  1. Emeril's Fish House, at your hotel. It's one of our favorites and we've always had a great meal there!

      I'll second Michelle's recommendation. Emeril's Fish House serves good food indeed. However, you'll need to be very careful if you want to stay below $50/person. It would be easy to spend $75 or more per person. Having said that, I'd still say to go for it.

      For something a little different, you could try Lotus of Siam. It's a nationally recognized Thai restaurant, serving unusual northern Thai dishes, and is frequently discussed on this board. The location is about 5 miles from the MGM Grand, but even with cab fare, you can eat for under $50/person. The bad news: it looks downright seedy from the outside, and isn't that much better looking inside. However, the food is first class.

    2. we love sea blue in your hotel but i don't know if you can do it for less than $100. maybe at mon ami gabi up at paris and it's a favortie too

          Thanks for posting this - I'm heading to Vegas on Sunday and will definitely keep this place in mind. It sounds great!

          I ate lunch @ Mon Ami Gabi last year when I had a day in Vegas on my own. I had a Salad Nicoise and tried several different wines. It's nice to have a good choice of wines by the glass. I was surprised by the reasonable price, the quality of the food and how it managed to feel like Paris. Even had a little culture shock walking back through the hotel to find I was still in Vegas. This may have been an effect of the wine. Definitely ask for seating in the glassed in section by the street, (if not on the street.)

            For under $100 for two.... Circus Circus Steakhouse !
            Terrific Filet Mignon with side and salad for $30-$35 a person. Best steakhouse food/value combo in LV.
            Don't forget to make a reservation as the locals and non tourist trap types are aware of this gem.
