Heading to Vegas next week for the first time to a conference. Any recommendations for good food outside of regular hotel fare?

    Yesterday, I was looking at the Wayback site and reading Chowhound posts from almost ten years ago, and this issue came up often then. I'll repeat what I said in 1998. I don't think there's any city in the world that caters mroe to single diners than in Las Vegas. I've never heard of anyone encountering the slightest amount of attitude being a single diner.

    So I'd worry more about: where do I want to eat if I weren't alone?

      Hospitality is the underpinning of Vegas, where they are happy to take anyone's money, and an application of a little grease always keeps things moving smoothly, and may lead to pleasant surprises when seeking acommodation and service in any venue.

      Thanks especially for the tip about the "grease". Not worried about dining alone just hoping to partake of some off the beate track food finds. Thanks again.

        You can eat at the bar at Michael Mina which is one of my favorites out there. And of course Lotus of Siam is out of this world.

          msmel,
          I travel to Vegas every six weeks for business....and frequently dine alone. Nothing deters me from where I want to go or what I want to eat. I always sit @ the bar...I have dined alone @ Daniel Boulud, Fiamma, Craftsteak, the Palm, Joes, Olives...etc. Make friends w/ the bartender...many times they can make you a half order of an entree or an appetizer.....

          Some restaurants like Red 8 at the Wynn have a communal table...it is a great way to meet like people, and have a lot of fun while enjoying a great meal!

          I have dined at LOS, Cathay House for Dim Sum, India Palace ....talk to your waiter...they are very accomodating.
          LOS also offer a lunch buffet.... many solo diners at lunch!

          Have fun in Vegas

            If I'm dining alone I can think of no better hang than the bar at Rosemary's. Great service, great food, great beer and wine selection. Rosemary's offers tremendous value as well...with the online coupon you can score a 3-course lunch for about $20.
