Switch at Encore (CLOSED)

While I wouldn’t go so far as to call Switch a “theme” restaurant, the walls and ceiling do change throughout the evening (hence the name), so it’s a bit of dinner and a show. But by no means do they let the food skate by while the decor takes center stage. As always, vegan and vegetarian options abound at Switch in Encore, as with all Wynn and Encore restaurants.

We went here for a group dinner. If you’ve ever tired to wrangle 7 people to decide where to go for dinner, you know it can be a challenge. So the fact that everyone (including this picky vegetarian) couldn’t stop raving about their meal speaks volumes.

I started with a quinoa salad that had lots of great texture. Then since it’s a steak house, I decided to go with the meat theme and try the vegan meatloaf. (Sidenote: one of my meathead friends almost ordered it as well, glossing over the fact that it said both vegetarian and vegan right near it. I think he thought it was “Vegas” meatloaf. But it goes to show you how delicious the description made it sound.) The mashed potatoes were super creamy (and vegan) and I had to fight my husband off to let me eat my own dinner.

All around, definitely one of my top 10 meals in Vegas. The food alone is worth going for, and the vegetarian entre├ęs do not disappoint, but the decor is also something to see.

    Alison, would you mind emailing me? I noticed that your hubby is not veg, but is lactose intolerant. Going to Vegas soon, and would love some dining options from his perspective as I am in the same boat.

    Hey Shawn! We’ve found that restaurants are very accommodating and can easily omit cheese and substitute oil for butter–just let them know ahead of time. We usually say it’s an allergy, which makes them know it’s serious. The best thing about Wynn and Encore restaurants is that they have many vegan options so they can do creamy mashed potatoes or cheesy pasta with dairy-free alternatives.
