first trip to vegas, a few questions.

hello, so this is my first visit to las vegas and i am quite excited as i've not quite experienced the unique culinary culture before. i kind of plan on roaming the strip with my boyfriend and having some snacks and drinks in various places. we're going to a music festival at nights so no long, ceremonious dinners are planned.
we will be in the city from friday afternoon until monday afternoonish. we'll be driving through red rocks on the way in to get some nature in. : )
things i've kind of planned (and this is so loose):
*lotus of siam (obviously?)- any thoughts about the fishcake appetizer with the cucumber salad etc? i liked the idea, but found no reviews online.
*ice pan- im so intrigued by this method of ice cream making.
*luv it frozen custard or nielsens? (maybe both? i lovefrozen dairy)
*viva la arepas
*china poblano
*shaanxi gourmet (should i skip this? we have pretty excellent chinese in the sgv...)

okay, so to begin with, i currently reside in los angeles and so i need some foie gras. what is the foie gras app i need to order, preferably at the bar at an early dinner hour like 5 or 6, nice drinks and a nice view would be a plus. but killer foie gras is key. preferably no tasting menu item recs or entrees, thanks.

also, i would like some really nice views of the city somewhere with reasonable drinks, like not over 15 dollars... and maybe a nice bite at the bar? a couple recs on this? its hard for me to read what's what amongst the cheesy celebrity restaurant silliness.

any other general tips are welcome. thanks so much in advance. can't wait to come see what las vegas is all about.
