Las Vegas is magical in spring and summer and there’s nothing like eating or drinking outside. Here are the 7 best spots for a picnic or lunch on the patio to soak up the warm weather.

AMERICANA

Quality American cuisine is a specialty at Americana in Desert Shores, thanks to Chef Stephen Blandino, who combines his Italian heritage with American culinary training to create Americana hearty dishes. Don’t miss out on standout produce like oven-roasted Alaskan halibut, grilled filet mignon, and braised ribs. 2620 Regatta Drive, Ste. 118, Summerlin, 702.331.5565, americanalasvegas.com

SEA COAST

Chef Mark LoRusso flies exquisite seafood and exotic shellfish from Italy every day at this Wynn favorite, where the emphasis is on seasonal and unusual catches. Look for rarities like moleche (Venetian soft shell crab) in fall and spring, Centrolofo (imperial black fish) in summer, and its legendary live langoustines, the source of which is only supplied to a dozen restaurants around the world.

I WASH

The LAVO serves southern Italian cuisine in a lively atmosphere and is a dining and lounge experience in the Palazzo.

BACCHUS MARKET

Customers at Marche Bacchus at Desert Shores have two options: grab a bottle of wine to take away or bring it to your table and enjoy with a meal by the water. More than 950 labels can be won, including at least 100 Cabernet varieties, 50 Pinot Noir brands and a convincing selection of Burgundy and Bordeaux. No matter what, you can’t go wrong with the inspired menu of European cuisine. If you prefer more brunch, enjoy the weekend affair until late Sunday afternoon. So you have enough time for bacon and egg risotto, banana foster pancakes and Benedicts with short ribs or salmon. There is even full caviar service and bacon bloody marys to boot. 2620 Regatta Drive, Summerlin, 702.804.8008, marchebacchus.com
