After my post on Joel Robouchon the other day, I decided to check out other famous chefs in Las Vegas who are also offering deals on their meals since it's clear that a $500 meal extravaganza is no longer in vogue as it is replaced by more modest meals under $100.
Even at the Wynn, where the restaurants never have special menus, the Daniel Boulud Brasserie now has a $36 menu; you can enjoy a leisurely meal at one of the prime show watching views at the Lake of Dreams with enough money leftover to play at the casino after dinner. If you are staying at the Encore (as I will be in a few months), Society Cafe has a special $36 menu as well.
If you are mid Strip, try Mario Batali's B&B pre-theater (from 5-6:30pm) menu in the Venetian for $49 which includes appetizer, main and dessert choices which you can enjoy with unlimited wine for an additional $25 per person. If you are a local, go to Spago's in Caesar's for a 25% discount off your entire check.
If you are at the other end of the Strip, Aureole in Mandalay Bay has a 3 course dinner for $75 or 7 courses for $95 (add 7 wines for $160 per person). And the MGM, being the biggest hotel on the strip, also has the most offerings, including menus at Craftsteak for $60, $59 at Shibuya, $45 at SeaBlue, and $39 at Nobhill Tavern.
So many choices, but only one stomach; somehow I will find a way!
