Bouchon Breakfast Advice

New York Foodies here who get to Vegas a couple times a year. I'm always on the lookout for the best Breakfast place, so two years ago on the strength of all the raves here we tried Bouchon. I feel like a heretic saying this but it was truly terrible - the kind of meal where you finish feeling sad and cheated - undercooked potatoes, corned beef that was literally just some corned beef and onions diced together, service that never showed up.

Well, I'm back in Vegas this weekend and I see that everyone still loves it, so I suspect that we must have gone on the only time they've ever had a bad day. It happens. SO! I'm trying again. But this time, I want to make sure I give it the best shot I can. Can anyone tell me exactly what to order to make sure I get the experience everyone else does? I really want to like this place. Thanks!

  1. I used to love Bouchon for breakfast. Would schlep over from the Bellagio for the Breakfast Jardinere for $22. When I went this past March I had the nastiest server ever. She wouldn't refill coffee (other servers did), wouldn't clear empty plates, and gave me a hard time when I wanted to substitute the beignets for the pastry even though I was willing to pay any up charge. When she finally got around to bringing the beignets, they were burnt. Much better service at the Bellagio Cafe--love their lobster omelette.

      LOL..I remember you writing about that server.

        I've had less than good food and service too Ellen.

        Love that lobster omelette- I always try and squeeze in one visit to Bellagio Cafe per trip no matter where I stay.

      2. I think the chicken and waffles is incomparable; I also enjoyed the Croque, the Foie Terrine, and the French Toast - all were ordered at various breakfasts over the years - I even requested the Parisian gnocchi be made for breakfast once and they were glad to do so.

        1. Nope. I had one experience so wonderful, I raved about it and could not wait to go back. The next time, I did not have a good experience. It isn't just you.

          1. Verandah at Four Seasons/Mandalay is lovely.
            Peppermill is a fun and good food.
            Tacos El Gordo for taco shop goodness.

              Agree…and for a splurge, Tableau at the Wynn is wonderful. The duck hash…OMG!
