3 Days in Vegas

Any chowhound thoughts on my plan? Staying at Encore & would prefer to eat at mid to north strip restaurants. Traveling with my husband; we're in our late 20s.

Dinner- Sage (before the late show of "O")- my Alex replacement
Dinner- Sushi Samba
Dinner- La Cave
Lunch- Buffet at Wynn (repeat from our last trip, husband's choice)
Lunch- BLT burger (we enjoyed Burger Bar last time, husband's choice)

Snack at Bouchon Bakery (need more macarons)

I haven't seen any reviews of La Cave yet but the menu looks appealing.
Any duds in my list?

  1. My only gripe is Sushi Samba. I ate there last month with friends who were visiting from out of town and were staying at the Palazzo. Portions are terribly small. They drench much of the fish in a mayo based sauce. And it's really expensive for dead fish.

    If you must have sushi, go to Sen of Japan. Really good, reasonably priced and fresh fish.

      I welcome your opinion because I haven't seen any reviews for it on here.

      I'd like a big, loud, fun, uniquely Vegas restaurant. Definitely doesn't have to be sushi.

        I really wonder if many restaurants here can be considered uniquely Vegas at all. Consider that most of the celebrity chef restaurants are merely copies of original eateries in other cities? Are we not becoming a town of chain restaurants? Hash House A Go Go, Du Pars And Original Pancake House have become the defacto coffee shop in many of the resort hotels.

        Even something as truly nice as Mon Ami Gabi at Paris with outdoor seating and perfect views of passing crowds and the Bellagio fountains is a part of a large corporation called Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises. They operate 50 restaurants in 8 cities.

        You might want to consider Voodoo at the Rio. Top floor, attached to the Voodoo nightclub. Eat at the restaurant and get free admission. Spectacular view of the city. Or Nove at the Palms. Free admissions to Moon and the Playboy club.
