Their location in New York was notoriously impossible to get a reservation, but you can book at a table in Las Vegas without any hassle. The old-school vibe is strong here, as is the incredible Italian food. But it’s up to you if you opt for the normal menu (like that amazing lasagna above), the Christmas Day specials, or the full Feast of the Seven Fishes.

Where: Caesar’s Palace.

Why: Delicious fish in a legendary location.

How Much: Varies depending on your order.

Ideal for: Italian food fans, fish fanatics, or anyone who wants lobster for Christmas.
