I have heard a lot about Bouchon Bistro – Thomas Keller’s restaurant at the Venetian – and we decided to try it out for our first breakfast in Vegas.
It is hidden away in the Venezia Lobby (up a few floors from the main lobby) and is actually quite difficult to find. My best advice is to follow the signs in the Venetian casino and when you think you have hit guest rooms, you are about there! It is really worth seeking this place out.
The decor is very French – dark wood, lovely art, and precise table settings. A really airy and bright atmosphere, with staff bustling about in pressed uniforms. So much attention to detail here, and wonderful service.
David’s favourite breakfast food is Eggs Benedict – and he really enjoyed this version, as well as his side of maple glazed bacon. It was a perfect balance of savoury and sweet, with just the right crunch.
I chose the omelette of the day – sausage, cheese and spinach – so light and fluffy. The greens that accompanied it were really lovely, as well as the toasted brioche. Think buttery goodness, coming from inside the bread.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the thing that really blew us away – the coffee! It was perfection, and as we were preparing to leave, David was offered another cup to go (at no extra charge). I don’t know why, but that really impressed me.
Highly recommend seeking out this gem at the Venetian!
