    Hi Guys,

    Heading out to Vegas for my 1 Year Anniversary, time flies!

    I'm considering the following options, would love some recommendations , confirmations or challenges to my current list.

    Craftsteak - Been here once , loved it.
    Scarpetta - Love the look of the tasting menu
    Carbone - Currently got a reservation and the Wife's preference but no idea on quality?
    Sage - Again for the tasting menu

    Love your thoughts , price wise happy to spend up to $500 total so anything in that range works.

    For a one year anniversary, I would suggest Charlie Palmers at MB.

    Personally, for anniversary and special occasion dinners, I prefer French food. It's just sexier.

    But, if you're into Italian and/or Steak, so be it.

    I love Scarpetta. They have a great dining room and tables set up next to the windows to watch the fountains go off.

    I have never tried the others. But, if you've had a great experience at Craftsteak and you both really enjoy steak, why not give that another whirl?

    That's funny, sea, I was going to say the same thing. We love steak and steakeries -- in fact I'll be roasting a 3.5 pound ribeye tonight for us -- but, and I don't mean this to sound snooty, chophouse doesn't scream that kind of special to us. That's just us. (And another shout out here for Charlie Palmer). I know a Bouchon or Alize or Andre's or DB Brasserie, depending on the type of "French" experience desired, would better suit our interests.

    If this is where your wife wants to I'd do that.. Haven't been yet, but I hear good things.. More expensive than even Sinatra though...

    Thanks guys. The wife isn't into to exotic foods, has a fairly plain pallet and loves italian food. I think I'm between scarpetta and carbone, should I consider Sinatra instead?

    Like I said I haven't been to carbone, but I've never had a bad meal at Sinatra.. I would guess it's pretty much a toss up so I would choose based on where I happened to be before/after dinner..

    We didn't go there gobs of times, but one of our plays over the years has been Piero's. But you're not going to go wrong with this gang's suggestions. Happy anniversary.

    (And just a $0.02 moment ... I've always thought "French" is wrongly accused of being somehow stuffy or overly ornate. Some joints might adopt such airs but the food itself is about as simple as it comes.)

    I've always found french to be overly complex , or at least using tastes / ingredients that I just don't enjoy. I'd much rather have simpler food done to a fantastic standard , scallops, oysters, great italian etc.
