Where to Eat in Vegas, Thanksgiving Edition

Thanksgiving in Las VegasWe know that Vegas does things differently, but the only difference in Vegas is that they may just be done on a larger scale as far as Thanksgiving goes. If you’re still not sure where to stuff your face, here are a few suggestions:

At the Wynn, Bartolotta Ristorante di Mare offers a four-course meal featuring seared sea scallops with porcini mushrooms and shaved parmigiano, butternut squash ravioli with brown butter and amaretti, oven-roasted wild turkey with chestnuts, sausage, Tuscan cabbage and sage gravy. Frozen torrone sabayon with bitter chocolate and orange is dessert. The price is steep at $95, but if you’re going all-out, it’s well worth it. Reservations are available from 5:30 to 10 p.m.

Over at Aria, Jean Georges Steakhouse an a la carte menu is available in addition to the regular one. On the menu is roasted squash soup, roasted organic turkey served with crispy sweet breads, grilled figs with fresh mozzarella and spiced pumpkin cake.

Finally, a personal favorite of ours, The Buffet at Bellagio. Guests can enjoy a whole roasted free range Tom turkey, or get adventurous with a roasted garlic rubbed Kobe top round, maple seared salmon, or split Alaskan and snow crab legs. Brunch is available Nov. 25-27 from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. and is $32.95 per person. Dinner is served from 3 to 10 p.m. and is $44.95 per person.

We wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

Las Vegas headliner Marie Osmond and dozens of showgirls are protesting resort fees charged at many Las Vegas hotels.

Osmond and the roughly 50 performers from the Jubilee! show at Bally’s Las Vegas hotel-casino marched on the Las Vegas Strip Thursday morning to promote Caesars Entertainment’s no fee policy.

Caesars Entertainment claims its no-fees policy saves travelers $3 million per month. Other hotels charge anywhere from $4.50 to $24.99 per night, according to

Las Vegas resort fees are usually not included in an advertised room rate. They cover hotel amenities ranging from fitness center access and internet service to valet parking.

The event Thursday morning was dubbed a gesture of solidarity with the American consumer.

Magicians Penn & Teller and other entertainers also joined the protest.
