I was wondering where I can find the best bread pudding in Vegas.

Thanks!

    I really like the bread pudding souffle at Commanders Palace.

      For something a little different, Bouchon serves bread pudding style French toast for breakfast. It's soft, somewhat sweet, with apples. I wasn't thrilled with it, but most people rave about it.

        I'm skeptical, but a coworker who lived in Las Vegas for five years said the microbrewery at Monte Carlo has excellent bread pudding. ...

          Las Vegas is the epicenter of mushy bread pudding. It all started with Steve Wynn's mother's recipe, which has been featured at the buffets of his hotels (e.g., Golden Nugget, Bellagio, Mirage, Wynn Hotel, etc.).

          I'm not a big fan of this style. Commander's Palace's bread pudding souffle is a big step up in quality, but I still prefer a bread pudding that fights back a little.

          Emeril's bread pudding is pretty good. I don't know if Delmonico's serves the same kind or not.

          I still haven't found a b.p. in L.V. comparable to the best of New Orleans.

            Old topic, but being a big BP fan I'll comment: First of all, I agree with Dave that there are MANY limp bread puddings all over Vegas.

            That said, three of the 5 best bread puddings I have ever had are made by Emeril. While none are as stellar as Nancy Olson's Chocolate Bread Pudding at Gramercy Tavern, the versions at Emeril's Orlando, Emeril's Tchoup Chop, and Emeril's New Orleans Fish House were all incredible.

            I look forward to tasting the version at Table 10 on my visit next month.

            I've been told the version at CraftSteak is impressive, as well.

            I've read good reviews about the strawberry bread pudding at Table 10

              a pic of the strawberry bread pudding. i just ate at delmonico's where i had the bana bread pudding. after pulling up this pic, i realized it's basically the same pudding, just different fruit ! the banana bread pudding cost $10 - kinda pricy even for vegas standards !

                I'd pay for a great bread pudding.

                I think I paid $12 at Emeril's in Orlando.

                Best DEAL was the Bread Pudding at Dessert Truck in NYC. Heaven for $5.

              I like Rosemary's coconut bread pudding with coconut sorbet, toasted almonds & dark chocolate sauce. Chef calls it a deconstructed almond joy.

                That does sound damned good. I keep hearing good things about Rosemary's, but never get off the strip d/t lack of a car and high cab prices.

                    The Coconut Bread Pudding at Rosemary's is pretty faboo.

                    Take the bus out west on Sahara... it will drop you off right in front of the restaurant.

                    Definitely worth the time and travel tariff...

                    I thought the bread pudding at Rosemary's was only ok (which is my assessment of much of the food), and mostly tasted of coconut. I might have liked it more if it actually did taste anything like an almond joy.

                    Too bad Commander's Palace is closed: now that really was a really good bread pudding...(have to admit, unlike Dave Feldman above, I like it sort of mushy, if the flavor is there....)

                      I have heard that Nora's makes a good bread pudding, which struck me as a bit odd as I don't think of it in conjunction with Italian restaurants. But since DH loves bread pudding, we might just have to go check it out for ourselves (I also hear they make a good martini, and my lunches there have been good...). Of course, DH may have a dilemna as to whether to order bread pudding or to ask if they have spumoni.....:-)

                    I guess I'll have to browse around while I'm there and see what bread puddings I can find. Definitely in for another Emeril sampling at Table 10. IMO, along with gnocchi, Bread Pudding is a perfect dish in that it is simple/rustic/poor-man's cooking yet extremely hard to make "amazing." Both are heavily texture dependant, as well. I think I'm going to shoot for Buchon's brunch and see if I can get Keller's gnocchi along with that incredible looking bread pudding french toast. Best of both worlds.

                    Any other places that do both?

                      Tonight I ate with some friends at The New Orleans Connection, a little hole-in-the-wall place in a strip mall in Henderson. Its the kind of place where you order at the counter, and no liquor license. But the food is the real deal...apparently the owners relocated to Henderson from New Orleans after Katrina. The gumbo and the shrimp poboy were both excellent, but the bread pudding was definitely the best I've had in the Vegas area!! Served with a bourbon sauce....DH is out of the country, so he missed his favorite desert, but I think its definitely worth the drive across the valley to take him back for another helping!

                        Wait a minute! Your DH will drive all the way across the valley for bread pudding but not half way across for LOS? You need a new hubby. :)

                          Get thee to New Orleans. I'll bet your list would change radically.
