In total, The Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas has 16 different dining options.

These range from frozen yogurt stands, to highly-regarded steak houses run by celebrity chefs.

The Mirage’s 16 eateries break down as follows: 11 full-service restaurants, one buffet, and four counter service stands (i.e. Starbucks and the like).

Here’s a quick rundown of the Mirage’s 16 restaurants:

Tom Colicchio’s Heritage Steak

The former “Top Chef” serves up meat here, and lots of it. All cooked over fire or in a wood oven as diners inside the 220 seat restaurant enjoy a contemporary dark wood, (yet open) surroundings.

Diners start with the free bread and beef jerky. It may sound odd, but it seems to work.

Appetizers include the popular charred octopus, and chilled bison carpaccio.

Diving into the main courses, you’ll find a fine selection of ribeyes and steaks, including three different choices of wagyu, (The A5 Japanese Wagyu is described as “mouth watering” by many).

Those looking for something other than steak can select from dishes like duck breast, or the 2 pound serving of butter poached lobster.

Sides include everything from hand-cut French fries to shishito peppers to the raved-about truffle risotto.

On the dessert side, the blueberry cobbler (topped with ice cream), scores wonderful reviews.

These include Brazilian-prepared Angus beef sirloin, slow cooked Portuguese sausage, a honey brushed turkey breast roulade wrapped in bacon, roasted pork long, lime chicken and more.

Sides include your standard black beans and rice, vegetables, and the not-so-standard sweet-fried plantains.

Carnegie Delicatessen

Famous for their pastrami sandwich with meat piled on higher than the Stratosphere (almost), the New York import to Sin City also serves up soups, salads, burgers and hot dogs.

Its long sandwich menu is full of standards (reubens, salami, bologna), as well as a chopped liver option.

It’s all day breakfast menu includes lox and bagels, and several different omelets.

Unlike in years past, the Carnegie Deli at the Mirage now just has counter service, rather than a normal sit-down with full service waiter/waitress arrangement. There is a separate stand for take-out orders.

Hours:

Sunday – Saturday: 8 AM to 11 PM

LVB Burgers and Bar

Formerly the home for BLT Burgers, LVB Burgers and Bar is a gourmet sit-down burger restaurant in the busy corridor near the south exit of the Mirage. In other words, it’s pretty good for people watching.

Some of the more non-typical menu items include a duck burger, mini oyster po’Boys, a salmon and pineapple burger. Fortunately the famous BLT adult milkshakes are still around. These are the whiskey and rum infused milkshakes that are to die for.

Hours:
