Need recommendation for birthday dinner with several parameters in Vegas
I need to find somewhere to take my boyfriend for a birthday dinner in Vegas. However, there are several catches.
It has to be upscale/high-end
But it can't be "stuffy" or "frou frou" (whatever that means - I think that means nowhere old-fashioned like a traditional steakhouse or old school french, and nowhere where the atmosphere is at all uptight or too hyper-trendy/pretentious)
It can't be a steakhouse unless it's a non-traditional steakhouse and has a lot of great seafood/non-beef options
It can't be: Alize, Guy Savoy, Shibuya, Picasso (we've been to those), Nobu
So it's kind of tough b/c it needs to be nice and upscale, but apparently not too old-school fancy or too sleekly trendy. Any ideas/recommendations? Willing to go a little off-strip but would prefer to not go too far off-strip for convenience reasons.
