It's been five years since Gordon Ramsay invaded Las Vegas with an ever-expanding collection of restaurants. The first three opened in 2012 alone and a fifth is expected to open by 2018. The celebrity chef's partnership with Caesars Entertainment is proving to be a productive one with a wide variety of dining options on the Strip.

Gordon Ramsay Steak

Ramsay's first Vegas restaurant is his most formal, with a spin on fine dining that still feels fresh after five years. A steak wagon will visit your table, making is easy to pick the perfect cut. You can never go wrong with a simple steak dry-aged 28 days in Himalayan sea salt, although the most popular dish is likely Ramsay's signature Beef Wellington. Save room for the Sticky Toffee Pudding for dessert.

Las Vegas is known for its adventurous lineup of restaurants, featuring savory dishes like steak, foie gras and anything else you can imagine. But what about the sweet stuff? Don't worry Sin City has more than a few sinfully delicious places to grab dessert.

Carlo's Bakery

The pastry shop from "Cake Boss" Buddy Valastro can be found at the Grand Canal Shoppes inside the Venetian. Sitting across the hallway from the celebrity chef's own Buddy V's Ristorante, Carlo's Bakery draws long lines of fans, eager to get their hands on cookies, cannoli's and lobster tails.

Jean-Philippe Patisserie

Gourmet chocolates and pastries are given a French twist, courtesy of Chef Jean Philippe Maury. One grab-and-go location can be found at the Aria, while another is at the Bellagio (with an elaborate display billed as the world's largest chocolate fountain).

Where to go for Vegan Dining in Las Vegas

Health-focused diners no longer have to sacrifice taste to enjoy vegan meals. A number of Las Vegas restaurants are offering dishes that are 100 percent plant-based (without any meat or animal products) that are so delicious, they'll appeal to anyone, including carnivores.

Wynn Resorts

Both the Wynn and Wynn Encore have some of the most acclaimed restaurants on the Las Vegas Strip. Each one of them offers at least a few vegan options on their menus, thanks to the influence of Wynn Resorts CEO Steve Wynn, who himself follows a vegan diet.

The philosophy of following animal-free dining can be seen with the recent introduction of the Impossible Burger at Andrea's inside Wynn Encore. Much more than your ordinary veggie burger, it's made from wheat and potato protein, coconut fat, a touch of soy protein, natural binders and leghemoglobin (or "hemo") - a natural molecular element that's found in all livings and gives cow meat its hearty flavor. In this case, hemo is made from fermentation and combined with vitamins, amino acids and sugars to produce a rich taste and natural red color similar to what's found in real beef.
