Budget minded Las Vegas dining
Hi all, I'm going to Las Vegas with my boyfriend next weekend and I need help getting some reservations set up. I really want to eat well, but I'm not thrilled at the prospect average bills of over $100 per person. Does anyone have any recomendations for dining at around $50-70 per person? We're not drinkers, so fitting in wine in to that budget isn't an issue.
I'm planning to splurge one night and get a meal at a nice steakhouse. My boyfriend is not adventurous when it comes to food, so I thought a steakhouse would be a good compromise. I'm thinking Craftsteak. I'm also thinking we should head to the Wynn for the Sunday brunch buffet. Other than that, I don't really have much planned.
Also, he's a big fan of chinese and thai food. Are there any restuarants we shouldn't miss?
He would like to head to Fremont Street one night. Are there any good places we should try in that area?
The best Sunday brunch is the Sterling Brunch at Bally's. Sunday only. Lobster and champagne. Not cheap tho. The best steak deal is at the Steakhouse at Circus Circus. You have to ignore everything you walk by to reach the Steakhouse, but once there the steak is great and the price is right. For good and cheap Chinese noodles and similar try Noodle Express at Gold Coast. For cheap sushi stay away from the hotel places on the strip. We were happy with Oyshi Sushi--AYCE made fresh $26pp at dinnertime. Very inventive rolls. For Thai LOS is unbeatable. Just don't have the buffet. Dozens of threads here about what to order. Search.
It sounds like you aren't overly excited about going to a steakhouse. If so, Craftsteak is a great choice, as their non-steak selections are much better than most other steakhouses (and vegetables aren't shortchanged).
By all means, go to Lotus of Siam, a great Thai restaurant on West Sahara.
If your boyfriend is unadventurous with Chinese food, he might enjoy Sam Woo Barbecue on Spring Mountain, where the emphasis is on meats; if he likes seafood, you might try Joyful House, also on Spring Mountain.
