Vegas suggestions for first-time visitor, long time chowhound

nyla06 | Jun 15, 2006 02:50 PM

My BF and I are going to vegas on a little 5-night celebration vacation. We want to make sure to get a good range of dining experiences, but also want to be relatively frugal. We have, maybe, one or two dinners to go all out, a couple of mid-priced meals, and then we are also looking for a few good deals. I travel a lot to NYC and New Orleans, so I don't want to visit places like Commanders/Delmonico/NOBU that I could enjoy in other cities. Here are my thoughts, and any feedback would be so incredibly appreciated.

Also, we are going midweek, if that makes a difference. And we are willing to try apps and drinks at the bar, or go for lunch, to try great expensive places.

For our all-out meals:
-Picasso (we'll call the first day reservations are open to get a view of the fountain)
-Fleur de Lys

Other meal options
-Rosemarys (we'll have a car for one day)

-Aladdin or Paris

We are staying at the Venetian, and will definitely be doing Bouchon for bfast. Any other places in there to try?

Thanks so much!
