best crab cakes or caesar salad in las vegas?

I had the crab cakes at joes stone and crab in vegas and was blown away. I doubt I got the best the city has to offer on my first try, so does anyone have any other recommendations?

I know the second one is a little weird to ask, but if a place has a great caesar salad, the rest of the food is normally great as well.

  1. The caesar salad at the Palm is fantastic. I order it every time I am there.

    1. How traditional do you like your caesar? There is an interesting version that we have enjoyed several times at Charlie Palmer Steak (Four Seasons/Mandalay Bay), with prosciutto wrapped romaine hearts, and marinated fresh white anchovies.

        that variation sounds nice. I do like when the dressing is white. I don't like it as much when its just oil with white bits, you know what I mean?

        I heard that there is a place in vegas that makes the dressing tableside, raw egg and all.

        RE: baseballfan, what restaurant at the palm?

          I think baseballfan means this place:

          ... which certainly makes sense. You want a good caesar, go to Caesars, lol.

            I think baseballfan means the Palm Steakhouse at the Forum Shops and not the Palms Hotel.

            1. re: Eric

              Yes, I did mean The Palm restaurant in the Forum shops at Caesars. They make it tableside and it is delicious.
