I've been salivating reading all of the amazing Las Vegas restaurant threads and am trying my best to compile a good restaurant mix for our upcoming week visit to Vegas (we'll be there from November 16 - 21). I've been to Vegas several times and have a couple places that I'd like to revisit (LOS, In & Out, Joe's Stone Crab), but more importantly, would like to branch out and try a few new restaurants. A couple things to note: My boyfriend and I will be staying at the Venetian, will be celebrating both of our birthdays and we both love food (be it a hole in the wall to fine dining). We're open to any food genre and as much as I would love to say that price is no object, neither of us can really afford more than $150/per person a meal, especially since we'll be there for a week.
- Bouchon (was going to try breakfast, unless you think dinner would also be a good choice)
- Enoteca (have a restaurant.com certificate I have to use and felt better about the restaurant after reading Uhockey's review
- Alex - would love to try the Taste of Wynn menus (because the prix fixe is out of our budget); do you think it's too late to make a reservation? We're also not huge wine drinkers - will this pose a problem at all? BF tends to drink scotch and I tend to be partial to martinis.
- Mix (another restaurant.com cert, but the menu actually looks pretty robust from the Web site)
- Cafe Ba Ba Reeba
- Raku sounded really interesting (we don't have anything similar in MPLS)
- Mon Ami Gabi - I realize this is not a popular choice, but my BF has never seen the Bellagio fountains and I was thinking this might be a good place for him to be able to see them; I'm definitely open to suggestions if you have a better recommendation.
- Any suggestions for a restaurant with a good scotch menu? I'd like to surprise my BF with a birthday meal and haven't seen too many references to scotch in Vegas.
- Any other lunch/dinner recommendations?
Any thoughts on my list would definitely be appreciated as well as if you have any other recommendations.
Thank you in advance, LV chowhounds!
