3 Nights in Vegas - Suggestions?
Going to Vegas for 3 nights for Birthday/New Year's Getaway. Here's what I'm thinking
Day 1 - Arrive mid-afternoon on New Year's Day, staying at Venetian. Thinking late lunch & margaritas at Taqueria Canonita in the Venetian, Blue Man Group early show, B&B Ristorante for dinner. Staying close to home this day because expecting to be somewhat dragging butt from NYE the night before.
Day 2 - Only thing planned so far is "O" late show for birthday celebration. Getting room service for Breakfast (comes with the room) so need Lunch & Dinner rec's. Dinner in one of the Bellagio restaurants so we're close to "O"? Michael Mina? Sensi?
For lunch, thinking of going shopping off-strip - is Lotus of Siam really that good if we're going off-strip?
Day 3 - Wide open for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner. For Dinner I'm thinking of one between Rosemary's and Alize. I know it's apples vs. oranges - Rosemary's is definitely more along the lines of what my favorite restaurants are, BUT I'm in Vegas.
Day 4 - Sunday Brunch at Bouchon before driving out of town to Sedona.
Day 1 lunch - I like Taqueria Canonita. I think I had a pretty good tortilla soup last time (good for post-NYE).
Day 2 lunch - Yes, Lotus of Siam is that good. Even my non-Thai-food-liking husband really likes it.
Day 2 dinner - I would strongly steer you against Sensi. Not a fan whatsoever. Actually Michael Mina in the Bellagio is my least favorite of the four Mina restaurants in Vegas (Nobhill, Seablue, StripSteak) but others like it. It just leaves me a bit cold. If you like a lively atmosphere, perhaps FIX at the Bellagio? The food's pretty good there. Others here like Picasso and Prime but I haven't been to either. Oh, and Le Cirque is getting some very good reviews here recently. I haven't tried it yet, and for our upcoming trip mid-January I wanted to try either Le Cirque or Alize (which I haven't tried either) and I settled on Alize but it was close. Le Cirque is probably up next.
Day 3- perhaps Mesa Grill for lunch? That's a Saturday, right? They would have a brunch menu, not their weekday lunch menu. Alternatively, brunch at Tableau or Verandah.
