Escape to Sweets Raku from the Strip? & MGM Questions

SanJoseHound | Nov 5, 2013 03:26 PM

I'll be in town this Sunday to Wednesday for a medical software conference that my boss has packed with mandatory activities including meals. We'll be staying at the MGM, no car. I would like to make a trip to Sweets Raku for the foie and sweets, which are 2 of my biggest weaknesses. If I am done with all my work activities by say, 8pm - can I cab it to Sweets Raku and back? Sounds like it is more crowded after 8pm but that is unfortunately the only time I might have free. If there is a long waiting line, do you wait indoors, or is the space small so you have to wait outdoors?

MGM Questions - my boss is not an adventurous eater and although I really enjoyed L'Atelier, I doubt she would. Are there favorites among Pub 1842, Fiamma, Craftsteak & Wolfgang Puck? She is going to want to stay on property for meals.

I would love to escape to Jean Philippe Patisserie, Payard for an almond croissant or even Serendipity if I get the chance. Maybe my only option will be Sugar Factory since they don't close. Wish me luck!
