If you're an adventurous foodie devoted to dining with the insiders, hail a cab and seek out Raku, a small Japanese grill tucked discreetly in a strip mall a couple miles west of Las Vegas Boulevard. Chef Mitsuo Endo, formerly of New York's Megu, has crafted a menu of nearly 100 sample-size dishes that are priced at about $5 each and perfect for sharing. Our two must-haves: Agedashi dofu (deep-fried tofu in a painstakingly reduced broth) and a poached egg with sea urchin and salmon roe. Don't let descriptions like "meat intestine" or "tube-shaped fish sausage" deter you—you're in Vegas to roll the dice, so why not do it on the plate? There are only about 30 seats, so reservations are suggested. The best time to go is between 1 and 3 a.m., when the place is packed with Vegas's discerning casino dealers and servers.—David Tyda

Open Mondays through Saturdays 6 pm to 3 am.
