I don't gamble, but that doesn't stop me from hitching a ride with my husband to Las Vegas every year. He comes to exhibit at the Global Shop tradeshow, and the kids, grandparents and I come to have fun.
There are tons of exquisite eateries here. If you're a foodie and have never been to Vegas, I highly recommend it.
My must-go restaurant is Bouchon Bistro in the Venetian. Owned by Thomas Keller of French Laundry and per se fame, Bouchon offers French bistro fare in the most elegant yet down-to-earth of environments. Dark paneled-wood and mosaic floors juxtapose against shiny brass globe lamps, Carrera marbletop counters and white linens. Everything is bathed in a diffuse natural light that pours in from grand windows overlooking a green garden.
This place makes my soul sing.
This morning, my daughter Christina ordered a croissant, flaky as flaky can be and with a crisp outer shell and buttery, tender interior.
On the second day – yes, why wouldn’t we? – Grandma and I ordered the waffles, crisp and airy delights with banana slices, walnuts, and Tahitian vanilla-scented maple syrup.
Can you guess where we will go to breakfast tomorrow?
