Vegas Foodie Vacation Help

I plan on taking a “foodie” vacation to Vegas this November. It will be my first trip and will be there for 5 days. I’m trying to come up with 5 different places for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I’m looking for the best tasting food in Vegas. I’ve done some research and have the following lists:

Breakfast – Bouchon, Sterling Brunch, Verandah, Tableau
Lunch – Border Grill, Milos, China Poblano, Lotus of Siam, Spago, Tacos el Gordo
Dinner – Michael Mina, Guy Savoy, Fleur, Picasso, Sage, Joel Robuchon, L’Atelier, Raku, CUT, Le Cirque, E by Jose Andres, Kabuto, Scarpetta, Charlie Palmer

I have way more restaurants for dinner then I will actually be able to attend. Was most likely going to just go with the tasting menu wherever I went, provided they have one, however, if there is something I should order please let me know. Any help of any kind as far as where to eat and what to order would be greatly appreciated.

  1. add mozen bistro for breakfast. or lunch. also pj clarke's for lunch.

    1. That's a very solid list - you've obviously done your homework. My primary suggestion would be to eliminate Fleur as a dinner option - based on my dinner there last January it just doesn't measure up to all your other picks. Border Grill is undeniably fun but that's another one you could reconsider - it used to be a regular stop for us (primarily because we usually stay at theHotel), but we scratched it off our list a few years ago after some less than exciting meals. Personally, I would probably pick Beijing Noodle #9 at Caesar's or one of the other Chinatown spots over Border Grill.
