    So I know we are quite some way out from upcoming trip (59 Days), that doesn't mean we haven't already started making reservations. We try to balance out food choices to cover both "Casual / Easy" options with slightly more upmarket choices. The reason being it's quite difficult to eat well every day, meals can become quite heavy and you lose the sense of something special obtained from going somewhere nice.

    As a result we have the following meal schedule for our trip, thoughts / comments welcomed.

    Saturday - Day One - Arriving late in to LAS so not really considered a day after 18 hours travelling!
    Sunday - Day Two - Jet Lag will still be a factor , as it stands planned for a casual dinner at "The Pantry" at Mirage. Good quality but easy food, great service for a casual place.
    Monday - Henry for Breakfast - Short Rib ! Then Carbone for dinner.
    Tuesday - Wicked Spoon at Cosmo , good quality buffet and personally better than Bachanal.
    Wednesday - Craftsteak , been once before and loved it , can't wait to go back.
    Thursday - Open to suggestions.

    The schedule is still filling out but always looking for new suggestions , especially for light / casual bites that can pad it out a bit!

    I don't think broken record. I've touted Lotus for well over a decade now. And I certainly have my go-back-to off-Strip loop: Marche, Table 34, Ventano, Todd's Unique, Nora's, Vintner Grill. And you and I both miss Rosemary's. I just like to get out and about, and of course I"m not leaving a wad of comps on the table by not dining in-house all the time. But it gets to the point on the Strip that at the higher/high ends in whatever cuisine, it's all rather interchangeable. The look will be different, someone might've had a so-so experience at PRIME or Andre's or Rao and that flips them to Delmonico or Eiffel Tower or Piero's, but it's rather interchangeable (and good, of course).

    Thanks Danny, Lotus for Lunch or Dinner?

    In terms of off-strip, I'm happy to give it a go but I'm not entirely comfortable "Downtown" , personally don't enjoy the vibe. So if it was a cab ride to a venue that's great food I'm happy but would rather steer clear of Freemont. I've heard good things about Andiamo's at the D I think? I'd be more likely to venture off-strip for something that's hard to get in the UK, like good Mexican, BBQ etc.

    Nothing on my list is downtown! lol

    Good Mex all over Vegas, just avoid the swank joints along the Strip that think making guac tableside covers for not doing anything particularly well. lol

    I can't believe people actually plan that far in advance.. I usually figure out where I'm eating day of (or less than hour of for breakfast)

    Craftsteak is one of my favorites. The short-rib there is solid if you're not in the mood for steak (don't know why you wouldn't be in the mood for a steak though)
