Show Your Spirit With Vegas Golden Knights-Inspired Cuisine And Cocktails

Pretty much the entire city of Las Vegas has been perched on the edge of its seat since the nail-biting start of the NHL season. The Vegas Golden Knights hockey team absolutely hit the ground running ice skating in its inaugural season, creating a beautiful buzz among locals and surprising hockey fans everywhere.

As the fight for the Stanley Cup heats up between the Knights and Washington Capitals, everything from the Julius Caesar statue in front of Caesar’s Palace to the Statue of Liberty in front of New York-New York are sporting Knight’s gear. There’s a five-foot-tall chocolate sculpture of powerhouse goalie Marc-André Fleury on display at Bellagio Patisserie, while over at Salon Bellagio, men are having their playoff beards dusted with gold glitter. Now some of the hottest restaurants in Las Vegas are scoring goals with Knights-themed cuisine and cocktails, such as the six indulgences below.

Stacked high with Wagyu beef, caramelized onions, grilled abalone mushroom and pomme frites on a brioche bun, the burger is so juicy and delicious, you may have to defend it from your friends.

Based on his name alone, you might say Wolfgang “Puck” knows a thing or two about hockey. Now the city’s favorite celebrity chef has unveiled a Vegas Golden Knights Pizza, exclusively at Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill in Downtown Summerlin. Inspired by NHL defenseman Nate Schmidt during a one-on-one, pizza-making session with Puck himself, it’s topped with ingredients like shrimp, basil pesto, fresh mozzarella, roasted tomatoes, red onions and jalapeños.
