Bouchon Bistro

   

My husband and I are currently on a little vacation, our first getaway in well over a year! We are celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and since we had to stay fairly close to home due to my husband's job (he could be called back at any time) we decided to hop on down to Vegas. Yesterday we went to brunch at Thomas Keller's Bouchon and it has to be one of my favorite spots in this sparkly, over the top town. It is very elegant and I loved the charming French paintings on the wall. Oh and the food --  amazing! I've had this place on my list for quite a while and last time I thought the kiosk bakery was it, but I'm very happy to find out there is an actual bistro thanks to Bonnie. We will definitely be hitting this spot every time we come this way. What are your favorite must-hit spots in or near Vegas?

We ate there for our 5th anniversary last summer and it is one of those legendary meals that we think back on as being nothing but magical. The entire experience from walking in the door to the bread to the meal itself. Ohhh, and those tile floors! I die!

We are from Vegas and I have never eaten there. It looks amazing. We really like Kennedy's at the District and the creme brulee at Brio (town square)! Happy 10 years, wow!

Happy Anniversary to you two! I wish you many more years of happiness together. Bouchon sounds like a perfect place to celebrate... I've only been to the small bakery at the Time Warner Center, and this week another bakery opened one block away from my office; I predict their being responsible for many of the inches that will be added to my hips ;)

This is my favorite Bouchon location and one of my fave spots to go in Vegas. Glad you had a lovely time!

Ah, I went to Bouchon in Vegas a couple years ago... We went for breakfast and it was such a treat!
I live in California but have yet to try the one in Yountville.

We have lived in Vegas for two years now and dinner at Bouchon is high on my list of things to do before we move. I have had their weekend brunch, which was incredible, and a ton of macarons from their kiosk, but haven't made it to dinner yet.

Some of my favorite spots: Dos Caminos for upscale Mexican in the Palazzo, Wolfgang's Postrio in the Venetian, the view at night of the Strip in the booths from First Food and Bar (food is okay).

My favorite restaurant is off strip in Summerlin - Vintner Grill. The interior of the restaurant is very chic, the food is fab, and they play old black and white movies once it gets dark. They don't have the sound on, but the atmosphere and bread selection is to die for. I highly recommend it! Have fun! Happy anniversary! :)
