Chicago foodie to Vegas--steakhouse help?

emiliewasmyeve | Apr 20, 201404:20 PM

Hey, all.

My wife and I are big Chicago foodies, and we're going to Vegas next weekend for my birthday. It's our second time in Vegas, and we go to stay with/visit my grandparents who live there.

Where we've eaten before: Bouchon, Craftsteak, and a few other places that were just "meh."

This time, here's what's on the agenda:
Julian Serrano (for my bday dinner--missing Barcelona)
Tableau (for a girly brunch with my mother and g'ma)
Heritage Steaks (for the dinner with both grandparents)

I'm not second-guessing Heritage Steaks, as I saw some comments on the boards that it wasn't as good as Craft.

I'm looking for an alternative (and it may be too late, as we go this weekend). Let me first explain that my grandparents are the world's most picky eaters. They are the kind of folks that--bless them--eat those $3.99 buffet kind of meals.

My grandfather is also G-Free, dairy free, and sugar free. So, yeah. Eating out with them is TONS of fun.

Either way, Saturday is their anniversary, and we're forcing them to go. Steakhouses are usually good bets because the food is recognizable to them and most things can be ordered a la carte.

So, any recommendations for something OTHER than Heritage? Or votes to stick with Heritage?

I'd also love to hear about some casual local places that are off of the strip.

Thanks in advance!

Bouchon Bakery,
Julian Serrano Tapas,
Tom Colicchio's Heritage Steak
