My trip to Vegas was my longest business trip to date with a full seven days. If you have ever been to Vegas you know that is a feat in itself. I had two conferences back to back. The Consumer Electronic Show and Affiliate Summit. My schedule was pretty packed so I needed to schedule my Kosher meals with James Bond precision.
Luckily, Uber launched in Vegas a month prior to my arrival and I had the addresses of above the restaurants. At the very bottom of this article I’ve suggested the restaurants you steer clear of as it’s my opinion they don’t provide the quality for the amount $ offered. I arrived at my hotel and immediately headed off to Yelp’s highest rated Vegas kosher restaurant Osi’s Kitchen.
Osi’s Kitchen (5 out of 5)
Surprisingly Yelp was 100% correct in recommending this restaurant. I walked in and I was immediately taken back six months when I was in Tel-Aviv with my wife. The smells, the décor, the people! I arrived 10 minutes before closing and ordered the Merguez, Moroccan Meatballs, Ghotmesh Sabzi, and a couple of Israeli style bourekas. If you’re in Vegas order all the above and if you win some money at the tables order everything else on the menu. You won’t be disappointed.
Simon and Joes Eatery (4 out of 5)
Simon and Joes is a modern/retro dairy Israeli restaurant. They have Israeli music playing and great service. The quality of the pizza was even better than most NYC establishments. I ordered a pizza and told them to surprise me with the toppings. Within 10 minutes a large pizza was on my table and it was HOT! Definitely go here and try the pizza or have them deliver it to your hotel.
Genesis Restaurant (2 out of 5)
I have a love hate relationship with Genesis. Those of you that have gone will understand what I’m talking about. They have two restaurants next door to each other – one meat and one dairy. It sounds convenient but I feel like they sacrifice quality. They also charge for EVERYTHING. Fries…extra! You want a baguette with your schnitzel…extra! Overall their fries were pretty soggy and the schnitzel was hard and came with an extra side of no taste. I’m not asking for a Michelin star schnitzel here, just something edible.
