Boulud vs. Bouchon in Vegas

Climbernat Sep 9, 2008 02:43 PM

I've got a quick question - travelling to Vegas and I need to figure out which place I should go to - Daniel Boulud Brasserie or Bouchon Bistro? I've read through the various posts and opinions seem split.

Or just bypass both of these and go to L'Atelier?

Thoughts? Please?

Thanks so much!

    I cannot vouch to either in terms of experience, yet, but I can legitimately say that the people at Bouchon have been INCREDIBLY accomidating, even offering to make dinner offerings during the breakfast hours due to my limited time schedule and desire to try specific dishes, Quite literally WELL above and beyond what was expected.

      let me preface this by saying that i adore bouchon and am quite fond of boulud. however, i have eaten at L'At several times recently and have found each experience to be nothing short of exceptional. imho breakfast at bouchon, dinner at L'At would not dissappoint.

        Yeah - what palmdoc1 said! I've been to each of these restaurants several times. Despite my high regard for the two B's, L'Atelier is a notch better.

        been to both and I would do Bouchon for breakfast or app's of mussels and champagne at the bar and Daniel Boulud's for dinner..prix fixe dinner is a real bargain, service is excellent and the water show is an added bonus..we bring our own wine/champagne and corkage is around $25.
        Wynn Hotel is spectacular and all of their restaurants are a cut above most on the strip.

          I'd pick Buchon anyday. Great for dinner and breakfast!!! as Agent Foodie said if I has one near me I would eat there AT LEAST twice a week.

            We recently had dinner at L'Atelier and breakfast at Bouchon. Both were excellent. I haven't been to Boulud, so I can't compare, but Bouchon is excellent for breakfast. L'Atelier has counter seating, so the experience is a little different (we enjoyed it), but the food was really good.
