Bouchon Bistro Restaurant Review, Las Vegas
Posted by Foodnut.com
Bouchon is a French bistro that is part of the Thomas Keller French Laundry empire. A more affordable way to taste his high quality food. This location is in Las Vegas Strip’s Venetian Resort-Hotel-Casino, Venezia Tower 10th floor, so it is far from the casino. They have locations in Yountville and Beverly Hills. We came for a quick brunch bite. See our Bouchon Yountville for a longer review.
The decor sets the mood, with colors, paintings, and a long magnificent French pewter bar, velvet banquettes, and antique light fixtures that set the stage for a French meal. Almost all the people here were tourists.
This Bouchon restaurant is larger and busier than Yountville. It also has a louder vibe. They have the Bouchon bakery downstairs, which sells some of the best french bread and pastries around.
Menu (Click to zoom into any picture)
Bouchon Brunch Menu has classic specialties like Steak Frites and Chicken & waffles as well as many side orders and shellfish. The French Blackboard menu features specials of the day.
Excellent Pan Epi Bread was fresh out of the oven. Top notch butter and strawberry jam.
Country Sausage ($5) had 3 huge plump sausages. They were filled with high quality meats and had a firm casing.
Pommes Frites ($5) are a requirement when vising Bouchon. Many order the Steak Frites. Huge portion of wonderful thinly sliced fries.
Chicken and Waffles
Waffle up close
Chicken & Waffles ($25) Roasted chicken, bacon and chive waffle, Tahitian vanilla bean butter, sauce Chasseur was a signature dish we could not miss. Excellent half a chicken that was cooked perfectly, tender, and moist. Savory waffles that are not really that far from regular ones. Chasseur was a thick salty gravy with vegetables and bacon. One bite with chicken, waffle, and gravy made our day. You could taste the high quality in the maple syurp. Worked even better for dipping the sausage! Fries went well with the Chasseur sauce.
Bouchon’s service was friendly and functional but not as available as we would like, probably because the place was fairly busy. Prices are reasonable for such a high caliber French Bistro with top notch food. One nearby rival is Mon Ami Gabi, which is a lot larger and more impersonal. They do have good French cuisine.
