DONâ€™T OVERLOOK A THING ON THE BUBBLES & BRUNCH MENU AT THE COSMOPOLITAN
Thereâ€™s no shortage of fab brunches in this town. You can do Cajun for a jazzy Sunday morning affair at Wynnâ€™s Country Club Grill, have a more refined experience at the Bellagioâ€™s Fountain Brunch, or go off the beaten brunch path for a tour through Asia at Mandarin Orientalâ€™s MOzen Bistro. The newest entry available to the brunch bound is The Cosmopolitan Las Vegasâ€™ Bubbles & Brunch at the Overlook Grill.
A brunch more casual than most but no less chic, the Overlook Grillâ€™s â€śindoor/outdoor atmosphere with a twist of French Rivieraâ€ť offers a more carefree way to do brunch, and who doesnâ€™t want that come Saturday and Sunday? Happily ensconced at the base of the Boulevard Pool, we started with a just-out-of-the-oven Monkeybread that was so good we couldnâ€™t stop nibbling on the sweet pecan encrusted pastry. And as Director of F&B Ralph Cautela observed, â€śif you are feeling peckish after some time at the pool this is a great way to refresh.â€ť Indeed, especially with the grillâ€™s Scotch Egg, a breakfast sausage-wrapped egg served over arugula and grilled tomatoes.
And, of course, the team at Luxury is ever appreciative of a dining experience that makes a champagne â€“ MoĂ«tâ€™s Ice Imperial â€“only available in five cities a centerpiece. You can enjoy your champagne solo or with a fruity dose of mint leaves, raspberries, blackberries and orange zest, which is definitely the way to go.
We also like that Bubbles & Brunch is a small plates experience so we can try a bit of everything. And, trust us, you will want to try everything; thereâ€™s not a dud on the menu. Itâ€™s a rotating menu but we experienced Char Siu Pork Ribs, Slow Cooked Bistro Steak with Truffle Potato Puree, Diver Scallop in a Spring Pea Risotto, and Jumbo Lump Crabcake Benedict with Creole Hollandaise â€“ all excellently prepared.
To end on a sweet note are adult versions of childhood dessert favorites like Hefeweizen cupcakes, Jello shots in the flavors of Mimosa and Kahlua & Cream, and Rum & Coke Whoopie Pies.
