Steve Wynn is vegan, so if you want to eat there, that's not far from the MGM. I ate at the Strattus (sp?) and it was nice. I am not vegan, so I just ordered off the regular menu. All of the restaurants at Wynn properties have a vegan menu if you ask for it.<br><br>
What's the occasion for your visit?

I had heard of Steve Wynn but didn't know where his hotels were on the strip. It's my first visit to vegas so I will have to do some research soon.<br><br>
Occasion? Holiday - we are in Santa Monica/LA first for a week - and from what I have read there will be loads of choice there for vegan food. I have heard that a lot of the hotels have buffet meals, but I am reluctant to pay for a full buffet meal if we have a very limited choice of food there (we are a party of 6 all vegetarian/vegan). So ideally I am looking for restaurants and cafes that cater mainly for veggie-people. I'll be printing off the page that Elaine sent me to, and taking it with me!

Yeah, I thought as much <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I need to check where we are located on the strip compared to other hotels and restaurants - I have been told that it is a long way from one end of the Strip to the other - I'm not sure whether this is true, or whether the person who told me was just lazy (on trip advisor) !<br><br>
Maybe I will bump into some of the leaflet-delivering vegan bods while I'm out there - I'll look out for you all anyway <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
