one week in Vegas... our first time and looking for a few good meals

Njchicaa | Dec 9, 2012 04:13 PM

Hi everyone. My husband and I will be visiting Vegas for the first time the last week in March aka "spring break". We usually head to Mexico for fish and ceviche on our vacations, but this year it is Las Vegas. We don't go out to dinner a lot in our area because there aren't many good places around us and I can make better food 9 times out of 10. Even if we lived in NYC, Chicago, etc., we wouldn't be people who would normally drop $200-$400 per head on a meal.

We are looking to have a few meals at some nice restaurants. We have absolutely zero interest in Asian or Indian food. I'm thinking primarily steakhouses and Italian...

My thoughts so far are to get reservations at Carnevino, Cut or Delmonico, and Scarpetta. My husband also said today that he wants to do the buffet at the Bellagio as it is supposed to be the best. (???) What are your thoughts on those? Also, how fancy does "fancy" mean when restaurants state that is their dress code? Cocktail dresses for ladies? dresses? A nice shirt and pants? Suits for men or polos and khakis?

Also, do you have any recommendations for less-expensive dinners for the rest of the week? Obviously, we enjoy steaks, Italian, and also Mexican.

Thank you for any input that you guys have!
