Las Vegas: Lunch places downtown?

Our office is relocating down town. Any suggestions for lunch spots? We will be next to the state court house.

need help now (Las Vegas)

Capitol seafood is good. I also recommend Pho Saigon 8. It is on the way home from work for me, so I have probably eaten there close to 100 times over the past few years. I have never been disappointed. We get the normal Pho #12, the lemongrass beef, the beef stew, and the combination fried rice. It is consistently great.

Greek in Vegas

I have tried the restaurant on Durango/Sahara when it was called Romy's, and I was very disappointed. It seemed dirty. Paymons is okay, but not really greek. Mediterranean Cafe is about the same.

Opa's is excellent but on the expensive side. Anything other than Opa? Am I missing out on something on the East side?

Las Vegas Bakeries

The diamond bakery in china town on spring mountain is good.

The little french shop in the sunflower market shopping center at flamingo and rainbow has great bread, croissants and french sweets. This is one of my favorite places because it also has almond/chocolate and chocolate croissants.

Freeds is also good.

If you want a special order cake, I recommend simple elegance in cake design. He is really good, and for fancy cakes, his prices are better than freeds, a little more than leopolds.

Paradise Grill - Peruvian in Las Vegas

No, it was a white fish. I asked the waitress which one she recommended.

You're right. I have never seen another customer inside. It's a little sad because it is a great place.

Paradise Grill - Peruvian in Las Vegas

We have eaten at Paradise Grill twice now. I will go again. The Lomo Saltada is great. The ceviche is good. Today I had a chicken breast braised in a wine sauce. It was great. The pollo a la brasa is really good too.

The food is really cheap. It tastes homemade and has a very "fresh" feel. I think everything is made to order.

Also, they do take out, which I tried for the first time today, and it was great.

They also serve Cusquena beer. A bonus in my mind.

I hope this restaurant makes it. Its very good. If you are looking for peruvian food, I recommend it.
