Escape to Parisian Paradise at French Restaurants on the Strip

From the great pyramids of Luxor to the canals of Venice at The Venetian, visitors can travel the world during a short weekend stay in Las Vegas.

But there’s one culture so prominent and powerful throughout the Strip that it outshines the others.

But its final and most delicious form is in the culture and cuisine served up at some of the top-rated, award-winning French restaurants along the Strip.
