LV- Ham & Cheese Croissants

dbug31 Aug 19, 2007 07:53 PM

Where might I find one of these tasty delights?

If it comes to it, I can buy some from WF's & put the ham & cheese on myself.
It's just not quite the same though.

TIA

    If you were to drop me on the Strip and tell me to go find the nearest ham and cheese croissant, I'd make a beeline for the Paris hotel. I'm positive that Lenôtre inside the Paris has them. I didn't see them with my own eyes when I went last, but I wasn't really looking for them, and they have darn near every other kind of French pastry I could imagine, so a ham and cheese croissant is hardly a stretch. Bouchon Bakery at the Venetian is a pretty solid bet, and from what I've heard, if they have them they'll be way better than the ones at Lenôtre. I was a bit dismayed with the pastry I had from Lenôtre; while the pain au chocolat was utterly delicious, I expect croissant pastries to practically explode in a shower of flaky crumbs, and it held very firmly together. Good news for business-suited executives going to conferences down the hall, not such good news for Chowhounds.

    There's also Jean Philippe Patisserie inside the Bellagio, which I can't vouch for either way but would be willing to take a guess that they would have them there.

      I have just returned from a week in Vegas....and yes Bouchon does have savory Croissants... Ham and Cheese included!
      One morning I grabbed a Ham and cheese baguette and shared it w/ my Boss...we were in a rush to get to a conference! It was fabulous ( I could have devoured the entire sandwich!). Bouchon doesn't disappoint~

        Bouchon is one of my favorites, but I've never seen a Ham & Cheese Croissant there. Although, at the time I wasn't looking either. I am most excited to hear that they do! Thanks for the info!

          you can get a ham&cheese croissant at bouchon bakery - i don't think they're available at bouchon.

            Thanks jwn! I suspected that may be the case.

              Looking at their menu, www.bouchonbistro.com, it seems that one can get a ham & cheese BAQUETTE, but not a ham & cheese CROISSANT.

              I did find one local donut shop that makes ham & cheese croissants seemingly on random days. Dee's Donuts.

                Right. They're at Bouchon Bakery. Bouchon itself has nothing to do with this.
