chicago hound going to vegas

Hi All,

We're going to Vegas in mid-March and I've scoured the many threads and have come up with a few on my shortlist. I need to stick to the $150-200 range (assuming one glass of wine each for dinner, no bottles). Can any of you Vegas veterans cue me in to any missteps?

We're staying at the Bellagio and will probably spend most of the time we're not eating at the pool there...

Sat night- Dinner at Olives

Sun Brunch- Need some help here. Totally flummoxed. Big steakhouse dinner that night so I'm not sure how much food we want to consume. That might rule out a buffet, or maybe not. Any buffet recs? Wynn perhaps? The Paris brunch buffet would be convenient and right across the street but reviews seem to be really mixed. Thought of Bouchon for brunch but we're going there later in the week. How about Mesa Grill at Caesar's?
I think what I'm really looking for are a couple of wonderful pastries and some champagne cocktails... help!

Sun night- Dinner at Emeril's Delmonico Steakhouse (I know reviews are somewhat mixed, but we've both been craving a New Orleans fix lately)-- does anyone know what the steak prices are like? I'm assuming $40-$60, is that about right?

Mon- I've kept this day unscripted, as we want some spontaneity. Of course what I really want is L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon, but I don't think we can afford it this time around.

Does anyone know if it's possible to go to Mix for a couple of drinks and an appetizer or two? The decor looks stunning. If not, perhaps a lounge with good food for some nibbling?

Of course, this might be the day to try a buffet, most likely the Wynn

Tuesday Night- Dinner at Bouchon. I'm really looking forward to this one.

I'm skipping B&B as I love Babbo's and most people seem to think this one doesn't quite match up. Might be silly but I don't want to tarnish that image of Babbo's perfection I have in my head! Thought about Craftsteak too but went with Delmonico instead b/c of the aforementioned Nola fix.

Thanks so much!
