Recs for: Near LVCC, Mexican, and one splurge meal

Hello, my girlfriend & I are visiting Las Vegas for CES, and will often be at the Convention Center around lunchtime with a desire for a decent meal within walking distance. Price & cuisine don't matter, we just want something more edible than the cafeteria food we have had at LVCC in the past.

In addition, does anyone have recommendations for the best Mexican restaurants in the city? We will be taking a friend out to eat after the convention is over, and will have a rental car at that time. We would prefer not to spend more than around $20-$30pp, not including drinks, on that meal. If there are no good Mexican restaurants in the city, alternative recommendations (not seafood-centric as our friend won't eat seafood) would be appreciated.

Finally, my girlfriend and I would like to have one splurge meal, and are willing to spend $100pp or more for the right restaurant. Reading this board led me to e by Jose Andres (we love molecular gastronomy), but it is booked solid. What are some excellent alternatives? We have tried both Cut & Alex in the past, Cut was not worth it for us , but Alex was a pleasant surprise. It can be on or off the strip.

Thanks in advance!
