40th Birthday Celebration in Vegas!!!

Hey guys - just wanted to go straight to the "source" and get help in designing an itinerary for three nights in Vegas in November. I am going with my wife and about 15 friends - we are staying at The Bellagio (this will be mine and my wife's first time to Las Vegas). We are all from Florida. We plan to do one Michelin type of dinner (thinking either Guy Savoy or Robuchon) - need advice on which (money is no concern for this dinner).

Also - need some advice on other dining destinations and must do things aside from casinos. The group I am traveling with are all mid 30s to early 40s everyone likes to drink and have fun, but we are not really "club" type people.

I watched an episode of Man v. Food and Adam went to this little place off of the stip that looked like they had awesome crawfish. Anyone know the name of the place and opinion of it?

Hey - thanks in advance for all the anticipated help!!

  1. For your one Michelin type of dinner, I highly recommend Alex at The Wynn Hotel over either Guy Savoy or Joel Robuchon.

    I also highly recommend CUT at The Palazzo Hotel for great steak.

    1. Robuchon is the way to go - the best meal I've had in Las Vegas. Of course, Guy Savoy and Alex are both excellent; I'd be happy at any of them. Prepare to spend a minimum of three hours, and probably more, if you go for the full treatment.

      1. Hot and Juicy is what was on Man v. Food. FYI, this site has a strict policy about non food related request or posts.

        1. Hot & Juicy Crawfish is a lot of fun, but it isn't for everyone. The food is rather spicy, and it's messy, and it's in a barebones atmosphere. I think it's a blast, but it's kind of a one-dimensional meal (the sausage is good, too).

          1. For drinks/snacks I recommend MiX (at THEhotel attached to Mandalay Bay) at sunset, and also the patio at Parasol Down at the Wynn - totally chill, 'Lake of Dreams' side.

            I also love craftsteak - we really liked the halfsteak menu in the lounge for a little bit more of a bar atmosphere and a slightly less serious dining experience.
