I’m planning a trip from San Francisco to Las Vegas and The Grand Canyon during the Christmas and New Year break. I already made hotel reservations and got tickets for ‘O’ at the Cirque du Soleil. However, I wonder if you may recommend any good restaurant between San Francisco and Las Vegas. It’s a 600 miles journey, so I would like to take it easy to enjoy the trip and arrive relax at destination. Also from San Francisco, to get to the Hwy 5, would you recommend - using Hwy 580 and the Altamont pass, or - using the Hwy 152 and the Pacheco Pass? Do you have any recommendation of good restaurants in Las Vegas? I would like to avoid the ‘ding’ ‘ding’ ‘ding’ noise as must as possible. I noticed for example the Japanese restaurant called Raku-grill, a couple of miles west of the trip, but since I would stay for a week, I’m open to any recommendations. About the Grand Canyon, it’s a 300 miles trip. I will stay at the Grand Canyon Village, but I would be interested knowing any recommendations of good restaurants along the way, even up to Flagstaff or Williams.
