Brunch at Giada in Las Vegas

 

Vegas is an amazing place for food. With so many people coming from all around the world, there is an amazing range of food available here. Since moving here, I have probably gained way too much weight, but my soul is happy!

SO to the joint. Giada is located at The Cromwell on the strip. It’s a little casino right next to the flamingo. The restaurant is located up top on the corner, facing the strip. After walking through the casino, you find a giant staircase that leads to Giada. My friend Deb and I got the best table in town. The windows were open, facing the Bellagio fountains, and it was a perfect 67*.

The restaurant itself is exactly how you would picture her restaurant to look like. Chic, light, airy, with some hip Italian décor. It’s very cozy and a great chill out space.

Deb and I decided the brunch tasting menu would be best. You get to try the best of everything for a great price. I’ve never tried Chicken and waffles so this seemed like a good time to try lol.

This is the current brunch tasting menu, but I’m sure it changes often. So we both shared the antipasti plate, then each ordered our choice of main dish, then dessert. We wanted the bottomless mimosas, but alas we had to get the kids later 😦

HOLY MOLY. Freaking AMAZEBALLS! Each coarse was just enough food and easy on the eyes. I see the appeal to Chicken and waffles now. Sweet and savory! The meal was offered with almond butter and fresh muddled jam. It was all enough until we got to the soufflé with buttermilk gelato. It was so heavy and heavenly, almost impossible to finish.

     Overall, I would say this is a definite  must do when you come to the strip. Any food network fan will get a kick out of this place, but the food is good too lol.
