Places off the strip in Las Vegas
How about Lindos Michocan on West Sahara (Mexican). FREAKING FANTASTIC! My husband and I ordered practically everything we could think of including several (I remember drinking at least 3) Margaritas and the bill didn't break $100. This was a recommendation by both our server at Bobby Fley's Mesa Grill (also wonderful) and the concierge at the Encore. We didn't go wrong!
Yes, Raku! They open 6pm and close at like 2am. Reserve by e-mail.
The girls there are very nice /courteous and walk customers outside for their cab ride.
For cart style Dim sum - Orchids Garden on Sahara serves all day dim sum. They are also very reasonably priced.
How about Malaysian food, try Penang. It is across the street from Raku and on the second floor. I always get their Roti that comes with chicken curry as appetizer.
I second the Raku recommendation. Call now & get a reservation. I also like Todd's Unique for outstanding steaks/seafood (try skirt steak or short rib). Lotus of Siam is the must try Thai place in town. Hit Settebello for the best Italian pizza in Vegas (good lunch spot). Love the wild boar bolognese & seafood bouillabaisse at Vintner Grill (also open for lunch). Marche Bacchus is a nice bistro with great wine shop. Rosemary's is always worth the trip.
I third the Raku recommendation. It is just about my favorite spot to eat. Don't miss their home made tofu. Also if pork belly is on the menu, do give it a try as it is about the most luscious thing that I have EVER put into my mouth. Velvety doesn't even begin to describe it.
Hash House a Go Go for brunch/breakfast. Sinful.
Also Rachel's Kitchen in Summerlin, off 215.
Vintner's Grill, Rosemary's, Marche Bacchus for dinners.
Postrio in Venetian (?) for lunch. Worth being on strip.
