5 days in Vegas - suggestions, advice?

baderin | May 5, 2010 10:05 AM

My husband and I will be in Vegas for 5 days at the beginning of July. We were there last year and loved it so much we couldn't wait to go back, mainly for the restaurants. We're not hardcore foodies, but obviously enjoy a good meal. Our budget isn't unlimited, I'd rather not spend much more than $100pp including a drink. I'm not a big fan of seafood - I enjoy some lighter fish but nothing too "fishy" (like salmon) or shellfish. That being said, I'm willing to be a little adventurous in the name of good food and it's not like I have allergies or anything.

Last year we were there for 4 days, and hit Craftsteak, Nob Hill, and Daniel Bouloud (as well as some random Italian place that I don't remember the name of). We really enjoyed all 3 of them, and my husband loved Craftsteak so much that he's requested we go back. At all three places, we did some kind of prix fixe menu with app, main and dessert and really enjoyed this option.

So with all that in mind, our plans for this trip are B&B, Bradley Ogden, American Fish, L'Atelier, and Craftsteak again. Anything that you think we'd love instead? I'm not 100% sold on L'Atelier - I have no doubt that it would be incredible but am not sure the experience would be the same without doing a tasting menu (which I'm mostly decided against due to a combination of cost, amount of seafood, and the fact that I'm just not sure I can eat that many courses).

We're also determined to have breakfast at Bouchon (missing that was my big regret from last year) as well as considering the lounge menu at Fleur de Lys, a lunch at Julian Serrano, and maybe a trip to Firefly for lunch. Oh, and lunch at the Taqueira Canonita because as Canadians, we'd like to have some decent Tex Mex (I know this isn't real Mexican food but we enjoy it, and pickings in Toronto are relatively slim).

Thanks for any suggestions or guidance you could give! The whole list, as well as last year's, was developed after extensive reading of this forum, so you guys have already been invaluable.
