Weekend brunch in Las Vegas is a dining experience of the highest order. Classically inspired delicacies from around the world intermingle to provide a sweet and savory overload that makes for the perfect gathering after a late night at the clubs, though calling it a recovery meal would be an injustice. Instead, brunch is the quintessential decrescendo to the previous evening’s crescendo. Many nightlife revelers seek a classic Vegas brunch to prolong the euphoria and closeout their weekend with gusto.
TAO Beach offers a stellar midday dining experience in the sun, but don’t forget about our sister property LAVO. LAVO’s offerings are good enough to stand on their own, but for those of you looking for a solution once TAO Beach closes, well LAVO has that covered too with weekend brunch served year-round.
Brunch at LAVO takes on a touch of Italian flair to elevate an already sublime experience. Taking this into consideration, here are some tips for making the most of the “most important meal of the day” (at least on weekends in Las Vegas) at LAVO.
Don’t Overthink Your Drink
Brunch in Vegas usually starts off with one of two mainstays – a Bloody Mary or a Mimosa. While ingredients and flavors can vary from the traditional, you can’t go wrong with either. Take it up a notch at LAVO – where our classic Bloody Mary also comes with bleu cheese stuffed olives and a Waygu meatball.
LAVO also offers delightfully refreshing Micheladas that are great for an afternoon in the sun. This classic Mexican concoction is a mix of beer, lime juice and a variety of sauces and spices finished off with a salted rim to help keep your electrolytes in check – at least that’s our excuse!
Start with a Favorite (or Two)
In any Vegas brunch spot, you’ll notice a commonality – waffles and pancakes. With a variety of styles and toppings, they are perfect starter to share as a group and the sweetness pairs wonderfully with that first Mimosa.
Make Your Brunch Count
The biggest mistake people make when going out to brunch is only ordering “breakfast” or only ordering “lunch.” Even if you have to share, it isn’t truly brunch unless your table is filled with an assorted array of sweet and savory dishes from both of these meal periods.
You can even cover all the bases by ordering just one brunch favorite – chicken and waffles. Crispy fried chicken atop light and airy Belgian waffles covered in maple syrup makes for the perfect sweet and savory combination.
Now is also a good time to mention that LAVO also offers a selection of Italian favorites during brunch such as thin crust Margherita pizza and classic Parmegiano (your choice of eggplant, chicken or Vealchop).
Don’t Leave Out Dessert
Sure you’ve already had something sweet, but that shouldn’t stop you from having a little “pick me up” before heading on your way. You may have thought you were too full, but that was likely before you saw our fried Oreos.
Dessert is also the perfect time to switch things up with your beverage as well. Sure, you could opt fora simple espresso, but why not indulge in a chocolate martini made with Godiva liqueur or an Irishcoffee with Bailey’s?
When it comes to Vegas dining, brunch is one of the most decadent meals you can enjoy. Whetheryou’re reminiscing about the night before or preparing for a highly anticipated evening on the town, LAVO has a table waiting.
