Las Vegas is known for many things, but did you know it’s also a great city for finding some of the best cheese? From charcuterie boards to cheese plates and from restaurants to gourmet shops, dedicated cheese lovers are sure to find a way to indulge in this creamy delicacy in Las Vegas. Whatever cheese you’re in search of, here are the best Las Vegas neighborhoods for cheese lovers.
The Strip is a popular neighborhood that offers endless options for eating, drinking, and entertainment. Without a doubt, any cheese lover must make a stop on Las Vegas Boulevard where you’ll find Eataly, a giant Italian market that just opened at the Park MGM.
This spot is meant to evoke the open-air markets of Italy where shopping and dining all happen in the same place. Eataly features two full-service restaurants, three bars, and a variety of food and retail stands offering items ranging from gelato to extra virgin olive oil. Eat your pizza and pasta alongside your artisan cheeses or buy a few cheese wedges to enjoy at home.
La Cave Wine & Food Hideway at the Wynn Las Vegas is also a great destination for cheese lovers. This modern tapas bar features a small-plate menu of contemporary American cuisine that allows guests to pair a selection of wines and other robust cocktails with artisan cheeses such as Mahon, Aged Gouda Landana, and Saint Andre.
Downtown Las Vegas is famous among the locals and tourists as a fun place to hang out. Residents who live in the neighborhood also enjoy its community vibe, local businesses, and close access to attractions and entertainment. Tourists flock to this neighborhood to check out some of the best places in the city.
Virgin V Cheese may be an online-only shop, but its vegan artisanal cheeses made from organic cashew nut milk make regular appearances at local vendors based in Downtown. Dairy-free cheese fans will love that this vegan cheese is primarily sold at spots like Go Vegan Cafe, Juice Stars, and VegeNation.
Over at Container Park, Bin 702 offers a great selection of charcuterie boards and variety of cheese, some of which include St. Andre and Purple Moon. Whether you want cheese plates or montaditos, which are mini sandwiches filled with gourmet meat and cheese, you can pair your choice of cheese with wines, cocktails, or domestic and imported beers.
Summerlin has long been known as a high-end master-planned community balancing the cutting edge of suburban style with shopping and dining that the city as a whole is already known for.
Located in Tivoli Village, Echo & Rig is known for its classic and butcher’s cut steaks, but this quality steakhouse also features a whole range of cheesy items across its lunch and dinner menu. Some highlights include their spinach and goat cheese quiche, smoked salmon with burrata cheese, and Drunken Goat sandwich that includes red wine-marinated goat cheese and brie.
Just minutes away from The Arroyo Golf Club is Vitner Grill, a Spanish, French, and Italian-inspired American grill known for its cuisine and wine pairings. The menu includes items like wood-fired flatbreads with burrata cheese, a gruyere cheese and bacon burger, and crab ravioli with pecorino cheese—all items that help cheese fans indulge in their favorite dairy dreams.
Although Henderson is its own city, with a wide range of neighborhoods, you’ll find that it has a family-friendly vibe unlike the noisy and crowd-filled neighborhoods of The Strip or Downtown Las Vegas. Thanks to its variety of restaurants, shops, and attractions, this quiet and suburban part of the Vegas Valley is an ideal place to find quality eateries that cater to cheese lovers.
Just minutes away from Dragon Ridge Country Club is Valley Cheese & Wine, a specialty store in MacDonald Highlands offering hard-to-find wines alongside artisan cheese selections such as American Farmstead, Italian, Spanish, and French as well as charcuterie and accompanying accessories. Valley Cheese & Wine takes a specialized approach to selecting their cheeses by getting to know the producer and importer before carrying the products in their store.
