We thought things were bad when the buffets shut down. Unfortunately, as Las Vegas remains on lockdown due to COVID-19, our city’s great restaurants continue to keep their dining rooms closed while relying on takeout and delivery orders to bring in any sort of revenue. In most cases, their very existence depends on it. We’re in this together, so if you crave something beyond cereal and frozen dinners, make a point to support our local restaurants, using the following updated list as a starting point. Keep in mind — hours, operations, and menus can change by the day, so contact each restaurant directly for the latest information. It’s a tough time right now. You need food, they need money, and we’re all trying to avoid each other. Let’s eat!
