    Good afternoon, I have decided to try the cosmopolitan for a few nights. I have never stayed there, I don’t even know if I have even stepped. I’ve been normal a cet player. Looking forward to a nice change. I got free 275 in free play as well. Any advice or things to try?

    Zuma for dinner. It’s excellent!

    It's very casual, but I like Holstein's for lunch. Momofuku ramen (and pork buns!) is excellent as well. Lardo and Hattie B's at the food court are both great. Honestly, it's one of those resorts where there aren't really any bad options.

    The only restaurant that I haven’t been keen on is STK. It was too much like a nightclub that happened to have steak. Similarly priced steaks are better at Prime and Cut

    Zuma is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere. At Lardo I really enjoy their philly the Bronx Bomber. At District I recommend the chicken sliders.

    Sports Book bar is a great spot to catch a game and grind some video poker.

    Agreed. I don't think STK is bad, per se, but it fills a very specific niche. I actually recommended it to a friend recently who was planning a bachelorette party and wanted a steakhouse before they went clubbing, but if you asked me, "Where is the best/nicest steakhouse in Vegas?", STK would definitely not be my answer.

    My favorite at Lardo is the Korean pork shoulder sandwich. I don't eat beef so can't really speak to most of the others, but I thought that one was great. However, I wasn't a big fan of the pork belly gyro; maybe I just caught them on a bad day, but the pork belly seemed incredibly dry to me. Also at Block 16, Ghost Donkey is really interesting, they do this tequila-based variation on a Negroni that is just excellent, and I don't even usually like either tequila or Negronis. The only place at Block 16 I'd really recommend skipping is the sushi place, as you're better-served just going upstairs to Zuma.

    Also, while not at Cosmo, there are a ton of great places at Aria, right next door.

    What about Tekka did you not like? We were thinking about trying it next time as we sometimes want sushi without having to deal with a full service restaurant. Like just a couple of rolls for a snack or small meal.

    It just seemed duplicative of Zuma but not as good. I suppose for the particular purpose you mentioned it's fine -- I certainly didn't think it was "bad" by any means -- but their menu is so limited that I'd just rather go to Zuma.

    I like Rose.rabbit.lie but Im in my mid 40's and as well Scarpetta but I am a very picky eater so not to adventurous on the palette. The juice bar has some great healthy snacks and overlook grill has my favorite acai berry breakfast bowl. Also french toast at the Henry

    I like to eat at the Sportsbook while watching a game and playing VP. I get them to make a wonderful Blackened Chicken Caesar Salad with bacon. Mmmm! Perfect combo of eating and gambling for me.

    Henry burger for me while at the bar. It’s so easy to order from there. No need to leave.

    There will be a line for Egg Slut. Such is life.
    Spend some time at the Chandelier, the Verbana is optional but probably a must-try drink, at least once.
    Breakfast at the Henry
    Ghost Donkey. Trust me.
    The Henry for Breakfast.
    I'm a known Secret Pizza junkie. Try for the white slice and the meatball if it's available.
    Huge fan of the sports book bar, especially for VP, fun people watching and catching games. Usually can find a seat there as well.

    Finally,

    Explore. There are all kinds of art installations and interesting pictures scattered throughout the casino. Fun just to walk around a bit.
