    1. If burger bar and Paris buffet were to be the highlight of my trip, I'd probably start looking through some threads around here for better ideas. ;-)

      1. The hole in the wall Italian that I did last time in Vegas was Carluccio's, on Tropicana right next door to the Liberace Museum. It's an old-school red sauce Italian joint that time forgot, something quite rare in the ever-changing Vegas desert. The decor was put together by none other than Liberace himself. The food... well, it's 1970s red sauce Italian done right.

        1775 E Tropicana Ave, Las Vegas, NV

        1. You HAVE to try this place- we went to Vegas April for a week, and it was so incredible we went there twice- once for breakfast then back for dinner. UNBELIEVABLE! I had gotten 50% gift certificate from, too Check it out! (but, you do have to drive, hope you're renting a car?)

          1. Bootleggers Italian Restaurant on Las Vegas Blvd South. Do a google on it. Best Italian in Vegas, bar none.
