    I'm looking for a little help for quick/cheap eats while staying at the Cosmo next month. I'm thinking the quickest/easiest way is to either go over the pedestrian bridge to the new structure that has Walgreens in it, or cross over at street level in front of Bellagio to get to the Miracle Mile Shops.

    The other alternative is going all the way to Monte Carlo, but these would probably be (drunken) meals where I wouldn't feel like traveling too far from home base.

    I know of the Secret Pizza Place and we'll likely eat there once, but I've heard it's way too busy late night...and it doesn't sound that great for a 10am meal. Anything I'm not thinking of?

    Thanks all

    Pinks across street at PHo, as well as several other options in there, like Earl of Sandwich and more.

    Yeah, Earl was going to be my #1 choice. It's usually quick and easy, and relatively inexpensive. I haven't been disappointed there yet...just wasn't sure if there were any recent additions that I wasn't thinking of. Thanks

    How about Holsteins, great burgers and wings for a decent price and u don't have to leave the hotel. Also super easy to get it to go if u want to eat in your room.

    Go to Estiatorio Milos for happy hour. If I were staying at the Cosmo, I would literally go every day of the trip.

    Milos and Comme Ca have great happy hour specials. I am already planning to do the Milos $22 lunch special this Monday with my parents.

    Good HH specials at Aria nearby as well (Todd English & American Fish).

    Any specific recommendations on food/drinks? I was thinking of doing the $22 lunch anyway. Thanks!

    When I went, I had the meze plate, lavraki, and yogurt martini, and I thought they were all excellent.

    Have 2 people upgrade the lunch, like $10/$15 each, one to the crab cake and one to the grilled octopus. They are so good, I ghost taste them for weeks afterwards.

    Once they took away my tuna burger and started happy hour, it just became happy hour.

    The bread and olive oil here is remarkable.

    I was also going to suggest Michael Mina, too, but I've never been there.

    As for Earl of Sandwich, I thought it fell somewhere below Quiznos. but I have really high standards when it comes to sandwiches.
