Recommendations Please

I will be visiting Las Vegas in August. I was hoping that I could get some dinner recommendations. The essential criteria I have are: (a) places with bar seating that a single person can walk up to without needing reservations, (b) places on the strip within walking distance of the Flamingo Road intersection, (c) places where I can get a decent 2-3 course meal (not including liquor) for about $100 or less; and (d) places where I don't require formal wear, though I certainly will have business-causal attire (e.g., a decent coat, collared shirt). The type of cuisine is unimportant.

    1. You are in luck, because there are literally dozens of options within walking distance of the Flamingo intersection, and Las Vegas Strip restaurants are extremely user-friendly in terms of a solo diner at the bar (with so much convention traffic, they have to be). And $100 pre-liquor will also bring you some upper-end options. With that said, are there some particular preferences that could help to narrow it down? You do have a lot of terrific possibilities in play.

        Hi QAW.

        Thanks for they reply. What I was looking for was a brief list of reccomnedations from a local or someone who knows the city well. The question I have is what would be your top 3 choices in the area, given the criteria I have stated.

          2000fair's response, while not helpful to you, is correct. Your criteria are so broad you will not get a response. Within walking distance to Flamingo/LV Blvd is basically your only relevant criteria given your price range. This includes Aria, Cosmo, Mandarin, Caesars, Bellagio, etc., each of which have many "decent" spots - 40 or more in total.

          My advice - search the boards and come up with 4 or 5 that you think look promising and then ask for input on those.
