    Some of my favorites are

    Le Thai downtown
    Noodles Express Gold Coast
    Hash Hash The Linq
    Raku(sashimi) --Spring Mountain Road
    Vic and Anthony's downtown

    Not knowing your price range or preferences these are a few of my favorite solo spots

    Only here for a couple of days, so I am more interested in feasting on locally-available, great food, than worrying about a budget. When you say downtown, I am guessing you aren't referencing the strip?

    I fixed the typo. :) Where are you staying? Do you have a car to get around or are you looking for a specific area/location?

    Downtown, means Downtown Las Vegas, aka, Old Las Vegas near Fremont Street area.

    There is some amazing food in Las Vegas, but food preferences (ie, steak, seafood, burgers, etc) and some idea of your budget would help you get more/better replies.

    Staying at Marriott Grand Chateau, just across the strip from Aria/Belagio. Did not rent a car for this short trip. Love all types of food, and like trying the foods rated the best by locals.

    Le Thai is worth the uber downtown imo

    Numerous 4*-5* restaurants of every genre within 10 minutes of Grand Chateau

    Hey, super-unleaded, are the downtown restaurants generally open as late as the ones on the strip? I am, at heart, a serious night owl, and this is one of the few cities that understands my internal clock.

    For good stuff nearby, I'd recommend Sage, Julian Serrano and Bardot at Aria and Prime and Le Cirque at Bellagio.

    Oh, and lunch at Milos (Cosmo).

    I have absolutely no idea how to gamble at the tables. I wander aimlessly through the casinos, trying to get close enough to the action to pick up a clue or two, but am always worried I will freak people out by standing too close, behind them, etc. So when I travel to this wonderful city of borrowed happiness, my vice is food. :)
