My husband and I will be in Las Vegas for the first time over Labor Day weekend for 4 nights. Need recommendations for best foodie restaurants... We're thinking Robuchon (which one???), Bartolotta, Savoy, McClain (Sage), Aureole. Thoughts about these ? Are there others we should substitute in???

    If price is no object, you cannot do better than Joel Robuchon. Every dish we had was outstanding, and the experience was unforgettable, starting with the gold limo picking us up. Then there's the bread cart, the cheese card, the candy cart...unbelievable. Just keep in mind, it's really easy to spend $350 or more (much more) per person. When I went in March, my dining companion and I each ordered the 4-course prix fix menu and we each added a cheese course. With wine and supplements, our dinner was over $500 per person. Yet if I could, I would do it again in a heartbeat.

    I have not been to L'Atelier Robuchon, but I will probably try it on my next trip.

    Quite a few years ago I ate at Aureole, but was not overly impressed. Others can comment, and I haven't been, but I hear e is great.

      "e" by Jose Andres should be your choice- Just check out thre reveiws from CH and you'll be convinced. Reservations accepted 30 days in advance.

        Joel Robuchon and e were my best two dinners in April. Was disappointed with Guy Savoy (food); service was excellent though.

          L'Atellier de Joël Robuchon remains my favorite. (I have not eaten at Joël Robuchon "proper.")
