The Best Restaurants Near Hilton Elara

best places to eat near hgvc elara small thumbnailThe two most common questions asked at any check-in desk are by far: “When is checkout?” and “What are the best places to eat around here?”. In this article, we’ll be exploring the latter, and doing it at one of our favorite HGVC timeshare resorts on the Las Vegas Strip, Hilton’s Elara. We know your list may be different, so feel free to suggest some places that we may have missed!

Best Places To Eat Inside Miracle Mile

As you may know, one of the great things about Elara is that it is literally attached to the Miracle Mile shops, which offer a huge assortment of places to eat, drink and be merry.


1. Earl of Sandwich

Miracle Mile Shops
3667 Las Vegas Blvd S
Las Vegas, NV 89109
Phone number (702) 463-0259

Three things this place has going for it: It’s cheap, it’s open 24/7, and their sandwiches are delicious! I’ve been here every time I’ve gone to Vegas, and I haven’t gotten tired of it yet. I wouldn’t call it fine-dining, but it’s my go-to “right-after-check-in-meal”, and will probably continue to be.


2. Gordon Ramsay BurGR

Miracle Mile Shops
3667 Las Vegas Blvd S
Las Vegas, NV 89109
Phone number (702) 785-5555

The ominous glow of flames may attract you to take a look inside, but if you choose to stick around and dine, you won’t be disappointed. Try the curry ketchup sauce with your fries, if you’re into a little extra spice on your spuds!


3. Pampas Churrascaria

Miracle Mile Shops
3663 Las Vegas Blvd S, Ste 610
Las Vegas, NV 89109
Phone number (702) 737-4748

The last two times I’ve visited Hilton Elara, I received a coupon at check-in to eat at this Brazilian steakhouse. We opted for the all-you-can-eat surf and turf, which was reduced in price and very tasty. Of course, there are many other great steakhouses on the strip, but for the convenience of it’s location and the great service we experienced, I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending it for a step up from your regular burger joint.

Best Places To Eat Within Walking Distance

We know many of you folks have flown in, and would like to stretch those legs out, so here’s some of the best places you can walk to from the resort.

1. Eiffel Tower Restaurant

Paris Hotel
3655 Las Vegas Blvd S
Las Vegas, NV 89109
Phone number (702) 948-6937

This is a great restaurant within a short walk of HGVC Elara. You may be tempted to visit Mon Ami Gabi (a great place in itself), which is on the lower level within the Paris Hotel, but you should know this restaurant offers the best dessert soufflé I’ve ever had the pleasure of tasting plus an amazing view with unparalleled service! The menu is of the traditional steakhouse type – be prepared for a pricey bill, but I have to say it’s definitely worth the price for the experience of being treated like royalty.


2. Wicked Spoon

The Cosmopolitan
3708 Las Vegas Blvd S
Las Vegas, NV 89109
Phone number(702) 698-7000

The on-going debate of the strip’s best buffet couldn’t possibly be settled in this article. I can’t say I’ve tried them all, but I have to say I really enjoyed eating brunch at the Wicked Spoon Buffet. The huge selection of different types of food shouldn’t leave you wanting for anything, and the dessert section is enough to send you into diabetic shock if your sweet tooth gets the best of you. Now you just have to decide whether to get the bottomless mimosa / champagne they offer for a reasonable up-charge. It’s 5 o’clock somewhere!


3. Gordon Ramsay Steak

3655 Las Vegas Boulevard South
Las Vegas, NV 89109
Phone number (877) 346-4642

The reviews don’t lie! This price is pricey, and worth every single penny. Service was impeccable, and the menu didn’t leave anything to be desired for me, or my date. Try the beef wellington if your not averse to openly weeping over the deliciousness of your food in a fine-dining establishment.

Best Places To Eat With Access To A Car

The Las Vegas Strip is a big place, and having access to a car, or using a taxi, can make it just a little bit smaller. Thankfully, you can just hop on the escalator in the lobby, and the friendly staff will hail a taxi for you immediately. Here is a list of the best places within a short car ride.

1. SW Steakhouse

3131 Las Vegas Blvd S
Las Vegas, NV 89109
Phone number (702) 770-3325

One of the only places in the United States that serves true Kobe beef! Just make sure to plan ahead and make reservations as they book out very quickly, and you’ll basically never get a table just walking up to the host. It wasn’t a concern of mine when I was there, but they even have a full Vegan menu, for those who have health or ethical reasons for not partaking in their great steaks!

2. Raku

5030 Spring Mountain Rd
Las Vegas, NV 89146
Phone number (702) 367-3511

I can’t say I’ve had the pleasure of dining here, but to quote one review, “A tapas place for us big kids”. This Japanese restaurant on the strip is one of highest rated restaurants in all of Las Vegas. With over 900 reviews and a 4.5 star rating on Yelp, they must be doing something right! Highlights seem to be their foie gras, kobe beef, as well as their agedashi tofu.

 bouchon bistro3. Bouchon Bistro

3355 Las Vegas Blvd S Venezia Tower 10th Fl
Las Vegas, NV 89109
Phone number (702) 414-6200

A Thomas Keller restaurant featuring french cuisine, located on the 10th floor of the Venezia Tower. We went for breakfast, and I’ve heard from others that the lunch and dinner menus are even better. The Croque Madame was a tasty and hearty breakfast before a long day of soaking up the festivities. I can’t wait to go back for Dinner!

Check, Please!

Finding the best places to eat can be a process of trial and error, and your own personal taste (and budget) may dictate how satisfied you are with your dining experience. With us HGVC owners being blessed with such a beautiful resort to visit, let’s all resolve to dine as well as we are accommodated in other areas!
