Las Vegas Baby!!

Need to know before you go…

Knowing what types of things you’ll want to do once you arrive will help you determine what to pack. For me I love going to great restaurants and shows. Also, since I want to enjoy the restaurants and eat whatever I want I planned on running for 30 minutes each day. I used my running shoes to walk the strip while my husband was working and wore my heals to dinner and shows. You may be surprised how much you will walk when you are there if you want to explore.

I have to say I was impressed with the number of vegan and vegetarian options available. There is a great website called vegansbaby.com with some great tips for where to eat if you are vegan or vegetarian in Las Vegas. I also love the app HappyCow and their website happy cow.net

We stayed at the Delano again and I really must say I love it! They don’t have a casino, but it is so close to Mandalay Bay you don’t miss it! The restaurant, Della’s Kitchen, is a really good farm to table and I was able to get us fresh squeezed green juices everyday. The Bathhouse Spa is very nice as well! I loved the robes and wished they sold them!!

There is a little shopping area with LUSH and I got some pampering sparkling bath bombs for the room too!

We went to Tom Colicchio’s Craftsteak and I actually couldn’t choose between the salad options so I had one as my appetizer and the other as my entree! We also went to Aureole which has an amazing wine cellar that the wine angels fly in to retrieve the bottle you order! Tres cool! Nobu is my favorite though, more on this one later…

Here are some tips on things you’ll want to check off your list while in Las Vegas.

Nobu at Caesar’s Palace…

We love this restaurant!! It is top quality food that is artistic in presentation. They have vegetarian and vegan options. The Omakase (tasting menu of chef’s selections) is amazing! I had the vegetarian (it may have been vegan actually) and my husband had the chef’s special and we both loved ours!

Great cocktails and wine selection.

According good ole Wikipedia Omakase is a Japanese phrase that means “I’ll leave it up to you”.

Diners “dream” of the dinners at Nobu Matsuhisa’s Japanese “hot spot,” proffering “melt-in-your-mouth” sushi and “mind-blowing” cooked dishes like the “star”-quality miso black cod, plus omakase options; a “helpful” staff distributes everything in a “cool,” “hopping” space ripe for “celeb sightings” – “how could you not love it?

…Zagat

I concur!! We are thrilled that they are opening a Nobu at Phipps Plaza in Buckhead soon!! I’m hoping it is just as good!

Next trip to Vegas I want to see the Beatles LOVE Cirque de Soleil. Did you see this or would you recommend another? Let me know in the comments!
