Pizzeria @ The Cosmopolitan

It’s a brilliant marketing strategy really… create a pizza place reminiscent of all those fabulous New York spots, don’t tell anyone about it, don’t mention it on your web site, signage, or collateral, and let the “word of mouth” marketing create a buzz about the place. It becomes a game for some — searching the… Continue reading Pizzeria @ The Cosmopolitan

Va Bene Caffé

The Cosmopolitan is known for it’s amazing array of restaurants. If you’re willing to drop a pretty penny they have something for everyone. However, if you’re looking for some inexpensive fare you have few options, with the exception of Va Bene Caffé. Located on the second floor, close to Holstein, you’ll find a small shop… Continue reading Va Bene Caffé

With that little detail out of the way, Blue Ribbon is worth checking out. The place has a modern Japanese feel… Continue reading Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar and Grill


Located right off the Strip, this place makes for some great people watching… watching all the tourists walk up and down the Strip with their yard long drinks or watching the endless amount of people stream in and out of the Cosmo. On weekends they usually have a DJ and sometimes dancers on a raised… Continue reading Bond

Wicked Spoon Buffet

Wicked Spoon is the newest buffet on the Strip, located in the Cosmopolitan. The interior design matches the rest of the casino — modern, chic, and sophisticated. The food has that same style. This definitely ain’t your grandma’s buffet. Unlike many buffets in town the food isn’t presented in huge troughs that you dig into… Continue reading Wicked Spoon Buffet
