I'm headed to LV next weekend for a friend's birthday. His choice is to go downtown for dinner. Yes, I know the dining options are far superior on the Strip, but he is the birthday boy, so he wins. We don't have tons of restrictions re: food preferences and price. From some topline searches it looks like Hugo's, Grotto, Firefly, Red Sushi and Second Street Grill are some of the best food downtown. I would appreciate any and all thoughts on those options and recent experiences. We are a bunch of couples in our late 20's-mid 30's from LA, NY and the Midwest and appreciate all great food.
Thanks in advance!
