The Las Vegas breakfast is often overlooked simply because the haze of the hangover has just set in or your walk of shame prevents you from steeping into a nice place to have the most important meal of the day because the scent of the previous evening is still fresh on your wrinkled nightlife attire. You'll need to change that or you'll miss a life changing meal that will give you the opportunity to view breakfast in Las Vegas in an entirely different way. My good friend and Dallas Food/Travel Writer, Mike Hiller is so cruel to me when it comes to breakfast in Las Vegas that he'll send me pictures of the breakfast at Bouchon at the Venetian. You see, after sending him there for a working breakfast he has been introduced to the art of the morning meal.
Bouchon at Venetian is one of those places where things seem too good. The morning light comes through the windows and I look younger. The service is right in the sweet spot between attentive and overbearing. The food is everything you like but done at a different level. You don't have to expect a drastically different approach to breakfast if you are getting some of your favorites done in such a way that you cannot believe you have deprived yourself for long. That is where my friend Mr. Hiller becomes bitter. He can't just walk in and order the corned beef hash or the sourdough waffles or the Jambon et Oeufs. That guy is stuck in Dallas dreaming of the perfect breakfast.
This is really an open letter to my friend and yours. If you have a friend who decides to send you a photograph of a sticky bun from Bouchon at Venetian the best way to get them back is to walk right in and stuff your face with a cheese danish, the house made maple-apple granola and then wash it down with Bouchon French Toast.
Breakfast in Las Vegas does not need to be ordinary, in fact you should demand that it become extraordinary.
