THE BUSINESS OF LUNCH

Michael Mina’s Bardot Brasserie refines noontime dining

One of the beautiful things about a brasserie is that it can be many things to many people. With dark lacquer walls, burgundy leather booths, a brass bar and zinc countertop all conjuring images of Paris in the 1920s, Michael Mina’s Bardot Brasserie has long been a favorite of lovers seeking a romantic night on the town.

The addition of brunch shortly after it opened, complete with champagne cart, cocktails or bottomless glasses of rosé, made it a prime spot for those looking to while away a few lazy weekend hours. And now, the Aria restaurant looks poised to become The Strip’s ultimate power-lunch spot.

Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., executive chef Josh Smith will offer three-course prix fixe meals for diners on the go, as well as an a la carte menu. In the Bardot tradition, expect refined takes on familiar French classics, impeccably executed and delivered by The Mina Group’s top-notch team.

Menu options include the house specialty escargot in puff pastry with chartreuse garlic butter, Maine lobster nicoise or chicken cordon bleu salads and a prime rib French dip with Mimolette cheese fondue and creamy horseradish. And of course, everything comes with a touch of je ne sais quoi,
at no additional charge.
