New Yorker in Vegas This Weekend

Hey there -

I'm sure this has been posted a million times before, but I'm heading out to Vegas this weekend and I'd like to check out some good restaurants while I'm there. Below are the options I'm looking for. I would have loved to check out Guy Savoy/Rubuchon, but that's out of my budget this time around. I was thinking of checking out Keller's place for lunch or dinner. Any thoughts?

Looking for:

*Thoughts on Bouchon for lunch or dinner
*Late night eats (mexican/burgers or whatever is good)
*Gluten free options
*A nice, but not super expensive restaurant for dinner (about $100 pp)
*Brunch/Breakfast spot

Just so you know some of my tastes, I really like Joey Campanaro's restaurants (little owl/market table) here in the city, love Blue Hill and really enjoyed Ubuntu in Napa.

Thanks so much!

  1. a great gluten free resource for Las Vegas is:

    Bouchon @ the Venetian isn't open for lunch so Breakfast...(great gluten free omelets...and egg dishes) or great for dinner lots of gluten free choices!

    Lotus of Siam has lots of Gluten free choices and a not miss.

    The Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay is open late...anything can be made sans bun...and their fries can be made fresh or baked so they are fried in new just have to ask!

    We found most of the nicer places to be very accomodating when asking for things to be prepared without gluten

      Thank you so much! I'm happy to hear there are some gluten free options and a burger and fries sounds great for late night. :)

        Unless it's changed recently, Bouchon is open for lunch on Saturday and Sunday - well, brunch actually. They serve a combination of breakfast and lunch foods, and are open until 2 pm.

      2. As a fellow/fake Nyer (live in CT and work in NYC) I can tell you what we have planned for our trip in 2 weeks:

        Most in order of preference:

        Tableau (Kobe beef short rib take on eggs benedict is just stunning!)
        Verandah @ Four Seasons (Huevos Rancheros...even if you are not a Huevos fan, these are quite possibly the best I have ever had, anywhere!)

        (No stellar picks, just all solid)
        Border Grill
        Burger Bar
        Jody Marconi (I have not been here so if anyone has any strong opinions I would love to hear. From what I have heard and read, very good sausages in a bad location in the NYNY)
        Pink Taco (love the OK)

        Lotus of Siam
        Bar Charlie (have not been)
        SW Steakhouse (personally do not think there is a steak place in LV that compares with those in NYC, but group wants to go)
        L'Atelier (have not been)
        Picasso (my favorite expensive place to eat, especially on the patio. Not as good as Guy Savoy, but nowhere near the cost either.)
