Need help with off strip Las Vegas restaurant for a large party

I'm looking for a restaurant in Las Vegas to host a 40th birthday party for my wife and I. Probably about 40-50 people and we're picking up the tab. I did this 5 years ago and we went to Firefly for tapas and open bar. It was about $100/person including tax & tip. I'm looking for something similar here but don't want to go to the same place.

I am most likely looking for someplace OFF the strip. Also, a place that has a nice decor, that makes it worthy for a nice birthday party. An idea I'm playing with (but don't know yet how to execute) is finding a great chef who may not have his own restaurant or does pop-ups but does have access to a space (given that we can have alcohol).

What I absolutely, positively, do NOT want to do is Buca di Bepo, Maggiano's or something like that. I can't host everyone at Craftsteak but I also don't want to do chain.

Thank you for your help and suggestions!

  1. Via Brasil is off Strip and has a private room that can accomadate eighty people.

    1. Reviving this post since I have exactly the same question...

      Looking to host a 40-60 people group. Off Strip. $100 pp cap including tax and tip. Maybe one $10 drink and $5 coffee. Translates to $40 to $65 pp. Will be at 6:30 pm in the July heat and so am wary of patio seating.

      1. Brazillian AYCE. Fogo (closer to strip) vs Texas de Brazil (closer to strip) vs Via Brasil. Some have private rooms. Any comments on any of them in comparison to one another? All seem to have mixed comments. Also Fogo and Texas are chains that have comparable experiences in other cities.

      2. Firefly. Mixed reports on this board for Tapas. Health warnings in 2013, but they seem past that. Food is below my $40-65 food budget. Comments?

      3. Hearthstone. Roast Pig "Whole Beast Feast" looks really good. Have a call in to them to see if they can accomodate my large group and my budget. For now, this seems to be my first choice even though it is out at the Redrock Resort.

      Zinerator - what did you consider and what did you end up doing?

      Thanks all for any help and suggestions.
