French fare with an American flair comes at Favorite Bistro, the newest restaurant opening on The Linq Promenade on Dec. 20.
Executive chef Adil Slassi, formerly at Lavo at the Palazzo and the former Payard Patisserie & Bistro at Caesars Palace, takes over the kitchen, while pastry chef Claude Escamilla brings the desserts, and U.S. founder Jeremy Decherchi brings the restaurant stateside from Paris.
The 2,500-square-foot restaurant features social banquettes, bistro tables, and a patio that spills onto The Linq Promenade.
The menu includes a surf and turf with lobster or shrimp choices, as well as short ribs bourguignon, cassoulet, and lamb shanks. French onion soup joins the hangover burger served with caramelized onion, Swiss cheese, bacon cheese curds, and a fried egg, served on a brioche bun.
Favorite Bistro plans to serve brunch on Saturday and Sunday, featuring menu items including brioche-stuffed French toast, liege waffle, lobster Benedict and more. Favorite Bistro will also offer a changing selection of homemade pastries and desserts.
Wines come from Domaine la Rouillere winery, the company’s own vineyard, with a selection of French and American varieties on the menu. They join a cocktail list offering French classics with a twist.
The restaurant plans to be open Sunday through Thursday, serving breakfast from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. lunch from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and dinner from 4 to 10 p.m., and on Friday and Saturday serving brunch from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and dinner from 4 to 11 p.m. The bar will remain open until 1 a.m. and through 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. Favorite Bistro will offer a daily happy hour from 3 to 5 pm. and a late-night happy hour from 10 p.m. to close.
