  1. Rosemary's was good for lunch
    Wynn or Bellagio for buffet

    1. b) special dessert?
      Jean-Philippe Patisserie at Bellagio

      c) good steak?
      Prime at Bellagio, SW at Wynn

      d) best buffet?

      f) especially unique?
      The 4-storey wine tower Aureole - Mandalay Bay
      Open kitchen expensive counter dining at L'atelier - MGM

      1. a) something cheap and nasty?
        Mermaids Casino (downtown) - deep fried Oreos and deep fried Twinkies. See photo.

        b) special dessert?
        I agree with skylineR33. Try any of the pastries at Jean-Philippe P√Ętisserie (other things are good, but pastries are the stars).

          1. Nix the Bellagio Buffet. Spice Market (Alladin/Planet Hollywood) is much better for a bit less cash. I went to Bellagio and was thoroughly unimpressed given the hype. Spice Market was great. Our party of 3 was totally impressed and satisfied.

            With the online coupon, lunch at Rosemary's is $20 for 3 courses. Best deal in town.
