Where to eat and drink around Las Vegas this week

By Melinda Sheckells

(Editor’s Note: Tasty Tuesday airs on KTNV Channel 13 on Tuesdays at 11:20 a.m.)

Explore Las Vegas Restaurant Week offerings at the new Virgin Hotels Las Vegas.

This week, everyday is “Tasty” thanks to Three Square’s annual Restaurant Week, which features 120 Las Vegas restaurants where you can dine and support the fight against hunger in our community. Try these Restaurant Week menus that range in price from $20 to $80—now through June 18.


Now in its 14th year, the annual 12-day event, held every spring, encourages people to dine out for a good meal, a good value and a good cause. Las Vegas restaurants offer three-course prix fixe menus, donating a small portion of proceeds to Three Square Food Bank. By dining out, you are helping Three Square reach its goal of feeding hungry families and individuals in Southern Nevada.

Check out these three phenomenal foodie havens—Kassi Beach House, Casa Calavera and Money Baby.
