I feel like an idiot for answering, this board reads like one big troll attempt. But here goes nothing...
For your high end dinner, I recommend Blue Ribbon Restaurant at the Cosmopolitan. I've never eaten there but I love their fried chicken, which they sell at their casual dining place in Summerlin. Their restaurant at the Cosmo is much more upscale and much fancier.
As for the "best" fried chicken, that is subjective and open to opinion. I'm not going there. All I'll say is I've been to Yardbird and it's nothing great. I would never recommend it to anyone. YMMV, of course.
Last month we hosted 13 for lunch at the Lotus of Siam on Flamingo. We could not have been better served. Check though to see whether the wine permit has been issued. We didn't know ahead, and a local liquor store in a nearby strip mall did its best, but the Lotus dry whites are phenomenal. Three years ago we had 18 for dinner, this time at the Sahara location. Again, could not have been better served. Both times, no prearranged, strictly from the menu, though we ordered the food for everyone.
Ping Pang Pong moved to the casino side of the escalators and some effort and money was put into the decor. But I didn't have a chance to try it on my last trip. I don't know, for example, if the menu has changed and prices raised. Hope that someone reports back.
Dave, haven't been on our last couple of trips to Vegas. I actually didn't know that they renovated! When was that? They are on the list for the next time though, so if you have been there more recently, do you think it has changed? Thank you.
Raising Cane's is supposedly the fastest growing chain restaurant in the country. They sell chicken fingers. We have a half a dozen places in town that sell chicken fingers. They are in the middle of that pack. Their fingers are ok, but the sides are extremely limited.
I wouldn't go out of my way to get them, particularly in Vegas. Chances are they are coming to your town soon.
With a group, we go to Delmonico’s because of their very friendly corckage policy. Been to Prime many times, most recently about a year age and we weren’t thrilled. Heritage was very good on a couple of occasions but it’s been a couple of years. Our steaks at Cut a couple of years ago were so over seasoned they were nearly inedible. Our best and more recent experience was at Jean George.
They are all, from my experience, over priced and hit or miss. But if you want a steak you certainly have options.
Thanks for recommendations LVI and Michelle. Didn’t see your responses until after the fact because was having connectivity issues with cell phone to net. Ended up going to Del Friscos Wednesday night because got good reviews on yelp and trip advisor. Unfortunately it was a miss. Got the 45 day dry rib eye which was fair. Sides where ok got creamed spinach and there version of a twice backed potato. Liked there wedge salad and butter cake was pretty good for desert. However loud music took away from ambiance and there was an off putting smell in restaurant. Gonna definately check out recommendations for next trip!
