We will be in Vegas later this month and are looking to sample some of the local food. We are going to try Gordon Ramsey's steak in Paris one night. Any other places that are "must visit" places in Vegas? Thanks!
It's been awhile. Don't know how much help I can be, but until someone comes along... There was an Italian restaurant here that I really liked that closed, called Piero's. Next time I go back to LV, I would like to go there. Hopefully it's the same owner(s).
Some of the most exciting new places are opening in Chinatown(Chada Street) just a few blocks west of the Strip or downtown(Glutton).
Bouchon @ the Venetian, has amazing breakfast. If you really want to do it up right, Robuchon or Guy Savoy.
A couple locals places off the strip are Pasta Mia on Flamingo and Lotus of Siam (mentioned above) on Sahara. Pasta Mia is very good and fairly reasonable and everything there is excellent. If you want, the owner will do a multi course italian meal for you and you can negotiate a price for a decent sized group (maybe a small group too) Lotus of Siam is kinda overpriced but the food is excellent. Both have very nice wine lists. Gabi's at the Paris is very good but I haven't been there in a few years. Smith and Wollenski (south strip) is excellent for steaks and chops. I love Vegas, but then I can beat a couple of the games
