New to Chowhound. I've never done fine dining before but decided to try an upscale restaurant for an upcoming trip to Vegas. After readings lots and lots of reviews, I've settled on Alex at Wynn.
I'd love to save as much as possible since I'm on a budget, though obviously, this dinner will have to be a bit of a splurge, so I'm willing to spend extra if it's worth it.
A few questions:
I'm probably going to go for the prix fixe menu for the variety of options at a lower price, but I'm wondering if the Taste of Wynn menu would be just as enjoyable despite the more limited options. Conversely, is the tasting menu worth the $60 extra over prix fixe? Do you get more amuse bouche with the 7-course tasting menu?
In a table for two, can one person get a 3-course menu while the other gets a 7-course menu? Is sharing of plates allowed?
Any recommended seating areas to request? Do window seats have a great view? I'd also like to get great pictures inside the restaurant while seated at our table.
Thanks in advance for your feedback! Sorry for the barrage of questions. I'd love for this to be as memorable as possible since we probably won't have the opportunity (read: budget) for such a splurge for a while. I'll be sure to come back with a review after our trip at the end of the month.
