Unlike at some Korean BBQ spots, you don’t have to cook your own food at Best Friend - probably for the best since their drinks are strong, which isn’t exactly a recipe for success with a hot grill. The menu is a little all over the place, and can only be described by “LA-meets-Korea-meets-Vegas” - which means things like Kogi short rib tacos from the “LA Sht” part of the menu and a 34-oz bone-in ribeye from the "Vegas Sht" section. There’s also a fully-functioning bodega you walk through to get to the dining room, and it’s where you should pick up a slushie to go as you leave.

Mott 32

Mott 32 in the Venetian works just as well for a blowout Chinese dinner as it does for a reasonably-priced meal of dim sum at Happy Hour.

Lamaii review image

Lamaii is one of our favorite places to eat spicy Thai food, especially since the Chinatown spot looks like a chandelier store.

When you want to completely ball out, make a reservation far in advance for Sterling Brunch, a $125 crazy upscale buffet in Bally’s.
