Male Bonding in Vegas-But w/ good food!
My boyfriend is heading to Vegas with his Dad and brother tomorrow for a weekend of male bonding. While I have been told to do some research on restaurants, I myself have never actually been to Vegas (only read about the excellent dining scene).
These guys like to eat well but are not really the steak house crowd. They are well-traveled and enjoy different types of cuisines including New American, asian/asian fusion, Indian, french, Italian, organic/farm fresh and seafood. They are coming from Boca Raton and Detroit. They also appreciate a cool ambiance/decor (isn't that part of dining in Vegas anyway?)
They will be staying at the Bellagio, and a bunch of people have already told them they HAVE to check out the buffet.
I put together an inital list of restaurants that stood out on Zagats and would love your input. I know food is expensive in Vegas but if you have any more affordable recommendations please let me know. These are mostly dinner ideas, but could be lunch if they are open. Breakfast recommendations are also appreciated.
*Guy Savoy (mostly because if I was heading to Vegas and didn't have to pay, this is where I would want to go :) )
*B & B Ristorante
Thanks for your help and input.
I've been saying it a lot lately on this board, but I'll say it again... I recently had a wonderful meal at B&B. Both the food and service were top-notch.
I also enjoyed Guy Savoy. It's very formal, but I took the less formal approach and ate at the Bubble Bar. I actually thought to myself, "what am I doing here?" when I walked in, but the friendly and professional service quickly put me at ease.
If money is no object and they qualify as "foodies", then Savoy or Bar Charlie inside Restaurant Charlie would be my suggustions! Bar Charlie offers a Multi-Course Sushi Tasting option that is out of this world!
The other best options on your list are Bradley Ogden and B & B. I have had great meals at both places.
Do Burger Bar for lunch.
