Vegas on the Cheap

Skip the buffet and save big at the Strip's best restaurants

In Las Vegas, where temperatures are more than 100 degrees and nightly room rates are less than $100 right now, nearly every fine-dining restaurant in the city has introduced an off-season deal to bring high-end cuisine to the masses.

Alex It doesn't get much more ornate than Alessandro Stratta's Belle Epoque dining room (pictured), where the Taste of Wynn menu goes for $89 and includes dishes such as scallops with polenta and sweet sausage, Wagyu beef with bordelaise sauce, and desserts by the masterful pastry chef Jenifer Witte. 3131 Las Vegas Blvd. S.; 702-248-3463 or wynnlasvegas.com

Andre's Andre Rochat shuttered his downtown restaurant this spring, but his eponymous spot at the Monte Carlo has gotten a makeover. The restaurant offers a $45 prix-fixe menu that's served early (5:30 to 7 p.m.) and late (after 9 p.m.), as well as a Sunday night wine deal: All wines, Cognacs and Armagnacs are half-priced. 3770 Las Vegas Blvd.; 702-798-7151 or andrelv.com

Guy Savoy A typical meal at this formal French restaurant can easily run four hours. But now there's the TGV, an abbreviated three-course menu ($140) named after France's high-speed train. Opt for Mr. Savoy's legendary dishes, like the artichoke-and-truffle soup and crispy veal sweetbreads. 3570 Las Vegas Blvd. S.; 877-346-4642 or guysavoy.com

Joël Robuchon at the Mansion "Les Selections Gastronomiques" are a series of menus at chef Robuchon's flagship restaurant that range in price from $89 to $195, starting with osetra caviar and including up to six courses. Save room for a selection from the dessert cart, which has an epic array of petit fours, truffles, candies and ice creams. A more wallet-friendly option is available next door, at Robuchon's L'Atelier, where the pretheater "L'Unique" ($39) menu is served in a bento box-style presentation. 3799 Las Vegas Blvd. S.; 702-891-7925 or mgmgrand.com
