Where do get a plate of fresh pasta

Hi Chowhound.

I'm attempting to make my own fresh egg pasta. But before I do, I want to taste a top notch dish made with fresh pasta so I know what I'm suppose to aim for.

Where can I eat such a perfect dish?

Thank you.

Need help - 4.5 days in Vegas

Hi Chowhounds. I need some help planning my visit to Vegas at the end of this month.

I have 4.5 days. I have 2 breakfasts (Saturday and Sunday), 4 lunches and 4 dinners. I will be staying at Aria.

I'd like to go to Bouchon once. I'm open to anytime of cuisine except Asian (unless it's amazing like in Masa that good? is Jean Georges Steakhouse any good?)

Day 0: Arrive at 10:30PM (foodie dinner?)
Day 1: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner - 2 people all meals
Day 2: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner - 2 people all meals
Day 3: Lunch (alone), Dinner
Day 4: Lunch (alone), Dinner
Day 5: Lunch (alone)

I've seen the 50 Essential Restaurants (Huntington Press) but I can't decided at all. I'd like to keep the dinners to under $120 for 2. Maybe one night we can go all out.

I've been to Burger Bar (LV), Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill (LV), Colicchio and Sons (NYC), Sushi Samba (NYC)

Mandys salads

I've had it a few times. The salads are big and tasty. I work in old port and $10 is about the price to pay for a meal. Their sandwiches are good too but may not be sufficient with a bigger appetite. I love the fact you can order online and deliver relatively fast

Midnight Stack

Where to get...

There's boustan, banquise......where else...
