    Dellas for breakfast is great. Very fresh food. Burger Bar has great shakes. I also love the slot selection in the HL slot room. The views from the rooms are awesome.

    I love the peaceful vibe the Delano has.

    Fleur is great!

    I love the Irish Pub between Mandalay and Luxor they always have live music and cold beer.

    Good selection of restaurants and the pool isn't too bad...

    StripSteak, my favorite steakhouse in Vegas

    The Sports Book, also my favorite in Vegas

    The topless statue near the Convention Center, outside StripSteak -- there always seem to be funny photo ops happening there

    I enjoy eating at the bar at Fleur. Rx Boiler room is also a cool place to check out. And the Foundation Room has great music and a great view.

    I like Citizens Kitchen at MB. Food is always good and lots of it.

    Closed, unfortunately, for years. I believe Fleur closed as well with Hubert Keller's departure from MB. Foundation Room is gorgeous, but make sure you check the menu; there are a bunch of things on the menu that I really enjoyed but were taken off.

    I haven't been up there in a couple months, but last time it wasn't yet open. But it's a great space, though. I also loved the bunch of Taylor Swift-themed cocktails in a James Bond-themed lounge.

    To answer the question, I'm actually not sure I could name an MB restaurant I'm currently a fan of. Red Square was great, but that closed, and I was completely underwhelmed by Lupo. I recall liking the noodle place and Kumi.

    I'm fully intending on re-familiarising myself with MB later this summer.

    StripSteak is a lock (reservation already made)
    Citizens will happen a few times, I'm sure
    Lupo will probably happen for cocktails, beer and Happy Hour food (maybe a MV 2-4-1 entree)
    Dellas will happen (but it might be on the way to bed....)
    Border Grill maybe for brunch (golf probably going to make this iffy)
    Charlie Palmers if my travel buddy is doing other things (cut of the week is a DEAL)

    I'm only going for a week, so I doubt I can get to any more than that, with plenty of plans for other meals elsewhere, I try and make every meal count and keep the food court grazing to a minimum, but Burger Bar might get a visit and if I'm skipping a meal for golf, a pizza slice or whatever from the food court has been known to happen

    MyVegas will provide some freeplay and some shark reef tickets, I've never been (got as close as seeing a long line once and bailed)

    Skyfall more likely than Foundation Room, if I understand the vibe correctly (more of a relaxed lounge, not a clubby feel?)

    Can anyone recommend the right bar there to be in for a craft beer enthusiast?

    I read that Charlie Palmer is closed for good there. Supper bummed because I always wanted to try it and never did.

    Website says 'temporarily' but who knows on that. The cut of the week (prix fixe menu) was an incredible deal - I didn't eat there often enough, but when you are centre strip or further north, FourSeasons isn't the first place that usually sprang to mind.

    Edit: Looking at Charlie Palmer website, encouraging signs that it will be re-opening in Vegas.

    I've eaten at Charlie Palmers twice and both times was quite disappointed in service and quality of meat. And the fact you could only charge back to Mandalay Bay and not other Mlie properties made it annoying.

    Interested to hear, did you have the cut of the week or oder off the full menu? Most of the time the cut of the week deal has been a fine order for me, but once or twice I ordered off the full menu as I didn't care for the fixed menu, seemed on par with a lot of other steakhouses without being a runaway winner.

    And bumping for anyone that can steer me towards a decent bar on or near the casino floor please that carries a decent selection of IPAs/craft beers? TIA!

    I thoroughly enjoyed Charlie Palmer Cut of the week. It was fantastic and the best meal on property.
