    Good morning!

    Since booking my next trip to "heaven... I'm in heaven...", I digress... I have been perusing menus and restaurant websites to no end. I was curious of your thoughts for/against some of my findings thus far on the best value for a prixe fixe menu around $100 (give or take) per person. (most likely will skip the wine option in favor of a couple cocktails). No specific occasion for this meal, but I would like to treat family to a great Vegas meal and not walk away dissapointed :nono:

    Sage - $89 Signature tasting menu
    Top of the World - $90 Tasting Menu
    Charlie Palmer's cut of the week - $48! includes bottomless wine?!
    Michael Mina - $68 Sunset menu, $115 Seasonal tasting menu
    Eiffel Tower - $125 Tasting Menu
    Scarpetta - $110 Signature Tasting Menu

    In your experience are these tasting menus "worth it"? If so, which ones have you tried that were memorable?

    Thanks everyone in advance. You all rock! :beer: :thumbsup:

    We had the $68 "Sunset" (pre-theatre) menu at Michael Mina last summer. It was fantastic! I can recommend it. My wife ordered the wine pairing, and I "upgraded" to the Lobster Pot Pie for my entree for something like $37 extra. WORTH EVERY PENNY. I'm serious, it was an amazing dish.

    Some of other diners had ordered caviar, and the servers were pairing that with flutes of Belvedere vodka.


    I cannot say whether this was a better "value" than some of other options but I can recommend Michael Mina if it is in the running. There was another post on here sometime in the recent(?) past on Charlie Palmer's "cut of the week" - that one looked like a great value.

    I've had the Sage tasting menu and I think it's a freaking steal at $89. (Sorry, I haven't had any of the others on your list.)

    If you're looking for a great prix fixe lunch deal, Estiatorio Milos at Cosmo is fantastic and an excellent value at $25-ish.

    Echoing Sage. That is a killer tasting menu. One of my must-dos in Vegas nowadays.

    Another option not mentioned are the prix fixe options at L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon:

    Also excellent and a lot of fun because you can watch things prepared in front of you. I find it nicely interactive.

    Eiffel Tower is also a good choice, but I think not as quality of Sage of L'Atelier. I like Michael Mina a lot, too. Hard to go wrong, but I'm a huge fan of tasting menus. My recommendation is not focusing on whether it's "worth it" so much as just go in, relax, have a good time, enjoy the food, and have fun with the experience.

    I'm going to toss in my vote for Picasso that wasn't on your list.

    I thought the atmosphere, views, service, presentation, food quality, essentially everything was spectacular. To me it was "worth" the 115.

    After seeing the rave reviews for Sage, and looking at that menu I think I need to give it a try. Thanks for the recos! Love this board!

    I will also add Picasso is great. Sit outside if the weather permits

    Oh, yes, how could we forget Picasso? Good mention. Place is an absolute classic. Pure class all the way.
