The Bootlegger has a long history of being a favorite place for pasta dishes for locals and tourists alike. When referring to The Bootlegger during his tour of Las Vegas for his popular food and travel show, “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown,” Bourdain said he was thankful Las Vegas still offers lounges and “places where a man could get a proper plate of Italian-American meatballs and spaghet.”
