Best non-steak/non-French upscale dining options in LV?

phoenikia | Aug 10, 2009 07:32 AM

Mostly interested in moderate-to-upscale restaurants (for me, that means mains up to $50, and set menus/tasting menus up to $100).

I'd like to avoid steakhouses, French food, and seafood that has travelled a great distance.

Would be most interested in recommendations for restaurants serving Southwestern, Mexican,
Asian Fusion, Mediterranean, Contemporary/Continental and American foods.

Does Michael Mina's lobster pot pie taste as good as a lobster pot pie on the East Coast would taste? Are the lobsters flown in fresh, or kept in tanks for a while? I've had a disappointing lobster experience in Palm Desert, and I'm finicky about my crustaceans, so I'm not sure whether i should chance lobster in the desert again.

I am a fan of Puck, Batali and Flay- not sure which restaurants would be my best bets.So far, Mesa Grill, Nobhill Tavern and B&B Ristorante are on my short list- what other restaurants would you include?

Are any dishes in Vegas worth the trip to Vegas?

Thanks for any of your comments, in advance ;-)
