Some stupid breakfast questions...

  • 4

I am trying to think of ideas for breakfast with a friend when she is in town for a relative's wedding next Sunday. She'll be here Saturday night only, coming from LA, and I think leaving after lunch on Sunday. Nothing too big or heavy as I think she has a wedding-related luncheon on Sunday to go to. Also after breakfast meeting my sister who is flying in for a couple of days of much-needed R and R (so will be plenty of eating with her. After all, her high school yearbook named her a founding member of the "Food is My Life Club."). The Verandah at the Four Seasons was my first thought: breakfast there is always nice and my sis is taking the airport shuttle to Mandalay Bay where she's staying so its convenient. So the first of my stupid questions: Do we need reservations on a Sunday morning for breakfast? There will be either three or four of us: friend is bringing her college-aged daughter and if my sister shows up in time she might join us... I have heard that there is some seating out by the pool, but are there misters or should I give up on that idea...it sounds nice but it has been hot....(its July; its Vegas...why does the heat surprise me every year?). I've never had breakfast at Bouchon, and that sounds good too...but will my friend be bored with it since she will have just returned from a week or two in France a few days earlier? (for that matter, her daughter has been living in France for the last six months....). Any other ideas? I'm looking for something on or near the strip, yet not too "Vegas." Does that make any sense?

  1. First off, I doubt you need a res for Verandah but it wouldn't hurt to make one. A great alternative to Bouchon is Tableau in the Wynn which I think is superior. Seating inside and outside near the pool.

    1. I've not been to Tableau or Verandah for breakfast (I rarely eat breakfast at all), but I certainly wouldn't let the Frenchiness of Bouchon turn you off. Sure, they include items such as trout amandine and croque monsieurs and mussels, but none of these items would be unusual in an American restaurant that serves lunch items, as well. But there are plenty of American entries (e.g., waffles, "French" toast, corned beef hash), too. I thought of Marche Bacchus as a possible non-Strip alternative (the setting is most conducive to conversation), but the brunch menu there is more French than Bouchon) .

      It's a downscale alternative, and the food isn't quite as good as the others, but I love going to Hash House on South Decatur for the hash and the homemade preserves (albeit on indifferent toast). The waitresses are fun and usually you can hang out indefinitely in diner-like surroundings.

        second the Hash House; note, very relaxed atmosphere very unlike luxury resorts;
        plus side, coupons at restaurant.com: 'favorite among locals, tourists and celebrities alike, Hash House A Go Go offers a unique style featuring "farm fresh food with a twist'

        agree on the Four Seasons brunch for elegant serious chowhound

          Dave was not referring to the Hash a Go Go. There is another restaurant in Las Vegas simply called the Hash House. There is no connection between the two.
