Las Vegas for a week.

sawrshom Oct 23, 2011 09:56 AM

I have been scouring this forum and Zagat’s to find great eats for the week. We will be staying at a condo, so breakfast and lunch are covered. According to our tastes these are our choices so far:

Lotus of Siam
Todd’s Unique
Bellagio Buffet
And Burger Bar.

Any suggestions? Anything a must eat that I have over looked??

    Well I didn't like Burger bar or Tod English P.U.B as both were subpar IMO.
    For buffets I liked the one in Wynn over Bellagio's.

      Thanks everyone!!
      We are going to Todd English P.U.B. just for happy Hour and a few snacks before we head home on Friday the 4th. We will be in Vegas on business (SEMA Show), so the lunches are all covered. It is the nights we have free and boy am I looking forward to my restaurant choices!! You all have been great help and I will report back when we return home!!

      I would eat lunch a couple of times at LOS..
      Secret pizza at the Cosmo hotel...Todd English PUB for happy hour.
      Country Club at Wynn has always been great.
      Hugo's Cellar downtown at the 4Queens..

        Ok Great!! I think we have settled. Cancelled reservations at Todd' Unique......we will make it there another time. We also cut The Burger Bar. We added Sage, Raku and Todd English P.U.B.!!
        Can't wait and THANKS for the great advice!

          And remember if you go to LOS at lunch, the full menu is always available(and recommended), even if the majority of patrons are eating the buffet.

            I'm not a fan of Todd English Pub...too many inconsistent meals there. On the other hand, the food and service at Todd's Unique are top notch. However, they are two totally different types of restaurants, so depending upon what type of food and atmosphere you are looking for, one or the other might be what suits you.

              It's been awhile but they have a good tableside salad, solid lobster tail.
              Very old school and hit up my fave roulette table at the entrance..

            You have a nice mix of restaurants here. I'd really consider going to Raku. You can eat cheaply here or spend quite a few bucks if you order the most expensive fish items or the kaiseki dinner, but I don't think you will be disappointed.

              Thanks to both of you.....so if I were going to drop one, would you agree to drop Buger Bar in favor of either Sage or Raku?

                I adore Burger Bar, and would drop it from my itinerary for Raku in a heartbeat.

              I recently tried several upscale burgers on the strip and was very disappointed by Burger Bar. The two that really stood out for me were Todd English's P.U.B. in Crystals shopping center next to the Aria and Holsteins in the Cosmopolitan.

              Sage inside the Aria is FAB!
