Not only is today National Pizza Day, but Friday is also the start of Lunar New Year, and Sunday is Valentine’s Day—all major eating events. From heart-shaped pizza to black raviolis and naughty cookies, Las Vegas is celebrating in grand style.

Three Must-Try Heart-Shaped Pizzas

Three of Las Vegas’ most sought-after pizza spots are playing with hearts this month as they craft their dough into a most lovable shape. Siena Italian Trattoria & Deli tops theirs with smoked salmon, mozzarella and cream cheese, decked out in red caviar for $20. Esther’s Kitchen Downtown takes their classic pizza and puts a lot of love into its design for Valentine’s Day, and all the Metro Pizza locations in town are cranking out a sweetheart’s delight of a pie. 

Heart-Shaped Ravioli at Locale 

In addition to his own heart-shaped pizza, chef Marc Marrone is serving black heart lobster ravioli with sage and vanilla butter as part of Locale Italian Kitchen’s Valentine’s Day dinner. Reservations are open now for this special four-course menu, priced at $85 per person. The wine pairing is an additional $30.

The Ultimate Year of the Ox Feast

Commemorating the Johnnie Walker Blue signature bottle for Chinese New Year, Zuma Las Vegas is hosting a celebratory seasonal omakase experience by Chef Sergio Flores on Wednesday, Feb. 10, and Thursday, Feb. 11, at 7 p.m. The experience, beginning at $225 per person, includes a signature prix-fixe menu with Johnnie Walker Green and Blue label libations. Signature dishes include roasted lobster with shiso ponzu butter, spicy o toro with fresno chili and garlic ponzu, wagyu gyoza with black truffle and premium maki, sashimi and sushi selection, plus much more. Guests also receive a take-away bag with Zuma chocolate truffles and a surprise gift courtesy of Johnnie Walker. Tickets can be purchased here, and space is limited to the first 16 guests per night.

For Dessert 

For a sweet treat, Rooster Boy Café on the westside is offering its G- and X-rated cookies available to order until Wednesday, Feb. 10. They are sold by the dozen ($24), half-dozen ($12) or singles ($2.50 each).
