What restaurants have I not been to and need to check out?

Hey CHers, I need your help.

Hoping you can help a Vegas degenerate eater out with some suggestions for places to try this trip. My wife and I are serious foodies, and have been to Vegas 10+ times in the past 3 years. Our favorite places are Raku and Lotus. We've done E by Jose Andres twice, Robuchon and Le Cirque, as well as many of the other highly regarded places. We haven't done any of Picasso, Guy Savoy or Twist, but I've been reading so many poor reviews about Twist lately and Guy Savoy seems awfully expensive when pretty much no one likes it better than Robuchon or E. For $300/pp, I expect Alinea quality.

For this trip, we're there 8 days, and have resos for Raku, Kabuto and Chada Thai, and are super excited for all 3. We'll be doing Bouchon brunch at least once, hitting up Scarpetta (which we really enjoyed last trip), as well as Lotus and Estatoria Milos. Outside of those, the only other place I think we may try is Atelier, since I've been there, but my wife has not.

So, we have lots of empty breakfast/lunch/dinner slots, and most likely we will fill them with 2nd visits to Raku +/- Chada Thai (if as good as advertised).

Regarding food preferences, we're not into foie gras, but otherwise it's pretty much all good. We don't only eat fancy food, $6 bowls of Pho or $2 tacos are fine too. We actually eat lots of burgers, and love Burger Bar at Mandalay. We will eat off strip, as evidenced by all the Spring Mountain places, but take cabs, so no Marche Bacchus type distances. We did used to cab it to Rosemary's when it was open, sad that it closed last year.

I'm toying with the idea of Savoy, but again, it better blow my mind for that price.

We're looking for more places to eat, from cheap to crazy expensive, so long as its delicious. Where should we go?
