Even CEOs Need to Eat at CES

Stocks in this article: LVS MGM WYNN

LAS VEGAS ( TheStreet) -- The world's largest consumer technology trade show, the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show, arrives in Las Vegas this week with about 2,700 exhibitors and a loaded calendar of events.

Not only does it start off with a bang with a preshow keynote address by Steve Ballmer of Microsoft (MSFT); it has an official party Friday night at one of the Strip's hottest night clubs, TAO, and an invitation-only Leaders in Technology dinner that includes a fireside chat with Netflix (NFLX) CEO Reed Hastings and Arianna Huffington, co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post.

There's no doubt with all that's going on you'll need a game plan -- not only for figuring out the next great thing, but for the all-important client meetings. That's where TravelsinTaste comes in: We've compiled the best list for quick, business or fine dining to suit even the busiest CEO's needs.

Las Vegas has a wealth of dining options for people visiting this week for the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show.

For a quiet place to have a power breakfast away from the hustle and bustle, look at MOzen Bistro at the Mandarin Oriental. A play on "Mandarin Oriental" and "Zen," the name is apt, given the restaurant's clean, crisp interior. Here you can start the day with the most important meal and a choice of a variety of eggs, pancakes, granola, fruits or the "Classic American Breakfast" -- two eggs, any style, served with mini Belgian waffles with a caramel-pecan cream, sausage and bacon, a choice of fresh juice and coffee or tea.

If you'd rather stick closer to the action, choose Bouchon at the Venetian (LVS). It's in the same complex as the exhibition halls, but reservations are not taken for breakfast, so make sure to get there early to dine on Thomas Keller's Sourdough Waffles with Tahitian vanilla bean butter or Steak and Eggs including Nueske Farms ham steak, two eggs any style, Lyonnaise potatoes and toast.

You may be too busy for lunch, but if it's just a matter of being unable to tear yourself (or potential clients) away, Bistro CES -- the show's in-house eatery -- is for you. Here you can make full-day reservations for tables for four or 10 before the show, allowing you to meet and network while eating! The reservation gives you access to the buffet with soups, salads and pasta, among other tasty delights.
