I've read some fantastic reviews and opinions on this board, but I am still having trouble putting together a meal plan for my upcoming trip to Vegas. I want to experience many different styles of food.
Here's the deal, there are a few specific meals that I would like to experience. In between those I can live off the $2 All-You-Can-Eat flapjacks at the Riviera. My main issue is that I'm having trouble determining "actual" price for most places. All I know is prices on menus. The six-course at JR reads $180.. but i feel like with wine and tip it's closer to $400, right?
What I've got:
5 days - 4 nights
A foodie wife
About a $1000 food budget
What I want (best possible by budget for each):
A tasting-menu or prix fixe style dinner from a highly rated restuarant
Asian-Dinner (Lotus of Siam?)
Sunday Brunch Buffet
Is there anyone familiar enough with Vegas eats that would be able to find each of these meals (for two) within my budget? The tasting menu is the real kicker. Never done something as extravegant as what I've read... and would really like to experience it.
Looking for any suggestions. If possible please include location and approximate price for each. Thanks to everyone.
