Nine Great Places for Old-School Dining

Original Article: "Nine Great Places for Old-School Dining"

Las Vegas restaurants were long famous for shrimp cocktails, Caesar salads and prime rib, and while those dishes are still a staple here, the menu at many old-school restaurants has been expanded to include everything from French cuisine to Chinese dim sum and smoked salmon pizza. For modern foodies, these standout establishments are a great link to the past.

Mon Ami Gabi (Paris Las Vegas, 702.944.4224)

“Vive la France” meets “Viva Las Vegas” at this longtime Gallic gem in the bustling heart of the Strip. Beneath the beautiful Eiffel Tower, share baguettes with friends on the patio and revel in gastronomic treasures like quiche Lorraine, escargots de Bourgogne, trout almondine and profiteroles. Plus, it’s a magnifique setting for people watching.
