My 5th day in Vegas was a hectic one - I decided to have Breakfast at Bouchon, Lunch at Spago and Dinner at Daniel Boulud. Bouchon is Thomas Keller's French Bistro in Vegas and is modeled after the original bistro located in Yountville, California. He is also best known for the acclaimed 3 star Michelin French Laundry.
I was quite excited since it was going to be my first decent breakfast. I did not even bother going to any of the Buffet places of the Hotels since I found they were too crowded, etc...So I woke up early and decided to walk from my Hotel to the Venetian, where Bouchon was located.
It was quite a long walk (almost 4 km I would say) but that was good since I had a hectic day of eating and drinking....I got there around 8:30 am and i was half full. They sat me in a small table facing the garden. Service was fast and very efficient. They immediately served brewed coffee and gave me the menu.
Browsing the menu was a feast to my eyes...all kinds of breakfast orders, like Corned Beef Hash, Bacon and Eggs, Eggs Benedict, etc....I was very confused and did not know what to order...Finally i decided to order a Croque Madame - a hot ham and cheese (typically emmental or gruyère) grilled sandwich. Its served with a fried or Poached Egg on top. In this case, it was a fried egg and a huge mountain of French Fries. I could not have chosen a better way to start my day...freshly baked bread, grilled to perfection with ham and melted cheese. The French Fries...probably one of the best I've tried...delicious.
