2 Nights in Vegas--2 reasonable suggestions?
- Grey Nov 16, 2006 05:06 PM
Will be staying two nights at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas in about two weeks, and be without a car. We are a party of three, looking for quality chowhound-worthy restaurants for dinner, that won't break our banks. Would love to find spots where our bill won't surpass $100-150 total. I know, crazy, right?
Night 1: Will be seeing a show at Venetian, so any quality recommendations near that area? Venetian, Wynn, Caesar's, etc.?
Night 2: Any quality recommendations near the southern end of the Strip, near our hotel? Mandalay Bay? MGM?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Looking for a great-but-reasonable food eating experience. I have some ideas, but I wanted to get everyone's input. Big thanks in advance!
Well, for your first night you might consider cafe ba ba reeba at the Fashion Show mall, just diagonal from the Venetian. I think it is fun, small plates and should be within the price range. You might also check whether Bouchon in the Venetian is doing a prix fixe three course before the show; they've done that in the past occasionally; we always go and end up ordering off the menu, but it is a good deal when offered and would be in the range. I think most of the restaurants at Wynn will be too expensive.
At the south end of the strip, you might consider Burger Bar in the Mandalay Place shops; I think the burgers are really good and it's a fun place; it is very casual tho. The Border Grill is actually pretty tasty and is in Mandalay Bay. I'm not crazy about most of the restaurants in the MGM nor am I a big fan of rumjungle or red square in the Mandalay Bay. You might also consider a cab ride and trying Lotus of Siam, which is terrific and innovative Thai food and would be well within your price range.
