A Week in Vegas

My Fiance and I are going to Vegas to get married at the end of May. We will be staying at the Venetian and its our first time here. (We are there for about a week)

I am a huge foodie, but my fiance not so much. While we don't have unlimited funds we do have some money to spend there. These are they type for foods we love:

Anything local and amazing

We are looking for a good mixture of things and price ranges, from tasting menus to dives.

Any recommendations?

    1. My picks:

      Sushi - Okada
      Steak - Craftsteak
      Burgers - Burger Bar ( DO NOT miss this place )
      Breakfasts/Brunch - Bouchon
      Cheeses - Fleur de Lys ( I had the best cheese plate ever at the end of dinner )
      Local - Rosemary's

      1. There is an In-N-Out burger there.. that place seems to have a cult following.

        I've eaten well in LV, and it has a very diverse selection of high end places by many well-known chefs, but its also pricier for equivalent food - you are paying in some sense for the whole experience. If you are living in an area with a limited selection of good restaurants, I can understand splurging, but don't drop $200 on the same sushi dinner that you can get at home for $150. Its not like Vegas has a lock on all the good ingredients, leaving the rest of us to eat the scraps.

        1. i also got married in vegas, year and a half ago bye elvis. toby kiefs at harrahs for burgers and pulled pork. country music fun casual not expensive
          fat burger on the strip
          i enjoyed the range also at harrahs for steaks.
          ill be in vegas on friday for a week ill up date list for you enjoy

          1. Great responses from all and I would add anything at the door
            I like Daniel Boulud's and its reasonably priced..Okada for sushi is the best.
            Binion's downtown if you want to see the other side of Vegas for the best $4.99 huge ham steak and eggs with hash browns and toast..
            Hugos Cellar at the 4 Queens.
            I like going to the Palms place and I hear that Alize is really good.
            Congrat's to you ksmitty!
