Not so cheap eats anymore according to the recent Zagat survey of local restaurants. Average cost of dinner in Vegas has risen to $32.42 includes one drink, tax & tip, that's up from $25.70 last year and $20.80 in 1997.
The increase in average cost is the direct result of so many new "high-end" restaurants in Vegas, where the actual cost is even higher, at an average of $64.30 for dinner in the 20 most expensive restaurants in Las Vegas.
Picasso at the Bellagio got the top awards in most-popular, service, and decor categories, while Renoir at the Mirage took the top spot in the food category.
Vegas has come a long ways in the restaurant/food business, it now competes with the best cities in the country!
The survey also points to Vegas as big tippers, with an average of 18.4%, tying Long Island, and topped only by New Orleans with 18.7%.
