Upcoming Vegas Itinerary, Some New, Some Old

  • 4

We're in town about twice a year, mostly to dine, and have some old standbys as well as new places we'll be trying. We still need one or two dinners filled in, so I wanted to throw our dining itinerary out there and see if there's anything hounders think we're missing:

Dinners:
CUT
Serrano
Scarpetta
Bouchon
E by Jose Andres (already booked)
RAKU
Bites and Bubbles at Guy Savoy

Lunches and Brunches:
Bouchon
Simon at Palms Place
Lotus of Siam
Hot n Juicy
Milos
Monta Noodle House

Under Consideration:
Le Cirque
Sage
Burger at Bradley Ogden

  1. I'd recommend swapping out CUT for either Le Cirque or Sage. Even though I loved CUT last year, I was very underwhelmed when I returned this past April (last year I had the Japanese Kobe beef that was spectacular; since they didn't have the Japanese Kobe this year, I opted for the New Zealand wagyu that was nothing special for $140).

    I've had dinner at Le Cirque several times, and have always loved my dinners. Plus, they've recently changed their chefs (now Gregory Pugin who used to be the chef at NYC Veritas, and one of my good CH friends, RGR, raved about Chef Pugin's food).

    Sage is on my list for next year based on overall great reviews from this Board.

    I had a fantastic dinner at e by Jose Andres in April; I am certain you will have a wonderful time.

    1. can i come with you? great itinerary. was not a big fan of bites and bubbles.

        Thanks ellenost and raider. ellenost, were you disappointed with anything at CUT other than the unavailability of Japanese Kobe? We tend to focus more on first courses than steak there anyways (we usually just split a ribeye), and one of our party is insisting on a return trip.

        Think we'll swap out Guy Savoy and do Le Cirque instead. We did Bites and Bubbles several years ago and it didn't leave much of an impression. I was hoping it might have improved since.

        May also try to sneak in a few bites at the lounge at Sage, provided we can get the foie gras creme brulee at the bar.

        Some people diet so they'll look good in a swimsuit in Vegas. We've been trying to lose weight just so we can put it back on next week...

          My disappointment with CUT was that the New Zealand wagyu was not of the same quality (buttery soft) as the Japanese Kobe, but being charged as much for it. Also disappointed that as a solo diner I was given a table closest to the walkway from the kitchen--there were no other individual tables set, and I'm sure they wouldn't have given me a booth. I dined solo at Robuchon and Guy Savoy, and both times I was given a "prime" table.
