    Bouchon is always good.

    Abriya RAKU Japanese Grill is in the top 3 Japanese restaurants I've ever been to. Authentic, cozy, small, moderately expensive, off the strip. Not sure he'd want to go to a Japanese place in America, but if he feels like it, that's your spot. Get a reservation.

    Not close to high end and its pretty casual but maybe Rao's? Its hard to get into the NY location and the japanese sure do love their spaghetti. And its a short walk across from Bellagio, then right near the front of Cesars. I went once, its just solid typical old school italian food. Its not outstanding, but I'm glad I tried it out at least once for their famed meatballs and spaghetti.

    If you are staying in the Bellagio make sure to put Picasso on your list. Jackets preferred.

    high level guys from a 500 mil company in Japan, probably 100 bucks a head plus wine, but that could go up a little.

    this sounds like it could work. I've done steak with them and sushi, italian sounds good.

    Joe's stone crab in the Cesar forum is another option but its clear on the opposite site of the resort

    At $100 for food only, I'm a big fan of Nob Hill. If iammatt is reading this, he'll shit on it because he thinks Michael Mina is the anti-christ, but Nob Hill has always been solid, has a great wine selection, and has some decent variety. It's in MGM. Aureole in Mandalay might be a good choice as well.

    And I'm currently in love with Sage and JS Tapas in Aria.

    Always wanted to try stone crabs ever since I watched it on the travel channel. I might try it when I go to Vegas on the 9th. [​IMG]

    Been to Seranno's Tapas. The only dish that stands out in my memory was the mass of baby eels.

    I don't have any idea about any other restaurants in Vegas. We visited to Vegas for some official business meeting and we had been to the Eiffel Tower Restaurant. It is really an awesome place and all facilities are superb.

    Its a bit touristy, but I've really enjoyed having dinner outside everytime I've gone to Mon Ami Gabi at Paris. Steak frittes weren't bad.

    Okay, need help. We'll be there two weeks from Friday. So, Friday night is Aquaknox. No foie. Saturday night is Bouchon's. Their foie is a torchon and was not happy with it last time I was there. So where can I walk into for a glass of wine and foie, preferably in the Venetiaon complex? Maybe Pinot Brasserie?

    Go across the street to Guy Savoy. If Alex were still in the Wynn, I'd suggest that... I have not found the dining in the Venetian that exciting.

    Speaking of the Wynn, never been in there. We've got those fancy seats for the early show of Le Reve. Will head over a few hours early to explore. Any good walk in places there to have a glass and some nosh?

    It's very steaky.... La Cave looks good... but as a non-wine drinker, I've never been there. Quite honestly, I do not eat there much, except for the buffet occasionally. I ate at one of the azn places once (not wing lei) and was very underwhelmed. Too bad boulud and takashi yagihashi are no longer there.

    BTW - Bouchon is still my favorite place in Vegas - but I forget it's in the Venetian sometimes.
