Las Vegas: East Harlem’s New Rao’s Restaurant In Vegas World

July 6, 2017

Heading to the West Coast and want a taste of Harlem while you’re in Las Vegas, we suggest you head to the new Rao’s restaurant.

The Coast News reports that the “authentic” style of Italian restaurant is Rao’s, inside Caesar’s Palace, where I stayed. It recently celebrated 120 years in operation in East Harlem, New York, founded by Charles Rao. In 2006, the family took their Southern Italian cooking secrets and opened a second Rao’s in Vegas.

Rao’s recipes and Italian-style wines were straight out of an Italian kitchen, going  back to its beginnings. Try the homemade tasting Caesar Salad, Eggplant Parmesan and Lasagna. I will never forget their “Happy Hour” for an extended three hours, from 4 to 7 p.m., where a menu full of your choice of filling dishes like meatballs, Penne pasta or Portobella mushrooms each went for way under $10.

The wines were amongst the most well known in Tuscany, like Chianti Classico, Rosso Montalcino and many others, also way under $10. Salute to Rao’s.
