Why Michelin Star Restaurants are Missing in Las Vegas

Currently, there are no Michelin-starred restaurants in Las Vegas. But this doesn't mean that there aren't any Michelin-starred restaurants in the city. Even though there is no up-to-date Michelin guide to Las Vegas, you can still enjoy a meal at one of the Michelin star winners on this list. One of the Michelin-starred restaurants has won other awards, such as the Forbes Five Star Award and the TripExpert Expert's Expert's Choice Award, and has been chosen as one of the 100 best restaurants in North America by the opinion magazine About Dining.

It is believed that Michelin no longer values Las Vegas restaurants, not because there aren't good restaurants, but because Las Vegas is no longer on their list of cities they visit. DJT is a Michelin-starred restaurant located at the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas, which is the only restaurant not on the Strip. It is an American-style steakhouse that focuses on regional and seasonal cuisine. It also has an exclusive menu for children and alcoholic beverages.

Robuchon's eponymous restaurant at the MGM Grand, which is the only Las Vegas restaurant to receive the highest Michelin rating, earned him three stars. Wing Lei is a Michelin-starred restaurant in Las Vegas where family-style food is recommended. It is considered a fashion reference in Las Vegas, which opens the way to other Cantonese-style restaurants in the area. Both Wing Lei and Robuchon have aged well since receiving their Michelin awards, and remain among the best restaurants not only at the MGM Grand, but anywhere in Las Vegas. Le Cirque is another Michelin-starred restaurant located at Bellagio since 1998. It offers a wide selection of wines and has also been awarded the AAA Five Diamond Award and a 5-star rating from the Forbes Travel Guide. It has since closed, but under new executive chef Dameon Evers, it is still going strong and some say it's better than ever. If you're looking for a luxurious dining experience during your next trip to Sin City, these are the nine Michelin-starred restaurants that ranked first in the ephemeral Michelin guides in Las Vegas and how much you should be willing to spend on each of them.
