An evening at Chef Masa Takayama’s barMASA Japanese restaurant can easily slip into hundreds of dollars. The Toro tartare with caviar is priced at $68 alone. And that’s just an appetizer.

A wine pairing is offered for an additional cost $68.

Bellagio was the first resort that truly put fine dining on the map in Las Vegas, and Michael Mina remains one of the best places to eat in Bellagio. All the Mina classics are here — there’s even a $108 cookbook tasting menu that includes the chef’s famous lobster pot pie — and the caviar parfaits ($195 to $445) are still the city’s ultimate splurge. And given the San Francisco-based Mina’s relationship with California vineyards, there are often tasting menus based around wine — for less than $150, wine included. The staff here is usually aces, whether you’re at a table of high rollers or a solo diner at the bar.
