Mom's Birthday Dinner

Flatowleach Dec 12, 2010 10:32 PM

I am looking to take my mom to a nice restaurant for her birthday in a couple of weeks. I want something nice, but not something that is going to break the bank or that I have to take out a loan for. I would prefer to avoid a buffet and she is not the biggest French food fan.

I know this is restrictive, but any help will be appreciated.

    Since I only visit every few months and tend to go to the same (more expensive) spots, I only have one rec. In November, before LOVE at the Mirage, we had a very nice dinner at Kokomo's. Comfy booth, nice room, good service and their prix fixe dinner was $39. It certainly wasn't cutting edge dining, but it doesn't sound like you want that anyway. We really enjoyed it, at that price especially.


    But just wandering around, I see many of the nicer places, usually before 7ish that offer great deals advertised with a placard out in front. I can't imagine there aren't more that locals don't know of if you want to eat on the Strip.

      I don't mind paying about 30/40 a person. She is not a big drinker so wine etc... is not really something she will get. Her birthday is on a Monday.

        ...not sure what to recommend at that price point. Probably need to get off the strip. I guess Otto could be nice at that price (and they have restaurant.com gift certificates on the cheap.)

        Also, what night of the week, so that we can tell you of any specials that might be happening.

          How much, per person, do you want to spend - and does that include wine?

          As it is mom's birthday - what is her "favorite" food-type and/or "favorite" restaurant?
