Rosemary's vs. B and B vs. Bouchon

  • 9

I'll be in LV by myself next week and am planning 3 dinners. When I'm by myself, I generally prefer eating at a bar. I currently have reservations At L'atelier de Joel, La Cirque (do they have dining at the bar?), and I'm trying to decide between Rosemary's, B and B, and Bouchon. Any thoughts?

  1. Well I'm in Vegas by myself next week and I managed to snag a reservation at e by jose andres. Just emailed them last Wed and got a reservation for this Thur. Apparently Cutlet will be there at the same time as me - so it's going to be a Chowhound reunion. Meanwhile I found the bar at Rosemarys to be very convivial and you get the full service at the bar just as if you were sitting at a table.

      Unfortunately, I'll be there Sun, Mon & Tues and e is not open those nights. Nevertheless, I tend to enjoy more classic cuisines, and e just might be a bit too "cutting-edge" for my taste, although I'm not sure.

    2. Of those my choice would be bouchon. I've eaten at all three and would give the nod to bouchon on food.

      1. Between Bouchon and B&B I'd definitely go with Bouchon.

          Put me down for Bouchon too. I haven't been to B&B but I've been to Babbo twice. It's good. But you can't top Keller. :)

          1. re: Heeney

            My vote goes to Rosemary's. Though it's something of a shlep to get there from The Strip (if that's where you're staying). If you like classic, Rosemary's does classic just right. At the bar - or the small tables near the bar - you can order either from the bar menu or the main menu. I've never taken a bad mouthful in either bar or main room. And, as someone has mentioned, it's quite convivial, especially on Sundays, when single regulars seem to turn up.

            1. re: Heeney

              B&B is closer to Batali than Bouchon is to Keller. But do not be fooled as neither is close to the "original", IMHO.

          2. The regional tasting menu at B&B is very good. With Bouchon we had very mixed results. Rosemary's is qualitywise on the same level as the other two restaurants.

            B&B ~ Rosemary's > Bouchon

            1. I love eating at the bar at Rosemary's. In addition to having access to the full dining room menu, there is a bar-only small plates menu that is most excellent. As others have pointed out, you get the full-service treatment. And if you are worried about the schlep out west, take the bus... it will drop you off right there.
