Babymoon in Vegas

My wife and I are due to have our second child in about a week and I have booked a trip to Vegas in November as our first opportunity to get away together. We are going the weekend after Thanksgiving and staying that Friday and Saturday. I learned later (to my dismay) that it only gets up into the low 60s that time of year and so we will be probably not spending time at the pool and instead spending our time eating and drinking. It's my wife's first time to Vegas and only my second. The first time for me was a bachelor party and we didn't do much in the way of fine dining so I have come to this board to sharpen my focus. We both love fine dining and would go to e or Guy Savoy or Joel Robuchen if we could afford it, but we really can't. I was looking for guidance on the best values for fine dining. I'd like to spend no more than $300 for dinner one night and $200 the other night, and that is with a couple bottles of wine and cocktails. We were also looking at going to at least one show. I was leaning towards Ka and she kind of wants to see Love. We are staying at Vdara next to Aria so I was leaning towards restaurants in walking distance. I was thinking Sage for my more expensive night, and Wicked Spoon or the Bellagio buffet the other night. I also saw a post for Charlie Palmer's cut of the week deal and that looked promising. The other restaurants I was considering were Bouchon and the Public House (I brew my own beer). We like all types of food and are looking for a good meal and a fun time. We are in our early 30s. Any help is appreciated.
