A little background about myself and my 2 friends who are joining me, we're from NYC, Chinese and adventurous eaters. We're not necessarily seeking steakhouses and Asian food (I know Lotus of Siam is a must go but my friends aren't interested). Preferred amount to spend per head is $40-50 for dinner (willing to make exceptions if the meal is really *that* great); lunch is preferred to be less than dinner and around the Strip.

We are going to stay at the Mandalay. We are not intending to rent a car but willing to hoof it by bus or taxi, if it's worthwhile.

So far what I have in mind within for my meals 4-day stay (during the Easter weekend) in LV generally goes like this (with visits to Jean Phillipe at ARIA and/or Bellagio and Payard since we love our desserts):

Question 1: What are great lunch options to have near or on the Strip? I'm having a hard time finding what seems like good options on the Strip as most hotels seems to not have prix fixes like they do for dinner.

Question 2: Is Mix at Mandalay Bay good or worth spending?

Day 1:
Brunch/lunch: Bouchon Bistro
Dinner: Raku

Day 2:
Lunch: Need lunch option
Dinner: L'Atelier de Robouchon

Day 3:
Lunch: Bellagio buffet (I know buffets are kind of looked down but I want to try)
Dinner: Something light for dinner

Day 4:
Lunch: Mon Ami Gabi?
Dinner: Need dinner option

Thanks in advance for your advice.
