Getting married in Vegas and bringing my 21 year old son and my fiance's 20 year old daughter. All foodies- 4 nights

Just the 4 of us- 2nd marriage for both. We'd actually prefer something more interesting than a steakhouse, a place that's pretty and has amazing, interesting food.

Thanks, I looked into Sage (we're staying at Aria) & unfortunately, they're going to be closed while we're there. Other restaurants like this that you could recommend would be appreciated!

We would like a variety of fine dining and cool, fun restaurants for brunch and dinner. We will definitely be going to Lotus of Siam and need at least 1 fabulous restaurant for the wedding evening for under $200 per person.

Thanks in advance!

Need help- after 17 years, my boyfriend and I have gotten engaged. We're planning on keeping it very low key- courthouse and then a wonderful dinner with both of our 20 year old foodies (his daughter, my son) We would like a special place with great food, not too stuffy.
Thanks for your help!

Thanks for the quick responses! I've actually decided on Dressler- I've spoken to a lot of people that have gone there and love it. I can only get 9:30 res. at Locanda Verde so we'll try that another night.
Thanks again.

Hi,

Boyfriend's B'day dinner with my 19 year old son and his 19 year old daughter. We love restaurants like Marc Forgione, Vinegar Hill and Colonie.

Your thoughts please?

Recette, Peasant or Locande Verde?

Boyfriend's birthday dinner with my 19 year old son & his 18 year old daughter. We're all foodies and have been to a lot of the top restaurants. We just ate at Marc Forgione for my b'day and loved it! I'm looking for something along those lines- preferably downtown. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm actually thinking about Recette for my boyfriend's b'day dinner. It's between that & Locande Verde.

Colonie is fantastic!!! I've been there for brunch and dinner & both were great, but dinner was outstanding. I highly recommend it.

trying to narrow it down for 2 dinners, 1 b'fast or lunch, 1 Sunday brunch.....

Thanks Charlie, I'll keep August & consider Herbsaint. You're right, I have been to Commander's for brunch, so I was looking for something a little different.

Have dinner res. at August & Brigtsens's & Sunday Brunch res. at Mr.B's.
However- I'm reconsidering because I've gotten mixed reviews on all and August may be more formal than I'd like. Now considering the following-

dinner- Bayona, Emerill's, Patois, Herbsaint, Coquette, Lilette,

brunch- Ralph's on the Park, Coquette, Cafe Atchafalaya or stick with Mr. B's?

B'fast- Stanley

Weekend with our Tulane student

Sorry to drive you crazy, but I have been reading mixed reviews about August and I don't think we want anything that formal. I could cancel both Brigtsens & August & do Emeril's, Bayonna, Patois, Lilette or Coquette. Your thoughts?

Thanks so much Bill. I hadn't heard about Ralph's on the Park- I may check it out & now I'm 2nd guessing my dinner choices & I'm considering Stella! & MiLa. I feel like I need to plan another trip already!

I just made brunch res. at Mr. B's on Sunday. Would also like someplace casual for Sat. b'fast or lunch. We went to Luke's last time and really like it, esp. the bread pudding.

Will be in NOLA for a weekend this month. Made res. for Fri night at Brigtsens & August for Sat. night.
Also heard good things about HerbSaint, Le Floret, Stella MiLa & Bayona. Would also appreciate some suggestions for lunch on Sat. & Brunch on Sunday. We're visiting a very hungry Tulane student!!

My boyfriend and I are going to visit my son for a weekend later this month. We've been to NOLA a few times in the past & have eaten at some of the major tourist places. This time I'm thinking about Brigtsens for Fri. night dinner & August for Sat. night. I was also reading about Mila, Stella, Bayona, Herbsaint and am VERY confused. Went to Luke's last time for brunch and would love some brunch and lunch recs. Thanks for your help.

The Standard, DBGB, Waverly Inn, Minetta Tavern?

I'd say around $50 per person. We were thinking of Shang because we all watch Top Masters. What about Perry Street or what else would you recommend?

Sorry for the confusion, the birthday dinner is for my 46 year old boyfriend, his 17 year old daughter and my 18 year old son. My boyfriend just took the 4 of us to WD-50 and we loved it. I'm looking for a cool, good restaurant, though not quite as expensive. I'm also considering Shang and Perry Street. I made reservations for Father's Day for brunch at DBDG's. Thoughts?
