Solo, staying at Caesars for four nights- Where to eat??

Won't have a car and would like to try a lot of the restaurants in or near the hotel- or walking distance. Where no to miss....price is not a problem. THANKS

  1. If you are at Caesars over a weekend, don't miss Mesa Grill for brunch. The spicy chicken, sweet potato hash is fantastic. You can eat at the bar.

    The bar at Bradley Ogden also is a great solo dining option. The bar has a prix fixe option with a fantastic burger.

    Have breakfast one morning at Payard. I love the Nutella Crepe with carmelized bananas, but it is ridiculously sweet.

    Although I've never been, the bar at Guy Savoy has small plates with set prices for 2, 3 or 4 items. That is a place I keep planning on trying, but my timing just never works right.

    Leaving Caesars, I've been treated very well when dining solo at Roku in the Forum Shoppes. If you like sushi and are adventurous, the chefs will treat you very well. (I think they get sick of people coming in for the scene or nothing more than spicy tuna/california rolls, so enjoy customers who give them some free reign.)

    Another solo spot that I love is L'Atelier de Robuchon at MGM. You would need to take a cab or the monorail from Ballys. The best seats at L'Atelier are at the bar that faces the open kitchen. You get a dedicated server and can watch the chef's cook the meal. The tasting menu is fantastic.

      Bradley Ogden is one of my favorites-that burger at the bar is sublime. Great service every time I've been too and there is always someone interesting to chat with. A lot of the supporting crew for Cher and whoever else is playing at the Coliseum hang out there.

        I'm going to third Bradley Ogden - the prix fixe menu is an outstanding deal for that burger. Plus the tomato salad was out of this world.

        I also had a really great meal at American Fish - I don't think you'd feel out of place there dining solo.

    2. Definitely go to Alex at the Wynn (I've dined there a few times solo, and have always been treated extremely well). Le Cirque in the Bellagio is another favorite of mine when I dine solo. Didn't care for Picasso as a solo diner.

      1. Noodles at the Bellagio
        sit at the counter...great friendly service with delicious food!

        1. Check out BLT Burger at the Mirage

          1. I always travel to Vegas alone, I love Mesa Grill (I sit at the bar there), Wolfgang Puck's Grill @ MGM (I sit at the bar there, too). I also love Canyon Ranch Spa Cafe in the Venetian (either sit at the bar or at a table).

            I also had a great meal and a great experience alone at Craftsteak in MGM
