Review of Bouchon Bistro Las Vegas

Aw Bouchon Bistro, its one of those restaurants I could spend all morning at and feel more relaxed than ever before. One thing people need to realize when coming to this restaurant is Thomas Keller did not open Bouchon Bistro for it to be compared to the greatness of The French Laundry or Per Se, no he opened so people can experience a french bistro without leaving the country and he did just that. I came for breakfast and had no problem getting a seat on the patio. The patio is a nice and quite area with a small fountain in the middle that will make even the most stressed out people feel relaxed.

I started off with a cup of there delicious coffee. I then ordered there signature Bouchon French Toast which is bread pudding style with warm layers of brioche, custard and apples, served with there warm maple syrup. One bite is all it took to fall in love with this place. Its not your ordinary french toast at all. One might think its to small when they first bring it to the table but after wards you will be more than satisfied. Its rich but not overpowering and the thinly sliced apples add a nice light refreshing taste to it. I also ordered a side of the potatoes that were seasoned and cooked perfectly and had to be the best potatoes I have had in a long time.

Overall the service was excellent throughout the meal. They always made sure my cups were full and I was taken care of. This is one of my favorite places now and would come to Las Vegas just to eat here again.
