I'll be in Vegas for 5 nights - already have 2 nights covered: 1) e by Jose Andres, and 2) Raku. So I need help with 3 dinners.
Is there anything new on the strip that's noteworthy? We'd prefer contemporary/unique over old fashioned, and we're seeking a more upbeat atmosphere as opposed to something quiet. But food has to be really good. And it doesn't have to be expensive (would prefer less expensive, if possible). L'Atelier would fit the bill in terms of atmosphere, but been there and thought it was merely good to very good, so not sure we want to return. Is Guy Savoy's bar area still serving dinner? I can't find any internet links . . . what's it like? I might return to Sage because my dining companion has not been and I really enjoyed my first meal there. Also, we probably don't want to go to a steakhouse.
We might also add one more off-strip meal. We're probably going to skip Lotus of Siam - been there many times and we have great Thai in Chicago where I'm from. Since we're going to Raku, we'll skip Ichiza. Is there anything else off the strip that's particularly good for dinner in a Raku/Lotus/Ichiza way?
Finally, anyone been to Red 8 or Beijing Noodle No. 9 recently? Which do you prefer?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
