Bread Pudding In Vegas

I was wondering where I can find the best bread pudding in Vegas.
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.
re: Dave Feldman
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.
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 !
