Sure. Any restaurant that serves their full menu in the bar will serve dessert there.

And tacking on to Fishyak's post- a nice way to do fancy dessert is to go to the Eiffel Tower bar and order the souffle. They have a bunch, and they're great. 40 minute wait, so sidle up, order some drinks and wait for dessert.

Go to Chinatown. The food is 5x better and cheaper than anything at PF Changs.

Man I hate snobs. I love love a good authentic chinese meal. Pf changs isn't that and it doesn't matter. Pf changs is delicious.

Believe it or not, I am not a food snob. Sure, I am passionate about fine dining, but I also love me some Fat Burger. My position is why bother with PF Changs when you save money and you get the added benefit of having better food? Of course if I live next to PF Changs I'd be eating there a lot, but the moment I have to travel a little bit its not on my radar since Chinatown tends to be so good. if you still hate me, it must be for some other reason IMO. ;-)

Re: Las Vegas Casual Dining Thread

Anyone ever tried Todai Sushi at PH? Don't really consider it fine dining... It's a buffet and always packed when I drive by. Prices and reviews look reasonable and yummy. If not, I'll come back with a TR. ($20 lunch and $30 dinner with snow crab legs and if you look around there are $5 coupons).

For the price Todai is pretty poor, though I tend to have an aversion to asian-themed buffets. But Todai seems to bring up the rear in that particular category, especially at that price.

For what it is, it is fine imo. I wouldn't really go out of my way to eat there but it can be a pretty okay, inexpensive and quick option on the strip (and with the potential to be a lot healthier than other buffets). But I do prefer Makino in the Premium Outlets (also a nice excuse to go get my shop on), it is cheaper iirc and has a better selection.

Re: Las Vegas Casual Dining Thread

I went to Todai recently...the sushi there really isn't that good. All of the All You Can Eat places in town are cheaper and all of their sushi quality is better in that it's made when you order it. Todai's sushi just sits out there until someone shoves it into their face. The one really sweet thing about Todai is they have sashimi, and it is delicious. All You Can Eat sushi spots don't ever offer sashimi. So that's the one benefit of Todai, but I would never go there when there are a plethora of great All You Can Eat sushi options in this town, and they all offer much better sushi at a lower price.

Went to Monta Noodle House recently. It was delicious, cheap, and fast. Even though something terrible happened there that had nothing with the restaurant or food, I still have fond memories of eating there, and I will definitely be going back soon. I want to try more things on their (tiny) menu.

I do this at least once a month cause dessert is awesome but I'm always too full after eating a big meal.

Unfortunately, yes. It had, by far, the worst sushi I've ever eaten ---not only in LV, but anywhere in the country.

Monta seems to be one of the favorites of chefs around town, I have got to visit this place for sure!

TT, in the fine dining thread you just posted, with photographs, a one day menu from a restaurant in SPAIN!

Bring a mirror for a "food snob" reality check and cleanup in Aisle "TT." ROFL.
