style beef kebabs, but your best bet may involve ordering from the beloved breakfast menu, offered 24 hours a day. 2985 S. Las Vegas Blvd., 702-735-4177
Vegas’s award-winning Japanese grill stays open until 3 am every day except Sunday, and it’s a favorite stop for off-duty chefs on their drives home from work. Head inside for glazed yellowtail, garlic Kobe beef, or one of the restaurant’s top-rated desserts, like the melting chocolate cake or green tea crème brûlée— all paired with a sake sampler, of course. 5030 W. Spring Mountain Road, Ste. 2, 702-367-3511
Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill
Don’t worry that a late night means missing your chance to eat at one of Wolfgang Puck’s world-famous Strip joints. His MGM Grand outpost rolls out a special menu from 11 pm to 6 am each day, and it more than lives up to the celebrity chef’s standards. Expect a range of gourmet light bites, including spicy tuna tartare with avocado and wild boar poutine, as well as pastas and wood-fired pizzas. MGM Grand, 702-891- 3000
