NYE Dinner and casual dining options Las Vegas


This is my first post here :) I am flying into Vegas in about 4 hours. We already have dinner booked tomorrow night at Picasso. I am looking for something casual to eat tonight before the festitivies. Also, something for lunch tomrorow. Our big meal is tomorrow night, obviously, so i want something low-key but at the same time I don't want to pay $12 for a club sandwhich in a lame casino cafe either. I was thinking Bouchon but OpenTable says they are booked. Any other suggestions?

  1. Where are you staying, or where will you be tonight/tomorrow? With the celebration, you can have a great time WITH the crowd or hell on earth trying to FIGHT the crowd trying to get somewhere. Also, unless you're eating just as the restaurants open, you will definitely need reservations.

    1. Enoteca San Marco is a good option for a casual meal. Try the veal and ricotta meatballs. They're fantastic.

      I like Mesa Grill for lunch. It's casual with a pretty good vibe.

      Too bad about Bouchon. You may try Daniel Bouloud. Similar menu options. Same approximate pricing. A bit quieter atmosphere than Bouchon.

      Happy New Year!
