France's Buddha Bar has achieved world fame for its food and its music. The associated Little Buddha in the swanky Palms Casino continues the mystique, albeit with sometimes iffy service. The kitchen produces Pacific Rim wonders such as Korabuta pork pot stickers; wok-fried salt-and-pepper calamari and shrimp; sizzled Alaskan halibut; slow-braised Kobe beef short ribs; and hibachi char-grilled salmon. There's also plenty of great sushi and sashimi. Finish things off with
liquid-center chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream.
