Kick-Start Brunch with Sopapillas
If it’s going to be the first thing you eat at brunch, you might as well make it sweet. DW Bistro’s New Mexico Sopapillas are pillows of donuts, fried to perfection, generously sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and piled over sautéed cinnamon apples. Topped with fresh whipped cream, the sopapillas are served in fours… which is good because you’ll want more than one.
DW Bistro, 9275 W. Russell Road, Las Vegas. 702-527-5200
LAVO Brunch Pizza
Now that the day clubs have closed for the cooler season, the LAVO Party Brunch kicks into high gear at Palazzo. From 2-6 p.m. Saturdays, drapes are drawn closed, music is amplified, girls are dancing, drinks are flowing and the menu of brunch items is enough to put one to slumber after the party is done. But it’s daytime, so party on. A house specialty is the scrambled egg and smoked salmon pizza, which comes on a rectangular flatbread, with mascarpone goat cheese and fried capers. It’s a hearty lox and flatbread that will stand up to any libation.
LAVO Las Vegas, inside Palazzo, 3325 Las Vegas Blvd., Las Vegas. 702-791-1800
Coconut White Russian
Imagine sitting on one of the leather loungers inside The Dorsey, the chic bar inside the Venetian. It’s an intimate and a relaxing place to spend a couple of comfortable hours. What would you order? Think: deep, dark and seductive and order a Coconut White Russian. Go ahead and stick your pinky finger out and cuddle up to familiar flavors of coffee with a surprising creamy twist from the tropics. Ah that’s just what the doctor ordered!
