Need places for foodies as well as designers.

I am traveling to Vegas in 3 weeks for a showroom opening and would like to dine at some great restaurants for food and design.

I have 4 days to eat and gawk, so please help with some places. I like the clean modern contemporary spots, but know that some places are a bit more ornate.

I have reservations at Robuchon, Fleur de Lys, and Mix for dinner so far but can change any of them. I also have lunch at Todd English PUB one day. I would like to add a good steakhouse as well.

I do not mind if they are off the strip or small places, I just want good design and good food.

  1. I've enjoyed all the meals that I've had at Delmonico Steakhouse at the Venetian, but perhaps I've just been lucky. The dining room can be a little loud.

    SW Steakhouse is supposed to be amazing, but I haven't made it there yet.

    Have eaten at Mix. Ask to be seated by a window or outside even, if it isn't too hot. Food and service was spectacular for our visit.

      I think we are going to add B&B to our dinner list and move Mix for drinks instead. We already have a lot of French, so a hearty plate of pasta is good. I also ate at Babbo 2 months ago and loved it and want more.

      Have you eaten at CUT or Craftsteak?

      any other recommendations for a place to grab a good drink after dinner, that is not too clubby/loungy? I am going to be with my boss and we both love good food and drinks, but dont need the loud thumping or $30 cover.

        Cocktails at the Seahorse Lounge in Caesar's, Rouge at MGM or the Downtown Cocktail Lounge, Las Vegas Blvd at Fremont St.

          Cut is a great steakhouse and also Jean George steakhouse in aria is excellent as well. Either one would work well for you.
