Been To Vegas Several Times - ISO New High-End But Not Crazy Pricey Dinner?

v

We've been to Vegas many times and have visited many of the well-received fancy/expensive restaurants. This time, I'm looking for somewhere that's in the $50-100 pp range incl. tips, so unfortunately no Joel Robuchon unless we win big.

Here are the nicer places we've already been: L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon, Guy Savoy, e by Jose Andres, Alize, Picasso, Nobhill, rm seafood, Raku, Bouchon, Charlie Palmer.

The places I'm thinking of that fit the bill for the upcoming trip are Sage, The Barrymore, First, Julian Serrano.

Any recommendations for the places I've mentioned, or any other ideas in the price range? Open cuisine-wise...Italian, French, small plates, steak, whatever. And with Sage's $79 prix fixe menu, do they give little extras like amuse bouches, palate cleansers, or mignardises or is it just the four courses?

    It is clear that your first post doesn't represent your full Vegas experience. But, I will go out on a limb and recommend Charlie Palmer's Cut of the Week. It is back and at $48/pp with all you can drink wine with the first two courses is a screaming good deal.

      How about cabbing/driving to Lotus of Siam for Thai or to Firefly for tapas? They'd both fit your budget including cabs

        I've actually been to both Lotus of Siam and Firefly, just didn't mention them bc they're more casual places.

        First isn't anything like the others on your list. It's not bad but I would save it for when you're looking for a late night eats place that's not a coffee shop.
