These days, Nevada’s cuisine scene is pretty damn haute. From Mr. Chow to Gordon Ramsay, Nevada’s food and drink scene has beckoned celebrity chefs from all backgrounds and culinary styles, ready to leave their mark on your taste buds. Get your hands on a schmancy bartender flare-ified cocktail then stroll the Strip. Claw your way through a king crab feast in the buffet capital of the United States (and planet). Slink into a red leather booth at a Rat Pack-approved steakhouse. Take your pick of food comas at Reno’s more-per-capita-than-anywhere all-you-can-eat sushi spots. But the Nevada food scene’s bragging rights don’t stop there. When we’re cruising around the Silver State, sometimes we just find ourselves craving some tried-and-true Nevada flavors and a classic haunt to savor it all in. Drink in some history at backroad sagebrush saloons. Beef up with family-style garlic-loaded Basque steak and lamb feasts. Or toast that local beef burger basket with sagebrush-infused spirits and ranch-brewed ales. So then… what’ll it be?
