Part of the fun in coming to Las Vegas is discovering something new. One of our favorite hidden gems in Sin City has to be The Blind Pig Provisions & Lounge, a fantastic restaurant that is located in the Panorama Towers right off the Strip.
The Blind Pig has the vibe of a trendy Los Angeles restaurant, with its urban-chic decor and sleek bar. As the name suggests The Blind Pig specializes in meat (specifically pork), but you will be amazed at the wide-variety of excellent offerings on the menu. The hand-tossed, 14-inch pizzas have proven to be a big hit and rival some of the best spots on the city. The New York-inspired, Bleecker Street Cheese pie is a particular slice of heaven, along with the BP Classic, and there are even gluten-free options on-hand too. Another surprise is The Blind Pig’s authentic Shrimp & Lobster Roll, which could certainly pass the taste test of any New Englander. We’re also big fans of Seared Ahi Tuna entree that comes served with a teriyaki glaze, puffed rice noodles and a side of savory wasabi mashed potatoes. Looking for something a bit for indulgent? You can’t go wrong with their authentic Southern fried chicken or flavorful Bootlegger Strip Steak dishes.
As The Blind Pig also serves as a lounge, it makes for a great place to enjoy happy hour as their appetizers and cocktails are very tasty. You can order authentic poutine here, where fat crinkle-cut fries are perfectly paired with rich cheese curds and gravy. The crispy pork nuggets are particularly addicting and come with a sweet chili glaze, Sriracha aioli and peanuts. But our personal favorite might have to be the Spicy Tuna ‘Inside Out,’ which comes with cucumber, avocado, chili mayo, teriyaki glaze and served on a bed of crispy puffed rice to make for an explosive flavor combination. Not only is there a world-class restaurant, but you can also opt for their made-to-order counter to grab a great breakfast, fresh smoothies and of course world-class selection of deli meats and fresh baked breads.
While not hard to find, the Blind Pig can easily be overlooked amidst all the much-ballyhooed restaurants on the Strip, but once you discover this delicious little haven, you’ll want to go there again and again.
