I need to plan 3 dinners prior to a wedding in Las Vegas. The group is staying at Caesar's, the ages are from 90 to 2, and the bride and groom are late 30's (groom is Italian). Budget allows for expensive (think SW, or lower, rather than Alex,e.g.). Some of us love great restaurants and others are complete non-foodies (think iceberg salad and steak), but I'd like to appeal to the discriminating types without being so gourmet that the others will be uncomfortable.
Saturday night will be 12 people and with most people just arriving that day from a 2-hour diiference in time, staying at the hotel or nearby for a very early (5:30) dinner would be good.
Is Rao's decent? Or Bradley Ogden.
I really want to go to B&B and Bouchon during the trip, but may do that on another night with smaller group).
Sunday night is for 15 and I'm exploring SW Steakhouse for availability, because my husband has been there several times and loves it and the lake may be fun for kids and those who are new to LV, but I'm not crazy about their requirement for a limited menu minimum expenditure per person,and open to other suggestions. Again, we will go for first-seating at 5 or 5:30 because of the 3 kids. Would Bouchon be a better chouce? Or B&B or ??
Tuesday night will be just 8 people, and no 2 year old.
Thanks for helping with suggestions.
I want to stay away from asian, mexican, highly ethnic, places (Italian and French are okay)
