favorite places to eat in Vegas

What are your favorite places to eat in Vegas?

In particular, do you have a favorite Mexican Restaurant? Doesn't have to be on the strip.

Thanks!!

I like the Earl of Sandwich in Planet Hollywood, the Wicked Spoon Buffet in the Cosmopolitan, the Buffet in The Rio.

The Buffet in the Bellagio is excellent also. I can not recommend Mexican as I have never tried any there. Hope this helps.

Another vote for the Bellagio!

PS are you still living in Kailua? I am in a neighboring city.

As for Mexican, honestly, I only know the good "homely very authentic" SoCal ones, and because of that, I just always go to Chipotle if I am not near one of them!

Javiers in Aria is good and a really cool atmosphere. I agree with Hash house A go go, if nothing else just for the experience.

We ate at Jean George at Aria this past weekend and it was by far the best meal that I have ever eaten. Amazing food, great atmosphere and wonderful staff!

On a relative budget, Bouchon Bakery at the Venetian is excellent and pretty cheap for Vegas. We were walking around the Venetian and noticed a bakery that had $9 donuts and $13 single-serving cakes. Then we saw the $3.25 red velvet cupcake with sweet cream cheese topping at Bouchon Bakery and wondered if there was a catch. It was really good and I didn't feel like I got ripped off.

Just in case I wasn't clear, the $9 donuts were not at Bouchon Bakery. There were at some place inside. They had some sort of glittery frosting that made them look almost like jewelry. Otherwise, I think it was just a cake donut underneath all that.

Just last weekend we decided to have fun and drive to Napa Valley. Bought something like $40 worth of stuff at the original Bouchon Bakery, including sandwiches, macarons, bread, and pastries. While I suppose the place had Thomas Keller's pedigree, the prices weren't out of line with what you'd see for similar bakeries with lesser quality. The brioche roll (really a bread roll and not a sweet brioche) was actually quite good for $1.50. The large macarons were $3.25 and 3" in diameter. While I suppose there's a lot of people who rail against Thomas Keller for his high prices, his bakeries provide excellent value.

The line was well out the door. I was talking to the couple ahead of me, and they said that they had been to one of the locations in Manhattan, where there was no line. I said the same about Vegas.
