Anyways, between that, Raku, the noodles at Monta, and this, I think my next trip could be an all Japanese kinda one. I also heard there's a Japanese "Italian" place in the same mall. That one I'm not as sure of.
Thanks for the report.
BR wrote:Raku is an outstanding restaurant, although I rarely hit it on trips to Vegas. As I've noted before, I simply prefer other Asian cuisines and have a hard time missing out on Lotus of Siam, and I often have limited off-strip trips. But do not interpret my preferences as an endorsement of Lotus over Raku (or Kabuto for that matter) - just a matter of preferences. But even despite a couple of dishes that didn't excite me, overall this was a really tremendous meal, with the Agedashi tofu, the fried chicken and the Kobe skirt steak being my three favorite dishes. And returning to the same strip mall two nights in a row, for Raku and Kabuto, made for quite the little trip to Japan (too bad I missed Monta, same strip mall).

Plan on staying mid- strip , not sure where yet.. was thinking Venetian or Bellagio but might take it down a notch to have more eating money.
Thinking of from this list so far== we might have a car and plan to go downtown at least an afternoon and evening:
Bouchon, HHaGG or Hash Hose, Peppermill, Mon Ami, DuPars, Tableau tho its not called that now
Buffet for one meal= Bellagio, Spice World or Wicked Spoon
Lunches and Dinners, have to see whats open for lunch also:
A steak place, but only maybe, cause daughter is pescatarian, and- we live in Chicagoland- do we need to do a steak place really?
Raku, soup dumplings at Beijing Noodle #9, LOS but might bump this for Raku, Kabuto, Ichiza
Sage, Milos (lunch?) Bradley Ogden, Fleur, Michael Mina, Comme Ca, Aureole
Seablue, Nobhill, Bartolotta, American Fish
Obviously have some narrowing down to do. Any thoughts?
Raku over LOS because not all of us are into heat, and Japanese appeals to more of us 3 than probably Thai.

Beijing..9-- Im still trying to eat a soup dumpling in this lifetime and saw they have them- thought it'd be a good place to stop in and try some, even as a snack/non meal time.
Im leaning Raku also.
Any thoughts on any of the lunch/dinner places?

First stop here for ice cream. Many flavors, sweet and not very good. ESL functional.
Last visit ten years ago. Has the formula changed or have we? It seemed far sweeter and with less flavor. Just the custard chocolate and vanilla, not their specialty the Sundaes.

Thanks for the warning, but give me a suggestion. What's a great BBQ joint out there other than Memphis Championship BBQ? Or is that considered a must go place (many I know don't care for it - sorry stevez!)?TonyC wrote:TGIFriday of BBQ.
It's excusable to have such chained things as Grimaldi's and Hash House A-Go Go in Vegas, but I draw that thin red line in front of Lucille's (and Serendipity III).
