It’s Time for Restaurant Week in Las Vegas

Leave it to Las Vegas to figure out how to effortlessly combine two of this blog’s favorite things: Eating and charity.

Las Vegas Restaurant Week runs from Aug. 29 through Sep. 11, 2011, and gives diners the chance to experience some of Sin City’s best restaurants, all for a great cause, the Three Square organization. Three Square is a food bank that provides meals to the less fortunate in Southern Nevada.

During Las Vegas Restaurant Week, restaurants offer special, three-course menus for $20.11, $30.11 or $50.11. A portion of each meal purchased is donated to Three Square. Get the specifics.

Strangely, we could only fit restaurants at Caesars Entertainment hotels on this graphic. You'll live.

A cavalcade of restaurants participate in Las Vegas Restaurant Week, and it’s a fantastic way to make new culinary discoveries (while getting exceptional bargains at the same time). Visit the official site for participating restaurants and their special menus.

There are a number of events scheduled for Las Vegas Restaurant Week, including the KBG Restaurant Week Mixer at Harrah’s Las Vegas on Aug. 30 and the Bubbles, Burgers and Bocce event at Rao’s inside Caesars Palace on Sep. 1.

We attended the Las Vegas Restaurant Week gathering at KGB last year, and let’s just say celebrity chef Kerry Simon knows how to throw a charity event.

Chef Kerry Simon appears to agree with us: Charity doesn't have to be difficult.

Other highlights: Toby Keith’s I Love this Bar and Grill at Harrah’s Vegas will be participating in Las Vegas Restaurant Week for the first time this year.

This blog’s best bet: The $30.11 lunch offering at Eiffel Tower Restaurant is guaranteed to be mouthwatering. First Course: Strudel of Mushroom and Spinach, Cave Aged Gruyere & Herb Vinaigrette. Second Course: Flat Iron French Steak, Potato Gratin, Cabernet Jus. Third Course: Peach Tarte Tatin; Basil Ice Cream. All at one of the most charming restaurants in town, too.

Payard Pâtisserie & Bistro at Caesars Palace is going the extra mile by including wine pairings with its Las Vegas Restaurant Week lunch and dinner offerings, and Empress Court, also at Caesars Palace, is upping the ante by providing four courses as part of its $50.11 special menu, rather than the usual three.

Serendipity 3 at Caesars Palace is pulling out all the stops with three special menus, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Yes, it’s time to expand your horizons by sampling one of the 100 items on their menu (not making this up) other than the life-altering desserts (see below). More information here.

Just because Serendipity 3's "Deep Fried Oreos and Ice Cream” sundae isn't on their special menu doesn't mean we can't think about it.

Get all the details on the official Three Square site, and enjoy how delicious doing something nice can be.
