Gee, I bet this is a new one for the Chowhound boards...!!
OK, this is actually a joint birthday dinner for me and my husband (I turn 46 two weeks before he turns 50)-- mid-August (HOT!). We will be staying at the Mirage, so we're center Strip and ready to take a cab as necessary, but we'd like to stay on the Strip (lazy, what can I say?).
-- Romantic ambience (flattering lighting is helpful at our ages)
-- Food quality ranging between superior and heavenly
-- Sommelier that will arrange wine pairings (see "lazy" above, combine with "wine-lushes")
-- Price not necessarily an object, but we're trying to avoid Joël Robuchon excess
-- NO JACKETS REQUIRED (no, we don't mean "only play Phil Collins CDs" [eeewwww!]; dress code cannot exceed "business casual", please)
Flood me with suggestions, oh you generous and wonderful Chowhounds, you! Help me show my wonderful husband how much I love him with some awe-inspiring Vegas grub.
Thanks in advance.
