Jubilee is one of the few shows I have seen in LV. All those boobs and having to leave sucking my thumb seemed like such a waste.

These are all great suggestions.........thanks and keep 'em coming!

Just a thought: we both like "Americanized" Chinese food. Is there a good place in Chinatown or elsewhere to get a good plate of chow mein, egg foo yung, etc.?

We have a retirement home north of Rainbow and Smoke Ranch ( currently rented out). Any restaurant suggestions up that way? Something like a steakhouse or Italian or All-American.................Any thing good at Suncoast?

Again thanks for your thoughts................

I'm not sure what you mean by Americanized chinese food. I'm from the midwest and have not been able to find anything but bean sprouts with celery and a reddish pork. Am accustomed to Cantonese and I don't think it's out here. There is a wonderful Thai restaurant near your retirement home at the corner of Rainbow and Lake Mead. Southeast corner in a strip mall. Lot of very good things off Sahara; Lakes Lounge, Sienna Trattoria.

I am not sure that it is Americanized enough BUT I really like Cathay House on Spring Mountain in Chinatown.
Cathay House Restaurant - Chinatown - Las Vegas, NV

If you want a place that serves seafood in a very casual environment, you could also try Hot and Spicy Crawfish, also in Chinatown.
Hot N Juicy Crawfish - Smells Like 'Hot N Juicy' in Here!

Also, if you want a white table restaurant at the Cosmopolitan with a great lunch special, they this one for $20.13:

Those are my three ideas.

My favorite Americanized Chinese food place, aside from PF Chang's, is China A GoGo.

Very good nearby spots:

Market Grille (Greek food) on Lake Mead across from the Inn N Out Burger near the US 95 on-ramp.
Windy City Beefs and Dogs further west on Lake Mead in the Von's shopping Center
Northside Nathan's also on Lake Mead. Very yummy deep dish pizza, but it's the wings that I really crave.

We used to have a very good steakhouse named Becker's in the near vicinity, but the recession killed it.

For steak I like Austins' at the Texas Station. I've heard the Charcoal Room at the Sante Fe is good, but I haven't been there.

I haven't been to the Suncoast in a couple of years, so I can't help you out there. There are some really good dining options in the near vicinity of that property though. Let me know if you want more info. I love talking about food.

For steaks, we like Via Brasil

For Italian, we always enjoy Ferraro's.

For "American" Chinese, we agree, going to any town's/city's "chinatown" is what we prefer to do especially when in an unfamiliar place. Here's a definition and examples for those of you who might be wondering what "American" Chinese food might be from Wiki ...click here. I don't necessarily think that a fusion place such as P.F. Changs is what brdd is looking for but I don't know?

We like KJ Kitchen, btw, on Spring Mountain/chinatown (yelp review). Not the best service but the food is good! ...Cantonese style too.

As always, this is only a personal opinion so I'm not opposed for somebody disagreeing with my recommendations.

As a new local (going on 7 months!) i love seeing these restaurant suggestions, especially since they are near my area. Thanks!

We really like Kabuki (Sushi/Hibachi) in Tivoli Village. 10 min drive from retirement home
