I'll be staying at THE Hotel at Mandalay Bay for a 5 day stint in a couple of months with a group of 6 people. Previously, we stayed at Bellagio and Venetian. This is our first extended visit to the Mandalay end of the strip.
I'm looking for Chowhound recommendations good for this group of 6 and for smaller sub-groups of 2 for various lunches, snacks, cocktails and dinners over our 5 day stay. We tend to want to remain on foot (THE Hotel, Mandalay Bay, Four Seasons) rather than drive/cab extensively. Any ethnicity or style is good along the whole range of price points. We tend to like more relaxed atmospheres (eg. Olives at Bellagio; Cafe Boulud at Wynn; Bouchon at Venetian) rather than hushed or formal. No sports coats required for men please (Le Cirque).
Thanks much for your thoughts and recommendations.
