Get your reservation fingers moving, starting Saturday, Oct. 10 at 8 a.m., Giada will finally be serving her much anticipated brunch at The Cromwell.
Still one of the hottest tickets in town, Giada De Laurentiis has been promising to add brunch since her restaurant's July 2014 debut. Served Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. you can either opt for à la carte selections or go down the "carefully curated tasting menu" route.
For $45, you get to overindulge with a menu featuring "an assortment of pastries; an antipasti platter with eggs benedict deviled eggs, mini pizza di pasta and brussel sprouts crostini; an entrée and a dessert selection of limoncello souffle with buttermilk gelato, a leaning tower of chocolate and espresso or a lemon ricotta cookie ice cream sandwich with raspberry and buttermilk gelato."
À la carte options include two new dishes, lobster hash and the Italian chicken & waffle. The hash features "marble potatoes, Nueske’s bacon, large pieces of lobster meat, peppers, tomato, onion confit topped with two sunny side eggs and a side of toast." The waffle incorporates a Giada favorite, chicken cacciatore, then adds "Parmesan and chive crusted polenta waffle that guests can dip in cacciatore sauce or traditional syrup with a side of lemon butter."
House-made pastries can be ordered individually or in a basket of five, including banana muffin with chunks of banana baked in, a polenta muffin, a savory bacon corn muffin topped with crème fresh, an orange sticky bun, and chocolate croissant monkey bread.
Their twist on brunch favorites includes the Salmon Cake Benedict with "wilted spinach, piquillo peppers and poached eggs with Prosecco hollandaise sauce," tenderloin sliders served with a pepper jelly and the Sunrise Polenta Waffle stacked with "pancetta, chives, two sunny side up eggs and a side of both béchamel and noble maple syrup."
And because it is brunch in Las Vegas, "limitless La Marca mimosas" are available for $30, plus "valued price" bottles of Moet & Chandon, Ferrari and Veuve Clicquot. Other afternoon tipples include a "Bloody Mary made with RIPE cold-pressed Bloody Mary mix, Giada’s signature sangria" and bellinis.
