Las Vegas Eats | 3 Satisfying Spots You've Got to Indulge In

3 for 3: A+ restaurants on the strip for brunch, dinner, and dessert. 

Brunch

It's a Saturday in Vegas. Understandably, you'll wake up considerably late after your full night whylin' out until sunrise. You'll crave cheesy eggs and syrupy Belgian waffles, halfway hungover and upset when you turn over and read it's nearly 1:00 or 2:00pm, undoubtedly past breakfast time around these parts. No worries! Hash House a Go Go is right here.

If you're like Dri and me, you can't go anywhere without doing brunch (we've already told you that like five times, you say? My bad). Well, your desires shall not got unmet. Grab your sunglasses, down an Advil or two, and head to the mid-strip's Quad Hotel, finding the Go-Go located towards the back of the casino.

Hash House is like an upgraded Cracker Barrel, with fresh & fancy farm food on the menu and an industrial flare in its decor. Its Saturday and Sunday brunch is served until 5:00pm -- plenty of time for you to sleep off last night. Their french toast -- “griddled fresh and dipped in banana cinnamon cream w/ pecan maple syrup” -- was muy, muy delicioso!

Dinner

Not too far from Hash House a Go-Go, just outside of the Quad Hotel, is the brand new Linq strip mall. I love this slice of the strip for its chic storefronts and trendy restaurants. Head here and you'll find Brooklyn Bowl, one of said new eateries, which happens to also be a concert venue and bowling alley all in one.

So far, I've only gone for the food, and more specifically, the chicken. Can't ask for much else than some good ol' friend chicken and dranks. I wouldn't even lie to y'all... my friend Britney and I both agreed that their fried chicken hit. the. SPOT. I was impressed. It was well-seasoned with that savory home-cooked taste, reminding me of my mom's famous fried chicken. Whoever cheffed up their recipe must have some soul in them. Kudos Brooklyn Bowl.

Dessert

Still keeping you center-strip (right across the street -- nice and convenient for you), my final suggestion for your day's eats is Payard Patisserie and Bistro in Caesar's Palace. The French pastry and chocolate shop in the midst of the Roman mega-resort offers all sorts of tempting goodies, ranging from truffles to macaroons to fruit filled crepes.

Payard’s ornate build resembles a mini chocolate factory, rich in dark fudge-brown hues and structures. It drew me in immediately, because well, I'm in looooove with the coco! (Trap music reference -- if you have no idea what I'm talking about just forget I ever typed that.) By no surprise, I opted for a chocolate crepe, which came topped with fresh strawberries, powdered sugar, and drizzled with a savory white sauce. I had to take a second just now to close my eyes for a moment of silence in commemoration. It was that good. If you’re feigning for the sweet of taste of France, say "oui, oui" to Payard's.

I do realize these options aren't very health conscious, but that's not what you go to Vegas for...It's Sin City for a reason! Bon Appetit!

Kristen Noelle

I consider myself a softly eccentric urbanista. I’m quiet by nature, and I’ve generally always had a mellow laid-back vibe. However, when it comes to my preferences for fun, my style, and my overall thought process, I get a bit more eccentric. I like stepping out of the box of normalcy -- but without forcing anything. I’m a thrill junkie and I live for things that get my adrenaline pumping, such as riding on top of party buses in New York City and hanging off of skyscrapers in Vegas. I spring for bold hues, colorful prints and patterns, and a relaxed look that gives effortless-chic. I like exploring new places and capturing exciting sites. I’m a creative, with a million different ideas running through my mind each day. Whether I’m designing waistbeads, imagining up new clothing concepts, envisioning my next business venture, or planning my next adventure abroad, I’m always thinking of how I can create something great. Being raised in the suburbs but not far from the city and constantly traveling, I developed a love for the best of worlds. The calm and the crazy. The easy-going and the always-buzzing. The soft and the eccentric.
