Avocado toast. It’s a dish comprised of two basic ingredients, yet it’s often the most creative, and popular, item on the menu. Perhaps the breakfast staple is the result of avocado-obsessed millennials. Or maybe the credit belongs to Instagram for creating a platform that often seems to exclusively feature photogenic brunches. Or maybe the combination of creamy avocado and toasted bread is just that amazing.
Whatever the reason for the avocado toast craze may be, here are five places to order it in Las Vegas this weekend.
An avocado toast-centric restaurant
Avocado toast takes center stage at Toast Society. The bright and airy Spring Valley restaurant specializes in gourmet toast options including the house favorite made with avocado, crumbled feta, sea salt, and microgreens and the Just Beet It, which features avocado and roasted beet hummus. There’s even a toast flight option, which allows diners to enjoy half portions of three different toasts.
Toast Society, 6005 S. Fort Apache Road, Suite #110; 702-538-8951
The urban toast spot
Tucked away in a cozy Downtown nook, Smooth Eats serves swoon-worthy avocado toast that begs to be Instagrammed. There’s the Afternoon Delight, which is topped with avocado, goat cheese, strawberries, and balsamic, and the California-inspired S.D., which features avocado, sun-dried pesto, and cilantro. For a toast that’s almost too beautiful to eat, diners can order the Oasis Toast, which features vegan cream cheese, Blue Majik spirulina, and a swirl of sliced avocado.
Smooth Eats, 124 S. Sixth St. #160; 702-331-6888
A decadent option
From Dirty Fork blueberry pancakes to guava cream cheese topped French toast, Dirty Fork does a lot of things right, but the one breakfast item it’s most famous for is the Vegas-style avocado toast. The appropriately fancy take on avocado toast features fresh avocado, smoked salmon, and a poached egg on multigrain toast.
Dirty Fork, 3655 S. Durango Drive; 702-982-2111
Every day brunch avocado toast
Chef Timon Balloo’s Sugarcane offers an eclectic array of plates featuring raw dishes, entrees cooked over an open fire grill and traditional kitchen items. The restaurant offers brunch every day with a rich avocado toast made topped with charred corn and whipped goat cheese. Egg can be added for an additional $2.
Sugarcane, Venetian, 3355 Las Vegas Blvd. S.; 702-414-2263
Avocado toast and a little extra
Since opening in 2015, PublicUs has dazzled in-the-know locals and tourists who aren’t afraid to wander out from beneath the Fremont Experience canopy. The sunny space serves espresso drinks and creative cuisine, so it’s no surprise that the avocado toast is just as lovely to look at as it is to eat. PublicUs’ smashed avo toast features sourdough bread topped with avocado, guajillo pepper spread, yuzu, roasted tomatoes, and poached egg. The dish can be upgraded with Portuguese sausage and crispy potatoes for an additional $2 each.
PublicUs, 1126 Fremont St.; 702-331-5500
