Whether you’re looking for an intimate affair to share with close family or a sumptuous culinary feast, chances are Easter brunch in Vegas won’t disappoint — or leave you hungry.
A tradition for locals and tourists alike, consider the Stratosphere’s Top of the World. One hundred and six floors above the Strip, the romantic atmosphere and international entrees prepared by Chef Rick Giffen are a glorious treat for your eyes and taste buds.
“Top of the World has a big draw on Easter because we offer our guests a one-of-a-kind dining experience,” Giffen told the Vegas Guide. “With 360-
degree views of the entire Las Vegas Valley, it is one of the best places in the valley for celebrating special occasions and our offerings always live up to it.”
Ranging from $29 to $59, the award-winning revolving restaurant will serve three special items on the holiday: smoked salmon Boursin cheese Belgian waffles with lemon zest maple syrup and artisan greens, braised lamb shank osso bucco with butter poached lobster polenta and sautéed asparagus, and Aspen Ridge prime rib of beef with spring peewee potatoes and tarragon butter.
“My inspiration for Easter always comes from memories as a kid growing up. For the menu, I want our guests to enjoy the classics, but with a twist of current culinary trends,” Giffen said.
In the mood for traditional brunch classics with a contemporary Mediterranean twist? Head over to Cleo at the SLS Las Vegas. Their all-you-can-eat Easter menu is priced at $49 per person, excluding beverages, taxes and gratuity. For an additional $19, guests can also enjoy bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marys from the trendy eatery’s signature mixology program, which uses fresh juices and ingredients.
And finally, no trip to town is complete without a stop at a neighborhood buffet. The Bistro Buffet at the Palms Casino Hotel will offer their famous champagne brunch for just $25 per person the weekend of March 27. Count on food stations to have more selections than usual, including crowd favorites like leg of lamb, maple glazed ham, omelets, crepes, sushi, crab legs, oysters, shrimp, quiche, cheese and charcuterie.
