I am not one for cooking at home too often. My husband and I love going out to dinner and trying new Las Vegas restaurants. The Valley has had several new restaurants open up shop and I am dying to try them out and of course see how they would work for Las Vegas weddings.
Carson Kitchen
Carson KitchenRecently, I went out a with a few girl friends and we tried the new Carson Kitchen in downtown Las Vegas and let me tell you… it was beyond amazing. I crave it every day now. With a menu that will attract any taste from starting plates of bacon jam and tempura green beens to entrees of short rib sliders, steak or¬†burgers, you can not choose wrong. Prices that are less than $20 per plate, a specialty cocktail menu to impress and the quaint intimacy of a small restaurant, this place is a must go.
 
Giada
GiadaI have been a fan of Giada De Laurentiis for quite some time and when I heard she was opening her very first restaurant here in Las Vegas, Giada, it had me jumping for joy. I have yet to try this place out, but from the looks of it I will be loving it from the moment I step in the door. Giada has amazing views of the Las Vegas Strip and is located inside the new boutique hotel, The Cromwell. With a capacity of seating 260 guests, I have a feeling that this is going to be the new hot place for rehearsal dinners and large receptions.
Mercadito

Red Rock Hotel & Casino recently did a little restaurant face lift and added several new dining locations. Mercadito is for sure on my places to go in the near future. With a recent opening of just yesterday, I believe this is going to be a new fun place for all of those Summerlin people to dine.
