Hi Vegas Hounds!
We're DC hounds coming to Vegas from Dec 28-Jan 4. We need to know where to chow. We're going there to visit my folks, who moved there over the summer and have only had limited time to check out the various culinary options. Anywhoo, we're staying with them in Henderson, and we'll have transportation, so distance from downtown is no big deal.
Specifics: we're perfectly fine skipping the 'trendy' places or places too loud to hear each other/places that may as well be nightclubs.
Just want good food. No genre or ethnicity limitations.
Want a mix of those great hole-in-the-wall spots and nicer joints for when we venture onto the Strip to see shows.
So far we have a reservation at Firefly, but that's as far as I've gotten.
Also, I'm a classically trained pastry cook, so places with awesome desserts would be appreciated.
thanks in advance, guys. :)
