Memorable Las Vegas Dinner [moved from L.A. board]

My fabulous boyfriend and his best friends are going to Vegas to celebrate his birthday this weekend. He really wants to have dinner somewhere amazing. Can you help?

They are staying at Mandalay Bay, Guy Savoy is out, one of his friends said nothing looked good on the menu (I know, I know) and my boyfriend doesn't want to go to a steak house.

I almost never make food decisions without consulting with the chowhounders and have never been disappointed. I am excited to see what you have to say about Vegas. :)

    1. Before it gets moved..

      you should check out the paris sunday champagne brunch. it's the only buffet i'll eat in vegas. 26 bucks and they have EVERYTHING.

      1. I'm sure this will be moved to the Southwest board...

        But, S.O. and I had a very memorable dinner at BARTOLOTTA RISTORANTE DI MARE for our 2 year anniversary. Be sure to definitely request a table/cabana outside. We did the tasting menu and everything was absolutely fantastic!!!

        BTW, this is in Wynn.

        1. I would check out the buffet at Wynn. I will the next time I go to Vegas.

            Watch out, esp during a holiday weekend. I waited 3 hours for the dinner buffet 2 days before christmas. It was great...but nothing is worth a 3 hour wait. Next time I go, I'm going early (dinner buffet opens at 3:30).

          2. Metro pizza has fabulous NYStyle Pizza. Several outlets in town but the one I went to was inside the Ellis Island Casino on the street behind the main drag. fabulous homebrew. where else can you eat and drink in vegas really well for under ten bucks.
            obviously, this is not meant to be for his blow out dinner, but a great place to recover and spend not so much.
