Delimma--Chowhounders help! 60th B-day dinner for Mother-In-Law

Hi All,
I come to you for some much needed help. My mother-in-law has gathered her far flung children for a birthday celebration in Vegas. It is her 60th. My husband and I, as well as his sister and significant other, are more than able to pay for a fabulous dinner out (our last trip to Vegas we got to do the wonderful Alex tasting menu--yum!) and, our tastes trend toward the more extravagant. Here's the problem. My husband's little brother and girlfriend as well as his other sister have little cash to spend. We are already picking up the tab for my mother-in-law's room, tickets, show, dinners, etc., so paying for everyone is out of our price range or we would gladly do that. So after scouring all the boards, internet, etc. I am having trouble coming up with a solution. Where do we go for a nice dinner befitting a 60th celebration on the strip, but where the less cash flush siblings won't feel like they will have a heart attack when the bill comes? My mother-in-law loves French/Asian fusion but French or Asian would do. We are staying at the Signature at the MGM, but that doesn't have to factor in to the decision. If it were my choice we would take her to Alex, Okada, Shibuya, Sage, or the like, but those prices will be too high for some in the group. We would like to stay on the strip. The dinner will be for a party of 8. Any mid-level restaurants with nice ambience where we can hear each other talk and does not feel like it is in a mall or part of a chain? Places like Grand Lux, Cafe Ba Ba Reeba, Buca di Peppo all have outposts in Chicago and are really not what we're looking for. Maybe a place that has a $60- $70 or under per person option or a place where there are both high-end as well as lower priced options? HELP!
Thanks as always,
