    My husband and I (and 6 friends) are traveling to Vegas for New Years. We will arrive late on the 29th, and depart mid-afternoon on the 2nd of January.

    Because of a glitch in the CET system when I called my host, I'm getting my offer of $350FP and $350 Resort Credit 2x while I'm there (so a total of $700 each - something about having to book two separate resos, 1 in Dec and 1 in Jan, both of which I have confirmations for).

    Anyhow, I still have my $100 Diamond Dinner Voucher and about $100 in RCs, so we have no excuse not to eat well.

    I know that we are planning on going to Bacchanel (which I loved last time I was there) and the Old Homestead, but I'm looking for other recs for lunch/dinner places (we are not big breakfast eaters).

    I do love Harrah's Oyster Bar, and wasn't a big fan of Gordon Ramseys Steak at Paris. Aside from those restaurants, where would you dine for lunch/dinner (on CET properties) if you weren't worried about paying for it yourself?

    Feedback is appreciated!

    I can't tell if you're staying at Caesar's, but I'm guessing you are based on the restaurants you want to go to. For something a little more casual, I love the Payard Patisserie at Caesar's. My mom and I plan to head there Sunday morning for some crepes. Doesn't have to be breakfasty either, they have amazing ham and gruyere crepes!

    The Gordon Ramsay Pub and Grill that just opened sounds cool. And the Mesa Grill is a must do for me almost every trip.

    Staying at Caesars, but happy to venture out to other CET properties for some variety. Have friends staying at Bally's under husband's TR comp, so we will definitley be moving around.

    I'm using the $100 Diamond voucher at Ruth's Chris this Saturday (Harrah's). I know they have Ruth's Chris here in the Chicago area but I really love their food and I've heard that the Diamond seating is really nice, as they seat you right next to the window so you get the great view of all of the strip.

    I would recommend Nobu, Mesa Grill, Central, Koi at PH for sushi, maybe the Sterling Brunch at Bally's...

    Can recommend Center Cut Steakhouse @ Flamingo (had dinner there twice and loved it) and BurGR @ PHo (the best burger i've ever had).

    Striphouse at PH was one of the best meals I've ever had. Martorano's at Rio is great for Italian food, plus the vibe there is really cool.

    We always try to hit Mon Ami Gabi at least once each time were in Vegas. It is at the Paris.

    My wife and I stayed at Vegas new years, also checking in on the 29th 2 years ago. A word of caution, be aware of much higher prices at the restaurants and buffets. The whole week will be 'holiday prices'. The 24 hour pass will also not be available on some days too. Lines are twice as long as usual and reservations should be made prior to arrival as much as possible.

    Standing in the middle of the strip during the ball drop is pretty cool but as soon as it's over becomes the worlds largest mosh pit. It took my wife and I 45 minutes to walk from harrahs to Paris.

    Trying to find a table or machine to play is an adventure in itself. Have fun.
