Out of the myriad brunch spots in Las Vegas, we’ve vetted the culinary competition down to our top ten picks. Not only do these restaurants have ambiance, celebrity chef sovereignty and spectacular views, they serve some of the most unique and enticing dishes available within city limits. So go ahead—let your mouth water.
1. DW Bistro
You've no doubt heard the word "fusion" tossed around, but have you had it paired with authentic Jamaican and New-Mexican cuisine? Head on over to DW Bistro for delectable treats like jerk chicken and waffles drizzled with DW’s signature syrup and orange zest and white chocolate scones: New-Mexico-style donuts with sautéed cinnamon apples and fresh whipped cream. The restaurant recently moved a bit more central, within the convenience of the court at The Gramercy, making it a prime spot to briefly escape The Strip and experience a fusion the Las Vegas Review-Journal calls both bold and mature.
Brunch is served Sunday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
2. Freedom Beat at the Downtown Grand
It's 10 a.m., you've Irish-coffeed and slotted until you can Irish-coffee and slot no more, and you need something filling. Enter Hell's Kitchen Season 12 Champion, Chef Scott Commings, with a menu serving all the Midwestern comfort food you could ask for alongside intimate, live musical performances from local and touring talent. With an all-you-can-eat special starting at $20—including several benedictine egg options, afternoon entrees like chicken biscuit and fish & chips, and a truly lavish red, white and blue velvet waffle—your midday meal at Freedom Beat will have you hooting, hollering and then crawling back to your hotel for a recommended post-brunch nap. Find out more about their current live music performances here.
Brunch is served Sunday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Nestled within The Grand Canal Shoppes at The Palazzo, Sushisamba was conceived and executed by an award-winning design firm—and the result speaks for itself. Not only is the restaurant adorned with generous 16-foot ceilings and a soaring atrium that houses the main dining space, its brunch menu is to die for. Start with the house-made quinoa waffles sweetened by vanilla-cinnamon butter or try the pork belly buns with aji amarillo aioli.
