    We've been to Andiamo's(good), Hugo's Cellar(good), Vic and Anthony's(good, $50 deal is a great deal), Oscar's (ok, overpriced).
    We are looking for something new downtown. What's left for us to try? I can only think of Binion's Ranch Steakhouse? Is it any good and what else is there downtown?

    I have been to Binions several times and I thought it was very good I thought the steaks were on par with Hugo's. It has a great view and I really enjoyed the chicken fried lobster. An old school Vegas Steakhouse.

    Since you've asked about Binion's Steakhouse I'll throw in a question of my own.
    Anybody know what the $20 chef's special consists of?

    Triple George might not be considered high end, but it's very good, imo.

    Chart House @ GN is good, too.

    I think Redwood at the Cal is good. Not the ambience of Hugo's or Andiamo (IMO) but a nice place with good food. I also agree that Binion's steakhouse is good.

    Think we're going to try the Redwood next week, if it's not shut for the refurb.

    I've been to Binions 3-4 times but not in a couple of years. Was there this year and had the Chicken Fried Lobster. I really liked it.

    I think Binions should be your next stop. Its on par with Hugo's and the view is great. This was the first time I was there during daylight hours. The view is incredible. Also, I had a Las Vegas Advisor coupon that gave our table of 4 25% off!

    We ended up eating there. It was good. The deciding factor on which one to pick was that we could use our Bconnected cards to pay for it!

    I told the bartender at MSS that we ate there. He was a bit surprised that it was still open. He said that when it closes they are going to open a high end restaurant in the Pullman room again.

    That is great news. We never tried the restaurant in the Pullman room but heard good things. I wonder if it will be permanent or just a temporary reopening while they finish the overhaul at the Cal.

    My understanding was Redwood would temporarily move to the Pullman location while remodel was being done at Cal location. Then Redwood would move back to Cal.

    Yes, that is how the bartender phrased it too.

    I've heard great things about Triple George and LeThai. One of the downsides about having more comps than you can use is that it's really hard to justify going somewhere you'll have to pay.

    Triple George is worth paying for, IMO. Nice laid back atmosphere, very good food & service and the prices are very reasonable. I hit it every trip, even when I stay on the strip.
