Trip help - casual lunch in, or close to, Aria

Most of trip is already planned (dinners at e, LOS, and Prime) but need lunch recs - preferably in City Center as we're staying in Aria. We won't be up for breakfast so I'm talking filling food to soak up the rest of the booze whether it's italian, american, sandwiches, asian, etc. proximity is most important with how we'll probably be feeling.

I read Wolfgang Puck has a decent pizza place in Crystals with all day happy hour at the bar but don't have much else to go on. I'm not expecting culinary genius just nothing outrageously overpriced for the quality received - I'll take mediocre pasta if it's close and cheap for vegas standards. Good example is Julian Serrano would not fit the bill because it's small plates and a little pricey.

  1. I'd go to Todd English P.U.B. It's right there at Aria. For really casual just sit at the bar and munch on the snacks.

      I agree P.U.B. does bar food very well. We had the carver platters, which are essentially make your sandwich plates of your choice meat, bread and sauces, served with pickled vegetables. The brisket and the crispy duck legs are what we had and they were both great.

        I agree. The carvery platters are excellent. The lobster rolls and the Kelly's sliders are good as well.

        If you are still hungry, the desserts are delicious. I believe they are made in house. We had a sampler that was well worth the extra calories.

    2. While you're at the Cosmo for the e' dinner, you can look at Holstein's for a possible lunch. I had a really good hamburger there (The Rising Sun kobe burger with teriyaki sauce, tempura avocado, and nori furikake). Holstein's had some yummy looking alcoholic shakes and some other interesting items on the menu.

        The Aria buffet is excellent. The quality is just as good as the Wynn. However, the selection is smaller. The buffet actually has a tandoori oven.
