Thought I would start a separate thread dedicated to the bars and restaurants of Vegas.
I've probably been to the second-most bars and restaurants in Vegas on this forum and previously put up top 10 lists of my favorite bars and restaurants.
Most of the places I go are what would be considered "local" places. I don't venture down to the Strip much for a multitude of reasons.
Feel free to post your thoughts and questions in here and hopefully the cadre of experts and pseudo-experts will chime in.
If you are looking for a primer on restaurants (and bars) I personally recommend the Eating Las Vegas books which come out yearly.
