The Dish – Delicious Dining Options On The Strip

Giada, Searsucker, and Bound deliver delicious brunch dishes and tasty cocktails

Brunch Lady – GIADA Perfectly Blends Sweet & Savory

Las Vegas Brunch at GIADAGiada De Laurentiis has answered the bell for a better brunch. Her namesake space GIADA, inside The Cromwell, will have you feeling like you’re sitting in a charming Italian café as you choose among favorites such as her decadent lobster hash, lemon-pesto grilled cheese or salmon-cake Benedict. De Laurentiis even puts an Italian spin on a Southern brunch classic with a cacciatore-spiced chicken and Parmesan-crusted polenta/waffle combo. The brunch menu can be sampled à la carte or from a four-course tasting menu ($45). Beverages range from fresh-squeezed juices to sangria, bellinis and Bloody Marys. Or sip on limitless La Marca mimosas ($30).

 

Breakfast Bonus – Searsucker’s Egg-cellent Dinner Option

Las Vegas Brunch at SearsuckerTop Chef alum Brian Malarkey is known for bucking convention. His menu at Searsucker in Caesars Palace is loaded with innovative New American classics—familiar dishes done with a playful twist. You’ll even find a breakfast item or two tucked away on the menu, and Malarkey’s version of Eggs and Bacon goes beyond the norm. It comprises a crispy, perfectly poached egg, topped with pork belly and drizzled with hollandaise sauce.

Searsucker is located in Caesars Palace near the sports book.

 

Buzz Worthy Coffee Cocktails at Bound

Las Vegas Cocktails at BoundWhen Londoner Salvatore Calabrese landed in Las Vegas, the mixologist knew exactly what this 24-hour town needed—caffeinated brews for the city’s night owls and early birds. His “Vegas Never Sleeps” cocktail menu delivers. Bound by Salvatore, at The Cromwell, features five espresso cocktails served in frozen Italian moka pots. His blends start by spiking the espresso—replacing the water with champagne, Red Bull or Peroni beer during brewing. The drinks are then topped off with cognac, vodka or rum and mixed with syrups and spices. So if you’re looking for a perky picker-upper, nothing says Vegas like a clever cocktail called Keep Me Awake Bro or Never Say Goodnight.
