Sin City is not just full of gaming tables and glitzy shows. The place is a dining mecca, thanks to the high-profile chefs and restaurateurs who have flocked there over the past two decades. For wine by the glass, the best places in town are the legendary Le Cirque at the Bellagio, Carnevino, Craftsteak and Delmonico Steakhouse. Emeril is in the game with his Delmonico Steakhouse, and so are chef Mario Batali and restaurateur/winemaker Joe Bastianich — all using the innovative Coravin System for extracting wine without removing corks. At Carnevino, an Italian steakhouse by Batali and Bastianich, close to 35 wines are available by the glass, ranging in price from $10 to $1,000 per pour — an impressive range. Chef Tom Colicchio’s Craftsteak at the MGM Grand offers 22 wines by the glass and an additional 18 “special and unique wines by the glass made possible by the Coravin,” including the 2008 Joseph Phelps Insignia, 2010 Opus One and 2010 Sine Qua Non Five Star Shooter. Have fun at the gaming tables but save a few chips for some rare wines by the glass, too.
