    If you review the various threads on Las Vegas, you'll see opinions vary greatly as to the "BEST" restaurants. It would help if you gave some parameters, ie money, types of cuisine, on or off the Strip. We don't want to recomend a restaurant that averages $300 to $500 a person if you don't want to spend that much.

        For the Bette night I would w/out question eat an early dinner at the Guy Savoy Bubble Bar. Here you can dine at one of if not THE best dining establishments in Las Vegas without the 3+ hour meal. Granted it is a more informal setting and not as extensive as the regular meal but you will not sacrifice quality either. And the go out after Bette as I am sure the show is 90min, just like Elton John.

        I would go to Bar Charlie for one of your other meals and you can search this site as there are a ton of reviews here.

        And for my final dinner I would go to Alex in thw Wynn.

        These are my choices based upon the criteria "price is no problem.". If I were held to another budget...Lotus of Siam, Raku, and Sinatra.

          One of my favoritres is Micheal Minna and Le Cirque at Bellagio, I've had great meals there repeatedly. I'm wondering has anyone tried Joel Robuchon or Guy Savoy, I'll be in Vegas in 2 weeks, which one would you pick for the best of the best bar none ?

            I've eaten at Joel Robuchon once, and at Guy Savoy twice. Based on this limited experience, I place Robuchon at the top of Las Vegas dining. I used to rate Guy Savoy as second, but I'm beginning to think that Bar Charlie (part of Restaurant Charlie) is number two, followed by Guy Savoy and then Alex.
