The question that plagues many Las Vegas visitors is where to dine in Las Vegas. We’ve become a dining mecca! So where should you go if you’ve only got a few days here in the valley and you want to have a memorable experience? If you’re staying at the Venetian or Palazzo the answer is a no-brainer. You can’t leave without enjoying a meal at chef Thomas Keller’s Bouchon. It’s French dining at it’s finest. If the words “stuffy”, “snooty” or “pretentious” come to mind when considering a world class French restaurant, leave your preconceived notions at the door. Bouchon is nothing of the kind.
From the minute you arrive at Bouchon you’ll feel welcomed and comfortable. The setting is more bistro than restaurant. Simple decor with dark wood chairs and white clothed tables and a choice to dine indoors or on the patio add to Bouchon’s country bistro atmosphere. The servers are all very knowledgable about the food. Don’t hesitate to ask for a little help in making your decisions. They are there to guide you through the menu.
Bouchon is open for breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner. The breakfast menu includes freshly made pastries, smoked salmon, omelets, brioche and more. Lunch items include open faced sandwiches, amazing salads, wagyu burgers and quiche. Brunch is served Friday – Sunday from 7am – 2pm. Be sure to check out the raw bar. The seafood selection is excellent. For dinner the menu selection is simply wonderful. Try the succulent oysters on the half shell or escargot a la Bourguignonne. The fried zucchini blossoms are delicious and plentiful; a great dish to share. The pan seared swordfish is the best I’ve ever tasted anywhere. Absolutely everything on the menu is wonderful. The only bad thing I can say about Bouchon is that in a city full of headline chefs and world class restaurants you won’t want to go anywhere else! It’s that fabulous!!
