This 2.5-hour brunch tour meets up at the ARIA Resort and Casino at about 10:15 a.m., and your tour takes off at about 10:30 once everyone in your group has checked in.
Start at Herringbone inside ARIA Resort and Casino, and savor specialties, such as the on-trend avocado toast garnished with jicama and jalapeno, eggs benedict elevated with crab, crispy leeks, and spicy hollandaise, and a refreshing watermelon-tomato salad. Quench your thirst with peach or strawberry yuzu Bellinis, as well as cold-pressed garden-fresh juices. All the while, a DJ spins tunes to get the party started.
Next, head over to Bardot Brasserie, and experience its upscale atmosphere. Any morning is better with caramelized, custardy canelés, as well as golden brioche French toast gilded with vanilla mascarpone and almond brittle. Indulge in those treats with a chic French 75 (French gin, fresh lemon juice, Champagne) or an elegant non-alcoholic French Mule (velvet falernum, ginger beer, yuzu). Founded by acclaimed Chef Michael Mina, this glamorous French cafe was a James Beard semi-finalist this year for “Best New Restaurant."
Then, revel in brunch – Asian-style, with dim sum at Lemongrass. Classic steamer-basket delicacies, such as sui mai, har gow, and barbecue pork buns are not to be missed, especially paired with refreshing Thai iced tea or a breezy Watermelon Caipiroska (Grey Goose Vodka, lime, fresh watermelon juice). End your stop here with the always-popular warm, sweet, coconut sticky rice and fresh mango.
Your guide leaves you at Lemongrass at about 1 p.m. with the rest of the day's plans in your own hands.
