You might not believe it till you try it, but the rich, creamy cheeses at Vintner Grill envelop the palate as much as any sweet dessert would. This northwest neighborhood restaurant has about 50 varieties on its list, from which you can build your own cheese plate to your liking. Several of the cheeses are even made in-house by chef Matthew Silverman. He started with Camembert, but has ventured into funkier territories such as Roquefort, Stilton and aged goat cheeses.
One cheese for $6, three for $15, five for $25, 10100 W. Charleston Blvd., 214-5590, VGLasVegas.com.
