Breakfast: Corner Kitchen & Donuts, The LINQ Hotel & Casino

Mmm…donuts. Fans of The Simpsons usually reach for The Homer, one of several witty donut creations here.
Others favorites: The Breakfast donut, which is topped with Fruity Pebbles, and the S’mores, which will have you reminiscing of nights by the campfire. Wash down your choice with a nitro coffee. Corner Kitchen also serves pastries, pizza, and sandwiches for the lunch crowd.

Brunch: Giada, The Cromwell

For a great view (and the best lighting), request a seat by the window and settle in with a white peach Bellini or try Giada’s sangria. The brunch menu at GIADA can be sampled à la carte or from a tasting menu ($55), which includes fresh pastries, an antipasti platter and choice of an entree and dessert. Dive into the seafood platter or choose between her decadent lobster hash, salmon benedict, or the pizza carbonara, which comes topped with a sunny-side-up egg.

Dinner: Restaurant Guy Savoy, Caesars Palace

The biggest question in experiencing Guy Savoy’s food is which menu to choose? One of the best options is the Forbes Menu—five incredible courses paired with some of the best wine on the planet. The meal begins with a Dungeness crab salad seasoned with cilantro and Meyer lemon and topped with golden Osetra caviar and edible gold leaf. Dots of pureed heirloom beets ring the plate.

Food-Tography Tips

  • The Right Light: Use natural light whenever possible. Even if it means requesting that corner table by the window.
  • Be Creative: Compose your photo using various camera angles. Aerial photos, shot from above, often provide the best perspective.
  • Focus, Focus: Avoid distracting backgrounds. Pick the hero subject and focus on the dish.
