Foodie Group Goes to Vegas!

Hi Chowhounders,

I'm headed to Vegas with 9 wine, beer and food loving colleagues on November 23rd and 24th. We operate the largest food and wine festival and Canada and are headed to Vegas to celebrate the end of our event season.

We're looking for a more casual but delicious meal on Friday before we head to a show later that night, and a knock your socks off meal on a Saturday night as the main event that evening. We're looking for your top recommendations on where to dine (particularly on Saturday for our 'special meal')!

Thanks for your input - we're all really excited!

  1. What type(s) of cuisine would you prefer? Do you have price points for the casual and/or knock your socks off meals?

    There are so many options in Las Vegas it would be helpful if you narrowed it down a bit.

      I think we're pretty open to all cuisines except sushi-centric. We do have one girl in the group who is gluten free and pescatarian. I think a diverse menu with different proteins would be great. As for price, We don't want to completely break the bank either night, but Saturday would like to spoil ourselves a bit more. I've looked at and tentatively booked Sage - as there have been good reviews. Would you concur?

        You won't be disappointed with Sage and it won't break the bank. For lunch on Saturday you might want to consider the specials at either Comme Ca or Milos in the Cosmopolitan. Both are reasonably priced (aournd $20/pp) and very good.

        If you want to try the Thai restaurant generating the most buzz in Vegas go over to Chada Thai. Here is the most recent thread:

          I can't have gluten and dined at Sage last year. They were very accommodating and there were a lot of GF options without any changes even being made. In general, the nicer the restaurant the easier it is to eat GF. You aren't dealing with many/any processed foods where gluten tends to hide out. And I think that Sage is a great value.

      2. I would do Lotus of Siam on Friday night for some of the best Thai in the US.
        Saturday night I would hit up Twist. e, Jaleo, Cut or Delmonicos.

        1. I take it you're coming from Tronna. Last time I was there the best Thai restaurant I found was Khao San Road. Not bad. But you will find Lotus of Siam on a completely different level for boh quality and variety. Pretty reasonably priced too. You need to drive or cab there - not far from the strip but don't walk. Sage is definitely worth going to.

            We're coming from Calgary. We probably won't go the Asian route, due to a few preferences, but something like Sage (from what I can tell) is probably more up our ally. Any other recommendations are welcome though, I appreciate it!
