    I totally agree -- Binion's Steakhouse is a great gem!

    I don`t play a lot of table games but I don`t hear much positive about binion`s when I`m there and I think mickey finnz which is next door to hennesey`s deserves a nod for a great patio/people watching spot also and the foos is pretty darn good especially the wings!

    Binions table games are probably the worst downtown.

    And the steakhouse up top is overpriced and under quality.

    The rest of it is okay I guess.

    Perhaps a better choice for speakeasy would be Mob Bar?

    http://mobbarlv.com/

    Also, no mention of The Flame for a hidden gem? C'mon Man!

    Ummm, The Flame IS mentioned, under "Best Steakhouse, Street Level Division".

    Excellent article, Westie; thanks for posting!

    I like mob bar, but for cocktails I think downtown is better.


    Also, any DT list that doesn't mention Le Thai is incomplete.
