Good breakfast on north Vegas strip?

drtechno Apr 12, 2012 10:48 AM

Greetings Chowder heads ! I'm so excited to finally be on here (as opposed to lurking) with like minded people. I love each and every one of you more than the next.

So on my July trip, I have my wish list of dinner nights, mostly thanks to you guys: Tues- (still open) Wed-Robuchon Thurs-Raku (just to mix things up a bit) Fri-e by Jose

But what about breakfast?? Any good places within 30 min walking of Wynn ?

And finally, any small sandwich type places on the strip for lunch ? Had a hard time finding places last time and I hate the whole "lunch at a restaurant with dinner sized portions" type of crap.

Also any other ideas for a good Tues dinner ? Would have to be different type of food than Robuch ... although I may just do a steak place.

      You may want to reconsider Bouchon for lunch. Bouchon does not serve lunch. It's open for breakfast from 7:00 am to 10:30 am and dinner from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm. The oyster bar is open from 3:00 pm to 10:00 pm.

        It does say on their website that breakfast is served daily till 1:00 pm, my fault for calling it lunch but we are actually goin to have a late breakfast around noon.

          You may want to double check by calling. I got the times from the Venetian's website.

            Who on earth stops breakfast at 10am in Vegas?!? I'll be lucky if I'll be awake at 11 a !

      Excellent dinner choices (Robuchon, e by Jose Andres and Sage). Since you're staying at the Wynn, you should walk over to Bouchon in the Venezia Tower of the Venetian Hotel. If the heat is okay for you, walk along the strip, otherwise you can cross the street into the Palazzo, and (eventually) find your way into the Venezia Tower.

        Thx guys, great advice.

        Any other breakfast place worth hitting? Not sure if Bouchon is do-able for 4 breakfasts in a row? Or am I wrong? I haven't even checked the prices, honestly. Is there still the Denny's beside Encore ?? In case my dinner craziness empties my coffers ;P

        Wow.. just checked their brunch menu.. pretty extensive. Anyone had their Boudin ?

          Probably would go to Bouchon twice. Since you're staying at the Wynn, you should go to Tableau (in the Tower Suites) and Terrace Pointe Cafe--loved their lobster benedict for breakfast.

            Peppermill is old school Vegas and very good.
            Hash house a go go is over the top that serves a ton of food.

              There's also Society Cafe at the Encore which would be convenient and cool to get to! Their cornflake crusted French toast with bananas was really good.

            Wynn has a great Jewish Deli...Zazooo (sp) Crackers deli
            Bouchon at the Venetian has a fab breakfast.
            Country Club at the Wynn for dinner is quite good too.
            July in Vegas is brutally hot..30 minutes walking on the strip at over 115+ degrees.
            Make sure you hit up Lotus of Siam for lunch!

              Tut tut, my love! Still thy trembling lips. Tho shalt not sully dinner with anything other than top recommendations. (translation- I'll prob skip CC at Wynn since there are other places I wanted to try, heh)

              Yea, Lotus sounds great for lunch.. but sometimes an entire dish of Thai fills me up a little too much. Just need something to take the edge off until the time of the Rapture (read- dinner reservation, usually 8pm).

              I like your suggestions for breakfast. And I love heat even more. I think maybe I'm cold blooded and unable to generate my own body heat :)

                I second Beach Chick's recommendation of Bouchon -- my favorite breakfast spot in town.

                Tableau (at Wynn) was once my second favorite. Over time, its menu was dumbed down, and it went through a series of chefs. IIRC, it might even have been briefly renamed. Now it's back with another chef, and it seems there's hope for the menu again. It might be worth a try...

                As an aside, I think we are going to add Sage to the list for Tuesday.
