Vegas veteran (sort of), need dinner to complement Raku and CarneVino

caraely | May 19, 2011 11:04 PM

Hello you glorious LV chowhounders! I am taking a last-minute celebration trip to Vegas (got a new job, yay, this is my last bit of R&R) over Memorial Day. Arriving Thursday, leaving Sunday. I can't decide where to eat on our last night, Saturday, which will be crowded and crazy (so I want to make a reso even if we cancel it). It's just two of us. Here's the plan:

Thursday: arrive midday, dinner at Raku. (Never been, can't wait!)
Friday: CarneVino (have eaten there before, I love their NY steak so it's a must; I could move this to Saturday if it makes sense)
Saturday: TBD

After Raku and Carnevino, I want something not so steak-focused. I don't want pasta. I'm open to something new. Below are some of the places I've tried over the years, just for reference:

Lotus of Siam (love it, but replaced with Raku on this trip)
Prime
Sapporo
Kokomo's
Onda
Lawry's
Hugo's
Shanghai Lilly
Isla
Diego

I have always wanted to try Rosemary's, but it seems too sleepy for the last night (and another big meal similar to CarneVino). I'd like something fun and energetic that won't be too heavy. Any ideas? We'll be gambling downtown at least one night so it can be strip, off-strip, downtown. Not as far away as Green Valley Ranch but we're expecting to spend on cabs.

Thanks! I'm searching the board but your expertise is appreciated.
