one night - first time in Vegas - Mirage

We are going to be in Vegas for one night and are going to see the Beatle's show at the Mirage. I have looked online at the restaurants in the Mirage and am ambivalent. Anything really good near by that we should try. I am up for anything but will be with people with more traditional tastes.

  1. How about Bouchon at the Venetian? It's less than a 10 minute walk over to the Mirage.

    1. Second Bouchon, but it depends on your price range. Le Cirque and Alex have customizable Prix Fixe that should appeal to and amaze anyone.

      1. I like Japonaise in the Mirage, It is kind of japanese but with a different touch. You can pull up the menu online and check it out. The California Pizza Kitchen is good for variety and not expensive. I think it is better to eat at the hotel rather then driving around. PS You will love the show, one of the best in town!!

        1. let's hear the priorities relating to price, ambiance ( including quiet v. noise ) , cuisine, casual or formal ?

            My goal is to find a good meal fairly close to the Mirage - moderate to moderately expensive. Formal but not stuffy with a fairly relaxed ambiance. Thank you all for your help.

              Well, I don't know what you mean by "formal but not stuffy with a fairly relaxed ambiance." To me, formal isn't necessarily stuffy, but neither is it particularly relaxed. In any event, I would stick with my initial recommendation of Bouchon. You should look at restaurants within the Wynn, Palazzo and Venetian, as these hotels are within walking distance of the Mirage and all of them house many excellent restaurants. The first time we saw Love we ate at Okada (Wynn) first. The second time, B&B (Venetian) I think.
