ONE night in Vegas

CarrieWas218 Oct 14, 2011 01:59 PM

Napa/San Francisco hound passing through Vegas on a Sunday evening in November.

Because I get the likes of Bouchon and Morimoto more than I could possibly want, what Vegas eatery would be a true stand-out?

I don't really have a budget constraint, but am mostly tired of the high-end, multi-course haute cuisine. Is there something truly different that inspires and astounds?

    For tapas type meals try The Bar+Bistro in the Arts Factory.

      Thanks for the replies - I had been referred to Raku but learned they are not open on Sundays... I have opted to go to Jaleo since there is precious few *decent* tapas in the Bay Area.

        Namaste which is next to Lotus of Siam has some good Indian eats.

          We recently at at jaleo. And really liked it. It's a tapas restaurant with a party atmosphere, and everything we tried was delicious.

            Check the board for other choices, but my choice would be Lotus of Siam

              LOS is a great choice for Thai food. Good food with a comfortable homey feel to it. Location is not in the greatest part of town though.

              I like Hot & Juicy Crawfish for some New Orleans, Cajun flavor. It is the exact opposite of uptight cuisine. Imagine plastic wrap on the tables and food served in plactic bags with rolls of paper towel on each table. But, if enjoy getting your hands dirty and licking your fingers, this may be your spot. Not sure if you guys have something similar near where you are in SF, but we got nothing like this yet in Hawaii and it's a must see place for us when we head to Vegas.
