Chef Natalie Young’s intimate Downtown space offers an approachable take on French-influenced cuisine with an affordable weekday breakfast and lunch menu plus weekend brunch. This locally acclaimed restaurant, which also has a location in Summerlin, is situated on the corner of Carson and 7th Street – an area that serves as an understated culinary rival to the buzzier Fremont Street. If it’s a lazy Sunday kind of day, order the cinnamon biscuits with warm strawberry compote and savor them with locally made Mothership Roastworks coffee.
Chef Donald Lemperle’s plant-based restaurant, VegeNation, appeals to both vegans and carnivores. Outfitted in good vibes and greenery, it serves a weekend brunch that uses a divide-and-conquer approach to please fans of all types of cuisine. If you like Japanese food, try the vegan tuna-less tuna sushi made with forbidden rice. If you crave Mexican flavors, order the vegan burrito stuffed with chorizo tofu, breakfast potatoes and beans. If you’re into Southern food, feast on the biscuits and mushroom gravy with braised collard greens. Tip: Don’t skip the CBD-infused tea and draft kombucha!
As a quintessential people-watching destination, HEXX Kitchen + Bar is a perfect place to settle in for bottomless mimosas and views of palm trees, passing pedestrians and the lure of the Fountains of Bellagio in the distance. Brunch is served every day from 6am until 4pm at this Paris Las Vegas restaurant. Opt for first come, first served patio seating and get the cinnaroll waffle – a cinnamon waffle topped with a generous serving of cream-cheese frosting. Expect a festive atmosphere and Instagram-worthy bloody marys, such as The Colossal, which is garnished with bacon, shrimp, beef jerky and an Alaskan king crab leg.
Featuring tranquil views of Mandalay Bay’s lazy river and palm-studded pool, Border Grill offers a bottomless weekend brunch that allows you to try unlimited small plates. This indoor-outdoor space, headed by chefs Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger, is known for serving inventive Mexican brunch dishes, including spicy chicken tamales, chilaquiles, prickly pear almond coconut parfaits, and crispy yuca. Add on bottomless mimosas or micheladas or try a seasonal mojito to complement your food.
Just about every highly decorated chef has a restaurant or two on the Las Vegas Strip, so if you have to choose one, it’s hard to beat Thomas Keller’s Bouchon. Located inside the opulent Venetian, this airy French restaurant – which was once coined “the best restaurant, ever” by Anthony Bourdain – serves breakfast and brunch seven days a week. Take a seat on the sun-soaked terrace and order beignets for the table, before moving onto French classics such as a croque madame, eggs benedict with smoked pork loin, and brioche french toast with stone fruit.
Planning on an early morning hike at Red Rock Canyon? Reward yourself afterward with brunch on the west side of town at Andiron Steak and Sea. This crisp, white, Hamptons-inspired restaurant is known for its seafood-focused dishes including shrimp and grits, raw oysters, lobster mac and cheese, and Scottish salmon with romesco sauce. Its famous dessert table that’s stocked with candy is another highlight. The atmosphere at Andiron is sleek and upscale, so put on something stylish and take a selfie in front of the restaurant’s signature floral wallpaper.
A Latin American brunch with plenty of vegetarian options awaits you at Makers and Finders. With locations in Downtown’s recently revitalized Arts District and Downtown Summerlin, Makers and Finders is an ultra-hip breakfast and brunch choice that serves chicken tinga omelets and churro waffles with Mexican chocolate and blueberries. Get there after 10am and go for the empanada sampler. It includes a swoon-worthy selection of garlic shrimp, queso and spicy mushroom, chicken tinga, and short rib empanadas. Hibiscus mimosas (available a la carte or bottomless) are an essential part of any morning here.
From the whimsical back patio (and secret side patio with a seesaw) to the giant moscow mules and cheese-smothered tater tots, brunch at Park on Fremont is just plain fun. Opt for Fremont Street views in the front or an enchanted garden setting in the back to enjoy your breakfast or brunch. Shareables are big here. The menu includes egg rolls with tamarind cashew sauce, fried pickles and wings, plus that massive moscow mule, which is presented in a huge copper mug filled with enough vodka, ginger and lime to serve six.
The sunny, plant-filled patio at Herringbone features an all-you-can-eat weekend brunch. It includes a carving station, fresh seafood, desserts and more – all served in an open, social setting at the Aria Resort & Casino. In addition to the chef stations, you can also order California-inspired fare from the kitchen or other popular dishes such as the orange-ricotta chocolate chip pancakes and the duck-fat fries. If you’re planning on hanging out for a while, go for bottomless bellinis, mimosas and bloody marys, or get comfortable on a couch and sip an Aperol spritz or two.
