Vegas Eats - Hound Coming for the CES Show - Dinner $35 Excluding Tax & Tip???

slowrider Dec 28, 2006 07:09 PM

Looking for hound approved places during the CES event.
Any type of cuisine....Chinese, Mexican, Ethiopian, Thai, Basque, Mongolian etc.......

This year the company I work for is being a stickler for sticking to our dinner per diem of $35.00 excluding tax & tip.....

We will have a car, so places off the strip are fine.....

Looking for places that accept reservations, so as to avoid any problems.....but if it's a good place that is usually not too crowded please let me know...

Thanks in advance!!!!

    Best deal for lunch on a weekday: the three course lunch at Commander's Palace for under $20 plus $0.25 Martinis. Everyone will love you - for the food AND for keeping well under budget. Definitely make reservations !

      Note that you want reservations for some of the more popular places, even off-strip, during CES. Definiely recommended for Lotus and Rosemary's; you might not run into problems at India Palace or the Michoacans.

        If you like Indian food, you can't go wrong with India Palace on Twain/Paradise...try the papadums along with the Korma and the Peas Pualo w/ the raisins, almonds and cashews....it is yummy!

          We've eaten at an Ethipian place in Vegas recommended by an Ethiopian blackjack dealer several times. I thought it was good, but not the best I've ever had. It's in a strip mall--not at all fancy. It was cheap. On all three occassions we ate there we were the only non Ethipians, and it wasn't very crowded.

            Can't go wrong with either of the above. You'll need a couple of hours to do Rosemary's with the drive time (but it is absolutely positively worth it).

            You mentioned Mex in your list, so I will recommend either Bonito or Lindo Michoacan. They're both about equidistant from the strip...on Decatur and Desert Inn respectively. Huge menu from which to choose and it's all good.
