Dominique Ansel Debuts an Exclusive Cronut Flavor for Vegas Launch

Plus, Echo and Rig sets an opening dates

Dominique Ansel shook the doughnut world when he invented the Cronut, a fried and frosted croissant-doughnut hybrid with flaky layers. Nearly ten years later, he is finally opening a Las Vegas location for his pastry shop and bringing his treats to the Las Vegas Strip. The Cronut flavors vary monthly and by location, with flavors like cherry jam and cappuccino, Earl Grey ganache and Okinawa black sugar ganache, and mango and milk chocolate surfacing on the menus of the bakery’s other locations in recent months.

Ahead of the October 21 opening of Dominique Ansel at Caesars Palace, the James Beard Award-winning pastry chef has revealed the first Cronut flavor: lucky cherry Chambord and caramelia. Taking inspiration from the cherry symbol found in slot machine games, the Cronut is filled with a cherry Chambord jam and a creamy caramelized chocolate ganache. The Cronut will be available through November and will cost $7.99.
