It may come as a surprise to some that sprinkled across the valley among all the popular donut chains, there are small, mom-and-pop donut operations producing quality donuts for reasonable prices. Dee’s Donuts is one such shop. It may not have all the bells and whistles of the name brand donut shops, but for those looking for delicious donuts, personable service and great prices, Dee’s doesn’t disappoint. One can expect to find so many to choose from that it may be difficult to narrow down the choices. Both the blueberry donut and apple fritter are worth a try. Don’t be surprised if the staff throws in a few extras on top of your order. -Amy L. Tjaden

The Vineyard is the utmost in upscale dining. The building itself resembles a castle from the Italian countryside, complete with stone walls and huge arched windows. The menu features mostly Italian-American dishes, with an emphasis on fresh, seasonal ingredients. The Brie Cheese Puff Pastry comes delicious and flaky, garnished with almonds, fresh berries, and raspberry sauce. Thick cut pork chops, strip steak, and pistachio-lime halibut are served in generous proportions. Risottos, pastas, and a fabulous roasted lamb stew round out the entrées. Don't forget to finish your meal with one of their decadent desserts. Reservations are recommended. The Vineyard is located within the Lake Las Vegas Resort.
Who is craving a bite of art for dinner? Krazy Sushi, located in northwest corner of Las Vegas, touts its sushi as being not just food but works of art. That is actually in keeping with Japanese tradition where they believe sushi is an art form in both appearance and taste. At Krazy Sushi they employ a master sushi chef who uses only the freshest ingredients and finest grade of fish to create his works of art. For those craving Japanese food, but not feeling quite crazy enough for raw fish on rice, Krazy Sushi serves many other popular Japanese dishes such as yakisoba (stir-fried noodles) and donburi (an assortment of entrees served over rice). -Amy Tjaden
