4 Nights in Vegas - Too Many Choices - Help!

d

With the myriad of posts on Vegas and all the restaurant choices, it can get so confusing! I rarely get this opportunity so I don't want to blow a night. What is the latest and greatest? I'm an adventurous eater but my husband is a meat, potatoes and seafood guy, so we need help with places where we can both be happy. We plan on 2 higher end evenings and 2 not so much. And any lunch recs are more than welcome! Will be on the north end of the strip, Wynn Encore. Thanks.

    Since you are from the Southeast, I say In-N-Out Burger for 1 of the lunches. Lotus of Siam for 1 of the non higher end dinners.

      What is the deal with In-N-Out? I have never found them to be all that great, and their fries are like biting sawdust. To me they are just another fast food hamburger joint.

      Lotus of Siam was the first restaurant that I thought of, too. The charcoal-grilled steak is superb, and comes with the dressing on the side. Many of the fish dishes at LOS couldn't be less "scary."

        I'm simple, my husband is a foodie. Our four dinners were at
        Julian Serrano - perfect for the two of us, fun to pick so many dishes
        SW Steakhouse - pricey, decent - i wouldn't say it was perfect but the experience was great.
        Olives - inventive food and a great view of the fountains
        Joe's Stone Crab - my favourite dinner...simple food made very well and not overpriced
        Bouchon - for brunch.

          Raku. Fantastic Japanese food off the strip, and very affordable.

            I recently returned from Vegas and dined at CUT. This is my 5th time eating here and every time has been stellar. The bone marrow flan is seriously one of those dishes you go back just to get it again and again.

            Also, PJ Clarkes in the forum shops is surprisingly great. The food contends with most places in Vegas without the foo foo. Burgers, steaks, and pretty much all American food done spectacular. Food is ten times better than Joe's Stone Crab

            Tableau in the Wynn serves up awesome breakfast and lunch. Have not been there for dinner.

              Thanks guys...great suggestions. We're flying in Wednesday so I have a few more days to research and plan. If anything else comes to mind, please let me know!

                Since it is closing at the end of the year, I would highly rec Bradley Ogden (Caesar's Palace) for the prix fixe burger or fish and chips. Both are heaven and served either at the bar or lounge. I've always had great service and food, and since I like eating at the bar- met some great people.

                  I'm going for 4 nights at the end of next month. I've chosen (so far, as of right now): Bouchon for dinner, Olives for lunch, Picasso for dinner, Spago for lunch, casual dinner the first night with a dessert only at Paris. That leaves one more dinner, but that depends on what we find on the night we do old Vegas.

                  I am so excited! Thomas Keller and Todd English! I've only cooked out of their books, can't wait for the real thing.

                  Now I'm researching chocolate shops and patisseries.

                    Consider Payard in Caesar's for your chocolates and pastries. They have a bistro too which is nice for breakfast and lunch too. If you're in the chocolate counter area watch the clock thing in the middle of the shop as it randomly spits out chocolates.

                    There's also Jean Philippe inside of Bellagio and Aria.

                    There's a Bouchon pastry counter over by the Phantom Theater in the Venetian.

                      Thank you! I have Payard down, I think Spago is in Caesar's too, I don't have my notes with me. Bouchon Pastry will be seen the day I go to Bouchon and I'll check out Jean Phillipe later today.
