Vegetarian/Pescatarian/Kosher - HELP!

I'm headed to Vegas in mid-March with a friend who keeps Kosher, but not super strictly (the kitchen doesn't have to be kosher). She'll eat fish, though not swordfish, shark, eel, octopus, or skate (they're not kosher)...and all shellfish are out. No poultry or meat either.

Me? I'll eat ANYTHING. I'm a bit of a foodie, so would like some interesting and delicious choices on the menu.

Thoughts on restaurants with good vegetarian or fish options? Mid- to Hi-priced are fine, as we're both used to NYC prices. I heard that since Steve Wynn became Vegan, all of his hotel restaurants have Veg or Vegan options? If this is true - which one of his restaurants is best?

Thanks!

    What do you consider to be mid to high priced? Also, will you have a car?

      Would like to keep it at $100 or less per person without wine. No car, but I'm a big fan of taxis!

        FYI, Las Vegas has among the highest taxi rates in the US. a four mile trip will run about $15 without a tip.

          While I appreciate the concern, I spend more on my 2.5 mile taxi ride to work. So as I said, taxi's and their costs are not an issue. Plus - I'm looking to stay on- or near- strip (except for Lotus of Siam). I'm just looking for good restaurant recommendations that fit my somewhat limiting requirements.

      All the restaurants at Wynn have vegan menus.

      Sounds like Bartolotta may be a good option for you. They carry an impressive selection of fish from the "old world" as well as creative veg options. You'll also feel right at home with prices on par with some of New Yorks finest.

      I've also enjoyed the veg menus at Botero, Lakeside and Sinatra.

      LOS is a fine choice as well. Excellent Indian with vegetarian options a few doors down from LOS at Namaste.

      Las Vegas is trending towards becoming a more veg-friendly town.

        Thanks climberdoc! All great recommendations. Bartolotta sounds like a good choice - enough fish for my friend, and plenty of shellfish for me! I'm also checking to see if Sage has an unpublished veg menu. If you think of anything else - send it my way!

        Not under $100 pp, but the confirmation form for e by Jose Andres includes a "Kosher" option, among many others, and they seemed very willing to be flexible when I made my booking.

          Scarpetta also has a good amount of seafood and vegetarian options, as does Jaleo.
