Venetian/Palazzo Recommendations

Going to LV in early October, staying at The Palazzo. Always like to have first night's dinner in the place we're staying. Have enjoyed meals at Tao before. Used to be big fans of Postrio. Were underwhelmed at Morels.

Would like to try something new in Venetian/Palazzo complex. Recommendations?

  1. Cut at the Palazzo gets a lot of love on this board. Dry-aged steaks and options for Waygu/Kobe. I've never been, but I hear the steaks are lovely, though be warned, the prices are high.

      Mmmm..Cut. Warm Pretzel bread with normandy butter, 35 day dry aged Ribeye, Creamed Spinach, and a Grey Goose Martini with blue cheese stuffed olives FTW.

    2. Many of the restaurants - Cut, for example - are right where Palazzo meets the Venetian. So, about a one minute walk from Cut is Delmonico. Look at their websites for locations but really most of the Venetian restaurants are as convenient for you as most of the Palazzo restaurants. Cut didn't impress me although it gets high marks from others. What I consider the baseline steak, a prime New York is more expensive at Cut than anywhere else I've seen in Las Vegas. I will acknowledge the bread and service are excellent but I actually don't think the prime NY matches other places. Now, if money is no object and you want to drop a bundle on Wagyu that's probably another story.

      1. I've heard good things about Cut, as well. Not a big fan of Delmonico's. Our dinner there a few years ago was below average and disappointing. B&B gets mixed reviews on this board, but I love the food and atmosphere. The pastas are incredible. If you find yourself looking for something casual, Enoteca San Marcos is great.

          If you arent looking to break the bank and want something fun and unique...try First Food Bar @ Palazzo/Venetian. They are open for Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Its tucked down a hallyway where the 2 hotels connect. It is a very modern take,unique twist on classic american food. I went for lunch and couldn't make up my mind ...everything sounded great! I had the Cobb salad and a Dr. Browns Celray tonic.
          Every table gets a complimentary order of freshly baked hot pretzels w/ 3 different mustards while you are browsing the menu.
          It is defintely worth checking out! I really enjoyed it.

            Agree on Enoteca for casual; had a very nice lunch there and it's a fun location for people-watching. We had dinner at Bouchon Bistro and were more than happy with it - excellent food, well-chosen wine list, and first-class service.
