My beau and I will be spending 5 nights in Vegas beginning Dec. 5th. Vegas has never held much appeal for me (so not a gambler) but I am a foodie so was soothing myself with the thought of Joel Robuchon. Yeah, right. OK, I'd lower myself to "Alex". sigh. Then I began getting an idea of price in Vegas if you want to dine fine. So I'm asking (and Ellenost, I do like your opinions as I run through different posts) is it possible to have a truly wonderful meal for $150 each and if so, where? We will have a car. We both like French, Chinese, Sushi......most anything really, except not so much Greek. We are hoping for one night at a lovely spot, then would be great with dives with great food. I loathe buffets, but maybe they're different in Vegas? (Read in a Chow posting about restaurant.com coupons for $2 but I sure can't find that coupon code!)
We plan on seeing a Cirque de Soleil (the racy one, not my pick!) Other than that, not much seems to be going on when we are there show-wise. I do sound horribly whiney, don't I. I apologize for that. It will be fun when I get there.........am just disappointed in the prices. (I'd pay $250 for a 6 course at Joel's, but my guy says No Way)
Will appreciate any and all help and thank you in advance.
