4 Nights - $1000 (food only) - 2 People... HELP!

That is a great point zippyh, I hadn't considered that at all. I will have to look into gratuity requirements for party sizes at the different buffets before choosing. 18% at a SELF-SERVE establishment is pretty ridiculous. Thank you

An exaggeration to show how much I value the opportunity to try a world class tasting menu. Unrealistic considering my other "wants", I know, but... hell I thought it was funny.

Thank you for the info everyone. uhockey... I've been expecting you lol.

I have to ask, outside of this forum, I have heard/seen very little about Sage. Is this a newer restaurant, or just an under-appreciated one?

About the buffets... My mother and her husband will be in town for part of the time. I also have family I will be seeing there. The benefit of a buffet is that it will make a large group of people at least marginally happy.. and that's all I need. I would just like to find the best quality and selection possible when doing so.

And the Tasting Menu is the priority on my list. I just need to have the funds left to be able to cover my other meals that I would like to have. So I would be willing to spend $800 for an out of this world experience if I am able to find great food, in my budget, for the other meals.

Thanks again everyone

My best guesses so far:

A tasting-menu or prix fixe style dinner from a highly rated restuarant - lost on this one (due to price)
Steak- Dinner (CUT or craftsteak)
Dinner Buffet (Wynn)
Asian-Dinner (Lotus of Siam)
Sunday Brunch Buffet (Bellagio)
Sushi-Lunch (No idea)
Burger-Lunch (Burger Bar)
Coffee/Pastry -Breakfast (No idea... good bakery anyone?)

Thoughts?

4 Nights - $1000 (food only) - 2 People... HELP!

I've read some fantastic reviews and opinions on this board, but I am still having trouble putting together a meal plan for my upcoming trip to Vegas. I want to experience many different styles of food.

Here's the deal, there are a few specific meals that I would like to experience. In between those I can live off the $2 All-You-Can-Eat flapjacks at the Riviera. My main issue is that I'm having trouble determining "actual" price for most places. All I know is prices on menus. The six-course at JR reads $180.. but i feel like with wine and tip it's closer to $400, right?

What I've got:
5 days - 4 nights
A foodie wife
About a $1000 food budget

What I want (best possible by budget for each):
A tasting-menu or prix fixe style dinner from a highly rated restuarant
Steak- Dinner
Dinner Buffet
Asian-Dinner (Lotus of Siam?)
Sunday Brunch Buffet
Sushi-Lunch
Burger-Lunch
Coffee/Pastry -Breakfast

Is there anyone familiar enough with Vegas eats that would be able to find each of these meals (for two) within my budget? The tasting menu is the real kicker. Never done something as extravegant as what I've read... and would really like to experience it.

Looking for any suggestions. If possible please include location and approximate price for each. Thanks to everyone.
