Drinks. Head to Bound at the Cromwell for inventive cocktails by mixologists that have a passion for great cocktails. Sit at the bar at Franklin at Delano, delanolasvegas.com, for some of the hidden treasures on the wine by the glass menu. Order a specialty cocktail at Fusion at Palazzo, Palazzo.com and be shocked by a casino bar with so much talent at the helm. Stroll to the Vesper at Cosmopolitan for cocktails made by people who really enjoy putting together a cocktail that will leave a long lasting impression.
Dinner. This should be the most important meal of the day and with the choices you have in Las Vegas it is hard to choose just one or two or even three. If you must, consider Carnevino at Palazzo for memorable dry aged steaks and a monster of a wine list, Aureole at Mandalay Bay just so that you can meet a wine angel and Le Cirque at Bellagio for the ultimate in fine dining in a classy setting.
