    I'm going to Vegas next weekend and I was hoping to get some restaurant recommendations. I've looked at the previous threads, but I'd like to get more recent info. Also, a bunch of restaurants are closed on the 16th/17th, so I have a hard time picking one. I want to find a place for about 100-150 per person with a bottle of wine. I don't mind cheaper, but definitely wouldn't want to spend more than that. Any help would be appreciated. I don't want any steak houses / burgers on this one; I'm looking for something more romantic and light. Thanks!

    I've never been to Guy Savoy, but everyone I know who has ranks it among their best meals ever.

    I recently ate at Sage, and absolutely loved it. Among the best I've had at that price point.

    Bouchon remains one of my "can't miss" destinations when in Vegas.

    If you can get into E, I hear it's awesome. I'm 0 for 2 trying.

    Do people go to Vegas just to eat and gamble?

    Why is that a bad thing?

    And there are shows too, duh. Also, even NYC doesn't have that kind of shopping in such close proximity to eachother.

    Is that $100-150 per person plus wine or wine included?

    Sorry - I assumed price not including wine. Bouchon and Sage - perfect. E and Guy Savoy - over budget.

    Agreed. If you're doing Bouchon's, and they have sweetbreads as an appy that night, make sure to order them. :drool:

    Didn't say it was. Just an honest question. I went when I was younger with my parents. I just remember my sister and I spending a lot of time in our hotel room. And I remember eating spaghetti bolognese at the Bellagio.

    It's certainly not a fun place for children. They tried to make it better for a while, but it detracted from their bread & butter business of vice.

    Might as well, since you're already there. I don't gamble though, I'm going for the latin dance world cup. Thanks for the suggestions everyone!

    You could probably do Aureole Swan Court for $150pp. It's a fairly romantic spot. Remember to request "swan court" when making reservations.
    They're also on restaurant.com so you can probably save some that way too.

    Sage is nice. The sweetbreads at Sage are pretty good. I thought the foie gras brulee was plain nasty. Didn't like the Steak tartare there either.

    I am not an expert for Las Vegas restaurants, but maybe these restaurants could be a possible choice for you:

    Le Cirque at Bellagio
    Picasso at Bellagio
    Bouchon at Venetian (owned by Thomas Keller)

    Bouchon is my favorite place in Vegas. I always go there. Take a pen. They have paper on the tables for you to draw.

    Bouchon is quite good and reasonably priced. An excellent option.

    Also, Bouchon's has $25 corkage. Something to think about if price sensitive. And again have the sweetbreads if on the menu that night.

    Thank you. Might bring a bottle of good wine with me. It will still come out cheaper. I've made a reservation at Bouchon. Thank you, everybody.
