I now live in FLA but I'm a west coast guy deep down inside after having lived in PHX.

Thank you Beach Chick for the suggestions. It seems like a comprehensive list.

I gotta tell you, I appreciate your input and the input of the other folks. When I was lurking back in Nov looking for suggestions for my San Diego trip, I saw a number of your posts in the SD forum and your recommendations were spot on in terms of food and atmosphere. So thank you for that and for this current post.

Do I need to make reservations at Lotus for lunch? I've seen posts where people have done that. My thought that since it is lunch and the crowds are typically less at lunch, there isn't a need for reservations.

After reading what you said about Bacchanal I'll nix it. I like chicken and waffles. I had it for the first time last year at Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles in Inglewood, CA. Is Bouchon's chicken and waffles similar or do they put a different spin on it?

Believe me I agree with you. I thought that it was average at best.

So I just spoke with my sister and she is ok with going to Lotus for lunch on our first day. I'm looking forward to it. However, she will not be joining me for breakfast on Sat bc of her conference but we'll have lunch and she wants to have dinner around 6:00pm before the show.

I'm thinking Delmonico's for lunch on Sat (she love's bread pudding) and something for dinner (not sure).

Maybe all thai'd out isn't the right word. I'm serious about food and I do want to try LOS as both of us love Thai. We could go there on Thursday or Sat for lunch.

Thanks for the welcome. I lurked Chow for all of my previous trips but this is my first thread. I'm not going to do In-n-Out Burger. I ate there enough while I lived in Phoenix.

The menu at Puck's looks good. I did that Secret pizza place is open late. I'll have to think about bc I didn't want anything to heavy after the show.

So Jaleo or Julian Serrano for after the shows?

I'll be in LV for the first time in late July for 3 days/nights. The person I'm going with is coming for a conference and this is her 4th time in LV over the last couple of years. So there are times when I'll be eating by myself, breakfast and one lunch bc of her conference responsibilities.. The budget for breakfast is $25, lunch is $25 and dinner is $45 ex taxes and tips.

Would love to try LOS but we will not have a vehicle. I can take a taxi but I'm all thai'd out after having thai locally and in LA in April of 2012 and Yum Yum Too Thai NYC in late 2011.

My flight arrives on a Thursday at 7:45am and hers at 10:45am.

Day 1:

Breakfast at Bouchon - A lot of people on this board recommend it and we're staying at the Palazzo. I'll be eating by myself.

Lunch at Burger Bar - I orginally had BLT Burger based on recs from the board but I saw some posts about Burger Bar and I looked at the menu and I like what I see. It'll be the two of us. Didn't know the Hubert Keller owns the place.

Dinner - Right now I'm leaning towards Italian and I have Valentino at the Venetian down for now. It'll be the two of us. However, Scarpetta at the Cosmopolitan was brought up by someone here so I've been looking at that. For reference, we ate at RPM Italian in Chicago in Oct and we loved the food and atmosphere there. So a rec that is similar or better would be appreciated.

Day 2 Friday: I'm heading to the Grand Canyon.

Day 3 Saturday: Breakfast at the Bacchanal Buffet. Two of us. Read good things about this buffet and also Wicked Spoon. Anyone have any insight in Bacchanal? I originally had Central down but thought that I should try a buffet on this trip.

Lunch at the Secret pizza place in the Cosmopolitan. She will be with me.

At 7:30pm we're going to Zumanity at New York New York. Would like to do meal after the show but she doesn't want to eat then. So I may end up having a late meal by myself.

Can someone recommend a good late night meal for after the show?

Thanks,
