Tasting Vegas for our Honeymoon

Hi all.
My FH and I are going to be in Vegas for four days and three nights in October for our honeymoon. We arent interested in gambling, might go to a few shows, mostly we're there to wander around and eat at as many great restaurants as we can.
So I was hoping that you all might be able to help me out by suggesting great restaurants that have small tasting menus or good happy hour food specials. I've been reading reviews and menus, but I hope my fellow chowhounds can give me some great suggestions. We will be going up to the freemont st area one afternoon but other then that we are carless on the strip. We're staying at Mandalay Bay. Thanks in advance for all the help.

      I was planning on Bouchon for breakfast one morning. I was also considering the Buffet at Paris but thought it wasnt really special enough. I think I've settled on Verandah and Mon Ami Gabi for the other two breakfasts.
      The L'Unique menu at L'Atelier looks like just what we were looking for.
      We are planning on having one splurge meal. I would like it to be Italian. We went to B&B last time. This time we were thinking Sinatra at Encore. Seems to get good reviews and the food looks very good. Also considering Fleur de Lys. Not Italian but the menu sounds mouthwatering.

    2. You have 2 really good places right in your hotel-Border Grill, fun upscale Mexican and Aureole for tasting menu.
      Sinatra is fun-Steve Wynn was there the last 2 times I had dinner there. Osso buco is excellent.

      1. Fleur de Lys is right in your hotel and does a killer happy hour deal. You can choose from many small plates for <$10 each, or order the entire menu for <$100. It's a steal.
