Worldly Delights

Travel the world without ever leaving the desert at these six new global outposts

FRANCE: Bardot Brasserie

Michael Mina’s new restaurant pays homage to Parisian brasserie favorites, featuring indulgences such as roasted bone marrow with bacon marmalade, a roving shellfish cart and, of course, to-die-for steak frites. The French-inspired interior brings out an alluring atmosphere reminiscent of the café culture. 3730 Las Vegas Boulevard South; aria.com


U.K.: Whist Stove and Spirits

Taking over the former Presidio space at Green Valley Ranch, Whist Stove and Spirits redefines traditional dining with a small plates sharing menu and decor including wood and copper accents. The restaurant opens in tandem with the adjacent Due & Proper, an authentic English pub perfect for a comforting pint of Guinness. 2235 Village Walk Drive; whiststove.com


ITALY: Alex Stratta Italian Steakhouse 

Celebrated chef Alex Stratta returns to town with this Gramercy Las Vegas restaurant, which serves a combination of rustic Italian fare and contemporary steakhouse favorites. Enjoy pizza, filet mignon or something from the raw bar before checking out live entertainment at the stand-alone bar, then marvel at the Strip skyline from the enclosed glass patio. 9257 West Russell Road; alexstrattasteakhouse.com


JAPAN: Yojie Japanese Fondue 

This Los Angeles–based transplant is known as one of the pioneers of shabu-shabu dining, a prepare-it-yourself meal with meat, vegetables and noodles cooked in boiling pots of water right at the table. Diners will love the fondue-style participatory experience.

Opening in early 2015, Mr. Chow at Caesars Palace is the Chinese restaurant’s first Vegas outpost. After arriving via private elevator, guests will be treated to Asian staples like chicken satay, green prawns and hand-pulled noodles, along with stunning views of the Garden of the Gods pool complex. 3570 Las Vegas Boulevard South; mrchow.com

One of the most eagerly anticipated openings of the year is Miami-based Yardbird, which is finally setting up shop at the Venetian. Known for family-style fried chicken and Southern comfort food, the boîte will have two private dining areas, a bar with an expanded cocktail program and even an on-site ice room for mixologists to hand-cut specialty ice blocks. 3355 Las Vegas Boulevard South; runchickenrun.com
