Mon Ami Gabi is marking 20 years of being the best French restaurant for people-watching on the Strip. To celebrate, special prix fixe menus are being offered throughout the month of September. A few of the dishes are throwback favorites from over the years and flexibility is the name of the game. When it comes to the main course alone, you get a choice of four entrees for lunch and five for dinner. Whatever you do, just make sure you order creme brulee for dessert and request a table on the Strip-side patio. Cost: $24.95 for lunch; $49.95 for dinner (with an optional add-on of $20 for two glasses of wine or a carafe of St. Germain)
