Tower Suite Cafe vs. Tableau breakfast?

One of the highlights of previous trips to Las Vegas has always been breakfast at Tableau at the Wynn. I have just learned that Tableau is no more, and has been replaced by the Tower Suites Cafe. Has anyone had breakfast there, and how does it compare to Tableau?

    I hope the "Tower Suites Cafe" is as good as Tableau. I thought Tableau had the best breakfast in town. Would be sad to see it head a step down, to the level perhaps of the Terrace, which isn't bad, but Tableau it isn't.

      It is the same thing with a different name and a few more options. I just had my favorite there, the dungeness crab club and it was the same.

        I am the op, and I just returned from L V and had breakfast at the Tower Suites Cafe, and at least for breakfast, it's pretty much just a change in name. It's still terrific, although I must say that I think the new entrance through the coffee shop and elevator lobby somehow detracts from the elegance of the restaurant.

          I am currently staying at the Wynn, and the name was changed back to Tableau again yesterday.

            Very funny...assume it's still the best breakfast in the classiest room in town?

              That title belongs to Bouchon. Tableau was "nice"--fine if you're staying in the Tower Suites, but not destination-worthy as is Bouchon.

                Disagree...having eaten at both several times, I prefer Tableau...food, service and certainly ambiance. Agree that Bouchon also has a terrific breakfast.

                  i have eaten breakfast at tableau, bouchon, verrandah and mozen bistro -- they are all great, and i would love to spend a month comparison eating to decide which one is best.

                    The breakfast has been excellent at Tableau...the food, ambiance and service. However, I agree that there is something more "destination worthy" about Bouchon, given that I usually make it a point to go there on every trip to Las Vegas and haven't felt the need to do the same with Tableau on trips where I am not staying at the Wynn/Tower Suites. I love the pastries at Bouchon!

                      I love both but if I had to choose, Tableau would inch out Bouchon simply because Bouchon gets too crowded and the service and quality of food tends to suffer a bit. Mesa Grill is "destination worthy" just for the brunch grits but it is definitely not as good as Tableau or Bouchon.

                  Have to agree w/some of the other posts. I think it is fair to say if you are staying at the respective hotel there is really no NEED to go to another hotel to eat breakfast (Wynn-Tableau, Venetian-Bouchon, Mandarin-Mozen, Four Seasons-Verandah). However to say to a Chow-ish type of person that Tableau is not destination-worthy may be a bit silly. Food aside, the ambiance at Tableau is much nicer. Bouchon, with its tile floor, is fine but no where near inviting. Not sure Bouchon ever pushes the envelope when it comes to food. I've never seen things Wild Boar sausage scramble on their menu. There is plenty of reason to try Tableau but as I said above not need, unless you are a glutton like me!
