  1. Well, the very best Thai restaurant in the United States is in Vegas, but you won't come anywhere near $100 per person at Lotus of Siam, and it's not exactly a flashy Strip hotel restaurant.

    Lotus of Siam
    953 E Sahara Ave Ste A5, Las Vegas, NV 89104

    1. A few of my favorites are Delmonico (Venetian), Nobhill (MGM), Cut (Palazzo) and Seablue (MGM).

        Vegasjuhl, can you tell me a bit about Nobhill and Seablue. Perhaps some menu samplings. We are only able to go to one of those two restaurants, and I am very torn.

          I've eaten at Seablue a bunch, the menu changes regularly because they'll only offer the freshest seafood. We always start with the chilled prawns. We often get a salad, they have a build your own option where you check off all the ingredients you'd like. There's a zillion possibilities. For entrees we've ordered the prawn skewers and halibut most often. We've also had lamb skewers, pork chop, NY strip and seabass. Most entrees come with side that's in season. Everything has been excellent. They have a unique version of tiramisu and the molten cake dessert is delicious. Oh and to start they give you flat bread, the name is escaping me right now... with a sampler of goat cheese, hummus and baba ganoush. Again, very tasty. Also, they don't use butter, and most dishes are light so even when stuffed you don't feel blah or bloated.

          Nobhill we only dined at once (it's a little pricey to make it a habit), but I'm itching to go back. We started with cheese fondue and charcuterie board. The selection of meats were very good and the aged parm was the best I've ever tasted. The fondue was divine. We ordered the special, bone-in ribeye. It was delicious! We agreed it was better than those we've had at Delmonico. It was served with roasted potatoes, watercress, and a veggie medley. Also had bacon wrapped berkshire pork loin, which was accompanied by roasted duck, and brussel sprouts. They also delivered a variety of potato puree: horseradish, tomato, pesto, garlic and traditional. Everything was excellent. We passed on dessert, but we received hot chocolate as a complimentary after dinner treat. Reserve a private booth for a more intimate dining experience. Dishes are rich, but scrumptious.

      2. Although the main items at Bouchon isn't that expensive, the $100 mark could be achieved by treating yourself to a plate of fromage or the foie gras. Bouchon is a bistro by the one and only Thomas Keller (James Beard Foundation award winner... need I say more?), who also owns the French Laundry in Yountville, California. It's in the Venetian, check out its website, maybe it will spike your interest.

        1. A great restaurant for italian would be Nove on top of the Palms. It's got a great view of the strip, cool atmosphere, and great food. You will get a complete meal for $100 (inc. appetizer, dessert, and drinks). My favorite is the lobster pizza and all their pastas.

            If you check the MGM website you will see the summer dining special listed. All of the MGM restaurants are offering this and the most expensive one at L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon is only $75. If you truly have a hard cap at $100 pp and have never been, this is a great opportunity to eat very well.

            If $100 pp is just a range, then the tasting menu at Michael Minna at the Bellagio or the one at Picasso are both within reach and excellent.
