First up is Nora's Cuisine, a family-run Italian spot that has been in business since 1992. The eatery started off in a tiny space that could seat 12, later moving to its current location at 6020 W. Flamingo Road. 

The restaurant stands out among the local businesses that are popular with your neighbors. While the average eatery has 21 Nextdoor recommendations, III Forks has racked up a whopping 524 and was voted a 2019 Neighborhood Favorite business in 77 Las Vegas neighborhoods.

The dinner menu features freshly prepared pastas and pizzas along with house creations like grilled beef tenderloin with melted Gorgonzola and a red wine reduction, and favorites such as the frutti di mare with shrimp, mussels, clams and calamari in a marinara sauce.

Pair your meal with one of the many handcrafted cocktails or a glass of wine.

Next up is Lindo Michoacan West at 10082 W. Flamingo Road. The Mexican eatery has been serving up traditional fare since 1990, later expanding to this location in 2008 and another Las Vegas outpost. Thus far, it has garnered 231 Nextdoor recommendations and enough votes to be selected as a 2019 Neighborhood Favorite in 20 neighborhoods.
