Join award-winning Lip Smacking Foodie Tours for brunch Las Vegas-style that outshines all others. Imagine indulging in not one, not two, but three premier brunches – all in one morning. The “Lip Smacking Boozy Brunch’’ is not only the best brunch in Las Vegas, but the ultimate brunch experience – anywhere.
Greet the day with brunch on the Strip with everything from dim sum and French pastries to exciting cooked-to-order preparations at lively chef stations. Libations are included, making this the best boozy brunch imaginable. For those who prefer not to imbibe, creative mocktails are offered instead.
Brunch is always a jubilant affair, and never better than with new friends. Sitting down to a different table at three different venues amid great food and drink makes it easy to meet and mingle. Best yet, there’s never any time wasted in line at the host stand nor any distraction in studying the menu. Instead, you are treated as a VIP, and whisked immediately to a prime table for the fun to begin. No wonder this tour was named “Best Brunch’’ by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Not into an early breakfast after a late-night out at the tables or a show? Don’t worry; this tour has got you covered. It starts at a respectable 10:30 a.m., giving you ample time to get ready for a mid-morning on the town at three renowned restaurants famed for brunch.
At Herringbone, you never know which A-listers you’ll spot. Chef Brian Malarkey of “Top Chef’’ and “The Taste’’ fame opened this favorite celebrity haunt that Eater deemed one of the hottest restaurants in Las Vegas. Indulge in your fill of tempting specialties prepared right before your eyes at a variety of stations, including “Salt, Brine & Poke,’’ “Carved & Scrambled,’’ “Farm Fresh,’’ and “Kid-In-You.’’ Then, sit back to enjoy it all al fresco with a DJ spinning snappy tunes.
At Bardot Brasserie, rev up your sweet tooth with caramelized, custardy canelés, as well as golden brioche French toast gilded with vanilla mascarpone and almond brittle. Sip a chic French 75 (French gin, fresh lemon juice, Champagne) or an elegant non-alcoholic French Mule (velvet falernum, ginger beer, yuzu) at this glamorous French café founded by acclaimed Chef Michael Mina that was a James Beard semi-finalist for “Best New Restaurant.’’
Next, revel in brunch – Asian-style, with dim sum at Lemongrass. Classic steamer-basket delicacies such as siu mai, har gow, and barbecue pork buns are not to be missed, especially paired with refreshing Thai iced tea or a breezy Watermelon Caipiroska (Grey Goose Vodka, lime, fresh watermelon juice). End your stop here with the always-popular warm, sweet, coconut sticky rice with fresh mango.
A perfect prelude to an afternoon of lounging by the pool or relaxing at the spa, this brunch extravaganza makes for an ideal couples outing, bachelorette party, friends reunion or birthday celebration.
