I was seduced by the price and paying for 6 rooms out here for 8 days.. I am staying at Bally's. I arrived last night around midnight and they were out of rooms.. They put me in a suite and are going to have tough time getting me out of it on Friday.. Does anyone know of any good restaurants in this hotel?

Thanks


Walk next door to the Paris and eat at Mon Ami Gabi. (Am I thinking of the right hotel?)


Yes. The Paris is adjacent to the Bally's.

If that doesn't work, Bellagio is across the street, and there are a number of great places there, including Le Cirque, Michael Mina, Picasso, etc

I always like Olives in the Bellagio. And, of course, The Petrossian for cocktails.

I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

Hmm... Flava Flave.. Who would have thought, the crack head, clock wearing guy from the Militant group Public Enemy, would be that lovable scamp that we have all grown to love. Now he is selling fried chicken. Talk about a 180. I guess, if that "Cop Killer" could now play a cop on t.v, and Ice Cube can be in light hearted rafting comedies, anything can happen.

Tonight we went, on your suggestion to Mon Ami Gabi.. It was a huge success.. Everyone was happy.. i feel like it's one of the rare places in Vegas that doesn't feel like a rip off.. We had a Grand Cru St. Emilion 06 for 75 bucks, a Dover Sole for 35 bucks, it was all so reasonable.. The food was tasty..

We made a reservation for 5.. they tried to stick us inside but, i persisted and got us outside on the street. I ordered the scallop gratin, the steak au poivre rare.. Everything was good. The steak was cooked medium rare.. The scallop gratin were three half scallops, sliced on a bias. Fresh warm french bread..

Everyone was happy. Round tables are always a plus..

Steak.. Pepper sauce was a little A-1'ish.. But the steak was really well seasoned.. Fries were ok. Wine was served cold and the waiter was over pouring to get a second bottle.. They cleared plates before we were all finished.. People inhaled their food, two people lingered. It made me feel uncomfortable but, i was the only one to notice. All in all, it was fine. My party loved the restaurant, they were raving .. This might be a yearly trip to this place.. It worked out to be 350 with tip included on the bill already.

Spirits are high.. Everyone was happy.. Thanks for the suggestion!

How about L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon at MGM? It's a fun experience, esp sitting at the counter.

Second thought - how about VIP seating at Emeril's Stadium ampitheater at Palazzo?

I've only been there for minor events, but during the NCAA men's and women's basketball championships, it should be a total zoo.

Thanks for your suggestions, i like Robochon I just feel like it would be lost on my father and it's too stuff after a long day.. As a non sports fan, Emerils would be too hectic.. I am looking for more ethnic food in Chinatown. I was thinking Honey 1 but, we went Korean last time.. Is there any good Sichaun in Vegas?

Eater Las Vegas has a tidbit in their report about Alex Stratta's NY restaurant closing:

Considering opening a casual place in Las Vegas

Bachelor party. Ten or so guys. Need something in a price range bordering on reasonable. I'm planning on pushing hard for Raku or Lotus of Siam, but I don't think that's a winner - my guess is that there's going to be a strong push for the strip. Shoot.

I think you need to interpret what I'm saying in a reasonable way.

but couldn't you continue the party with the denizens of the lotus of siam parking lot?

Like I said, not a winner.

I'd recommend n9ne in The Palms or Jaleo and STK in The Cosmo. You can go to Raku on your own after everyone else passes out.

Yeh nine steakhouse is good.. I think we coordinated dinner and free passes up to the club on the roof.. But, that could have been at the Rio also.. Most likely is was both.. I have also been to a bachelor party dinner at Del Friscos which was nice.. They give you your own private room. Raku will not work with 10 guys.. Honey 1 Korean BBQ May, or Hot N Juicy Crawfish may be able to handle you guys..
