Where can I get a great bread basket with my lunch in Vegas?

    Mesa Grill (Caesar's) has a pretty good bread basket, usually with some choices on the sweeter side. Olives (Bellagio), while not the greatest food, serves some tasty and addictive olive spreads with their foccacia and crackery flatbreads.

      Believe it or not, I'm a big fan of the bread basket at Spago. All of the bread is made in-house but the flatbread is outstanding. They serve a ramekin of goat cheese with drizzled olive oil and roasted peppers with the bread. Fantastic! It's also a great lunch spot. Great place to people watch and it's commonly known as the "power lunch" crowd. Lots of movers & shakers seen in the dining room on a daily basis.

        I have to agree with this. Our dinner at Spago was ok, not bad. But we raved about that bread basket for days. The goat cheese spread was so unexpected and different than anything we'd ever been served before with bread. The highlight of our meal.

        Loved Mesa Grill's breads too. Nice assortment, obviously the cornbread is a winner. And Olives flatbreads are darn good too with that olive spread.

        Thanks for the suggestions!

        Didn't get a chance to go to Mesa but I liked the bread basket at Spago. The flatbread was delicious. It also had a spicy kick to it which I loved. The table behind has liked it so much they requested a basket of just the flatbread. I also liked the soft dinner rolls that came in the bread basket.

        The pizza at Spago was also really good. The thin crust on the pizza was tender but also slightly crunchy. Delicious!
