My wife and I are landing in Vegas around 1:30 and want to stop for a late lunch on our way to the hotel. I normally would just go to Joe's for some stone crab, but thought there might be a new place for me to try. We are staying at the Wynn, but any recommendations are welcome. We are fine (and might prefer) eating at the bar.
I love Mesa Grill in Caesar's. Nobody else does food like this in Vegas, and Bobby Flay is always a sure bet. There are also a boatload of new "upscale" burger joints in almost every hotel that are connected with various Food Network Chefs-Gordon Ramsay BurGR, Holsteins in the Cosmopolitan, and Bobby's Burger Palace. Burgers are always a good start to Vegas.
Mentioned in this answer:
Society Cafe inside the Wynn has great food at a reasonable price (for resort restaurants). Great hotel choice! Love the Wynn & Encore.
