Dine Out with Endless Options
Las Vegas is one of the nation’s top food cities, and you’ll always be near something delicious, whatever you’re in the mood for. The best part about visiting the Mandalay Bay Beach is you’ll literally be within walking distance of some of the best dining options in the city. For a full list of the hotel’s food offerings, check out the Mandalay Bay’s Dining page. If you’re looking for a more curated list, here are the joints we recommend:
- Aureole. Located at 3950 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Aureole offers a premier dining experience, tailored to pair well with their massive wine list — make sure you check out their four-story climate-controlled wine tower. Their Free Range Chicken Breast is a reliable classic, though if you’re feeling fancy you won’t want to miss the Mishima Wagyu Rib Cap. And the best part? Their award-winning fare is served up by James Beard Award Winning Chef Charlie Palmer.
- Border Grill. Located in the Mandalay Bay, just off the beach’s Lazy River, Border Grill is a vibrant Mexican restaurant serving up contemporary twists on the classic fare you know and love. You really can’t go wrong, though the Carnitas Tacos and Border Baja Ceviche are some of the best you’ll ever taste. Plus, you’ll be treated to fantastic views of the beach and pool while you dine.
- Kumi. Located just northeast of the beach, Kumi Restaurant + Lounge takes Japanese cuisine into the twenty-first century with sustainably sourced ingredients. For food, try the Chilean Sea Bass or the Wagyu Ribeye. And for drinks, take a look at their incredible wine list and jaw-dropping selection of Japanese whiskeys and top-notch sakes. With an upscale, modern vibe — think natural woods and hammered steel — the space itself is almost as phenomenal as the flavors.
