Recs for Las Vegas-- 6 girls

hello! i know there are a lot of posts with las vegas restaurant recommendations, but none really suited my trip... i am going in 2 weeks with 5 friends (not a bachelorette party or anything, just for a fun weekend) and would love some great meals. this is our first trip to vegas! we live in NYC so are no stranger to many of the restuarants out there, so we'd like to try something different. no price range in mind, but want some trendy/happening places that would be good for a group of girls. any suggestions would be great! thanks.

  1. well, what kind of foods do you girls like??? do you want a big name chef like Emeril, WGP, MM, Todd English.... or do you just want casual dining???

    I would try the Eiffel Tower Rest. at Paris LV, or Top of the World at Startosphere Tower, or for a good steak try Smith & Wolensky's (across from Monte Carlo), or off the strip try Morton's, Roy's, McCormick & Schmidt's, Laudry's the prime rib. I hear Bally's Steakhouse is good too.

    For a really nice italian meal in a classic vegas speakeasy joint, try The Bootlegger Bistro (about a 1/2 mile past mandalay bay on the strip).

    1. For trendy and happening, I'd suggest Voodoo Lounge at the top of the Rio. ISame idea as Eiffel Tower or the top of the Stratosphere. It looks a little crummy as you get off the elevator but I suspect that's by design. You can drink in the bar on the roof and catch the view. The food in the restaurant is OK, not bad enough to stay away from the place if you would enjoy the location. The Rio is off strip but only a quick drive/cab ride.

      1. Tao at the Venetian is a great place to eat with a trendy atmosphere, and it turns into a club later a night. The food is actually really good, it's Asian-inspired. Another few places that I personally haven't dined at, but get mentions on the board are Fix at the Bellagio and N9ne at the Palms. They're both trendy, but it really depends on what age group you're in...the one's I've mentioned are more geared toward the 20s/younger 30s, but again, I haven't been to the last two, just Tao. Have fun in Vegas!

        1. Will you be visiting through the weekend?

          1. hi all! thanks for the recommendations. i should have mentioned we're in our mid-20s. maybe we'll try n9ne at the palms since we made a res. for social house already. we'll be there through the weekend!
