The Revenge of...My Upcoming Las Vegas Vacation

LongIslandChef | Sep 1, 2012 11:19 PM

Well, I'm back...In mid January it looks like I'll be taking another one of my week long Vegas trips. Eight days actually, but who is counting? ;-)

Of course since its so early, nothing is finalized yet, but that will start in the next couple weeks(fight, hotel, etc...)

Of course, the most important part is the food!!! Here are the restaurants I know I HAVE to go to.

First, E...No brainer on that one. How early should I e-mail them for a reservation? Three months?

Second, LOS...I might go there a couple times for lunch instead of dinner. Since most of the restaurants I want to go are only open for dinner, I figure this is a good opportunity to fit in two great places in one day.

Third, Raku...I figure thats three no brainers in a row...

Fourth, Sage...I've seen alot of talk on here and other places about this restaurant, have to give it a try...

Fifth, Bouchon...Been to this place everytime I'm in Vegas and love it. Me being me, was even thinking about going there for breakfast/lunch at least 4-5 times just to try a bunch of different dishes. Ditto the remarks about LOS and fitting in two places in one day...

Sixth, Burger Bar...Need to go and get that Rossini burger again. Still think about it four years later. I'll probably end up here late night, not necessarily a main dinner, more of an amazing late night snack...

Pretty good so far, no?

Ok thats the MUST list, here are the other main contenders I'm thinking about: Twist, RM Seafood(upstairs), Botero, Bartolotta, Carnevino, Comme Ca, Todd's Unique(would love to go here but not sure I'd be able to fit in going out of the way for it), M. Mina, was maybe even thinking about trying Hot&Juicy Crawfish and In&Out...

Some days I might even be able to fit in three places if I have lunch, an early dinner and then an around midnight snack. So I need LOTS of great options...

I'll keep you all updated on everything both before(the restaurant reservations) and after(the results)...

Any thoughts would be much appreciated, Thanks!!!
