Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day. But true connoisseurs know that a Lip Smacking Boozy Brunch Tour is the ultimate way to greet the day in Vegas.
Wake up leisurely to the most scrumptious sweet and savory morsels on this spirited tour of Vegas’ most acclaimed establishments. We make brunch extra special by curating a lively, social dining experience complete with music, an array of superlative food, free-flowing cocktails, and outstanding VIP service. For those who don’t wish to imbibe at that hour, original mocktails are offered instead.
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 just deemed one of the hottest restaurants in Las Vegas. Savor specialties such as the on-trend avocado toast garnished with jicama and jalapeno; eggs benedict elevated with crab, crispy leeks and spicy hollandaise; and a refreshing watermelon-tomato salad. Quench your thirst with peach or strawberry yuzu Bellinis, as well as cold-pressed garden-fresh juices. All the while, a DJ spins tunes to get the party started.
Any morning is better with caramelized, custardy canelés, as well as golden brioche French toast gilded with vanilla mascarpone and almond brittle. Indulge in those treats with a chic French 75 (French gin, fresh lemon juice, Champagne) or an elegant non-alcoholic French Mule (velvet falernum, ginger beer, yuzu) at Bardot Brasserie. Founded by acclaimed Chef Michael Mina, this glamorous French cafe was a James Beard semi-finalist this year for “Best New Restaurant.’’
Then, revel in brunch – Asian-style, with dim sum at Lemongrass. Classic steamer-basket delicacies such as sui 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.
Get your appetite ready for an extraordinary culinary tour that will make you realize just how exciting brunch in Vegas can be.
