Bouchon is an extraordinary French bistro located in The Venezia tower of The Venetian. The tasty menu of traditional French favorites, exemplary service, and a relaxing outdoor dining patio earn Bouchon a top spot amongst the best places for brunch on the Vegas strip.
Bouchon offers an enticing menu of indulgent French favorites like French Toast, Quiche, and plenty of tempting pastries. Fresh bread and butter are served to you while you are waiting for your delicious entree. Sometimes, they have a few samples of delicious French pastries out for your tasting while you are waiting for your seat.
If you have a sweet tooth, you must try out the Brioche French toast, topped with Blueberry compote, vanilla bean butter, and Crown maple syrup. It was absolutely delicious, as was the fluffy, moist Blueberry muffin which we ordered as a side.
The assortment of Bouchon pastries, which includes 4 French delicacies, is a great coffee accompaniment for anyone looking for a little morning treat rather than a full meal.
The Quiche of the day, served with a spring salad, is the perfect option for anyone craving a more filling, protein rich meal. Together with a delicious side of lyonnaise potatoes, it was the perfect pre-half marathon morning breakfast.
Other items on the breakfast/brunch menu include: salmon, omelets, sourdough waffles, salads, and seafood plates. The spiced doughnuts, served with house-made jam, looked pretty tempting as well, unfortunately, we were much too stuffed to try anything else! Maybe next time!
Service was fantastic, although pretty slow due to the intense weekend crowds from the Rock N'Roll Marathon. Our waiter gave us a 50% discount because he felt bad about the slow service since we were running the half later in the day. What a nice gesture!
The setting both indoors and out at Bouchon is busy, yet elegant. It's classy, yet casual at the same time. We chose to sit on the outdoor patio, which was a bit quieter and more relaxed. We enjoyed our brunch which came with nice views of The Venetian pool area.
The landscaping was very attractive and the soothing fountains made the experience even more relaxing. They had heat lamps going for the brisk fall morning, so it was perfectly comfortable for our meal despite the chilly temps.
Overall, Bouchon provided just what we needed to start the day off right before the Rock N'Roll Half: the ideal balance of carbs and protein, with a little relaxation thrown in.
I would definitely recommend Bouchon as a fantastic brunch option for anyone not in a rush. Take your time and enjoy some great French food and drinks on the relaxing outdoor patio. A+ food, service, and setting make Bouchon more than a worthy choice for breakfast.
So, take some time away from the noisy Strip and enjoy a delicious, relaxed brunch at Bouchon: the perfect recovery meal after a long night in Vegas!
