My favorites at pizza rock are the New Yorker with the dollops of ricotta, and the Michigan Ave which is a super thin cracker crust pepperoni. Last time I was there though I tried the Detroit red top and it was excellent!

This.

Except when you go to the casual place, still spend the $100/person surprise buying randoms their food.

GOAT trip to In n Out after canceling at a nice steakhouse is everyone in the party handing the cashier a hundo and telling him to just apply up to $20 (to prevent asshats from being greedy) to all of the orders after yours until it runs out. Or just tell them to charge you for 100 milkshakes and ask them to give a free milkshake to the next 100 people, etc.

Pretty sweet to hang out eating your food and anonymously watching people getting free food and their reactions. Guarantee you'll have more fun doing this than trying to enjoy nice food with a hangover and you'll also have a great story to reminisce about with friends later on. Unlike a decent meal while wasted, you will remember this experience. And you'll make a bunch of people happy.

Where is a good place to get organ meats like liver, kidney and brain, other than the tunnels?

Thanks

Dont think anywhere serves brain and I cant think of a spot that serves kidney but Aburiya Raku has many organ meats under their robata section.

Re: Las Vegas Fine Dining Thread

So, I suppose JG is a decent choice to try out? No major complaints?

No major complaints, but I think it is the most bland boring steakhouse in town. Everything is fine, from the decor to service, to sides, to steak, but I would absolutely not got back there again. There are so many better options considering CUT probably has the best pure steak, Carnevino has the best pasta appetizers in town and has the super aged steaks, Delmonico i love their apps and sides, as well as a great bourbon list. Hell I would even put places like Strip House or Gordan Ramsay Steak above JG as an overall experience.

I put JG well ahead of Carnevino and Delmonico. A lot of it is personal preference. I found the Waygu Beef Carpaccio at JG one of the best apps I've had anywhere in Vegas. Our steak was also killer. I was prepared to hate JG as a CUT loyalist, but it was more impressive than expected.

Have been to Strip House multiple times because of Planet Hollywood food credit and always liked the place. That said, I would say it's a level below JG. But I agree with you that JG feels kind of boring compared to the other places you listed. It's a 'been there, done that' feeling, even though I can't pinpoint why exactly.

This was on my radar this summer but I didn't get a chance to try. Will try next year for sure.
